Defining the notion of Tiaki (Maori for hospitality), Cabot Lodge offers guests seclusion and privacy while not forgoing luxury. An authentic style accommodation, the hosts at Cabot Lodge have managed to expertly combine authentic Kiwi hospitality with modern luxuries while showcasing the very best New Zealand has to offer. From helping out on the farm to assisting collecting herbs for dinner, staying at Cabot Lodge offers an insight into the Kiwi way of life while not compromising on luxury.

At just a 25-minute helicopter flight or two-hour drive from Queenstown, Cabot Lodge offers guests the same epic landscapes and mesmerizing scenery that one would receive in Queenstown or Wanaka, yet is positioned in over 2000 acres of private land – the ultimate Kiwi farm getaway.

With a focus on authenticity, Cabot Lodge only accommodates ten guests ensuring all guests receive a genuine New Zealand farm stay experience. Begin your day with a freshly prepared hearty farm-style breakfast on your private terrace overlooking the rolling farmlands before heading out and exploring the region at your leisure. With a wide variety of daily adventure activities included, guests can participate in a variety of lodge-based activities from kayaking to heli-hiking or can opt to explore the surrounding landscape from its wetlands to forest, mountains to lakes and even glaciers. Of course there is also the chance to get stuck in with farm life and help out with the daily farming tasks!

Overlooking the beautiful Lake Manapouri, the accommodation at Cabot Lodge is luxurious while homely and guests will enjoy the deep leather sofas and clawfoot bathtubs that offer sensational views of the landscape beyond. With a charming courtyard garden and outdoor fireplace guests can opt to dine inside or alternatively explore the restaurants in the neighboring town of Te Anau.

A boutique, authentic and ultimately genuine experience, a stay at Cabot Lodge defines Tiaki and for those looking for an authentic luxury experience this is the accommodation for you.
