A Stunning location

Just 20-minutes away from Wellington, The Lodge is a world away. Nestled amongst native bush and with outstanding views of the Pauatahanui Inlet, The Lodge is a marvelous example of a historic country lodge retreat – designed to meet your special occasion needs.

Our extensive beverage selection means that you can enjoy spectacular summertime sunsets over the Inlet with your favourite drink in hand. Or, during the cooler months sip on mulled wine beside our open fires.

We are also known for our delicious cuisine and meticulous attention to detail. As our guests, you and your group literally don’t have to worry about a thing.

It’s our privilege to welcome you to The Lodge and set the scene for your special event.
