“Perfect!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 July 2012

Mt Potts Lodge is situated in one of the most beautiful spots on earth. No joke. Scenes from the Lord of the Rings were filmed here but this place is great for both LOTR and those people who just want to feel closer to the beauty of nature. We stayed in the cabin and it was nice and warm on a very cold July day. Easily accessible roads to get here, yet it is totally isolated. Just a great experience overall.

Mt Potts Lodge is in by far one of the most beautiful locations I've ever been. The mountains surrounding it are stunning. We had a wonderful stay, and as my boyfriend proposed while we were there, the ranch manager, Matt, brought us champagne to help us celebrate. The cabin we stayed in was clean and had the cutest pot-belly stove that was perfect for the cold weather. We can't wait to go back next time we're in New Zealand!
