Great time, sadly not much snow but was still amazing. We very much enjoyed The Doug and hope to be back soon!
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!! 🙂
You have the most beautiful and unique house. This place really added to our perfect wedding weekend; we will be back whenever possible.
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.
An inspirational mountain retreat you’ve created in The Doug, so warm and cosy.
Awesome house, awesome everything! Loved staying at The Doug Log House.
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.
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.
Absolute luxury in the mountains, thanks so much!
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.
Thanks for a wonderful stay. What an amazing house – worthy of a feature on Grand Designs!
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!
We absolutely loved our stay here and would have extended it if we could have cancelled our other reservation!
Thanks again for a great stay; it’s a mint place you have!
Un séjour agréable dans une maison très confortable. Nous avons adore les chocolats au retour devant la cheminée.
Tout est vraiment fonctionnel, nous reviendrons avec plaisir.
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!
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.
Our first trip to NZ! Castle Hill was the second place on our tour of the South Island, and we couldn’t have picked a more beautiful house and place to stay. We’ve had a wonderful time and will not forget this place in a hurry.
We had an amazing time; no snow but loved the house, trampoline, day trips. This place is magical! Can’t wait to come back.
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.
