“Intimate and cozy accommodations...”
Reviewed 8 March 2014

My wife and I had a king room facing the back upstairs in the lodge this month during our overnight stay. We were happy. It was homey, cozy, and featured two wonderful people working to check people in and provide recommendations for the area. They also served a tasty full breakfast. We also enjoyed chatting with fellow guests at the large breakfast table. The wifi was free and fast as well. The great reviews that preceded mine were accurate. Stay here and you'll be happy with Wanaka.

Room Tip: Facing the lawn or backyard upstairs adds a pretty backdrop outside the window, though the lake isn...

The owners are helpful and nice, dave knows a lot about local activities and was very helpful in deciding what to do. Breakfast is nice - cereal and cooked.
The room was nice, although fridge and kettle are communal and only downstairs.
Laundry facilities are free.
Location is 1 min drive from town, just along the lake.

Thank you for providing a great experience to us this time.

I visited for the first time in Wanaka.
But look at this Lodge and Lake Wanaka, came to like Wanaka at first sight.

Always, for us who live in Tokyo called "Concrete Jungle",
it was with a splendid experience not to be possible for words.

Hospitality and facilities of the lodge, there was a very warm.
It was Lodge itself of a foreign country in which he longed to see in the picture book as a child.

Particularly, I had Douglas of the dog heal it very happily.
Because, Douglas is because it was exactly like my dog ​​who died.
I did not think that I could come across the dog which resembled him in a far-off country possibly.

Also I went on a trip to NZ always near future,
I will stay in this lodge at that time.
I want to live longer at that time in Douglas.

We spent two nights here and would highly recommend this place. It felt like staying in a home with friends! Quaint setting near the lake and close enough to walk to town. The rooms were clean and comfortable and breakfast was prepared to order! They even went out of their way to prepare a fresh fruit dish without pineapple when they over heard I had an allergy to pineapple! Truly wonderful people manage and operate this lodge to ensure your stay is enjoyable and relaxing!

And even though the hot tub had no bubbles, it was a great place to relax under the Wanaka stars!!!

Hosted by Ed, duty manager and previous owner we were made to feel very welcome and relaxed from check in to departure- the building and rooms are very comfortable and the location is great being away from the hubub - yet a short walk around the lake to get there
- shame we didnt have more time to use the free bike hire
Nice to get free wifi and Douglas their resident dog was an added delight
How about using some seeded bread for the toast at breakfast? :)
- highly recommended

Very dated room with no air-con, a hole in the ceiling, broken blinds and broken kettle to name some faults. Turns out that the "Continental breakfast" is cereal, no joke there was 4 choices of cereal and a bit of fruit! The hot tub doesn't have bubbles, it's just a heated pool. If it wasn't for the bathroom I'd have given this place 1 star. My girlfriend and I have stayed in much nicer places for much less money in New Zealand. I have no idea how this place is ranked number 2 for Wanaka. Nowhere near good enough for what I paid! Really upset

Had a great one night stay at the Wanaka Homestead in January (wished we could have stayed longer). Lovely settting just minutes walk from the lake set in lovely grounds. The welcome was perfect, helpful and informative. We were lucky enough to stay in the Master room - a very large room with huge bed and large ensuite with walk-in shower. All was immaculately clean and well presented. We had breakfast in the morning, all the guests eat at a large farmhouse style table together which was really nice because everyone chatted (the breakfast was gorgeous). Wouldn't hesitate to recommend.
