Gorgeous country lodge
Wonderful restful lodge across from Motueka River with mountains beyond. Chere Harris is a great host. She fed us great breakfasts and also made a salad and purchased mussels so that we could cook the rest. Couldn't recommend more highly!

Lovely Lodge
We spent 3 nights at the lodge and enjoyed every minute. The setting and gardens are gorgeous, and food was delicious. The proprietress was extremely accommodating and was able to arrange a fishing guide for my husband.
