The Owner's Cottage

One of the world’s most exclusive hideaways, offering the best of both worlds, total independence and privacy as well as all of Huka Lodge’s amenities.

The Owner’s Cottage at Huka Lodge sits on an elevated and sunny promontory above the spectacular Waikato River, within the grounds. Virtually completely hidden from view, this secluded hideaway enjoys stunning views downstream to the mighty Huka Falls.

Four superbly decorated spacious en suite guest rooms are anchored by a central living room, dining area, kitchen and den. The colour palette is deliberately muted with elegant use of soft cream and caramel hues for the walls and bleached oak wooden parquet floors throughout. This all contributes to an ambience of calm restful relaxation within the Cottage.

The Cottage displays work by some of New Zealand’s foremost artists – Max Gimblet, Mervyn Taylor, Don Binney, Paul Dibble and Dick Frizell to name a few. The entire retreat is furbished generously with unique pieces chosen for their comfort, beauty and history – like the wonderful 1920s French oak chairs in the living room.
