“Close your eyes - open them - pinch yourself - yes it really is this beautiful.”
Reviewed February 24, 2017 for a stay in February 2017

We have traveled extensively and experienced so many different locations and accommodation but when my husband found this dog friendly lodge I really couldn't believe it would/could be this stunning. All I could think was "Thank goodness we booked this pad on our return trip to and from Christchurch"
It is idyllic, it's peaceful, it's unique, it's a find that will last in your memory forever.

“We all highly recommend the Rathmoy Lodge Experience”
Reviewed November 2, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

The river side location is absolutely superb as is the standard of the accommodation, and we were especially glad to be able to have our dogs with us who just loved playing in the wide open spaces:-))

“Spectacular Experience”
Reviewed September 17, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

I cannot recommend highly enough this fantastic establishment. We entertained a large group of people here and everyone had an outstanding time. Not only is it located in a peaceful setting with incredible surroundings, the lodge itself is fully furnished to a high standard containing everything you could need. Everyone in our party had an incredible time. Thank you very much to our hosts Mark and Andrea. We will definitely be back.

“Paradise in the Rangitikei”
Reviewed August 9, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

This was my second time staying at the lodge and, as before, it was impeccable.
The house was incredibly clean on arrival and we were made to feel welcomed by the owners who came down a couple of times during our stay to make sure everything was okay.
Whilst the weather was not great, the house was really warm and was a joy to come back to after work.
I would definitely recommend this house for all occasions, whether it be a business trip, friends' getaway or a family holiday. Would love to come back in summer.

We spent an enjoyable 2 days at Rathmoy. The lodge was fantastic, sitting in front of the open fire with a wine really capped the day off. The location was stunning,

“Awesome relaxing long weekend getaway”
Reviewed March 31, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Stayed at Rathmoy for 3 nights over easter and really enjoyed our time. Lodge was lovely - open fire, awesome kitchen, comfortable bedding. We were shown how to use the clay thrower, fished in the river and caught trout and took our dogs out an about on the farm. We will definitely be back!

“Rathmoy Lodge Team Building Experience”
Reviewed September 6, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We chose Rathmoy Lodge for our company review and strategy session. The lodge with the open fire provided the perfect environment for this event. Mark and Dan then provided a great pheasant shoot and clay bird experience up the gorge. Fishing in the Rangitiki was surprisingly easy with a rod and spinner also. We will most definitely be returning soon.
