On the Rail Trail

A lot happened in and around Oturehua.

We had a old Airplane here for a day and a lot of people took the chance to see Central Otago from the sky.

And the old Hays Engineering place had a big open day and a garage sale.

If you doing the rail trail you should stop at the Hays Engineering place and have a look around.

It cost you only $7 and is worth seeing!!!

Best time to do the Rail Trail

If you planning on doing the rail trail,

why not in February?!

It looks like the Rail Trail gets quiet in this month…

So you get good accommodation on the trail

and can have a great time on your bicycle.

Don’t forget to book a night in the Crow’s Nest in Oturehua.

Great accommodation and good food in the Tavern just across the road!Oturehua

Rail Trail Accommodation

It has been quite interesting over the last few weeks with all the amazing people doing the rail trail.

It equally interesting how some days are busier than others, for example, you would think that weekends are busy but some weekends we have had no customers at all and the Rail Trail is very quiet.  Then, for no apparent reason Tuesdays are our busiest night.  This could be because we are positioned at the second night stop of people are doing it over three or four days.

Now however the phone and e-mail is going non-stop as more and more people enquire about accommodation.  We suggest you make your bookings sooner rather than later as we had one situation where someone enquired about space and when they called back two hours later to confirm it had already gone.

You can either use the various companies servicing the Rail Trail or contact us directly.  We still have plenty of space available even though the recent wind and rain has not put people off.

And the HOT TUB gets used more and more:

Kiwitub perfect after a cycle enough space for 5 people

Motorbikes at the Crow’s Nest

We had some BMWs and also a Harley

All types of “bikes” are welcome!!!

The first guests in the Hot Tub

This weekend was busy.  A lot of cyclist on the rail trail.

A group from Wellington enjoyed the new Kiwitub at the Crow’s Nest.

They were a group of 9 and shared the tub over the night..

It was already dark and they still relaxed in it under the stars…

That’s what you need after a day cycling.

Kiwitub, first guests in it
