About the property

Lodge, 6 Bedrooms, 1 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 15)

The Ghost Lodge is perfectly located for adventures in the wilderness of Northern Buller, an area steeped in history. Drive 20 minutes to the beginning of The Old Ghost Road; 5 minutes drive to Charming Creek Walkway; 20 minutes drive to the Denniston Plateau for mountain bike tracks, walks and The Denniston Experience (historic coal mine train trip); 65 kms north to Karamea (where you'll find the Heaphy Track, the Wangapeka Track and the Oparara Basin with spectacular caves and limestone arches).

The Ghost Lodge began its life as a butchery, built in the 1880's, and has been painstakingly rebuilt with care taken to retain its original charm whilst modernising every aspect of this beautiful six bedroom building. It's warm and cosy, insulated and carpeted throughout with a huge log fire providing heat upstairs and downstairs. It's perfect for large groups, families or individuals. We have off street parking, beach access, free wetsuits, boogie boards and surf boards. Downstairs we have a fully equipped galley kitchen with gas hob, electric oven, fridge, microwave, dishwasher and coffee maker. The dining area is off the kitchen and leads into a large living room with log fire, Freeview TV, stereo and DVD player. Two sets of french doors lead to an outside deck where you can relax after a long day of adventuring or walk to the beach to watch spectacular West Coast sunsets. Also downstairs are four double bedrooms, all with quality super-comfort queen size beds. The bathroom has double basins, shower and a separate toilet.

Upstairs is another large living room with a pool table, Freeview TV, stereo and DVD player. French doors lead to a sunny deck with sea views and a spa pool to luxuriate in under the stars. With plenty of afternoon sun this is a popular place to relax and watch the ever changing ocean and magnificent sunsets. There are two very large bedrooms with quality super-comfort queen size beds as well as an extra queen and an extra single bed.

Special conditions:

We have single room rates as well as rates for booking the whole lodge, upstairs only or downstairs only - please enquire.
