Your room is part of a historic lodge nestled lakeside in nature with fantastic views. Our stunning area has many activities to offer including various hikes, jet boat trips, scenic flights, kayaking, horse treks, ziplining and more. To relax there's a TV room, book exchange and hot tub, especially good for stargazing! If you don't feel like cooking up a feast take a break and dine in our cozy restaurant, we have something for everyone.

Please note that we're a 5hr drive from Milford Sound.

The space
The lodge is set by the edge of Lake Wakatipu with stunning mountains for a backdrop, a quiet spot with only frogs and owls for noise after dark. Our hostel rooms have shared bathrooms, a communal lounge, TV room and fully equipped kitchen. We're not too far from the hustle and bustle of Queenstown, but far enough for you to get back to nature. On site we have a restaurant serving delicious meals with locally sourced ingredients and award winning drinks, and during warmer months we offer kayak trips. If you're hiking the Routeburn or Greenstone/Caples tracks we run transport to the trail heads.

Guest access
You have access to your room, bathrooms, a communal kitchen, lounge and dining area, a tv room, the hot tub, our restaurant and small shop during opening hours, laundry facilities (not included in price), outdoor seating areas and of course the lakefront.

Other things to note
The last 9km of road to Kinloch is unsealed, however we've had different types of vehicle drive it with no problems. Phone reception is not guaranteed, , neither is the hot tub if maintenance is required. The nearest big supermarket is in Queenstown, 75km down the road.

The head of the lake offers up 2 valleys with the Dart River, a braided river that's constantly changing, and the Rees River. This is a place where you can be super active, hiking for days or getting an adrenaline fix, or switch off and relax, completely your choice.

Hi, I am Toni Glover, a busy mother of three gorgeous kids, James, Lucy and Sam.  My husband John and I own and run Kinloch Lodge, EcoScapes, Glenorchy Lake House and the Trading Post.  We live in a beautiful part of the world in a tiny hamlet called Kinloch at the head of Lake Wakatipu near Queenstown.  My personal values are a healthy, happy, familycentric life from where we and those that come into our life can nurture,  educate, explore and grow from.
