The ResurgenceYour Hosts Clare and Peter….are well traveled, having lived and worked in the UK, France, Asia, US and Australaisia. They returned to New Zealand in 2003 to start up this new concept in accommodation. “Our objective was to create a place to relax – a friendly atmosphere, a supurb natural setting with five star comforts plus a high degree of privacy & personal space” says Clare. “Many aspects of the lodge are based on Gite d’Etapes we stayed in whilst living in France, which provide walkers, cyclists and other lovers of the outdoors good value accommodation and great regional cooking.”

Peter is Chairman of one of New Zealand’s largest community conservation groups, Friends of Flora and he spends his spare time hiking, birdwatching and cycling.  Clare is a great foodie and loves relaxing with a new cookbook or getting out cycling and hiking.
