Our three night stay in a vineyard suite was just not long enough to begin to soak up the beautiful scenery looking out over an organic vineyard to the mountains beyond, the cozy suite, plus the amazing breakfast feasts each morning. Nettie and Jane are first rate hosts and chefs (they say 'just cooks') but this breakfast beats the Four... More

We stayed in one of the vineyard suites which was really fantastic. The room is designed perfectly, everything you might need was available, and the view from the bed on the vineyard is amazing. We can recommend the hot tub under the starry sky in the vineyard. We borrowed the bikes and made a ride in the area. The hosts... More

This place exceeded all expectations. The grounds are like an organic fairy tale. They have an herb garden, citrus, lavender and vegetables in bloom. All studded with playful sculpture from local artists. Not to mention the organic vineyards stretching out behind the room. The local area was stunning. We stayed here for two nights at the start of spring. The... More

It is lovely to be able to stay at a b & b within a vineyard. The hosts were friendly and made us feel welcomed. We were fortunate to be able to taste their wines and sit and talk about the area. The rooms were clean, but a bit rustic. Overall, it was such a nice experience.

We traveled in New Zealand for a month with another couple enjoying some of NZ's best B and B's and small inns. This was one of our favorites. Nettie, Bill and Jane are all wonderful hosts. They provide the much appreciated opportunity to visit with them and learn more about the area while offering well designed accommodations with complete privacy.... More

We booked the lodge for ten people over NY and found the place to be perfect. Highly recommend the platters to share, we had more than enough food and the outside seating was ideal. Hot tub was a winner with us all and the hospitality was excellent. Thanks Jane and Nettie for your welcoming experience.

We stayed at the independent cottage at Straw Lodge for 4 nights this past December. The cottage was very cosy with a little fireplace (although we didn't have to use it since it was summer), and great views of the vineyard. The vines were just steps from our bedroom and the surroundings were beautiful. Nettie and Jane (and Bill) were... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Luxury Bed & Breakfast in a unique vineyard setting Far from the madding crowds, in the heart of Marlborough's wine district, you will find Straw Lodge Vineyard, and our very different straw-bale constructed homestead and Vineyard Suites - a very special place where rest, relaxation and rejuvenation awaits the discerning traveller. Nestled amongst organic Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir vines Visible from each suite are glorious mountain ranges, behind which the sun sets in beautiful displays of rich colours. Before you retire to your cosy king size bed, bathe in our warm spa pool at night, and gaze up at the clear skies filled with a galaxy of stars. Each private suite has a lounge and en-suite bathroom. Full sumptuous breakfast created from local produce Rise at your leisure to a treat of a continental and/or cooked breakfast, created from home grown or locally produced foods of your choice. Then set out on our pedal bikes, take your own vehicle, or book a tour through the surrounding wineries. Internet use is free of charge, as are our golf clubs, DVDs, and a bottle of wine from our vineyard! ... more   less
