Private & north facing with beautiful views across the lawns, lily ponds and gardens to the river, The Lodge is light and spacious; perfect for a romantic retreat, or as a haven to escape and relax with friends. Windows & doors from every room open directly onto the lawns. Polished timber floors, wood burning fire, luxurious spa bath, cathedral ceilings & contemporary furnishings, a beautifully appointed kitchen and luxurious super king and king ensuite bedrooms ensure the Lodge is stylish, private and peaceful.

Peace, seclusion and tranquility abound - a beautiful and private river frontage; 5 acres of sub-tropicals to wander; 150 acres of organic farmland to explore, with marked walks to secluded swimming and picnic spots; our private boathouse & jetty, with free kayaks, canoes and fishing rods; and access to the deserted sandy beaches a short paddle downstream at Takou Bay. Try our relaxing hot tub by the river; a relaxing massage or spa treatment or a gourmet meal by prior arrangement.

The Lodge is centrally located to explore the wider Bay of Islands and Far North, yet hidden away from the hustle and bustle amid 150 acres of organic pasture, native bush and river front. Enjoy the flourishing birdlife; wander enchanted gardens and riverside walks; fish or swim in the river or take a kayak and paddle downstream to the deserted sandy beaches at Takou Bay; relax, refresh and romance in your own private indoor spa bath – or bask in the bliss of doing absolutely nothing.
