Located on a 2000 acre sheep, deer and cattle farm bordering the Fiordland National Park, Cabot Lodge is the the perfect base to explore Fiordland. The property is four minutes from Lake Manapouri, five minutes from the departure point for Doubtful Sound, 10 minutes from the Kepler Track (one of New Zealand's ten Great Walks) and 20 minutes from the stunning Milford Road, which leads to Milford Sound, the Routeburn Track and Milford Track. Cabot Lodge also has direct access to the Waiau River, which is renowned for its trout fishing.

Cabot Lodge provides an authentic New Zealand dining experience. With fruits and vegetables grown on the property, Blue Cod fresh from the Sounds, venison from the hills of Fiordland, lamb from the paddocks of Southland and salmon raised down the road on Stewart Island, there is a story behind every dish.
Breakfast at Cabot Lodge includes a continental spread of homemade breads, pastries, chia cups, muesli, fresh fruit, nuts, yoghurts, and a wide selection of juices, tea and coffee. Guests can also select from a cooked breakfast menu, with delights such as grilled banana pancakes, BLT bagel, and a full farmers breakfast with venison sausage, bacon, grilled tomato, mushroom and eggs.
Lunch can be provided either at the Lodge, or as a picnic to be enjoyed while exploring Fiordland. The Lodge lunch is a ploughman's style offering, with sandwiches made to order, a selection of cheese and crackers, as well as nuts, fresh fruit and a homemade sweet slice.
Dinner is a set-menu offering, which showcases seasonal produce from Fiordland and the farm. The set-menu changes daily, catering to all dietary restrictions. Due to the Lodge's remote location, all dietary preferences must be provided prior to guest arrival.
A sample menu:
Entree - Fiordland venison with a balsamic and blackberry glaze on rocket and a creamy blue cheese, with a hot smoked Stewart Island salmon on a herbed blini with horseraddish cream.
Main - Herb crusted Southland lamb rack with grilled honey glazed baby carrots, a minted pea puree and a roasted kumara and chorizo salad with parmesan and toasted walnuts.
Dessert - Dark chocolate torte with vanilla bean ice cream, crushed honeycomb and a berry coulis.
Spent 4 nights at Cabot Lodge. It’s a magical place. Can’t recommend it highly enough. Stunning location. Wonderfully gracious hosts.
Everything was exceptional, from the food to the luscious bathrobes, to the insane views, to the crazy cute lambs.
