Experience OMAKA LODGE

A lthough there are myriad ways to experience the Ruapehu District and The Forgotten World, Omaka Lodge is also an experience in itself. Omaka Lodge is a large country home designed by notable New Zealand architect, the late Jack Cantlon, one of the founders of what is now Chapple Architecture. Designed to be a family home and the main homestead for a sheep and beef station of over 5,000 acres, Omaka Lodge was built in 1977-78, largely from native Rimu timber that was milled on the surrounding station. Jack Cantlon was well ahead of his time in many respects, and Omaka Lodge has an interior that is beautiful and timeless, whilst also offering different spaces to suit a variety of needs. Signature Cantlon features include bespoke joinery, a variety of vaulted and beamed ceilings, a very steep roof pitch, and on the back door and garage doors, a large timber ‘X’.
