Situated approx. one hour from Kaikoura, one hour from Hanmer Springs and one hour from the Waipara wine region it's a great base to explore the area from. De Kikkervijver is an authentic log cabin with stunning views of Mt Lyford and over the Seaward Kaikouras. Nestled in natural surroundings of manuka and grasses, the cabin overlooks a large frog pond (De Kikker Vijver) that reflects the beauty of the surrounding landscape. The Lodge is 2000 feet above sea level and enjoys pure mountain water and crisp air.

De KikkerVijver has been designed to accommodate 10 people in the log cabin. There are 10 beds in the lodge itself and 2 extra in the stargazer. The large lounge / dining area with it high ceiling and huge candelabra gives this log chalet a unique character. Comfy sofas are gathered in front of the logfire to relax after a day of outdoor play. The dining table is made of a big slab of macrocarpa and sits 10 people nicely; a neat group experience. The kitchen is fully equipped and geared up for a big group.

The downstairs bathroom has a clawfoot bath with antique shower above, a basin and toilet. Separate to this is an extra shower room. The laundry offers the processing of the dirty gear after a day in the outdoors. Drying can be done on the outdoor lines. Upstairs is an extra toilet. The mezzanine has a big TV, great to entertain the kids with some favourite dvd's while you enjoy the quiet downstairs.

The Stargazer is a unique night time 'sleeping under the stars' experience! It is set in a very secluded part of the section. The stargazer is a small building where you can lay back and enjoy a night under the stars. Great for kids or for a couple. Enjoy the feeling of being out under the stars in the stargazer (note: no power/heating in stargazer so not suitable for winter).

Your group will have exclusive use of the lodge during your stay.

    We really enjoyed our stay at Mt Lyford - walks, some snow, and spas at the Lodge down the road. Appreciated good wood supply, as we needed it. Wee challenge with baby in log cabin - sound does travel, but really, a great place!
