A lakefront heritage experience awaits at Kinloch Lodge just 1 hour yet a million miles from the busyness of Queenstown.
The lodge was established in the 1880s by Captain Richard Bryant, an Englishman who came to New Zealand to seek gold after 20 years at sea. Unlucky at the gold fields, he and his Irish wife, Mary Anne turned their hands to hospitality. After years of neglect, the lodge was purchased in 2000 by John and Toni Glover who lovingly restored it.
Soak up the heritage atmosphere as you enjoy lunch or dinner at this unique property with jaw-dropping views. The evening menu is changed nightly to reflect the best natural produce available, which is sourced locally and sustainably wherever possible.
Wild red deer is sourced from remote South Island high country stations, DOC administered forests and mountains while lamb is sourced from Cardrona valley and eggs are courtesy of the free-range hens which live at Kinloch. Even the coffee is made with filtered water sourced from nearby Dart River.
For a hearty and truly South Island dining experience, go on an adventure to Kinloch.
