This comfy lodge, a ‘luxury B&B’, is like a home away from home, Kiwi style.

A few streets back from the main township of Wanaka, the property is an oasis of calm, with comfortable rooms, fine mountain views and an 8-seater garden spa bath to admire them from.

The staff are a fount of knowledge about Wanaka, and operate a great activities desk, making this an excellent base to explore from. There are also a couple of in-house mountain bikes for guests’ use.
