Our group of 7 adults stayed 2 nights at the lodge and we all enjoyed ourselves tremendously. It is a quiet little retreat with a very relaxed ambience. The service was excellent and the staff were friendly and helpful. There are many trails on the property that you can explore on your own. The older folks in our group enjoyed the guided walks and the visit to the sheep farm, where we all got to feed the animals and watch a sheep shearing and herding demonstration. Dinner was especially delicious and so was the breakfast (especially the croissants - the best we've ever tasted). Our group also took the opportunity to drive out to Castle Hill and Arthur's Pass. Overall, highly recommended.
