Buchanan Lodge is a luxury, self-catering lodge on the shores of Lake Wanaka. Situated on 60 acres of land designated as an area of outstanding natural beauty, it ensures complete isolation and will restore the soul. Whether to re-connect with extended family or just revel in a change of scene, Buchanan Lodge is the perfect spot.
It has the snow-capped peaks of the Buchanan mountain range on one side and the shores of Lake Wanaka on the other so in whichever direction you look you are assured of a stunning view. The town of Wanaka is within easy reach (20 mins) and for keen skiers, the Lodge offers the closest accommodation to Treble Cone ski area (10 mins).
On a snowy winters night, after a full day on the slopes, why not curl up with a book in front of the log fire; or in summer take a picnic down to one of the many private beaches and take a dip in the crystal clear waters of the lake.
Buchanan Lodge sleeps 9 people (2 doubles, 2 twins and 1 single), has 3 modern bathrooms (2 ensuite) and has a wonderful open-plan living area with state-of-the-art facilities. This opens onto a full-length veranda and a beautiful garden. The lawn stretches towards the lake – perfect for enjoying a glass of local Central Otago Pinot Noir and watching the sunset. It has 3 accessible private beaches (through a gate at the end of the lawn) and its own boat ramp.
Wanaka is situated in the heart of the Southern Lakes. For the active spirits, there is skiing, heli-skiing, snow boarding, water skiing, windsurfing, jet boating, mountain biking and much more right on the doorstep. Alternatively, there is golf, fishing, tramping and wine tours all within easy reach.
