Join Timber Trail Lodge on their adventure


Timber Trail Lodge - Join the Adventure

Deep in the middle of New Zealand’s North Island, right in the middle of nowhere, is the beginning of a dream.

It’s the dream of a group of King Country locals who saw a great opportunity to build an accommodation lodge on the Timber Trail, to service the growing number of visitors to the area; cyclists riding the 84km cycleway, and other visitors to the historic and beautiful Pureora Forest Park.

After five long but exciting years of researching, planning, negotiating, designing, and organising a team, the Timber Trail Lodge at Piropiro is now a reality. The build is well underway, and ahead of schedule, with the roof on and stage one set to be complete for the lodge opening in April 2017.

The fully-serviced accommodation facility has a strong focus on sustainability but will offer a comfortable, wilderness experience to visitors. Warm showers for tired cyclists, drinks on the deck before dinner, clean bed sheets in your room, and lots of help and advice from the friendly staff.

This exciting project is being led by that original group of locals, plus other New Zealanders with a wide range of experience and expertise in tourism, hospitality, and business.

Their vision is to be a hugely successful, widely recognised, and totally respected sustainable tourism business. A caring and forward-looking business that provides New Zealanders and overseas visitors with exceptional Timber Trail experiences.

The business has secured private and government funding but is now looking to offer investment via an equity crowdfunding campaign in this exciting project. It’s a great business to get involved with. Both the cycling and tourism industries are booming in New Zealand, and the lodge will be operating with a strong focus on fulfilment, sustainability, and environmental appreciation.

They’ve chosen crowdfunding to raise the last of the money required as they like the idea of generating some long-term relationships and sharing these great opportunities with their biggest supporters.

Full details of investment opportunities, and additional benefits to investors, will be released in the PledgeMe crowdfunding campaign launch on Monday 14 November. Watch this space if you’re keen to support this fantastic project.
