Stonefly Lodge
Reviewed 9 December 2011

My husband and I visited the Stonefly Lodge on our honeymoon last year. We loved it so much we went back for a full week of fishing this year. John and Kate are fabulous hosts. We feel like we are visiting old friends when we stay there. The lodge is amazing and the food is off the charts. Any and every need and want is cheerfully accommodated and the fishing is 5-star. We plan on making a trip the Stonefly Lodge an annual event.

Reviewed 27 April 2011

Stonefly is a relatively new (opened in October '09) lodge about 45 minutes south of Nelson. The owners, John and Kate Kerr, obviously carefully planned and built the lodge, which accomodates a maximum of eight guests. The lodge is "off the grid" and generates its own hydro and solar power. The facilities are top notch. The food is superb, prepared by a talented chef. The fly fishing guides are excellent, and the range of activities within an hour's drive is impressive. By the end of our stay we felt more like friends than guests or customers.
