Golf in spectacular Queenstown







Welcome to Queenstown Country Lodge

Amanda and I welcome you to our website.

Thanks for making that click and we hope you like what you find here.

We offer you friendly personalized luxury lodge accommodation on a lifestyle country farm close to Queenstown.


Queenstown Country Lodge is our dream. After working for Real Journeys, Managing Wilderness Lodge Arthur's Pass and skippering/hosting a boat for an American couple in the Mediterranean, Bahamas and USA, we decided to create our own country lodge near Queenstown, New Zealand, offering luxury bed and breakfast accommodation in a beautiful rural setting surrounded by spectacular mountains.

Located in New Zealand’s Southern Lakes region, our luxury lodge is close to the award winning vineyards, activities and attractions of the Southern Lakes, Fiordland and Central Otago areas and just far enough from Queenstown to ensure you enjoy the peace and tranquility of the New Zealand country side.


Queenstown Country Lodge is set on 5 hectares (11 acres) of large secluded gardens and farmland and surrounded by mountains. We have combined the warmth and welcoming atmosphere of a country Inn with the comfort and class of luxury boutique accommodation. 


Whether you are relaxing in the guest lounge by the log fire after a day skiing, rejuvenating in the garden spa pool after a walk in the mountains, sharing a glass of Central Otago wine before a wonderful meal or later on in the eveing being guided across the spectacular and fascinating southern sky by John, Queenstown Country lodge will meet your every needs.


Make the Lodge home while you explore Queenstown, one of the truly wonderful holiday destinations in the world. The mountains and lakes around Queenstown are paradise to skiers, trekkers, walkers, mountain bikers, photographers and fishermen from all over the world.


"We would love the opportunity to host you at Queenstown Country Lodge."
Amanda and John



Special Offer

As most of our guests stay for at least 3 nights we would like to make this option more attractive.
So a 3 night stay will now cost a couple $1050, a saving of $225


Autumn is here and winter is not too far away.

The lovely autumn colours of our deciduous trees remind us that the long warm summer days are gone and our minds now start to turn to cosey times in front of the fire with a glass of Pinot and some good company.

60 of our lambs are about to "leave" the farm although our named pets get to stay so visitors  will still meet and feed Mac, Lucy and the others. The Lodge vegetable garden and  orchard has supplied us so well over the summer and the suplus has been saved for the colder winter months. The winter wood is cut and a good selection of local Central Otago Pinots have been cellared so we are ready for whatever the winter brings. The new development up on the Remnarkables Ski field will certainly help attract more winter visitors to Queenstown and extra flights from Australia suggest the area is in for a bumper ski season.

We are thrilled with the number of forward bookings we have already for next summer, so if you are thinking of coming to stay, do check out availability by clicking on the Availability  tab on this page. Being Number 1 on Trip Advisor for B&B/Hosted/Inns in the greater Queenstown area has certaily helped us a lot in terms of booking numbers. Do check out what guests have been saying about the Lodge by clicking on the Trip Advisor tab on this page.

Finally a big thank you to all those guests who stayed with us this past summer. Meeting wonderful people like yourselves is why we enjoy running Queenstown Country Lodge. Showing you around our lifestyle farm, feeding the pet sheep, talking about sport, natural history, astronomy and the local area over a glass of pinot makes our day as well.

Well thats it from us. Do contact us if we can help you in any way.

Warmest regards
John and Amanda.
