We really enjoyed our 3 night stay at The Pear Orchard Lodge. Unless you need to be in Nelson city, staying in the Richmond/Hope district is much better for access to the Abel Tasman park, wineries and other nearby towns. Timo and Olivia have crafted an excellent little lodge set-up here, a very relaxing place as others have said, surrounded by regenerating bush. Breakfast on the porch under passionfruit vines was a daily highlight. On quiet occasions when we weren't off in Mapua or the Abel Tasman, our daughter loved hanging out with the chickens or walking around the pear trees. All up, an ideal holiday base.

We're really pleased to hear that you and your family had such a good time here at The Pear Orchard Lodge. We couldn't agree more about what you say about the location being preferable to urban Nelson, if you can make do without the urban buzz. Come back some time in the future! Btw. we have just completed building an outdoor lounge, to make the lodge even more appealing for families and groups enjoying the peaceful location.

I stayed here with a group of work colleagues for the best part of a week, and we were very impressed. Timo was a very welcoming and helpful host, and the setting and overall feel of the place is idyllic. I can honestly say this is by far the best place I've ever stayed in for work. Highly reccomend!

Really enjoyed our family stay at the Pear Orchard. As a large family group we booked out the main lodge, which was perfect. There was plenty of space and plenty of bathrooms for us all which made our stay comfortable. The setting is beautiful, the decor is clean, simple and stylish and the kitchen had everything we needed. Overall a great lodge for a large group of family or friends.

We were lucky enough to have the place to ourselves the night we stayed - Timo was welcoming and friendly, and then left us to enjoy our beautifully furnished bedroom and bathroom, plus the well set up kitchen/dining room complex, opening to the patio and lawn area. It’s all sparkling clean and very comfortable, and in a very good location with the orchard/rural setting making for a relaxed stay. Breakfast was absolutely delicious - that warm sourdough bread, the homemade yoghurt and of course the stewed pears from the orchard were such a treat! Highly recommended.
