Win and Heinrich are amazing hosts, the accommodations are excellent (both the larger house and the studio), and we loved everything about our time there. Win is as lovely as everyone says, and we had a great time going out to feed the animals with her (we still talk about Pheobe, Bob, and the alpaca that spit!). Heinrich took my... More

Win and Heinrich are perfect hosts and have created the ideal family stay in their new, immaculately clean two bedroom lodge. We arrived to freshly baked brownies and bread, fruit and chocolates, but that wasn't enough to keep the kids inside. Win spent considerable time showing us the property and helping us feed the deer (my daughter is obsessed with... More

Dusky Ridges was rated our favorite stay out of 22 days in New Zealand when all was said and done. Henrik's farm tour was a highlight of the visit to be certain. Owning a 40 acre grain farm in NW Ohio for over 36 years, I was especially curious. The rest of our group were fascinated by the details of... More

Dusky Ridges was my favorite of all the places I stayed at duing my eight weeks in New Zealand, I felt incredibly well cared for, the food was delicious, the views fantastic and I was also invited to watch the shearing of the cute little sheep. The house was like a Scandinavian House Beautiful spread and the grounds perfectly manicured.... More

We stayed for 2 nights in mid Feb in the new cottage accommodation. I made these reservations about 7 months in advance knowing how things get in Feb in NZ. Overall great value and everything you would need is here. Very short drive to town centre. We arrived to a warm welcome from Win. Fresh bread, eggs, juice, sausages,ham, butter,... More

It has been almost 3 years since my family and I stayed at Dusky Ridges, and it's still on my mind. And so I felt that I had to write a review to let any future travelers know. This is the type of place you visit and never forget. That is how incredibly wonderful this place is. Please stay here,... More

My husband and I road tripped from Auckland to Te Anau and back in two weeks (yes, we're Americans, ha) for our honeymoon last year and splurged on a one night stay in Dusky Ridges - what an incredible highlight of our trip, and a gorgeous apartment after spending the rest of the trip in hostels and campsites. We were... More

My only wish is that we had more than one night at this beautiful property; everything has been thought of. With fresh brownies, bread and muesli ready on our arrival and an absolutely amazing owner to greet us and let us know about the property and Te Anau. One of the greatest aspects of this property was its secluded nature,... More
