The lodge is tucked away in a lovely setting overlooking the land and sea. The views are particularly beautiful from the 2 Bedroom Suite and the sunny main deck is fantastic for evening drinks and breakfast. It is very quiet and peaceful and within a walking distance to the beach, the walk to Cooks Beach is shorter than the walk to Lonely Bay Beach and perhaps a little easier for older guests. 970 Lonely Bay is approximately 30 minutes drive from Whitianga, where the main restaurants are; however the lodge offers dinner with a 24 hours notice and the wonderful host will take you to the ferry landing where you can catch a 3 minute ferry transfer. The service is continuous and it is quite fun to catch the old ferry to dinner, the boat has great character and we didn’t think our travel to the restaurant was a problem at all. The lodge is beautifully appointed, elegant, new and clean; all spaces are very bright with lots of sunshine coming through all day. Loring, the host, is delightful: very helpful, knowledgeable of the area and full of great stories! As the lodge is a very intimate, boutique property, I think it would be at its best when taken for exclusive use to guarantee privacy.
