About Us

Cabot Lodge is a family owned business. Cam and Wendy McDonald, fifth generation sheep farmers, have owned Cathedral Peaks Station for over forty years. Their youngest daughter Breidi and her husband Brad wanted to continue the family legacy. The couple created Cabot Lodge at the centre of the farm, to share the families knowledge and passion for the area, with guests welcomed to the property as family. 

    Our History

    Cathedral Peaks Station owners, Cam and Wendy McDonald’s love of horses sparked their relationship, while their love of family, farming and Fiordland has united them together for over 40 years and counting.
