Lakestone Lodge is the ideal location to sit back in comfort and admire what you have achieved as the views from all of the bedrooms are straight back over Lake Pukaki to Mount Cook. Located 13km from Twizel, with the Alps 2 Ocean Cycle Trail running right past the front door it features some of the most spectacular scenery in the country.
The off-grid eco lodge has been designed to maximise the panoramic views and harness the power of the sun. Every room and bathroom share stunning views northward over Lake Pukaki to the Southern Alps. On calm days New Zealand’s highest mountain, Aoraki Mt Cook, can be seen reflected in the turquoise glacial waters of the lake. In contrast, mountain storms, rolling in over the alps, can be viewed from the comfort and warmth of this luxurious lodge.
In the evenings, after watching the sun setting over the mountains, guests can enjoy some of the clearest night skies in the world as Lakestone Lodge is located in the heart of the Aoraki Mackenzie International Dark Sky Reserve. Cyclists can soothe tired muscles with a sports massage in the therapy room.
Lakestone Lodge is situated in the Mackenzie Country which has been shaped and is influenced by extreme forces of nature and is surrounded by a variety of natural environments. These include lakes and rivers for fishing and swimming; high country for hunting and hiking; mountains for climbing and skiing; and tracks for walking and cycling.
This Lodge, centrally located, is an ideal base for exploring these areas as well as for relaxing and making the most of unlimited photographic opportunities.
Your hosts Anna & Mike are keen cyclists, and have travelled all around the world. We look forward to welcoming you to Lakestone Lodge!
