Stephanie and Alastair made us very welcome. The rooms are comfortable, the breakfast excellent and their art is fabulous. They are well located for a short walk down to the lake where the views are stunning I could move in!

From our U.S. home, we had researched local inns online and chose Lake Tekapo Lodge on a whim. What a happy whim it turned out to be. Stephanie and Alistair are as perfect hosts as one could wish. From the warm welcome to the best wishes at our departure, we felt so comfortable and at ease. Since we are book...

Our hosts were very friendly, welcoming and helpful in recommending the excellent Kohan restaurant before our night visit to the Mt John observatory.

Thank you so much for your kind words and we are really pleased you enjoyed your stay here in the Mackenzie.
