Furneaux Lodge, Marlborough Sounds, New Zealand
Furneaux Lodge is steeped in history, and is set in stunning native bush against the magnificent backdrop of Mount Furneaux. Overlooking Endeavour Inlet, the lodge enjoys a wonderfully tranquil setting, and is an ideal base both for those looking for a quiet retreat and those hoping to explore the beauty of the Queen Charlotte Track. Accommodation is in stylish waterfront suites or self-contained chalets, and the legendary bar and restaurant ensure that you have a good choice of dining options. No roads lead to the lodge, so transfers are always by boat, but the result is a sublimely peaceful stay in this beautiful corner of New Zealand.
