    Amazing Arcadia!

    Arcadia Lodge is a very special place. The hosts, Greg and Peter, have lovingly crafted a nest of tranquility overlooking the water, on the edge of Russell. From the accommodation to the meals, to the caring from G and P, it was an idyllic stay.

    Arcadia Lodge is a beautiful old historical home which has been upgraded to luxury standard with decor and furnishings that reflect the history of the time. All this surrounded by a beautiful garden. Guests can not fail to relax due to the outstanding hospitality of the hosts,the attention to detail and the special touches that make guests feel special. As well as this the breakfast offerings are second to none served on the deck when possible overlooking Matauwhi bay.The location is excellent. A few minutes to Russell township by car or an easy ten minute walk. Restaurants,activities,shops,vineyards and beaches are all easily accessible if you can tear yourself away from the ambience of the lodge. A world class accomodation without the airfare!
