Lazy River Lodge is our holiday bach, built about 85 years ago as a railways house. Our bach has character, charm and some quirks. We’ve enjoyed many family holidays here over the years.

We invite you to come and share our special family place....relax and unwind, enjoy the roses in the garden, listen to the bellbirds in the trees, take your afternoon tea (or a picnic dinner) down to the banks of the Clutha river at the back of our section - or if it's hot enough go for a dip! Explore the stunning river scenery upstream by bike or on foot - you'll find plenty of places for a picnic and a swim. Relax in front of the open fire in the lounge or stoke up the wood range in the kitchen. There is a TV but this will only play DVD's.

Special conditions: Minimum night stay may apply over public holidays eg; Easter. Continental Breakfast Tray available on request $12 per person. Cleaning option available on request.

  • Property was very cold with the sun not gettiing up till after...

    Property was very cold with the sun not gettiing up till after ten. Would not reccommend it for a winter break as obvious had not be occupied for a while . Does have a fire in lounge and wood burner in kitchen which I did not use as I was constanly feeding the fire in lounge just to get one room warm. Kitchen facilites adequate. Consider it expensive @$115 compared to other properties. See toko mouth listings.

  • We loved staying in this country house

    We loved staying in this country house. Take it as it is: a genuine and charming, unassuming and low-frills country retreat, in a beautiful setting. Better than some high-priced shiny new flash and characterless places we've been. The kids loved the local pool down the road, talking to the horses, meeting hedegehogs and hawks in the garden, and of course, watching the river roll by.
