Attractive miniminalist design lodge with three delightful rooms. Lots to do especially if fishing, and hiking are your interests. Two beautiful canine hosts accompany Wendy and Steve who endeavour to make your stay comfortable and memorable. Dinner a culinary delight using local fish and meats and amazing veggies from the garden. Murcheson an interesting town with a fantastic museum.

Thank you for the review, mollys grandma. Oscar and Shadow really enjoyed your stay, it was a shame Oscar was on enforced kennel rest during your stay but he did enjoy the short walk and the doggie treats! More

We had a marvellous stay. The lodge is set in beautiful bush high on a hill above the Matakitaki valley with stunning views to the surrounding ranges and across the river. It’s an eco-lodge with solar panels, elegantly and carefully designed to fit with its environment and catch the sun all day - and the beds are wonderfully comfortable. There... More

Thank you Helen, we certainly enjoyed the time you both spent with us. Glad you enjoyed the range of walks that Murchison has to offer, and a spa bath, glass of wine, good meal and comfortable bed rounds off a perfect day! More

Korimako is located in a beautiful and peaceful valley, where the views are stunning whether it's rainy, sunny or cloudy. The lodge is wonderfully secluded and tucked into a hillside, making it very quiet and tranquil. Steve and Wendy are great hosts and excellent company, as are furry friends Oscar and Shadow who were only too happy to take us... More

The location of the lodge is splendid for outdoor activities in the surrounding areas. The lodge is in a quiet area at the almost end of the valley lovely situated on the hill slopes. Kea and other birds can be seen in the forest and hilsites. The food made by the lodge owners is very good and made of local... More

Steve and Wendy Wood were very welcoming and sociable and made sure we were very well looked after. The dinner we had was delicious - I was very impressed. The peace and beauty of the area was incredible and provided... More

We enjoyed two nights in a spacious, comfortable room. Wendy and Steve were very attentive and helped provide tips for walks in the local area. The meals were excellent and the wine too. Ideal location for nature lovers and travellers who prefer a quiet retreat. Would love to stay again!

Surrounded by nature, we spent a restful night at Korimako Lodge, which offers a quiet and romatic environment. The hosts are very nice and caring, the rooms neat, the views astonishing... The best night of our whole trip.

We had a great stay with Wendy and Steve Wood at Korimako Lodge. One of the highlights was a special dinner prepared by Wendy for our wedding anniversary. Dinner was served out on the upstairs deck with spectacular mountain views down into Murchison. I'd caught a trout that day and Steve had prepared it in the smoker - absolutely divine.... More

We had an overnight stay here at this B&B. Steve and Wendy were very gracious hosts and did everything to make our stay as an enjoyable as possible. The views from the balcony of our beautifully appointed bedroom were truly breathtaking. And we did enjoy having our evening meal cooked by Wendy - that was a bonus! We thoroughly recommend... More
