This historic Victorian building dating from 1901 was built in Blenheim as a convent and was relocated in 1994 to its present site in the renowned wine growing area of Rapaura. It sits amongst 16 acres of garden, with heated pool, tennis court, sunny courtyard and is surrounded by vineyards. Fully refurbished and upgraded in 2016 to feature 10 contemporary, luxury suites and restaurant, the lodge offers a 24 hour guest service.
Accommodation bookings are on a Dinner, Bed and Breakfast basis and guests have the opportunity to get involved with food including dinner at the Chef's Bench, taking a cooking demonstration or participate in a garden foraging excursion with the chefs.
