Situated only 30 minutes south of Fox Glacier and 50 minutes north of Haast, and surrounded by the magnificent South Westland landscape, this boutique lodge featuring various West Coast native timbers, provides an intimate atmosphere where guests are treated to the utmost hospitality. All guest rooms have ensuite bathrooms complete with heated floors and mirrors, bathrobes, hairdryers and toiletries. There is also a fully self contained suite available suitable as a family unit. Enjoy our selection of local cuisine, fine NZ wines and John’s complimentary interpretation tour of the area. Its all here - fishing, hunting, bush walking, the beach and wonderful photographic opportunities - and it’s peaceful as well.
