We only stayed one night, but enjoyed it very much. The three king-sized rooms have all been carefully remodeled and designed, and are large and comfortable. Stephanie, the host, is warm and welcoming, without being at all intrusive. Highly recommend.

We had a fabulous stay in Alastair and Stephanie's beautiful home. We arrived to a lovely welcome from Alastair and the dogs and Stephanie had been kind enough to make dinner reservations on a really busy Saturday night. The location is stunning and the views to the lake are to die for! The breakfast was glorious including Alastair's freshly cooked...

The lodge is beautifully and tastefully furnished. Our lake view room had view of mountains and the lake. Wonderful hospitality...help yourself to drinks in guest...

Hi! Many thanks for the review and glowing accolades! Yes, Tekapo is getting much busier than we have seen in the past five years since we established this business and moved here. The days of wandering down to the village and walking in to a restaurant of choice are limited... It is easier to cancel than to reserve. So pleased...

Alistair and Stephanie proved to wonderful hosts even down to taking the initiative by reserving a table at a local restaurant for dinner. The lodge is perfectly located with panoramic views across Lake Tekapo and just a short walk to the shore. The bedroom was beautifully appointed and had the added advantage of seating outside the room in the garden,...

We stayed here on the first night of our South Island trip. It is very easy to find, just off the main road. We were warmly greeted by the owners, Alistair and Stephanie.
