Grasmere Lodge is 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 and serenity. Built in 1858, the original limestone homestead, now the core of the lodge, introduces you to the style of personal pampering which has encouraged Andrew Harper to recommend Grasmere since 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.
