My wife, her 15 y.o. son, his BFF and I stayed at Dock Bay in August 2013. Adding another excellent review for the Dock Bay Lodge is kind of like carrying coals to Newcastle. But here we go. If you are going to be going to Te Anau accommodations simply do not get any better than this!! (And if you are going to NZ you should be going to Te Anau, the best jumping off spot for visiting Fiordlands and Milford Sound). We think that the NZ Tourist Board should create a new category of properties just for magnificent places like Dock Bay. The views of the lake back dropped by the snow capped mountains will stop you in your tracks the first and last time you see it (and all the times in between). Dawn and Mark are gracious and charming hosts who welcome you into their home as if you were personal friends. The Lodge is spotless and has picture windows everywhere so that the magnificent views are with you not only in your own personal space but in the common areas as well. Such piece, such tranquility, such ambience. Dawn creates cooked to order breakfasts to start your day of exploring the spectacular Te Anau area. Oh yes, there is also Colin, their playful Jack Russell Terrier and the real ruler of the Lodge. Join him in the back yard for a bit of fun while you listen to the symphony of the local birds at sunrise. Any regrets - only that our visit was for a single night. Next time it will be longer. Thank you Dawn and Mark for sharing your very special home with us.
