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



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.

Summer is here

Well, with the snow disappearing from the Remarkables and Coronet ski fields, our 60 lambs growing by the day and the gardens being awash with colour, winter is well and truely gone.

Our 700 peony roses are just coming out and will be so beautiful soon. Check out the photos on our Facebook page.

Our complimentary wine tasting each evening is a lovely way to get to know our guests, with the local Central Otago Pinots and the new release Sauvignon Blancs being very popular.

One of the pleasures of hosting guests is helping them plan their daily adventure. Depending on the wather and their interests, there is just so much to do around the Queenstown area. Walks, driving to Glenorchy, visiting the sleepy historic goldmining town Arrowtown, playing golf, wining and dining and taking a stroll  or biking (we have bikes you can borrow) around nearby Lakes Hayes are popular activities with our guests.

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

Warmest regards
John and Amanda.
