Grasmere Lodge - Canterbury, South Island, New Zealand

Rooms & Suites: 13

Grasmere Lodge — High Country Retreat — where luxury and natural splendour come together in the heart of the Southern Alps, to form what one international guest described as "a whole other world of peacefulness & serenity."

Situated on State Highway 73, 120 km west of Christchurch and 30 km east of Arthur's Pass village, near Cass. Built in 1858, the original limestone homestead, now the core of the lodge, introduces you to the style of personal pampering that earned the Harper's Hideaway Report Grand Award in 1998. At the same time this traditional New Zealand high country station (ranch), set amid towering 7000 ft peaks, provides a wide range of outdoor activities for those seeking a more adventurous interlude. Grasmere Lodge also offers a richness of traditional New Zealand hospitality. Owner, Tom Butler, and his staff epitomise New Zealand friendliness and generosity of spirit. Together they take great delight in sharing the magic of Grasmere with their guests.
