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.

    A classic Kiwi bach experience in a house your great grandparents might have lived in. Their furniture and wall coverings are still there. Beds and line are great and the property is kept very clean. There is a short walk to a tree enclosed river front and from the kitchen and back garden there is a great view of the Clutha. If you want simple and genuine and the Clutha this is a super place for a few nights. The pub nearby does decent food and a fine line in local colour.

    A relaxing old style farm house (railway station house), comfy beds, nice linen, well equipped for family cooking. A few bugs for city boys ; ) Boys (13, 16) took a dip in the swimming hole. Peaceful spot right by the river. Easy location to go to Lawrence for icecreams, millenium track and through to Clyde to see friends. Thank you!

    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.
