Queenstown Country Lodge offers
At Queenstown Country Lodge we (Ian and Sandie) offer a unique, welcoming and personalized country experience, combining the superb comfort and luxury of a boutique lodge with the peace and tranquility of a stunning rural setting
The Lodge sits back from the main road at the foot of Slope Hill with the towering Cardrona and Remarkables Mountains surrounding. Located on 5 hectares (11 acres) of peaceful farmland with extensive gardens, 700 peony roses, large organic vegetable gardens and a woodland area, the Lodge offers 5 beautifully furnished and stylishly decorated spacious en suited guest rooms located on the upper floor, each having its own unique panoramic views of the surrounding mountains and countryside of rural Queenstown. The lower floor includes an expansive open-plan lounge and library, separate kitchen and dining areas and a large outside living area for al fresco dining and relaxation. Located in the gardens is the 5 person spa pool.
Whether you are relaxing in the guest lounge by the log fire after a day skiing, rejuvenating in the garden spa pool after a walk in the mountains, or enjoying a glass of Central Otago pinot noir before a wonderful meal, Queenstown Country lodge will meet your every need. Make the Lodge home while you explore Queenstown, one of the truly wonderful holiday destinations in the world. The mountains and lakes around Queenstown are paradise to skiers, trekkers, walkers, mountain bikers, photographers and fishermen from all over the world.
Our Lodge is just 10 minutes from Queenstown and Arrowtown and is set back off the main road linking these 2 tourist attractions.

Ian and Sandie
Welcome to Queenstown and our new home! This is our dream job and giving you a special Kiwi hosting experience is very important to us!
We love entertaining, have always loved cooking and sharing times with friends and family
We competed in the first My Kitchen Rules New Zealand in 2014 and loved the experience and time together so we decided to take the plunge and jump with both feet into new lives at the Queenstown Country Lodge!
We love it here, and so will you! It is our mission to make your stay as good and as memorable as possible!
We come from very different backgrounds, and this has allowed us to bring a wide range of experiences and skills into the lodge. We have a healthy appetite, for work, play, food and humour so we would love to host you, to show our food, wine, to share your experiences and laughter!
