A lovely location- quiet, secluded, and comfy with grand gardens and walks, near amazing bush (with bats!) and close enough to drive to the Hawkes Bay Markets. Clean, well appointed, with many amenities- we would gladly stay here agaiin.

Perfect country get away. Escape the chaos and relax amongst the beautiful trees. No cell reception to bother you but WiFi if you need it. Very warm and welcoming hosts. Able to completely relax here.

This is a real 'hidden' gem and we found ourselves wanting to stay longer. The house is an attractive and comfortable place to relax and explore the Hawke's Bay area. The rooms are spacious and well-equipped and the kitchen appears to be nearly new. We were welcomed in person and shown around and were left some provisions to get us settled in. Since the weather wasn't great, we were able to get cosy in front of the roaring log burner and our children (aged 11 and 15) enjoyed reading the books and playing card games. Jane and Larry were excellent hosts and went the extra mile to make sure we were comfortable. Thanks for a great stay!

This is a great place for some peace and quiet. It is a unique property that we enjoyed the most of anywhere we stayed in the three weeks we travelled in New Zealand. It's a little out of the way but it is certainly worth it.

This is a fantastic place with ample room and perfect for two couple and a couple of kids. Jane and her husband were gracious in welcoming us and kind to make sure the essentials were in the kitchen. All the amenities were ready for us. These days we "can't live" with out our internet connection but it was actually good not be be able to get telephone reception. The location is out of the way but a perfect spot for us to branch out for a day trip and return to the beauty of the country side. But if that is OK with you we would give this place a 11 out of 10.

What a brilliant place! The Lodge itself is spacious, bright and clean with everything you could need. The grounds were stunning. Beautiful walks through woodland with swing bridges over streams etc. It is a fair way out of the nearest town (as per the description) but that was exactly what we were after - peace and tranquility. The night sky was unbelievable. Jane and Larry were great hosts. Can't fault it.

I am married to Larry and we have 5 children and 6 grandchildren. Our lives are very full with our family and farming business which is mostly cropping and sheep and beef. We also have a dairy farm next door to where we live. We live in an established and extensive garden which we love to share with visitors.
