Fresh Egg Retreat is a secluded rural bed &
breakfast/homestay in the heart of the Wairarapa, a two-hour drive from
New Zealand's capital city of Wellington.
Relax in our Finnish sauna, swimming pool, or cozy
lounge with open fire, or have a workout in our complete home gym.
Gourmet 5-course evening meals and lavish cooked breakfasts are included
in the room rate.
Two large guest rooms with queen-size beds and private (ensuite)
bathrooms. Minutes from two beautiful beaches, golf courses, vineyards,
and hiking trails. Six private acres of peace and relaxation!
At Fresh Egg Retreat, you will find the comforts of
home, the intimacy of a bed and breakfast, the quiet of the country, and the
amenities of a holiday resort rolled into one.
Newly renovated and furnished, Fresh Egg Retreat offers
you a choice of two guest rooms, six acres of private bush surrounded by
regenerating forest, complimentary homemade biscuits in your room, and
espresso, cappuccino, or soft drinks in our lounge or on our large deck.
We are just minutes from Castlepoint Beach and a short drive to the
other delights of the Wairarapa.
After an afternoon at the beach or just lying on our
veranda, have a casual evening highlighted by a five-course gourmet
dinner in the Fresh Egg dining room.
The Boston Room:
This large guest room is furnished with antique oak
and brass. The room contains a queen bed, bureau with mirror, rocking
chair, and assorted curiosities, with an ensuite for your privacy.
The Cape Cod Room:
Our other large guest room, this room is furnished in
a modern, light style evocative of the coast of the northeastern USA.
The room contains a queen bed and bureau with mirror, plus a small
sitting area. An ensuite ensures your privacy.
A spacious, inviting room filled with ways to add
relaxation to your stay. Nap in an overstuffed chair, or rock in the
warmth of the cozy open fireplace in our antique birds-eye maple
rocking chair. Read one of our hundreds of books or magazines, play a
tune on the piano, or select an enticing movie to watch from our large
video collection. The lounge opens directly onto the wraparound
veranda, for lovely views of the surrounding Wairarapa hill country.
Besides our comfortable guest rooms and delicious meals,
we offer for your enjoyment several other amenities.
- The Fitness Room: Stay in shape while on holiday! In
our complete home gym you will find all you need to maintain your
fitness routine. It features a multi-weight station and weight
bench, as well as cardiovascular equipment such as a rower,
elliptical cross trainer, and upright stationary bicycle. But don't
worry, if you choose not to take advantage of the Fresh Egg gym, we
won't make you feel guilty!
- The Sauna: After your workout -- or after just being
lazy -- eliminate your stress in our clothing-optional Finnish
sauna. There's no better way to cleanse your skin, relax your body,
and empty your mind. Inhale the eucalyptus and let your problems
dissolve. You deserve it.
- Swimming Pool: Reinvigorate yourself in our pool, or
just lie on our deck with a good book or a good daydream. A
refreshing alternative to the beach, or an excuse to show off your
new swimsuit, or just another place to take an afternoon nap -- it's
available for you whatever your reason.
Directions to Fresh Egg Retreat:
Follow national highway 2 north or south to Masterton. At the north end
of Masterton, where the highway crosses the Waipoua River (a Mobil
petrol station is on the corner), turn onto the Te Ore Ore Road, which
becomes the main Masterton-Castlepoint road. There is a sign stating
"Castlepoint 64km, Riversdale 54km". Exactly 35.7km from the
Highway 2 turnoff, look for the sign for the Mangapakeha Conservation
Nursery. Immediately (0.25km) beyond this sign, the main road curves to
the right, and Bute Road continues straight ahead. Fresh Egg Retreat is
3.7km down Bute Road, on the left.
