Lakeside Lodge near Motueka
In pretty countryside 15mins from main road to Motueka and 35-40 mins from Kaiteriteri to get boats to Abel Tasman. Lovely, friendly family and excellent meals eaten with the family. Accommodation separate from main house. Really enjoyed our stay here.

Stayed: February 2014

A luxury lodge in a beautiful setting, with incredibly friendly and welcoming hosts and their family (including two fabulous dogs). Home grown and cooked food for both dinner and breakfast; a spacious, modern, clean and comfortable accommodation. Splendid and the best night of our honeymoon. Thank you!

Room Tip: The garden room is a beautiful quiet private space

Jeannie and I stayed in the Garden Room. What a fine experience:
- Lisa and Graeme are super friendly and helpful
- The Garden Room is off on its own, ground floor, super quiet, well equipped, with plenty of space
- Its view over the lawn, lake, ducks, geese, majestic hills is an absolute delight
- Breakfasts and dinners are yummy.
- For interacting with three delightful kids, go in January
- Their family friend gave us super advise on trout fishing in the adjacent Motueka River
- The lodge is a spacious, log-constructed, with great views and a super library
- There is fast internet with a comfortable set-up in the lodge for working on a rainy day

Enjoy,

WE had the best time ever -- having kids is always a challenge ... great price ...great location. Our biggest mistake was that we didn't have enough time -- we spent only one night and could have stayed a week!

Fantastic Stay, Thank you to Lisa, Graeme, and Family,
Truly our favourite place on our busy travel itinerary, from the minute we arrived we were warmly welcomed by the family and made to feel at home. And what a wonderful home, location and stunning views. We stayed 3 nights which flew by and not long enough. At the lodge the children we able to collect the eggs for breakfast, feed the animals and learn a lot of the local knowledge from our hosts. Cooked breakfast every morning by Lisa and Graeme was a perfect start to each day ( loved the rhubarb and apple too. ). A great place to explore the outdoors and Abel Tasman, from forest walks to mountain climbs, fishing, and the beach to mention a few. When leaving it was very sad to have to pack up and say our goodbyes to a perfect stay and wonderful family. We would definitely recommend a stay at Lakeside Lodge Motueka and would love to go back again for longer next time.Lisa and Graeme thank you once again for a memory that will last for us and our kids for a very long time. C.D.D.W
