Department of Conservation (DOC)

Natural Log Homes
A NZ company based in Geraldine, Natural Log Homes was where Cascade Creek Retreat first started. All of their custom log homes are built from natural logs, and all logs are fully scribe-fitted to each other. All log home shells are handmade, and the notches and grooves are scribed and cut by craftsmen, not by machines. That’s why they call themselves “Natural Log Homes” — Our homes are 100% natural and made by hand.
Pukerau Nursery is recognised as one of the principal growers of native plants for shelter, revegetation and landscaping in the lower South Island. Owner-operator, Arne Cleland, has specialised in growing native plants for over 30 years, thus acquiring an extensive knowledge of “the right plant for the right place”. A large promoter of ‘Eco- Sourcing’, we at Cascade Creek Retreat work closely with Pukerau Nursery to ensure we are collecting from our own habitat and growing these to be placed back in their true home…the “backyard” of Cascade Creek Retreat.
