Here’s our top pick for cute and cosy accommodation in Franz Josef Glacier. These delightful handcrafted chalets at Kahere Retreat are so cute and cosy you’ll be inspired to take design notes during your stay. The wooden chalets are all lovingly built with individual features such as leadlight windows, polished wooden benchtops and pebble mosaic bathrooms. Their wooden decks are a tranquil spot for watching the sunrise, sunset or star gazing. The cabins are beside a river and set amongst trees and gardens with rural and mountain views. The upside of this rural accommodation is that they’re only six minutes’ drive from Franz Josef Glacier village. The only downside is having to check out.
