We spent two extremely comfortable nights with Maudie and Dean who were excellent hosts. We felt at home immediately and Maudie's breakfast and evening meals were scrumptious. All this, along with a scintillating dawn chorus, fantastic starlit nights and the sound of birds in the garden. What more could you ask for? Thank you Maudie and Dean for sharing your... More

Fantastic place to stay. Maudie and Dean couldn't be more pleasant hosts. Make sure you take up the evening meal option to sample some great home cooked food and Dean's great home brew. Well appointed bedroom with a comfortable bed. Great lounge and dining area. Not only is it a great place to stay but also excellent value.

We stayed two nights here. The B&B is on a deer farm - but just off the highway. The Food, the company - excellent. It was a little tricky to find but well worth it. Our GPS did not pick up Shenandoah Highway, but the B& B is signposted and on the left hand side as you travel along route... More

Maudie and Dean made us feel like home the moment we drove up to the lodge. The couple from Australia who joined us later were a perfect fit, so the 6 of us had some very interesting conversations, before Maudie served us some 'home grown' venison, wine and after diner drink. Next morning we enjoyed a first class breakfast before... More

We had marvellous breakfasts and that first night we shared a super yummy tea with Maudie & Dean as well...they made us feel real welcome & 'part of the family'!

We very much enjoyed staying with Maudie and Dean on their property alongside the river Matakitaki. A beautiful drive to reach them and a very attractive house in their farmland where they breed deer. We had an excellent supper and breakfast with our hosts - and enjoyed Dean's home-brewed beer! We had a lovely room overlooking a flower-filled garden. The... More

We were so lucky to pick this fab B and B to stay in. Maudie and Dean are just lovely people and so warm and welcoming. Their place is so peaceful and pretty. Maudie is a wonderful gardener and her garden is superb. We had an evening meal with them, what a delight, fantastic cook is Maude. Sadly Maudie was... More

This is the hidden secret of Murchison. The place is like a dream, the hosts are so lovely people. You really envy of them that they can live in a place like that. We felt ourself more like family members than travellers.

Wonderful hosts with our one night stay near Murchison. They helped us redirect our travel plans which saved us a ton of $$!!! Thank you so much. The breakfast was amazing. I required no food for the remainder of the day due to the generous portions. Beautiful grounds and wonderful hike at the edge of their property!
