Skylark Cabin is private, luxury accommodation, nestled serenely within the awe inspiring landscape of backcountry Ben Ohau. Surrounded by soaring mountain ranges and the rugged, ethereal beauty of the expansive views, this isn’t just a comfortable place to stay while visiting Mackenzie Country, it’s an experience in itself.


"Gently nestled into the tussock grasslands of the Ben Ohau Range foothills sits Skylark Cabin, a tiny home measuring in at less than 50sqm. But don’t let its small size deceive you, this home doesn’t skimp on creature comforts or wow factor in its architectural offering."


Spend a night under the stars... Named after the birds that nest on our property, Skylark Cabin is architecturally inspired accommodation, built in 2020, and thoughtfully designed by award-winning architect Barry Connor to make the most of the awe-inspiring vistas that surround you.


Skylark Cabin is fully equipped with everything you need for a comfortable, luxurious getaway for two, but also comes with that sense of simplicity that gives you the space you need to feel blissfully removed from the rush of every day.

Be humbled by the big landscape that surrounds you.  Connect with nature and escape from the pace of daily life. Located in the world-acclaimed Aoraki Mackenzie Dark Sky Reserve, Skylark Cabin is perfectly positioned for both action and relaxation.

Soak up the spectacular surrounds and witness the mesmerising clarity of the starry night sky. Be awed by the beautiful blue colours from the glacier-fed melt of the Southern Alps.


"One word: unique. And truly unique. In an age where everyone's BnB is 'unique', Skylark cabin stands out as genuinely one-of-a-kind. It has so many amazing features, the location, the architecture, the bedroom sky window, the amazing cedar bath, I could go on and on but it would just sound cliche.

We ate out every lunch and dinner in NZ EXCEPT at Skylark cabin - we didn't want to leave just to eat, so we bought food and buckled down in the cabin. If you have the chance, you MUST stay here. To top it all off, Liz and Garry are amazing hosts who were responsive, checked-in to make sure we were okay and settled, and offered us useful local knowledge and tips."
