If you have been fortunate enough to experience the private fishing and hunting lodges founded around the world in late 19th and early 20th centuries, you will know what to expect when you visit the Lake Rotoroa Lodge. If you haven't had this experience, I recommend it enthusiastically. At LRL, you will be treated as a member of a club, not a passing traveler - warm, friendly service, excellent food, unobtrusive attention to your needs and interests. If you like to fish, you have some of the best NZ trout rivers to choose from and excellent guides. If not, Bill and Jenny can arrange almost any other activity you can imagine - I particularly recommend the hiking. The Lodge has been updated recently without losing its charm and "clubby" feel.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Along a quiet country lane that winds its way through the Gowan River valley lies Lake Rotoroa Lodge. It is nestled at the northern tip of New Zealand's spectacular Southern Alps.This isolated and unspoiled location is surrounded by the forests of the Nelson Lakes National Park. Lake Rotoroa is considered the jewel in the crown of the park: its tranquil waters reflect a magnificent vista of snow-capped mountains and lush native bush.From the lodge's idyllic and romantic lakeside location, guests can gaze along the length of Lake Rotoroa to the towering peaks of the Travers Range, and lapping at the foot of the lodge lawn, the waters of the Gowan River may just cause them to become lost in thoughts of some of the world's finest brown trout fishing that can begin just a few short steps away. Enjoy this stunning view from the lodge's open-fired sitting room, dining room or, indeed, from many of our guest rooms.The Nelson Lakes National Park, with its alpine environment, is just one of three National Parks that surround the city of Nelson (1½ hours away). The Abel Tasman National Park is coastal (offering some of the very finest, golden beaches in the world, together with the internationally renowned Abel Tasman Track) and New Zealand's most recently designated National Park, Kahurangi, is one of the world's great wilderness environments. There are times of the year when it really is possible to swim in the ocean in the morning and ski in the mountains in the afternoon! ... more less
