Prospect Lodge B&B deserves a #1 rating in every way. As you will see in others' reviews, it is a gorgeous house inside and out, there are incredible views from the rooms/property,and the breakfasts are amazing. But most importantly, the hosts, Joan and Ross, welcome you in a way that makes you feel as if you have known them a long time. The rooms are luxurious and include a small refrigerator (for your complimentary wine!), milk for your coffee/tea making (also provided), heavenly pillows/beds, and first rate bathrooms with amazing showers facilities. We came to this area to visit Doubtful Sound, but it was hard to tear ourselves away from the breathtaking vistas of mountains and lake from our room (also seen in the commons areas) and also, conversations with Joan and Ross. As I look at each of our photos from here, I reflect on the memories of a most incredible experience to have stayed with Joan and Ross at their heavenly Prospect Lodge B&B!!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Prospect Lodge is owned by Ross & Joan Cockburn from Mt Prospect Station and the former Mt Prospect High Country Homestay. Following the loss of their well known homestead to fire in 2007, Ross & Joan have rebuilt on their farmland overlooking Lake Te Anau. This new lodge, opened in 2011, continues to offer the same fantastic service and luxurious comfort offered previously, only situated on a ridge overlooking Lake Te Anau, the Te Anau township and the mountains of Fiordland, a view that takes your breath away. With two beautifully appointed guest rooms with lake views and private terraces, en-suite bathrooms and luxury bedding, the Lodge is a fabulous place to base yourself while visiting Milford or Fiordland. ... more less
