Description

The Wild Earth Barn is a cosy chalet in a magnificent mountain setting, with uninterrupted views of the Wilkin Valley, Mt Aeolus glacier and the Mt Aspiring National Park. It's a particularly restful place to stay. The Barn is a self contained dwelling as part of our lodge. Wild Earth Lodge is a rammed earth home where we live and offer guests a unique wilderness experience. The property sits between two high country sheep stations in the Wilkin Valley, Makarora.

Makarora is a small township with a cafe, authentic local pub and DOC centre.

The Barn has easy access to the rivers and is 5 minutes from the boat ramp at the head of Lake Wanaka. The drive to Haast takes 1 hour and we are 40 minutes from Wanaka township.

The fishing is great here and the rivers are open for reel or fly fishing between November and April. A heli guided fishing trip is an incredible day!

The Mt Aspiring National Park has many beautiful walks and great hut facilities. Day walks to 4 day overnight tramps are all on our doorstep.

In winter Cardrona and Treble Cone Ski fields are 70 minute drive from our gate to the car parks.

We are happy to help you plan any activities or adventures such as jet boating, heli sightseeing, guided fishing or hunting, even a ride in a classic Shelby Cobra!

There are two other rooms available in the lodge (1 King Bed, 1 Queen Bed) each with a bathroom if you require more room.

  • Amazing stay in the barn, exactly what my girlfriend and myself where...

    Amazing stay in the barn, exactly what my girlfriend and myself where looking for. Quiet, peaceful and calm. Such a beautiful location looking over the Wilkin Valley. The wood burner gave the barn such a warm and cozy feeling especially as the weather wasn’t on our side. The Eric Clapton CD also helped to set the mood. Thanks a million Pete and Janine. Will definately be back.

Lots of nice touches to be found In the kitchen and everything we needed including Pete's offer to light our wood burner fire. Comfortable beds and loads of hot water. A perfect overnight stop on the way north from Wanaka.
