We offer four options for accommodation consisting of the North Stable, South Stable, Loft, & Stall. Both the North Stable & the South Stable are self-contained luxury lodges, with each one comprising of a fully equipped kitchen, spacious lounge, dining area, beautiful bedroom, & a luxurious bathroom. Each Stable has a late model heat pump to keep the lodge warm & toasty on chilly winter evenings, with a cooling facility in the hotter months. In addition there are ceiling fans in the living area & bedroom. French doors off the bedroom & lounge open out onto a large private deck - the perfect spot for a glass of wine while taking in the stunning views of the surrounding hills. The back door of each Stable opens out to the pool area: consisting of a large swimming pool, bubbling hot spa-pool, shaded cabana, loungers & reclining chairs - with the wonderful steam sauna situated close by. Both Stables are tastefully furnished with many individual touches to ensure your stay is comfortable, relaxing & memorable! The North Stable & the South Stable each have a quality Weber barbecue for exclusive use on the private deck.
The Loft is a wonderfully set-up, compact & comfortable studio-style room. It has a kitchenette & excellent views. The Stall is a basic guest-room attached to the main house, & is ideal for those people simply needing a bed & shower for the evening. As well the Stall is perfect as an extra bedroom/bathroom if you are bringing older children, friends, or parents. The Stall is a guest-room only & therefore has no kitchen facilities, food preparation area or living area.
We are incredibly fortunate to be situated right next door to stunning Maungakawa Villa so can provide two more luxury rooms (with a private spa pool) if needed.
Booked guests in any of our four rooms have full access to the swimming pool, spa pool, sauna & yoga/meditation space (bookings essential if wanting a yoga or meditation session).
Conveniently located near several sports venues, Huntington Stables Retreat is ideal for travellers needing accommodation for rowing, equestrian, polo, bowling & cycling events. It is also the perfect base for those wanting to visit Hobbiton, Mystery Creek, Maungatautari (Sanctuary) Mountain, Rotorua, Taupo, Raglan, or Waitomo Caves. The rooms & facilities are also excellent for small or intimate retreats, workshops, or artistic endeavours, plus we are only three doors up from Zen Medi-Spa & Wellness (massage & facials).
With an aim to live more 'mindfully' we encourage guests to enjoy the beauty of the semi-rural setting & hills beyond, the abundant bird life, the pool, spa, & sauna. We do our best to reduce waste in regards to water, power, plastic, & rubbish and we strongly urge guests to help towards this.
