My wife and two kids stayed at Owen River Lodge for two nights earlier this month as we travelled around the South Island. Even if you don't fish, this is a fantastic place (although probably more appropriate to couples than families).
Wonderful views, five star accommodation and fantastic food and service. Our every whim was catered for. We wanted to take the kids walking one day and the staff made a great suggestion of a boat ride along Lake Rotoroa followed by a delightful walk through beech forests. They also packed a sumptious lunch - probably the best packed kunch I have ever had (although it would feed a family of six, not four!). Then back to the lodge for a swim in the river and another delightful dinner.
Very sad to leave, but will be back.More
