Special Amenities

Stunning lakefront luxury accommodation right in the heart of the Southern Alps. Located on a working high country station farming deer, cattle and of course merino sheep. Extensive bifold windows along the lounge open onto the front deck, so without even stepping outside you are drawn into nature. A more private deck at the back offers guests the choice of a secluded spa pool or BBQ area. Three bedrooms with adjoining bathrooms allow for a variety of sleeping arrangements. The lodge boasts top of the line furnishings including a leather lounge suite, 42 inch television, Sky TV and internet. Kayaks are kept at the lodge, and mountain bike hire, fishing trips or horse riding expeditions can be arranged. Arrowsmith Lodge sleeps 10 with a selection of high quality bunk beds, linen and bedding provided. Why Bunks? Because the building was originally the shearers’ quarters, the sleeping areas are not huge. However clever design has resulted in bedrooms that are not only functional, but extremely comfortable. The beds are not your standard bunk beds, being wider than usual and featuring top quality mattresses, linen and bedding. You will be pleasantly surprised by how comfortable these beds are and the adjoining spacious, modern bathrooms feature high quality showers, basins, WCs, heated towel rails and heat lamps. Lake Heron is renowned for its secluded fishing spots. As the largest of the four lakes that make up the Ashburton Lakes, it’s also a remote and spectacular wildlife area. You may be lucky enough to spot a rare Southern Crested Grebe, one of New Zealand’s endangered birds, or some of the other native birdlife that flock to this area. If birdwatching isn’t a passion, kayaking the lake or walking through the spectacular tussock land will give you that wilderness experience. There are row boats, kayaks available for your use while staying at Arrowsmith Lodge.

Matthew Wallenstein
Absolutely stunning views. Great lodge and amazing hosts. We got stuck in the floods for 3 extra nights--they brought us food and beer and didn't even charge us for the extra nights! Highly recommend.

This place looks rustic but everything inside is top quality and is exceptional value for the money. The only reason it didn't get 5 stars was a mix up with a double booking when we turned up which meant we ended up having a bunch of strangers in the upstairs flat for a night but we were given a partial refund and profuse apologies. Kyaking on the lake was an amazing experience, and we had friendly thar keeping us company when we were in the spa! The kitchen has everything you could possibly need, there are lots of games and books onsite and the view from the lounge window (which fills the entire front of the room and has sliding doors) is captivating. There is sky tv with sports and movie chanels but who needs it when you have the lake and mountains during the day and spectacular star gazing at night! Thanks Meren we will be back 😊
