Kikiwa Lodge

Kikiwa Lodge is a sympathetically restored private home set on 10.5 acres of land bordered by the Motupiko River, the Golden Downs forest and sheep, beef and dairy farms, all framed by majestic mountain ranges. Kikiwa Lodge was the farm homestead of Blue Glen Station, owned by the Kerr family, early pioneers of the area. Kikiwa Lodge was built in 1914 by local craftsmen using beautiful native timbers milled on and around the property. The Lodge has been recently updated and extensive restoration completed to restore it to its former beauty retaining the character and ambiance of the past but providing the comforts and facilities expected by the discerning traveler of today.

There are three individually styled guest rooms, two with french doors to the veranda. Each room has top quality beds and linen, each with its own en-suite bathroom with shower, toilet, basin, complimentary toiletries and soaps made from the lavender grown on our property, heated towel rail, hairdryer and fan heater.

Guests can retire in our large communal lounge area with it’s open fireplace or relax on the open veranda with a glass of wine; enjoy an evening wander through the tranquil garden settings with views of the St Arnaud mountain range.

Kikiwa Lodge is located in the Northern part of the South Island of New Zealand, between Nelson (70 km’s) and St Arnaud (20 km’s) in the Nelson Lakes district.

Centered in the heart of the Nelson region, amidst the unspoiled beauty of alpine rivers, lakes, mountains and National Parks, the Lodge provides a gateway to the many outdoor and recreational activities of the area. World class trout fishing, fair game hunting, golf, tramping, trekking and bush walks, horse riding, white water rafting, jet boating, launch trips and sightseeing, canoeing and kayaking, farm tours and 4 wheel drive adventures, and vineyard and craft tours.

NOTE: We are in a rural location and the closest facilities are in St Arnaud, so pre planning for meals is advised. We are an adult only lodge and are unable to cater to children.
