Mountain Spirit
Reviewed 11 May 2017

We were so lucky to find this B&B jewel! We couldn't have asked better hosts than Amanda and Randall. They made us feel right at home and were happy to give great tips of things to do in the area. The B&B is surrounded by stunning nature on all sides with mountains beginning in the backyard and views of Hawea and the lake ahead. The sleep out provided everything we needed and was clean, tidy and comfortable. You couldn't go wrong staying here just to relax or as a hub to explore Central Otago.

The Richards family was extremely welcoming and helpful yet allow visitors all the space they need to relax and unwind. Facilities are great and very comfortable. I would thoroughly recommend Mountain Spirit to anyone needing peace and quiet in an incredibly beautiful part of Otago.

My husband and I had a wonderful stay at Mountain Spirit. The hosts, Randall and Amanda were extremely welcoming giving us a tour of the property and spoiling us with fresh apricots and cherry plums from their orchard. The cottage we stayed in was spotless, well-decorated, comfortable and had everything we needed including a cute outdoor kitchen and patio. The view onto the property was beautiful with a lovely garden surrounded by mountains. The location was perfect, close enough to the main part of town in Wanaka but far enough away to be peaceful. We would love to stay again in the future.

We had a most pleasurable experience! This little organic farm has a great spot just beneath some mountains and close to lakes. We went hiking up the hills right through the back door.
We had a little cozy house just for ourselves and ate breakfasts with the family. The food was healthy and delicious, some of it form their own organic produce.
The family is very friendly, we felt most welcome. They showed us around and gave us some great hiking tips.
We enjoyed the way the farm is run - having their own solar panels, water from a stream and growing a lot of healthy food.
We can only recommend it!
