We have just spent a weekend at the Summit Lodge.
We arrived Friday afternoon had an evening meal and picnic lunch Sat and breakfasts Sat/Sun.
The stay was excellent in every respect and in particular the food was the best we have had anywhere in the world. The local wines were great and very well priced. The meals were prepared by the host Tracy and they could not have been better mostly homegrown or local fresh food.
The Summit is in a quiet and peaceful setting with all facilities one needs for a peaceful time and we spent Sat at Castelpoint at the beach horseraces which was a great day out. Would thoroughly recommend The Summit to anyone wanting a quiet time away. The local town of Greytown is well worth some shopping time.

Thank you so much for your feedback - we are so pleased you enjoyed the meals and your stay. Jim and I both love cooking and it is great to know that it is appreciated. The local produce is extremely good and finding recipes that do it justice is one of the joys of hosting...clean plates are another very satisfying result! Tracey

My wife and I spent a few days at The Summit Lodge for a getaway in the Wairarapa region. We could not have been more thrilled with our stay. After spending time in a variety of spots in the Wairarapa, The Summit was far and away the most beautiful spot to relax for a few days. The grounds and lodging are simply spectacular. Better yet, Tracey and Jim were absolutely fantastic hosts. Their wonderful personalities (and their amazing home cooked breakfasts) made us feel right at home. Only a short drive from all of the major towns in the Wairarapa (Martinborough, Masterton, etc.), I would highly recommend The Summit to anyone looking for a relaxing getaway.

As soon as you drive up the driveway you know you are in for a great stay! The rooms are very comfortable and finished to a very high standard. Your wonderful hosts just think of everything and are brilliant! The breakfast..... mmm! It set us up for the day and had lovely home made jams etc. There was four of us on our stay and we all will certainly be back! If you want an exceptional getaway.... The Summit Lodge!

We recently had a wedding of our close friends to attend in Carterton over the weekend, and our stay out here was amazing. Tracey dropped us off to the wedding and organised our taxi back to the lodge after the reception. She was an excellent host, cooked an amazing breakfast and made sure we were well informed of the available attractions, wineries and points of interest in the area.
It was an enjoyable experience and our room was perfect. Thanks for an amazing weekend.

Room Tip: all of the rooms are perfect, and the spa pool under the stars is the best!

thank you so much for your kind words, and yes, the spa is pretty amazing (especially when the sky is clear - so many stars). Next time, stay longer and check out some of the beautiful walks in the 'rapa or check out the wonderful local wineries

We recently celebrated our wedding anniversary at the Summit Lodge and we had an outstanding weekend. Jim and Tracy are excellent hosts both very comfortable in the kitchen turning out great food. The rooms are very comfortable and warm with high standards of fittings and the big TV / surround sound system in the lounge is impressive for watching a movie from the extensive DVD collection. Highly recommended for a quiet weekend away in the lap of luxury.
