Located only 10 min drive from base of Mt Ruapehu, 30 min from National Park. The Old Courthouse is a historically rich and welcoming place to stay and is the perfect location to make your next skiing trip or any other year round activities.

The space

The main lounge/dining area was once the actual courtroom with the original Judges bench as the kitchen bench. It's an enormous space, but it's kept cosy and warm with ultra-efficient wood-burner that's connected to huge cast-iron radiators throughout the house.
This room is one of 2 standard rooms with 1 Queen bed & 1 Single bed that comfortably fit 3 people. We also have a Deluxe room with the mountain View on "Airbnb" if you are interested.
Children older than 5 years are welcome.

The old courthouse is full of charm and character. We stayed in the Turoa room which was warm and the bed was super comfy. Loved the little sofa area upstairs for guests and you can make your own tea and coffee up there too. Bathroom is great with lovely hot shower, perfect after a 20k walk! Mika is a great hostess and makes the best cooked breakfast. She will also do dinner if you prefer to stay in, handy if you don't want to drive to Ohakune in the evening. A most enjoyable stay.

Mika was a wonderful host and it's a beautiful home. Mika was very helpful in suggesting the eateries around the place, also very good at giving directions. The breakfast was amazing and the quantity was very generous, also to add Mika bakes her own bread and it's out of this world. I definitely will be going back next year.

What a lovely secluded little spot, and a great place to rest up either before or after hiking the Tongariro Crossing. The room was very comfortable, and more than met expectations. Mika was a wonderful host, and recommended some great spots to grab dinner in nearby Ohakune. Breakfast was lovely as well :) Thank you Mika!

We really enjoyed our stay at The Old Courthouse; Mika made us very welcome and provided a delicious breakfast for us before we left the following morning. This was an experience as the dining room is situated in the original Court Room and Mika's kitchen is the original Judge's Bench! We had a very nice bedroom for our stay and found the property to be situated in a lovely quiet area. An enjoyable stay. Barry and Colette Gwynne
