Te Waihora Lodge is a lovely farmstead accomodation, there is Toby the friendly and ever hungry KuneKune Pig, the Sheep and the Turkeys all residing on 20 arce's of Lakeside Beauty. Leeston town is only 6km away with local Pubs, Cafes, Restaurants and Markets to fulfil the needs.

Picturesque Lake Ellesmere is across the road, with 50,000 birds at last count making it a bird watchers haven.

Sitting in the Spa Pool watching the clear night sky and the thousands of Stars is always my highlight.

The space
Exposed Macrocarpa Beams, Cedar Shingles, Wrap around terrace, The Lodge is a very classic style farmhouse. Add to that the massive living area, 8 seater dinning table. Fire crackling away and some wonderful meals served from the full kitchen, happy memories are always made.

Outside is a lovely maintained garden with hidden gems everywhere. A short walk will find a huge 16ft Trampoline. The hidden reading corner to pass the hot summer days.

Closer to the Lodge you have a wonderful outdoor entertaining area, the experts get to design their own Pizza and throw it in the classic wood fired pizza oven. Sit around the table, drinking wine and solving problems.

The Spa Pool gets constant attention, sitting back and enjoying the night sky or having a splash festival with the kids. It all works to create the relaxing holiday you desire.

The Games Room has the gear to pass the evening away. The huge slate Pool Table, the Dartboard, A space easily big enough to host the crowd.

For those that want to relax while not skipping the exercise, there is a small and adequate Gym set up. Between the Swiss Balls, Weighted Ropes, the Rowing Machine, the Bike Machine, Weights and even a Boxing Bag. Enough to give anyone a decent workout.

Activities around the area are numerous. We have a couple of Kayaks to tour the bird sanctuary or simply cruise the lake, the walking tracks, golf courses, bike trails, hunting, stone beaches, local shops, horse riding, swimming holes... the list goes on. Just 1 hour from Mt Hutt in summer, 1hr 20 in winter.

Guest access
The guests have full access of house and surrounding gardens. Children are the responsibility of Parents or Guardians. This is a farm with livestock. Please close all gates behind you. Do not leave children alone in the paddocks. The house has the odd Turkey come and visit but no animal has access to the Lodge or gardens.

Other things to note
There is a seperate shower in the bathroom.
