Maple LodgeWe invite you to stay in Wanaka at our purpose built luxury bed & breakfast accommodation where you will enjoy the most comfortable beds, gorgeous en-suite bathrooms and elegant rooms with stunning views toward the surrounding mountain ranges.

Our extensive gardens are a peaceful place where you can listen to birdsong, admire the countryside or stargaze in the clear night sky and take a relaxing soak in the hot tub (spa).

Modern comforts such as air-conditioning, wi-fi access, flat screen TVs to which you can connect all your devices, will ensure your comfort and keep you connected to home on your amazing New Zealand vacation. In winter, sitting beside our warming log fire with a glass of wine is the perfect place to relax and plan for the next day or for the evening ahead. In summer, enjoy the evening sunshine on the courtyard patio.

At Maple Lodge, we have blended the best sustainable practices of insulation, double gazing, heating etc from our European background with Kiwi features such as the striking local schist stonework. The result is a beautiful, modern building that transforms into a comfortable, welcoming boutique accommodation lodge that sits seamlessly within the natural landscape. We feel our efforts have been well rewarded with our independently assessed Qualmark Boutique and Lodge 5 Star rating and our commitment to sustainable practice is recognized with the Qualmark Green – Silver rating. We also have the Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence for 2013 & 2014.

maple lodgePaul has a long relationship with New Zealand, arriving here nearly 25 years ago and deciding to call it home ever since. In 2005 we (Paul, Berny and Mini our dog) took a road trip through New Zealand before finding our perfect spot and building our stunning Wanaka home – Maple Lodge. We were drawn to the location by its spectacular views of the Southern Alps, the beautiful maple trees and all only minutes to Lake Wanaka. The maple trees instantly gave our home its name of Maple Lodge long before we started building and they continue to delight us throughout the seasons with changes of colours giving way to the stark branches and the ever present amazing view beyond them. These days, Paul spends his time looking after the lodge and grounds including his new hobby – an apiary. The bees are fascinating and this year we will be able to add our own honey to our breakfast menu. Berny keeps an eye on the chickens, looks after the roses and the fruit production for jam making, enjoys photography as a hobby and keeps up to date with current trends to ensure your comfort during your stay with us. We have both spent many years travelling the world for business and leisure and in doing so gathered concepts and designs for the perfect home away from home that has materialized in Maple Lodge. Along the way we have met many people from all walks of life who have remained firm friends. We love to share our passion for this beautiful place we have chosen to call home. We are sure the stunning surroundings, our comfortable accommodation and our welcoming hospitality will make you feel like you have found the perfect place to stay too.
