HOW’S THE SERENITY?
Luxe local escapes like nature intended
Inspired by local backcountry South Island huts, High Country Cabin in Ben Ohau — halfway between Christchurch and Queenstown — provides a unique wilderness experience. This stylishly decorated cabin, set alone on four hectares in the heart of the Southern Alps, provides direct access to all the iconic natural amenities the area has to offer, including snow sports, mountaineering, hiking and tramping, mountain biking and fishing. Or if you feel like holing up for a few days in front of the log burner with your significant other for some well-deserved R&R, no one’s going to stop you. Cost: From $160/night
