Luxe Family Retreat

Immerse yourself in our tranquil garden setting with towering birch and beech trees offering leafy shade and privacy to our three cedar-clad, luxury guest rooms. Each one shares an air of warmth, understated sophistication and total comfort.

The Admiral’s Room
The Admiral’s Room offers a soothing cedar hot tub to soak in after a long day’s hiking, trout fishing, or sightseeing. Gaze at the stars, sip a glass of wine, and completely unwind. This room also has Netflix, cable TV, DVD player,  tea and coffee-making facilities, and a minibar stocked with fine New Zealand wines, artisanal sparkling water, and a micro-brewery beer selection.

The Major’s Room
Standing apart from the main Lodge, the Major’s Room offers privacy and peacefulness within a lovely garden setting. Relax and enjoy the comfort of this beautifully appointed room featuring a bathroom with its own  cedar hot tub nestled within a private  garden, tea, and coffee-making facilities.

The Duchess’s Room
Cozy, welcoming, and relaxing, the Duchess Room enjoys a superb vista of the garden areas with both the room and bathroom looking out onto a private garden setting. This room enjoys the morning sunshine and features tea and coffee-making facilities.
