Additional Location Information

Buchanan Lodge is what most people dream of when they think of "getting away from it all". It is in a stunning location, surrounded on all sides by majestical scenery, without another house in sight. Although it feels a million miles from civilisation, it is in fact only 20 minutes outside Wanaka town, so easy to access shops, wineries etc. Treble Cone ski field is only a few kms away - so you can be the first on the slopes to catch the powder in the morning, and an easy hop home to a roaring log fire at the end of the day. In summer, you have your own private beaches at the end of the lawn. Helicopters can be arranged to pick you up from the lawn and take you on a scenic flight to Mt Aspiring or Milford Sound or heli-skiing in winter. There is ample parking at the lodge.
