We stayed at Furneaux Lodge after our first day on the Queen Charlotte Track. I wish I could take credit for having found this place, but we were booked into it as part of our 4-day Queen Charlotte Track Hike & Paddle with Marlborough Sounds Adventure Company. Coming off the track, we would have been happy with just a hot shower and a bed. Instead, we got an absolutely stunning and very comfortable suite with gorgeous views both front and back. The design is completely modern, clean, and elegant. The lovely decor and setting were matched by the excellent service and delicious food. The friends we traveled with declared dinner at Furneaux Lodge the best meal they had in NZ. I can't eat dairy and was delighted with the delicious dinner prepared for me. The chef had been working on a dairy-free dessert recipe that he let me try, an excellent avocado mousse. Doesn't sound like a dessert, but it was delicious. Our server was both very professional and charming. I would love to come back and spend more time in this beautiful place.

It looks out over the calm, clear water of the bay, embraced by virgin native forest, unchanged since Captain Cooks first visit in the inlet in 1769. Here at the lodge, the pace is easy, comfortable and relaxed. Ideal for the complete retreat. ... more less
