Myself and my husband went to stay in Prospect Lodge for 2 nights during a recent trip to New Zealand for our honeymoon. Before getting to Prospect Lodge we had been staying in hotels and so it was a wonderful change to stay in a B&B. This place is a couple of minutes drive outside of a lovely little place called Te Anau. From the moment we arrived Joan and Ross were very welcoming. They were kind and chilled and we instantly felt relaxed. The lodge itself is wonderful and the views from it are simply stunning. Joan makes a yummy breakfast so you won’t be leaving the place hungry. We would have loved to have gotten to stay even one more night if we could. Hopefully we can get back again in the future as this really was a wonderful little find in a lovely spot. Would highly recommend.

This was by far the BEST place we stayed during our recent trip to both Australia and New Zealand. First of all you will be "taken" by the view from the back of the lodge and secondly, you will LOVE the hostess--we want to thank Amy who provided warmth, a great breakfast every morning and was a joy to spend time with. The accomodation is a work of art and I felt like we were in a home that was so tastefully done and elegant yet comfortable at the same time. The room and again our view was fantastic and it was a very short drive into the town of Te Anau. We felt like we did not want to leave the grounds or the house for our pre-planned touring activities and hikes!! Would give then an A+ on everything....thank you again Amy for your hospitality and make sure you contact me should you come to NY!

Prospect Lodge is an absolutely delightful B&B located 4-5 kms outside of Te Anau, gateway town to Milford Sound and Queenston, NZ. It is a gorgeous country home designed and built by locals Ross and his wife Joan who’ve farmed this area for decades. The house is built with huge picture windows all overlooking Lake Te Anau and the majestic mountains beyond. The two guest suites are beautiful. The house was designed beautifully by their interior architect daughter Rebecca. Five Star rating—don’t miss this one!

Prospect Lodge is an elegant B&B just outside Te Anau. Our room was spacious with a wonderful view. The bathroom was fantastic; I wish I could take it home. Breakfast is lovely. Joan, our proprietress, was very helpful with dinner reservations.

I rarely use this word because no place could match up to this place in our well travelled life. But it is. The Lodge is an architects dream, eye popping gorgeous; the hosts are perfection from Joan who is an amazing gracious, funny, warm, great cook to Ross who is full of agri knowledge, funny things to stay and kindness. They are the best hosts we have ever experienced. We want them to come and visit us in Virginia or St. Croix. They are that amazing. You want them in your family. The house is unparalleled— you have to go and see it to believe it and this morning they helped arrange for us to have a local pilot pick us up on their back lawn and take us to Dusky Sound and Doubtful Sound— truly the trip of the life time. DO IT! There were wonderful touches throughout the Inn a choice of three hot breakfasts as if we didn’t have enough delicious fruit, granola and cheese and croissants and juices.....and it was the first place in 10 days that we had actual linen napkins! The rooms had fridges, covered patios, water, tea, coffee and Joan made the most delicious walnut chocolate chip cookies...... oh my we have gained 10 pounds on this trip. they helped us arrange dinner in town and taxis’s as were were drinking wine and didn’t want to drive. This is hands down the best B&B we have ever visited and that is saying something. Book early— there are only two rooms! You will be speechless when you see it. We were— but they make it all so easy and relaxed. Kudos to you and Ross Joan — we hope to come back someday— if not have a wonderful life and visit us in the U.S. We MEAN it!

Hi Terese Thank you so much for this amazing and generous review, we are so pleased that you loved Prospect Lodge. We are very grateful to live in such a special place in NZ and love sharing with guests from all around the world. You obviously know how to holiday, the choice to fly over some of Fiordland's incredible sights is such an amazing thing to do, and is a very special way to experience a Fiordland not many people get to see. We would love to see you back here someday! Thank you again for your wonderful review, it really makes our day when we receive such positive reviews. Kind Regards The Prospect Lodge Team
