We are a genuine West Coast pioneering family with a depth of interesting stories to tell about the history of our region.
Glenys has been involved in gold and coal mining for 30 years, her son Riley runs a modern day gold mining operation and daughter Bron is the farm manager producing most of the meats for the lodge meals.
If you choose to join us for an evening meal you will taste home grown meats and vegetables, with delicious desserts. Pre dinner drinks are served on the terrace as weather permits, we also have gluten free and vegetarian meals available.
Our specialty dessert is the NZ famous Pavlova made with local free range eggs and home grown strawberries.
