A cosy home of just four spacious guestrooms and two suites, personal service and 10 acres of lawn, rose bushes, orchards, herb gardens, oak and fir trees await at the intimate Lime Tree Lodge near Wanaka.
Lovely Lime Tree Lodge is a delightful little retreat near Lake Wanaka, with mountain views, homecooked cuisine and an outdoor swimming pool within its private 10-acre estate, which itself is also filled with pristine flower gardens, orchards and lawns.
Lime Tree Lodge is proudly intimate too and has just four guestrooms and two suites, a comfortable communal lounge and games room in addition to those charming outdoor spaces and panoramic vistas at every turn.
The spacious rooms here all enjoy a private patio and French windows, ideal if looking for a romantic night in as a gourmet meal and wine can be delivered to your door.
You’ll find underfloor heating, a king-size bed and a handful of other in-room amenities in each, while suites offer a much bigger floorplan and extras such as a well-stocked minibar and lounge area.
This boutique South Island property also benefits from easy access to the highlights of wider Wanaka, such as Mount Aspiring National Park; the wineries of Central Otago; extreme sports in nearby Queenstown; boat tours and endless scenic hiking routes through the Te Wahipounamu World Heritage Area.
And when it comes to dining at Lime Tree Lodge, delicious homemade food is available on request and served either in the dining area or delivered to your guestroom (there is no regular dining service here unless pre-booked).
What’s more, there is also a daily shuttle service to some of the many fantastic restaurants in Wanaka, which is well worth making use of.
Overall, Lake Wanaka’s Lime Tree Lodge in the southwestern corner of South Island is a wonderful choice if looking for something a little more serene and low-key, tailored towards adults (young children are only allowed if booking the entire property), with timeless mountain views, a heated swimming pool, gardens for private dining or games and the best of Wanaka all around.

The four guestrooms and two Signature Suites at Lime Tree Lodge are all nice and airy, thanks to French windows that lead out onto a private furnished patio and the gardens beyond. Each is very comfortable too, with king-size beds, underfloor heating, a rain shower and other mod-cons as standard, while suites are considerably more spacious and enjoy a comfortable lounge area too. The décor scheme – as with the rest of the property – is homely, though modern and sophisticated in equal measure.
Activities and Entertainment
Lime Tree Lodge is perfectly placed to explore Lake Wanaka and its surrounds, an area known for outdoor activities and extreme sports as well as plenty of sightseeing and scenic walks. Mount Aspiring National Park is nearby and Queenstown can be reached within an hour, while biking, hiking, rock climbing, boat tours and golf can all be enjoyed within touching distance of the lodge itself.
The very nature of Lime Tree Lodge, being an intimate countryside homestead, means just a handful of onsite facilities – leaving more time to enjoy the nearby highlights of Lake Wanaka and its surrounds. That said, there is still a lovely heated swimming pool and patio here, extensive gardens and lawns for ball games, orchards, and a library filled with books and DVDs in the communal lounge.
