Fiordland Lodge, Te Anau & Manapouri, New Zealand
Set in 40 acres of land, high above the lake, Fiordland Lodge is perfect for relaxation or as a base for your Fiordland experience. Its impressive design features huge timbers and river stone, with a gallery-style lounge, which soars to a height of 36 feet around a vast open fireplace, and windows running the full height, providing expansive, uninterrupted views. Each of the ten luxury guest rooms in the lodge are spacious and light, and furnished with a super king bed and open onto a patio, providing marvellous views of Lake Te Anau.
Behind the main lodge the two log cabins are of a mezzanine design, incorporating recycled New Zealand timbers. Each has a queen sized bedroom, kitchen and bathroom downstairs, and either twin or triple single beds on the sleeping platform. The two cabins are full of character and ideal for families, but do not enjoy the views which the lodge commands.
Housed within the main lodge are the dining and bar areas, where lodge guests meet for breakfast, pre-dinner drinks around the fire, and a four course dinner - those staying in the cabins can dine at the lodge by prior arrangement, or alternatively the township of Te Anau is only a short drive away.
