This new architect designed house is perched on a hill and looks out over Lake Te Anau to provide a breathtaking view - it was wonderful to wake up to. The accomodation was spendid - comfortable and to the highest standards, and Joan was an excellent hostess providing tips on where to eat and what to do as well a storing our luggage while we went off on an overnight stay on Doubtful sound. Good to be out of town as short distance too.
- 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
