Queenstown Winter

Summer is well and truly over and the snow is settling on the mountains, providing beautiful views! Just when you thought Queenstown couldn’t get any prettier, especially after Autumn, it snows and it changes to different shades of beauty!

This winter the Queenstown Country Lodge is open for the first time! We have been beavering away winterising the menu, changing up using cardrona merino lamb shanks and shoulders. We might even sneak a cheeky few curries in!Β Mulled wine and some winter desserts are also on offer!

We have many packages on offer, from couples romantic winter getaways to whole of lodge family / friends holidays which could include meals on some nights, then transport to and from dinner in Queenstown or Arrowtown for the adults and while you’re enjoying that, we will feed and look after the children!

All you need to do is get hold of us and work out what works best for you for your holiday! We offer more flexibility than others!

We also have a partnership with SnoPro who will supply and fit ski and board equipment after you arrive at the Lodge, in the warmth and comfort of the lodge.

No doubt she'll be a wonderful happy mother. We have 24 sheep, incl 7 new lambs and they are all very special.

Well done Barry. We have a doe and buck born and we get home tomorrow so can relieve the midwife daughter MichelleπŸ‘
