A fantastic place to base yourself and explore the local area. Very well set up, warm, comfortable and inviting. All that adds up to a place that is easy – everything works as it should so you can just get on with relaxing or making the most of your time. By the time we left we were already talking about what we would do the next time we went back. Hopefully soon!
We loved it there, such an amazing house and it was all so stunning with all the snow around – beautiful place. Would love to go back sometime.
Everything was so organised and easy to find, made staying there so simple and relaxing. Perfect weekend … we absolutely loved it and want to be back there now! It’s a struggle heading back to work!
Thanks for a wonderful stay. What an amazing house – worthy of a feature on Grand Designs!
This is the second time we have visited The Doug Log House. My husband and I just love it here. The snow has been great. I love the views from this house. Look forward to coming back.
Heaven on Castle Hill!! … We found a beautiful log cabin on a hill, filled with love and memories from previous residents and its owners. We have had such a lovely, relaxing weekend… We will definitely be back! Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us.
Another pack of Aussies returned to The Doug for a longer stay to enjoy the skiing and Castle Hill. We enjoyed settling into The Doug and making the most of this awesome log home. I fear I will yet again have to drag [my partner] away at the end of our stay. The kids love the playground at Castle Hill, especially the tree which is slowly growing into a tree house. We hope to return again next year, or [maybe even] fit in a fishing trip later in the year. Can’t say enough about The Doug, we love it! Thanks for letting us stay.
Absolute luxury in the mountains, thanks so much!
You have the most beautiful and unique house. This place really added to our perfect wedding weekend; we will be back whenever possible.
Thanks again for a great stay; it’s a mint place you have!
Thank you so much – your house is fantastic – we had a wonderful 4 nights – and were so warm! Lots of room and the kids loved the foosball table.
I relax as soon as I walk in the door! Another terrific holiday at The Doug. Such a homely place to make some special memories. Thank you!
An inspirational mountain retreat you’ve created in The Doug, so warm and cosy.
Beautiful home in a beautiful place! We loved having The Doug as our home away from home for a couple days. A lovely way to end our three week holiday in stunning New Zealand! Thanks!! 🙂
Thank you so much for your wonderful hospitality – we had such a comfortable night and luxury shower. Your house is wonderful.
We had an amazing time; no snow but loved the house, trampoline, day trips. This place is magical! Can’t wait to come back.
We were completely smitten with your gorgeous home. It is by far the most user friendly and welcoming holiday home we have ever encountered. Thank you for sharing The Doug; it is quite magical and full of great energy.
A great find and a perfect family retreat. Us pack of Aussies loved The Doug and Castle Hill.
We are already planning the next trip back; it will be longer so that we can explore more of the area and enjoy this wonderful place.
A great place to have an extended family event. We all had an amazing time. The weather really turned it on too. And the mountain-biking? Fantastic! We’ll be back.
We absolutely loved our stay here and would have extended it if we could have cancelled our other reservation!
We’ve really appreciated how cosy the house is, and also how easy it is to manage gear, kids, meals etc in the house. It’s wonderful to come up and be reminded of these beautiful places so close to home.
