Two couples visited for lunch 5/1/18. Very friendly and efficient staff welcomed us. The High Country Platter was superb. Local produce presented beautifully. Wonderful views of the lake and mountains. Highly recommended.

Very special place and super-friendly staff. The Lodge is in a very quiet location just above the lake, with mountains rising up behind. The view from our room was spectacular, with Mt. Cook in the distance. It's very quiet here, and the night sky was...More
