New Zealand destinations
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.
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.
The Lodge offers four luxuriously-appointed en-suite guestrooms and two private suites, each with their own French doors opening 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, equipped with its own garden furniture for that leisurely afternoon tea, complete with home-baking, or a glass of fine Central Otago wine as the sun sets behind the Southern Alps.
Inspired by the lime trees which punctuate the Lodge's grounds, guests will find quality 'lime-infused' Linden Leaves toiletries in every room (Linden is the Old English word for a lime tree) and vodka lime gimlets – made with New Zealand's very own Broken Shed Vodka - presented for evening aperitifs in summer months.
Guests also have exclusive use of the stylish lounge and dining area, with its impressive open log schist fireplace. Complimentary digital TV, CD, DVD and book libraries, wifi, tea and coffee, fresh fruit, home-baking and sparkling mineral water are all on hand for guests to enjoy throughout their stay.
An on-site helipad provides direct access to the region's spectacular ski fields, glaciers and sounds, while a pétanque court, croquet lawn, pitch-and-putt golf course, swimming pool and spa pool make it hard to do anything other than relax and enjoy.
A wide range of attractions and adventure sports are all within easy reach of Wanaka. Take a scenic cruise on the Lake, sample locally made wines, or fish at one of the easily accessible lakeside spots. Alternatively, venture into the hills and mountains surrounding Wanaka. Mountain biking, hiking and climbing are all available in this area. Wanaka is also one of New Zealand's top ski destinations, with three ski and snowboarding areas nearby.
Lime Tree Lodge is renowned for its attentive service with hosts, Pauline & John, providing special touches to make your stay in this great region of New Zealand relaxed and memorable.
Enjoy their hospitality in front of the roaring fire on a winter's day or soak up the warm Central Otago sun by the pool in summer months.
