Just five minutes from Alexandra town centre and Otago Central Rail Trail is the luxurious Log House Retreat... Nestled amongst the schist of Central Otago with a backdrop of native pine, first impressions inspire awe and you will feel at peace and rested. This charming two-storey natural log home — the largest in New Zealand — offers you warm, relaxed, spacious living, luxurious amenities with private spaces and wonderful surroundings. Many unique features await your inspection, such as the amazing log staircase with its spectacular tree roots intermingling with the tiled floor, mountain views, private courtyard with large spa pool and a stunning deck that has been used for many classic kiwi barbecues. The Log House Retreat in Alexandra took one and a half years to build — a long–held dream by hosts Marg and Jack. The Retreat also offers small intimate wedding services, wedding nights or honeymoon vacations.
