Central Otago accommodation at
The Waiorau Homestead
Our spacious country homestead has recently been beautifully restored, and converted to a boutique lodge. It offers the finest luxury in Central Otago accommodation.
The homestead is in Cardrona, ideally located between Wanaka and Queenstown, and is nestled on ten acres of farmland with expansive views of Cardrona Ski Resort and the surrounding valley.
With extensive grounds and mature trees surrounding the homestead, it is an ideal wedding venue; honeymoon retreat; ski lodge; family gathering or small conference venue.
Enjoy the stunning views (see our gallery) from the comfort of your own private veranda accessed from the bedrooms, the guest dining room and the guest lounge.
The sophisticated interior of the homestead has an elegant and comfortable feel. The lodge boasts three stylish guest bedrooms, two with ensuites and one with a private bathroom including a spa-bath. Guests can relax in the private guest lounge and dining room. The exclusive guest lounge has all the comforts of home – games, library, large log fire and computer with internet access. Complimentary wireless internet access is available throughout the house.
Enjoy a sumptuous gourmet breakfast either in the elegant guest dining room or on the veranda during summer months.
You may join us for a delectable dinner prepared from only the freshest local produce from the lodge’s own vegetable garden and orchard. Locally sourced Cardrona lamb, beef, venison, as well as trout and salmon, are all offered on a seasonal basis.
In the evenings take in some magical stargazing by the outdoor fire or from the spa and enjoy our local world-class pinot noir wines.
“The most wonderful place we have stayed at. Blyth your cooking was divine and Ann you truly were the best host we could have hoped for. We will definitely come back again and again.”
