Mellonsfolly Ranch is home to the Old West Town, an authentic western town situated on the Central Plateau of the North Island only a short drive from Mt Ruapehu. Deliberately remote, Mellonsfolly Ranch is truly at the end of the road. Located on one thousand acres of unspoiled native bush in one of New Zealand’s hidden valleys. Step back in time and experience where the charm of the Old West mingles gracefully with the luxury of the Victorian Era. Relax and enjoy our authentic architecture, elegantly furnished rooms and cowboy cuisine. Due to the limited availability and exclusive nature of the ranch, reservations are required prior to arrival.
