Welcome to Queenstown Country Lodge

Sandie and Ian 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 was the dream of John and Amanda Cushen. They have now sold the Lodge and are heading off on another adventure. (Their new house is just along the road. )

We (Ian and Sandie) have just  been appointed managers and now their dream is our dream. We are thrilled to be your hosts at the Lodge which is near Queenstown, New Zealand, and offers 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 or sharing a glass of Central Otago wine before a wonderful meal, 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 have no hesitation in endorsing both Sandie and Ian as managers of Queenstown Country Lodge. Having met them on a number of occasions and hosted them as well, we know you will have a wonderful  time with them. With their experience in food and hospitality (They competed last year in My Kitchen  Rules…a New Zealand television cooking show.), a great sense of humour and boundless energy and enthusiasm, guests at Queenstown Country Lodge are assured of having their expectations exceeded."
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



Queenstown Country Lodge recently gained the 2015 Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence.

This  reinforces the Lodge's high ranking for B&Bs/Inns in the Queenstown region.

However, the BIG news for us is that we have gained the top 5 Star Grading for Boutique and Lodge after a Qualmark/Tourism New Zealand evaluation visit. We also achieved a Silver Enviro Award.

 We are both really thrilled with the outcome of this independent validation.
