Guest Comments

Just beautiful, a great place for a group to go and relax. Taupo

Absolutely fantastic place for 3 couples. The kitchen and bar was superb and well-stocked. The decor was gorgeous and the view sitting by the outside fire to die for! We look forward to visiting again in the summer to use the pool! Auckland

A stunning place to stay and a fabulous house for a special family weekend. Highly recommended. Wellington

Another fabulous weekend with friends at Lodge 4. Everything perfect. Will continue to visit annually. Have told so many people about this special place since we visited last year. We introduced another couple this time who are already looking at a date to revisit. Thank you. Please don't change anything! We will be back. Wellington
