Certificate of Excellence
Stewart Island Lodge is one of New Zealand's southernmost lodges. With expansive views out to sea and over Halfmoon Bay the lodge is ideally situated on a hill just a five minute walk from the village. Its gardens are home to many native birds, including kaka (native parrots), which may be viewed from the terrace. Stewart Island Lodge is an up-market and peaceful B&B, nestled in native bush and provides a stunning setting and a well-appointed place to relax. We are open 1 Aug - 31 May. Stewart Island Lodge is also available at any time for group bookings for up to 12 people (6 bedrooms, lounge, kitchen and BBQ). Subject to availability.

Just stayed 3 nights. The lodge was excellent with great views over the harbour. Comfortable rooms with large bathroom and separate shower. Nice continental breakfast and tea coffee available all day. A very very steep but short walk up to the Lodge. Highly recommended
