Birthdays and Celebrations at The Lodge

The Lodge welcomes all types of events from intimate dinners to ballroom style cocktail evenings, weddings, birthday parties, special anniversaries and family events.

A venue able to offer a variety of options for your special occasion, function or celebration.

Located only 20 minutes from Wellington in the desirable Pauhatanui valley, The Lodge lends itself to tradition or glamour, tranquillity or a buzz, but most importantly provides a fantastic backdrop to put ‘special’ into any event.  A venue to suit all tastes and all events – we like to make it your choice!

The unique layout of our venue and designed menu options provide great opportunities to tailor your event to perfection. We have separate dining rooms and lounges that are ideal for business meetings or private dining, should it be for an intimate party or a larger group of 240!

There are great opportunities for alfresco dining, cocktails on the terrace decks surrounding the Lodge and enjoy the commanding views of the inlet and native bush.

The well-appointed and well-equipped venues are complimented by the historic and elegant country lodge setting.

We are happy to offer exclusive use of the Lodge on request for you and your guests and parking is no problem accommodating up to 120 cars safely tucked away from the lounges. Stay the night in tastefully refurbished accommodation *from Spring 2019.   The discreet accommodation commands spectacular views of the inlet, rolling hills or native bush. Enjoy our decks during summer or cosy open fires in winter months.
