We traveled to many places in the North and South Island and this was by far our favorite place we stayed. From the moment we walked through the door we felt overcome with a sense of serenity. Paul and Berny were gracious hosts and knew everyone in Wanaka. They helped us with a lot of our activities. The rooms were very cozy, beds plush, and extremely clean. They were very eco-friendly as well which is very important in New Zealand. We woke up each morning drinking coffee in the room and looking at the mist over the river and hills through our sliding glass door. The sun hit the maples and their orange color was truly gorgeous! They cooked the freshed breakfast each morning (again best we had our entire trip). The room fee also includes free parking and free wireless internet. Many of the places we stayed had extra charges for this so it was nice to have it included in the room fee. The lodge was about 5 minutes drive from downtown Wanaka. This was very nice since parking in Wanaka is very easy and you have a sense of privacy. Another fun thing was they had a hot tub in the back. We relaxed and watched the night stars in the sky (since this is slightly out of town you could see all of the formations and the milky way). We also took walks around the lodge trails and saw the beautiful nature and sheep herds. We would defnitely stay here again on our next trip! Don't waste your time staying anywhere else this was the best of the best.
