Situated on the outskirts of Wanaka township towards the Cardrona Valley, Black Barrel Lodge is an amazing self-contained ‘lodge style’ holiday home that sleeps up to 12 people. Whether skiing in the winter, or enjoying all that Central Otago has to offer in the summer, Black Barrel Lodge has been designed with the comfort of large groups in mind.

Quality furnishing and comfortable beds ensure you will sleep well here. A king-sized master bedroom, 3 doubles and a bunk room cater for all sized groups. Beds have quality linen and are made up before your arrival.

With three showers and four toilets, large groups do not have to wait to use the bathroom, and with gas hot water everyone can enjoy a shower at the end of the day.

Modern open-plan kitchen living and dining, offer all the modern conveniences and amenities you would expect in your own home. A secluded second living room is perfect as a cosy spot to read a book, or for the kids to have their own space. A large TV in each living room has Sky and Freeview, as well as separate DVD players. In-wall entertainment system allows music to be played inside or outside and is great for that movie or big game on the big screen.

Large dining table for formal meals of up to 14 people, and a large breakfast bar for those more casual meals. An outdoor fireplace and gas barbeque is great for outdoor meals in summer or an apres ski session in the winter.

Heated with two fireplaces, and underfloor heating in all bathrooms and main living areas, and panel mounted heaters in all the bedrooms, means you will always be comfortable and cosy in this house.

Across the road from Lone Star cafe, Rubys bar and cinema, and only a short walk or taxi ride into town, there are plenty of nightlife options available.

As an affordable and luxurious holiday experience, you cannot go past Black Barrel Lodge for spacious settings with all the comfort and functionality you could ask for in a holiday lodge

  • Our stay here was amazing

    Our stay here was amazing. The house easily had enough room for our two families. It was warm and modern and had everything we needed. Kids loved having their own lounge. Hope to stay again next year!
