Whether you're planning a wedding, conference, team-building exercise, or just a gathering of friends and family, you're about to discover a very special place.

Tucked into the hills, within walking distance of the beautiful village of Akaroa, the Lodge is your balcony seat for one of the best views in New Zealand, looking straight across the world-famous harbour below. Set amid the green lawns and mature trees, and offering absolute peace and privacy, Mt Vernon Lodge is an oasis of calm in an increasingly-hurried world. It's the perfect place to escape – yet it's located only an hour's drive (or short helicopter flight) from Christchurch International Airport.

Mt Vernon Lodge offers a range of characterful accommodation for up to 50 guests, as well as a fully-equipped function and conference room which caters for up to 100. From the roaring log-fire of the Lodge's communal lounge to the romantic seclusion of our cottages for two, we have the right space for every occasion. We are happy to organise catering by top local chefs, or guests may prefer to make use of the various self-catering facilities on-site, including a full commercial kitchen. Like to know more? Just click on ‘Facilities' above, and we'll show you around.

Of course, as the sun goes down over Akaroa Harbour, you may find that the best activity of all is to relax… and enjoy the view.

  • We were struggling to find a accommodation in Akaroa on the long weekend and we were ended up booking Mt Vernon Lodge as that was the only option which was available at that time.. My self and bunch of my friends went there and stayed one night. It was an awesome experience and we loved the environment. It was quite and so in to the nature and it was well maintained. We stayed one night there and we were off to skyline walking track next day as it was so closed to the lodge. We wanted to stay another day but unfortunately it was not available. But we are hoping to visit this amazing lodge again. 5

  • We were thrilled with the Chalet, happy to get a one night stay over Easter. Very accommodating proprietors especially when it has been an exceeding challenging weekend weatherwise in the area. Loved the tranquility and altitude of this Chalet, higher up the complex, very peaceful. Great amenities. 5
