Without doubt LLM has to be the most welcoming and relaxed 'home' (B&B doesn't really do it justice) I have ever had the pleasure to stay in. Absolutely fabulous location in which to chill (and in our case recuperate from 5 days camped in the 'wilderness'').... I can't thank L&G (and the children) enough for welcoming us into the family...... More

Lakeside Lodge is a must stay if you travel to south island. We had a bad weather when we did the abel tasman walk in a heavy raining day. My husband and I were completely wet and felt so tired when we knocked the door of Lakeside Lodge. Graeme gave us a very warm welcome and let us feel like... More

We wholeheartedly recommend Lakeside Lodge! There's a reason it has so many excellent reviews. Graeme and Lisa are perfect hosts -- so welcoming, relaxed and friendly, and really fun people. It's a beautiful property and filled with wonderful farm animals. We even got to help feed the chickens and pigs! Lisa is also a fabulous cook, I'm still thinking about... More

We stayed at Lakeside Lodge for two nights. We chose the B&B because of it's close proximity to the Abel Tasman coastal walk. However the lodge was a holiday experience in itself. From the driveway greeting by the two adorable hounds, to the picture postcard views in every direction. Hosts Graeme and Lisa were warm, gracious, fun and informative. We... More

Lakeside Lodge is a warm and welcoming place in a peaceful, quiet location. Graeme and Lisa are wonderful hosts, as are their three children who very ably pitched in to run the lodge and farm. We really enjoyed their company and conversations at dinner and breakfast, and the walks around the property with Bailey and Bertie, the amiable dogs. Our... More

Lakeside Lodge is in a beautiful setting with wonderful hosts, Lisa and Graham. The food and wine were delicious which saved us having to drive into the nearby town and we were made very welcome. There is much to explore nearby.

My husband and I stayed at the Lakeside Lodge for 2 nights and seriously we could have stayed on and on. The setting is beautiful, Lisa and Graeme could not have been more accommodating and breakfasts were fantastic, but most important of all was the genuine kindness and attentiveness of both Lisa and Graeme.

We stayed two nights at this lovely B&B. We arrived tired after a long drive. With very short notice Lisa & Graham put together a delicious platter of asst. meats/cheese/fish/bread/cucumber salad made from the garden for us. We sat on the back deck enjoying the view. Best table in town. That saved us a drive to town. The home is... More
