Pinedale Lodge and Apartment is right in the heart of Methven. Two separate dwellings on the same property catering for different sized groups who want to self-cater. We were the first accommodation provider that opened in Methven and still going strong. We welcome children and try to be environmentally friendly. We have plenty of off-street and on-street parking and a bicycle for you to borrow. If you feel like hanging out we have games, films, books and a beautiful garden. We provide everything you will need for a baby/toddler: cot, bath, toys, books, high chair.

We now have free wifi.

The Pinedale Apartment is a modern, warm and sunny 2 bedroom, family friendly home away from home with it’s own fully fenced garden. Sleeps up to 4 plus space for 1 infant in a portacot.

The Lodge is a gorgeous classic kiwi country villa, originally on a farm. Perfect for groups of families, friends, social clubs, birthday parties, anniversary get-togethers, wedding celebrations, team building or just because there is now one large holiday home in Methven that can fit you and your mates! Enjoy the two spacious living areas, long dining tables, relax in the sunken conversation pit by the open fire, watching Freeview TV or one of the many films, read or play a game of pool. With our tiered room rate, it can cater for different sized groups of up to 24 people.

  • Cozy and comfortable little cottage

    Cozy and comfortable little cottage. Close to town. Great collection of books and DVDs. Well-supplied kitchen. Wish the weather was better (rained the majority of our stay) so we missed out on the views.
