It took a bit of searching to find out about this Lodge, but it was exactly what I was looking for and a perfect choice. It is just as advertised so there's no false expectations. Great value, great facilities, impeccably clean. The hosts were welcoming from the moment they answered the phone to my enquiry, and their friendly and helpful... More

This is a traditional lodge with shared kitchen and bathroom facilities. Bedrooms are fine - just the beds and little else really. You won't want to spend too much time in your room though. Kitchen facilities are excellent. Lots of everything, including some things you wouldn't normally expect to find - rice cookers, sandwich toaster etc. Pantry and fridge are... More

The couple of days that i spent here were just unique. This place doesn't give you a lavish room, you even don't have a private bathroom. But all that doesn't bother me because both me and my wife had loads of fun sitting in the common fireplace and talking to people and sharing our stories. The host, Rodd is just... More

Cosy wood panelled room, the best bed I had in New Zealand in 3 months, super-organized kitchen with all the pots and tools you can need, and even a dishwater! Everything clean and tidy. Beautiful garden and a family feeling that made feel at ease. Highly recommended.

We stayed for two nights and our room was spotless as were the communal bathroom and shower rooms. ,kitchen facilities were super. Nolene and rod were very welcoming and helpful. The lodge is great for walking into Wanaka or driving further afar to do day hikes in mt. Aspiring.

We stayed with our 6 month old daughter and the hosts were very friendly and accommodating! The facilities were exceptionally clean and the kitchen was well equipped! The hosts were full of helpful information about the local area and the walk to Rocky Mountain via Diamond Lake was fantastic!

I couldnt agree more with the rave reviews. This place is really a cut above the rest - spotlessly clean and you have your own space in the refridgerator and storage. Rod provided many helpful suggestions and made every effort to make our stay delightful. the kitchen and the common living spaces are simply wonderful. There was another group who... More
