Beautiful Lodge. Amazing location

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 29 Aug 2023
The lodge is absolutely beautiful set between native bush and the lake. Lovely furnishings reflecting the period /style of the lodge. Exceptionally comfortable bed. Very friendly and welcoming host who went above and beyond taking us to see the glow worms at night. The hot tub was a treat Dinner was delicious and breakfast plentiful.

Reviewed 17 August 2023

I stayed in the cottage for one night with my husband and our young baby.
Our only regret is not staying longer.
The cottage is the perfect mix of rustic off the grid living (gas cooking, wood fire with wetback) with just enough modern touches (Netflix and wifi) to keep anyone happy.
The business is family owned, and it shows in the care and attention the staff pay to their customers.
Walking distance to lake Brunner for fishing or walking, and a great restaurant on site.
Highly recommend to anyone.

We stopped in for lunch on Sunday and were warmly welcomed by Brenda. We had the crispy buttermilk chicken burger, chips, and a glass of wine. All was delicious.
We had a nice and leisurely lunch which was efficiently served by the lovely waitress. Perfect for a spontaneous Sunday drive.
We had been there last year and had heard the property owners had taken over the business, which was very obvious by the improvement of both food quality and excellent service. We will be back. Highly recommend.

What a beautiful old Arts and Crafts building with very spacious rooms overlooking the lake.
The setting is beautiful and there are lovely short walks nearby.
It just needs to be run by devoted enthusiasts….

Really awesome spot located off the beaten track. Beautiful old Lodge in a very tranquil surroundings. The manager was very knowledgeable about the surroundings and the West Coast in general. As a bonus the two dogs that live on site were very friendly and full of character. Would return.
