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.
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’ve been happy to return to The Doug each day to the comfort and relaxing vibe. Looking forward to returning during a bumper snow year. Thank you for the great hospitality.
An inspirational mountain retreat you’ve created in The Doug, so warm and cosy.
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 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!
Absolute luxury in the mountains, thanks so much!
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!
Thank you so much for last minute accommodations at your beautiful home! The weather was great and our family loved the rocks at Castle Hill. We only wish we had more time to explore this amazing area. Next time…
Thanks for a wonderful stay. What an amazing house – worthy of a feature on Grand Designs!
You have the most beautiful and unique house. This place really added to our perfect wedding weekend; we will be back whenever possible.
Thank you so much for your wonderful hospitality – we had such a comfortable night and luxury shower. Your house is wonderful.
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.
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 absolutely loved our stay here and would have extended it if we could have cancelled our other reservation!
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.
Have watched the growth of The Doug over the last years, but nothing prepares you for the awesome reality. Really a fantastic place.
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.
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!! 🙂
Great time, sadly not much snow but was still amazing. We very much enjoyed The Doug and hope to be back soon!
