Snow-capped ranges, silver-green olive trees, springtime blossom and daffodils, warm, summer lavender….all can be seen from the balcony of the main bedroom of The Gatehouse at River Grove.

Steven and Chris are happy to offer two-bedroom, self-contained accommodation over-looking the olive trees at River Grove. Downstairs you will find a small kitchen with two gas burners and a microwave, a dining area with a full-size dining table and a comfortable lounge area with television. The bathroom, containing a shower and separate toilet and a washing machine is also downstairs. Upstairs are two bedrooms. The main bedroom has a queen bed and a single bed and the second bedroom (which is accessed off the main bedroom) has two single beds. All linen is supplied.

River Grove lies beside Wairarapa’s biggest river, the Ruamahanga. The river is great for swimming for most of the summer and is good for trout fishing. We are close to many pleasant walking tracks and less than half an hour by car from the Tararuas if you enjoy tramping. The beaches at Castlepoint (famous for its lighthouse and annual beach races) and Riversdale are a slightly longer hour’s journey to the east.

The Gatehouse at River Grove offers a rural setting close to town. We are less than four kilometres from the Genesis Energy Recreation Centre and indoor swimming pool, Queen Elizabeth Park, the CBD and the fine cafes and restaurants Masterton has to offer. Beautiful Henley Lake and the hospital are less than 2.5kms away and we are also close to most of Masterton’s boarding schools.

So whether you are visiting Masterton for one of Wairarapa’s many fine events or just for a weekend away, we welcome you. Our rate is $160.00 per night for two people, plus $20.00 per night per extra person.  There is a two-night minimum for long weekends and public holidays

We look forward to sharing our little corner of paradise with you.
