Stay at Cabot Lodge
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, 15 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.
Accommodating a maximum of ten guests, Cabot Lodge has only four suites. Each suite is a separate building, linked by covered walkways, which surround a beautiful garden courtyard and outdoor fireplace. Guests will instantly feel at home, lazing on the sumptuous day beds, watching the sun setting over the water from our outdoor patios, and soaking in the clawfoot bathtubs while gazing out over the surrounding mountains. The Lodge living room boasts a library of classic literature and well-loved New Zealand authors, providing the perfect excuse to curl in front of the open fire with a glass of New Zealand wine. The Lodge's intimate dining room enables guests to watch our chef in action while enjoying fresh farm to plate produce.
Cabot Lodge welcomes all visitors with an arrival drink, before inviting guests to enjoy on-farm activities. Each evening guests are provided a pre-dinner drink and canapés followed by a thoughtfully prepared set-menu showcasing local cuisine. Guests wake to a hearty continental and cooked breakfast offering, before heading out to enjoy the wonders of Fiordland. The team at Cabot Lodge ensure guests feel indulged and at home in this incredible slice of paradise.
