The Homestead

The Homestead is perfect for a family or small group gathering. Separate bedrooms provide the necessary privacy and an open plan kitchen and dining area is ideal for socialising. Built in the 1870s as the main home on the ranch, the homestead was once the staff dining building and preschool for Makarora children. Now fully modernised, the homestead offers a spacious and comfortable base for exploring Makarora.
