The couple of days that i spent here were just unique. This place doesn't give you a lavish room, you even don't have a private bathroom. But all that doesn't bother me because both me and my wife had loads of fun sitting in the common fireplace and talking to people and sharing our stories. The host, Rodd is just so cool. He makes fun of people working in IT but that's fine. He is a wonderful person with lots of stories. The place has a beautiful lawn as well and the communal kitchen has everything that you can possibly need. You might miss your privacy, but trust me you will have a lot of fun. This is my fixed spot for Wanaka whenever I go there.

Cosy wood panelled room, the best bed I had in New Zealand in 3 months, super-organized kitchen with all the pots and tools you can need, and even a dishwater!

Everything clean and tidy. Beautiful garden and a family feeling that made feel at ease.

Highly recommended.

We stayed for two nights and our room was spotless as were the communal bathroom and shower rooms. ,kitchen facilities were super.
Nolene and rod were very welcoming and helpful.
The lodge is great for walking into Wanaka or driving further afar to do day hikes in mt. Aspiring.

Room Tip: The rooms have nice outlook onto a garden area.

We stayed with our 6 month old daughter and the hosts were very friendly and accommodating!

The facilities were exceptionally clean and the kitchen was well equipped!

The hosts were full of helpful information about the local area and the walk to Rocky Mountain via Diamond Lake was fantastic!

I couldnt agree more with the rave reviews. This place is really a cut above the rest - spotlessly clean and you have your own space in the refridgerator and storage. Rod provided many helpful suggestions and made every effort to make our stay delightful. the kitchen and the common living spaces are simply wonderful. There was another group who were a lot of noise pretty late at night and Rod very rightfully asked them to lower their voices keeping the other guests in mind. i couldnt recommend this place enough.
