Red Deer Lodge, St Arnaud

 Great place. Very authentic. I had my 30th birthday here and it had all the facilities we needed to cook, play games, dance, chill out in front of the fire, and eventually rest our tired heads in the bunk rooms. It is close to the lake, giving easy access to walks. I would recommend this place for any large group. 

Nelson College Matakitaki Lodge

 Stunning location and super accommodating hosts with allowing our horses to stay on the property. Amazing kitchen for large groups to use well set up for a comfortable stay.
