The Lodge has a Morrison family history dating back to 1873 when Edward Morrison

purchased the property and had the largest pip fruit orchard in the Sourthern herisphere.

Edward is famous for propergating the Morrison Seedless grapefruit on the property. In the early 1900's

the fire blight desease was suspected on the property and the whole orchard was distroyed,

even though Edward denied this and this has been proven as he kept several pear trees

which still fruit abundantly today. The property was turned into a dairy farm and has come through the generations.

Ian the present owner is the forth generation of the Morrison family and purchased the farm in 1971. Milked cows for

two years but as this was uneconomic changed to dry stock. In 1973 he and his wife Jyl began wood carving with

swamp Kauri and from there established the Redbluff Gallery which became a very successful business, subsidising

the farm income. The Lodge was their home for 43 years but in March 2015 they started to have built a new home

for which they made their own bricks. So turning their old home into a Lodge seemed to be the right thing to do and

they opened this in January 2016. The encouraging comments of all who have stayed has proved to them that this has

been the right decision and they look forward to meeting and hosting people from all walks of life.

Special conditions: Smoking allowed outside only No spicy foods such as curries to be prepared in the kitchen. Make sure you make yourselves at home and have a wonderful time.
