Fern Ridge is a private two-bedroom redwood log cabin surrounded by native forest in the Maungataniwha Ranges, offering self-catering luxury accommodation.

This is a beautiful accommodation. So quiet and peaceful! Just the sounds of birds and nature. Very romantic, a special place to celebrate our anniversary. Erin and John are so very very kind and generous. Thank you for the breakfast supplies and lovely bottle of wine! Thank you for taking us fishing on ninety mile beach. What a great experience!!...
