Liked to have stayed longer
We missed the turning to the lodge the first time as the sign isn’t prominent. But having found it up the drive past three houses you come across a hidden gem. The view across the grounds is lovely, the room we were in was spacious, clean and comfortable. It’s location is handy for Kerikeri only 5 mins drive away. In short, we could have stayed longer.

Fabulous lodge in a country setting
We had a fantastic stay at the lodge. We turned up and we had been upgraded to a king suite which was a lovely surprise. The owner was very welcoming, showed us around and gave us lots of information about the area. The lodge is set on 30 acres of beautiful countryside. There are 2 horses and 2 alpacas which adds to the surroundings. You can open up your room doors and sit on the deck looking at the gorgeous view. The common living area has a fireplace which is always stoked, books and dvds are available also. I recommend this place as a quiet getaway. a place to relax and unwind. It is a 5min drive to the town so bring your car or hire one.
