Bed And Breakfast Wanaka Homestead
Wanaka Homestead offers a choice of either luxury
lodge or cottage accommodation in Wanaka, New
Zealand. Just 200m from the shores of Lake Wanaka,
the purpose-built homestead lodge provides informal
luxury in a friendly five bedroom boutique bed and
breakfast, which during winter has a "ski lodge"
feel. Alternatively, our charming new cottages are
family friendly and offer self-contained and
serviced "apartment style" Wanaka accommodation with
real warmth and character. Facilities, such as the
under-the-stars hot tub, broadband Internet access
and laundry, are all-inclusive.
The accommodation Wanaka's most environmentally friendly, comprises three award-winning stone and timber buildings and makes a homely alternative to hotels, motels, and holiday houses. The lodge and cottages also serve as a romantic Wanaka vacation retreat, offering just the type of intimate accommodation Wanaka is renowned for.

Within metres of the accommodation Wanaka Station Park dominates the landscape. Once home to Wanaka's original Homestead (New Zealand term for "farmhouse"), the lawns and towering redwoods beckon you down to the glistening lake, and seemingly endless walking tracks begin.
The lodge offers informal sophistication in five spacious super-king or twin bedrooms. Each guest bedroom has ensuite facilities, fine linen, telephone, writing desk and other special touches designed to make you feel at home. The point of difference for the "master" bedroom is a huge California king bed and double showers and basins. Awaken to coffee aromas and a delicious continental and/or cooked breakfast prepared by your friendly hosts. The comfortable guest lounge is yours to enjoy and by evening is the ideal place to sample a local wine or beer by the roaring log fire of this friendly little Wanaka lodge.
