Stayed one night at Kauri House Lodge, a faithfully maintained Edwardian kauri villa. Everything perfectly matched right down to the silver butter knife with the breakfast bacon and eggs. Owner Doug's knowledge of New Zealand period furniture, bush conservation and farming was an unexpected bonus. Highly recommended.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Original features of this 1880's style villa include the detailed veranda balustrading, stained glass, pressed ceilings, sash windows and native Kauri panelling. Completed in 1910 by a leading bushman as a spacious family residence, Kauri House Lodge offers a unique experience in a stately home with antiques. A must on the way to the Kauri Forest. ... more less
