Hosting guests, ensuring their comfort & needs are met & making the stay a good one gives me enormous pleasure. My working career was spent working in hotels & restaurants in a number of countries around the globe, & the pleasure it gave me is still there. This private, protected rainforest that we are continuously hunting & trapping to keep predators under control is another great pleasure of mine. For over 25 years we have been working to conserve this podocarp forest & the absolute pleasure of waking up to that dawn chorus as the sun pierces the hill of trees, shows its working! Much of the breakfast we leave for you to eat at your leisure is produced from our own home-grown spray free produce or our own chooks. We have dogs, sheep and chickens on the property.

A Beautiful Weekend
This Bach was amazing, it was a cold winter weekend with snow forecast, we arrived and the Manager had lit the fire for us, everything was very clean and immaculate, there were little things you notice, Towels, the bed, having a freshly made loaf of bread waiting for you to toast in the morning, the walks around the property, the fire starters for the next days fire and wood made available, Exceptional!! I wouldnt hestitate to return.
Short break away

A delightful Studio, so much attention given to the preparation of this studio and the provisions provided. Very private with rural views and walking tracks on the property. Perfection in Paradise. Thank you. From Kath and Dave.
Fantastic B&B with bush outlook and amazing host
A peaceful and very comfortable retreat overlooking bush with birdsong around. Michélé is a very welcoming host with great attention to detail - so many little touches of baking and provisions. There is everything you need for a self-contained stay. Bush tracks on the property offer walks to mountain views or peaceful picnic spot. Such a great spot to just relax, sit in the sun (in December) and enjoy! Thank you Michélé!
My favorite place!
Our visit was short but this was my faborite place out of about 8 different places we stayed throughout New Zealand. The rental is immaculate, beautiful and no detail or personal touch is forgotten! Amazing and pretty perfect! The property around the rental is beautiful as well.
I was also impressed with the story of 3 women who built the "tracks", kudos to you all!!
I cannot say enough good things!
I love Berrys Bush Lodge.
I love Berrys Bush Lodge. I'm beginning to feel that this may be my happy place! It's peaceful, tranquil and serene with lush bush all around. The owners are fantastic hosts and epitomize hospitality, bringing home made healthy snacks and bread each day and topping up fire wood. They go the extra mile. It is also apparent that they care very much for the environment and this definitely earns them mega points from me! :D
One of the best places I have ever stayed, you won't be disappointed!
