Yet, Paihia, the hub of the bays activities is only a 5-minute drive away.

Share the enriching company of other guests.
And above all, come and unwind, and enjoy the panoramic views and natural beauty that epitomise the essence of the Bay of Islands.
The two-level, cedar-clad lodge overlooks the Veronica Channel and the regular ferry route between Paihia and the charming, historic town of Russell. Your luxury accommodation for two in the Sea View or Bush View Suite includes full breakfast each morning and a complimentary open bar.
The owners previously operated the Casuarina Restaurant and Country Inn in New South Wales, Australia, which won the American Express award for the ‘Best Restaurant in the Hunter Valley' for three years running. Dinner at Bay of Islands Lodge is highly recommended – using the freshest of Northland produce, locally purchased seafood and local grain fed beef and awarding winning cuts of lamb – dining with Peter and Glennis is a highlight of your New Zealand adventure.
