Have you been dreaming of where you would go in Level 2? Come to Buchanan Lodge - 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's time for all Kiwis (and Aussies when you can) to re-discover your own backyards - staycations are the new normal!
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.
