“magical world class location”
We arrived to a very well presented and well equipped home. As it is located near the Wanaka lake there were hiking equipment and canoes to paddle on the lake. It was a million dollar view and the home was very comfortable, clean and spacious. An incredible secluded spot to unwind, relax and to take in the views. Our first trip to NZ and the few days spent here was the highlight of the holiday. We would return to NZ just to stay at the lodge again. We would recommend this home for a couple's retreat as well as for a large family stay as it can be both cosy and is also very spacious inside and out.
We had a fantastic stay at Buchananan Lodge and whata beautiful home and vista. The outdoor spa was a bonus
“a remarkable holiday detination”
I could not recommend Buchanan Lodge highly enough. The house is architecturally beautiful, very comfortably and stylishly fitted out and in the most breath taking setting you could ever hope to find yourself. A truly remarkable holiday spot. if you are skiing at Cardrona, be prepared for a decent drive each morning and evening, however when you get home and pour yourself a gin and tonic you will forget the drive. Very happy memories (and spectacular photos) for my whole family.
“Once in a lifetime - truly beautiful”
This is a truly unbelievable place to stay. A great home and a visit our family will never forget. It made our trip to New Zealand so memorable. Bedrooms lovely-extraordinary views from the kitchen. Great, comfy lounge room. Kids loved the kayaks. Just amazing.
“Fabulous family lodge on Lake Wanaka”
Buchanan Lodge is an utterly fantastic place to stay. We had a week there in winter with a group of friends and family and it was the perfect place to relax after a big day on the ski-field or after a big walk. The facilities are wonderful, modern and cosy and the views are stunning. As a Kiwi living in London, it was a real treat to be in such a peaceful place. The Hot Tub is a perfect place to relax and star-gaze and everyone from Grandad to teenagers were very comfortable in their rooms. Having rented holiday homes all over the globe, this is definitely in our top 3.
“Perfect family holiday”
We have stayed at Buchanan Lodge two times and absolutely loved it. Both times we had two families staying and it was ideal as the Lodge is so large and well appointed. The views are amazing, the Lake out one side of the house and the mountains out the other. We loved our days in the sun playing cricket, soccer and rugby on the huge lawn out the front followed by a swim, kayak, fishing off the rocks and picnic at the beach and then a hot spa. A magical place for a wine on a beanbag followed by a BBQ. On the odd colder night we all bundled onto the comfy sofas in the living room with an open fire. Our perfect family holiday. We will be back soon!
“How do you want to relax in style ?”
This are not enough superlatives to describe Buchanan Lodge so one will suffice - absolutely brilliant. The location is simply outstanding and breathtaking and coupled with the well equiped lodge our stay was nothing short of fantastic. The 20 minute drive into Wanaka is well worth it so you are able to debate which splendid barista you are going to frequent that day. Last but not least was the time we spent at Treble Cone (which was a mere 15 min drive away). If you have skiing in mind this is the place for you. Awesome !
“A luxury lodge in a stunning location”
Buchanan Lodge is a fabulous place to stay. It has every comfort imaginable and feels like a proper home rather than a holiday rental. Lots of things available for kids - I will always remember playing soccer in the garden with the amazing view behind us. There were also games and toys for smaller children (plus highchair, cot etc) which made it so much easier when arriving from a long haul flight. And of course there are the kayaks for paddling around the lake! The location is perfect - remote enough but still a short drive to Wanaka town and the private beach is the icing on the cake! We have been three times & would definitely go again.
