“Amazing place to stay!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2005

My husband and I spent our honeymoon at the Evergreen Lodge in Queenstown and we can't stop raving about it. It was an absolutely fantastic lodge with a breathtaking view of the mountains and lake. Tish was equally wonderful , allowing us to enjoy our stay as she booked all of our excursions and was remarkable at reccommending excellent restaurants!!! Truly an amazing trip thanks to Tish!!!!

This was our favorite of all the places we stayed during our October honeymoon in NZ. There are only four rooms, so the lodge is quiet and private. The hostess, Lavinia, is superb. She has traveled all over the world, living in Japan and New York, among other places, and she provides perfect service – helpful and attentive, but not overbearing. Evergreen Lodge is beautifully appointed with stunning views of the lake. The breakfasts are sublime, as are the delicious snacks and wine set out for guests in the late afternoon. Evergreen Lodge would be a wonderful place to stay for any visitor to Queenstown, but it is especially perfect for honeymooners. We can't recommend it highly enough.

A sheer delight, from the magnificent unobstructed views over the lake to the mountains beyond, the sophisticated but very relaxed surroundings, to the privacy, peace and tranquility, and then there's Lavinia and Brett , fine company and first class service... outstanding!

Evergreen Lodge truly has become our home away from home in New Zealand. This was the last stop on our honeymoon and by far our favorite -- 6 nights did not feel like enough! The lodge is located just two or three minutes easy drive outside of the center of Queenstown, but that makes all the difference -- it is extraordinarily quiet and peaceful there, perched above the lake with spectacular unobstructed mountain and lake views. Lavinia is an amazing hostess, catering to her guests' every whim -- she makes restaurant and excursion recommendations and reservations as well as wonderful conversation -- and Brett cooks delicious gourmet breakfasts to get the day started right. The guestrooms are very spacious, comfortable and homey (with incredible views); the bathrooms are luxuriously appointed; and there is always a lovely little afternoon snack waiting for you upon your arrival back at the lodge from your day's adventures. We have done a lot of traveling between the two of us and have stayed in a lot of places, but this was our favorite. If you're going on a honeymoon or a NZ getaway and are looking for cozy but luxurious and amazingly affordable accommodations with a personal touch in a gorgeous setting (and who doesn't?), then this is the place for you. We can't wait to go back!!!

We just returned from our vacation to New Zealand and our stay at the Evergreen Lodge was one of the highlights of our trip. Everything was better than our expectations - from the picture postcard views to the made-to-order breakfasts. Our room and bath were extremely spacious and it seemed that every amenity desired was at our fingertips. When our activity plans changed with the weather, our hostess Lavinia was incredibly gracious and professional in handling the details.
It was so hard to leave, and we would definitely return!

This lodge was recently renovated and looks great. The rooms are huge by any standards. The bedding is delightful. The bathrooms--with separate bath and shower--are bigger than most hotel rooms. The view from the mid-level room was amazing--an unobstructed view of the lake and mountain. The best part, though, is the service. The owner of the Lodge is also the general manager and she takes exacting care of her guests. Every morning we requested her to book several activities for the day with no notice and she handled it with ease. In addition, her pick of chefs was dead on. The lodge's chef is young, which gives him the fire to create inventive dishes and to do it with aplomb. The other added benefits are great internet access, a large selection of DVDs, CDs, and travel books, and a nicely equipped workout room.

Evergreen Lodge is one of the best B&Bs in New Zealand - from the fantastic views to the delicious breakfast to the wonderful Lavinia - we were spoiled.
