Lime Tree Lodge, set on a ten acre estate just outside Lake Wanaka, officially re-opened this month, with new owners and a renewed focus on authentic southern hospitality and outdoor adventures.

New owners, John and Pauline Trotter, previously owned a high country station in South Canterbury, and are committed to delivering luxury experiences at the property.

The lodge boasts four guestrooms and two private suites, each with an expansive veranda and gardens with magnificent views of the Southern Alps.

An on-site helipad provides direct access to the region’s spectacular ski fields, glaciers and sounds, and there’s also a pétanque court, croquet lawn, pitch-and-putt golf course, swimming pool and spa.
