Buchanan Lodge is situated on 60 acres of land designated as an area of outstanding natural beauty. It is beautifully secluded - 30 mins outside Wanaka. The garden leads down to the lake where there is a delightful pebble beach. The lodge sleeps 9 people upstairs (2 doubles, 2 twins and 1 single), and has 3 modern bathrooms (2 ensuite with the doubles and 1 family bathroom shared between the twin rooms and the single room). Downstairs is a wonderful open-plan living area with state-of-the-art facilities (kitchen at one end, living room at the other with a gorgeous open fireplace, and a double-height dining area in the middle). There is also a downstairs cloakroom and laundry room. It is the perfect spot to enjoy a family holiday, a break with friends or a romantic honeymoon.
