Limetree Lodge, Wanaka, New Zealand
Set on a ten-acre estate just outside Lake Wanaka, Lime Tree Lodge offers luxury boutique accommodation in a relaxed, country setting, with stunning 360 degree, uninterrupted mountain views. An avenue of 'tilea cordata' lime trees lend the Lodge its unique name and character. The rustic Central Otago exterior, featuring local schist stone, opens up into a modern and stylish interior, with no expense spared on making the surroundings comfortable for guests. The Lodge offers four luxuriously-appointed en-suite guestrooms and two private suites, each with their own French doors that open out to an expansive veranda and gardens with magnificent views of the Southern Alps. Fresh flowers, bathrobes and slippers, heated floors and king-size beds clad in crisp cotton and designer linens, make each room a restful haven, with spectacular alpine views and garden access from every room. An on-site helipad provides direct access to the region's spectacular ski fields, glaciers and sounds, while a petanque court, croquet lawn, pitch-and-putt golf course, swimming pool and spa pool provide plenty of opportunity for on-site relaxation.
New owners John and Pauline Trotter previously owned a high country station in South Canterbury, and are both warm and welcoming Kiwi hosts with a rich farming heritage and a genuine passion for New Zealand. Their focus is on providing authentic Southern hospitality and outdoor adventures, delivered in style and comfort.
Facilities: LimeTree Lodge comprises two luxury suites and four elegant guestrooms, each with their own ensuite. Inspired by the lime trees which punctuate the Lodge’s grounds, guests will find quality Linden Leaves toiletries in every room (Linden is the Old English word for a lime tree) and Vodka lime gimlets presented for evening aperitifs in the Lodge's guest lounge. Guests of Limetree Lodge are spoilt for choice when it comes to relaxation. A five hole pitch-and-putt golf course, croquet lawn, swimming pool and spa pool provide plenty of on site activity, while the Lodge's helipad provides direct access to the region's spectacular ski fields, glaciers and sounds. Walk out of the Lodge and be whisked away by Wanaka Helicopters on an awe-inspiring flight to Mt Aspiring National Park, Mt Cook or Milford Sound - or go heli-skiing off-piste. For the less adventurous, explore the gorgeous local countryside on one of our mountain bikes.
