We ended our busy New Zealand vacation with a week at this beautiful horse farm.It was so peaceful and relaxing, we stayed an extra 2 days, and really hated to leave. The Carriage House is a spacious, comfortable and nicely furnished accommodation (upstairs). The open windows let in nice breezes all day long, and we enjoyed listening to the song...

Management response:

Thank you Jerry and Verna it was like having good friends come and stay. As owners of a ski lodge you know what makes a good place to stay. You had owned horses yourselves and appreciated how gentle and friendly our giant Shire horses are.WE appreciated how you left everything clean and tidy. Adrian and Syylvia

We will definitely be back to...

Management response:

Karen came from Auckland and found Kerikeri was where the first settlement was made by missionaries. They built the Kemp House and the Stone Store Which today are Trust Buildings open to visit. Nearby WAITANGI is where a treaty was signed between the British and the Mauri and a vist here is a half day well spent. Manganui and Russell...
