Stay at The Doug Log House
Built from solid Douglas Fir logs, with a strong emphasis on good passive solar design coupled with plenty of unique quirks, our warm and cosy holiday house sleeps 2+ families in comfort, and serves as a perfect base to explore the Castle Hill Basin and further afield, with a myriad of tracks (tramping and biking), ski-fields, rivers/streams, mountains, etc, all waiting for you, topped off with plenty of fresh air, calm weather and clear skies.

What a house, just another quality NZ built log home, so warm and inviting! Top notch foosball table too!
Awesome house, awesome everything! Loved staying at The Doug Log House.
Have driven past Castle Hill for years and decided to call in for a stay – amazing house, absolutely loved it and fantastic village, will be back again to stay!
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.
Our annual holiday to The Doug and skiing Porters and also for the first time at Cheeseman. It’s been a great few days, always love Castle Hill, leaves us dreaming about owning our own patch of NZ soil one day! Can’t wait to be back, kids love it and are not wanting to go home. 🙁
Beautiful spot! Away from the hustle + bustle. Quiet! Fantastic!
Lovely honeymoon escape for a few days. Thank you! Beautiful place! Would also recommend for big groups looking for an escape.
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 had an absolutely magical wedding and stay at The Doug 🙂Everything was just perfect!Thanks so much!!!
Fabulous time had by all at The Doug. It snowed on Saturday! We will be back.
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 for letting us use your lovely home in such a spectacular spot.
Always enjoy this cosy + quiet getaway for our anniversary. A beautiful place for two busy parents to hit the “reset” button.
Amazing stay, magnificent views and biking activities, overview of the idyllic NZ central plateau. Catered very well for a large family. Thanks and Happy New Year! Great facilities (kitchen well stocked with utensils, etc), a great spot. Had a great family reunion.
Awesome place, shame it was only for 2 nights! Will be back. Absolutely perfect for kids – plenty of amusement while parents went biking. 🙂
[Castle Hill] is truly an amazing place and such a special house to stay! Thanks so much.
Fantastic long weekend – plenty of snow men, snow fights, snow running & peak bagging! Great house, we really enjoyed our stay! 🙂
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…
Lovely house, we have had a fantastic time staying here. Thank you. 🙂
