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."
As most of our guests stay for at least 3 nights we would like to make this option more attractive.
Queenstown Country Lodge recently gained the 2014 Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence. This reinforces the Lodge’s No 1 ranking (out of 44) 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.
`Spring is here but.......
Today (16th September) our first lamb was born...well twin lambs in fact. With daffodils out, blossom on the trees and lambs in the paddock, spring has arrived. However on the mountains there is fresh snow and the forcast is for more so the skiers will love this time but farmers will be a little wary. We have a Lodge pet lamb called Milly who was abandoned by her mother. A local farmer knows we love pet lambs for our guests to feed so gave it to us. She has recovered well and is now healthy and running all over the place. We will put photos of the lambs on our Facebook page, so if interested have a look.
We are stocking up the wine cellar for the summer season ahead of very good bookings. There is a real positive feeling about this 2014-15 summer in terms of overseas visitors and this is certainly reflected in the inquiries we are getting.
Well thats it from us. Do contact us if we can help you in any way.
