Laid back area of NZ amongst sheep farms...we were there after ski season and glad for some downtime. Hung out in Methven and local golf courses. On site restaurant, Chef Butch provides cuisine delicious...with musical entertainment provided by the accomplished Jo on vocals/guitar. We were very comfortable here for a week.

We talked over the phone before arrival and immediately felt the warm & caring welcome. Upon our arrival - we were helped to settle in as we arrived after dark.

We stayed at Mount Hutt Lodge for two weeks in August, one week in a rental apartment and one week in a timeshare exchange. The owners (Jo and Butch) were very helpful and accommodating, when sorting out the different check-in/out dates for the different units. The rental unit was slightly larger and a little less luxuriously appointed, but the difference...

This was a great choice for us. We stayed a week in a 1 bedroom apartment which was warm and cosy and had a fully equipped kitchen. A very nice view of the mountain and the Rakaia River and i think the closest accommodation to Mt Hutt skifields. There is a restaurant on site and they had a log fire...

Warm welcome from Jo and Butch. Immediately felt at home in the cosy room. View was to die for. Amenities were basic but adequate. Marvellous trail, managed only 1 in Rakaia Gorge.

This comment only describes the lunch experience we had there: From across the canyon we saw that place and felt that it is a good location for lunch.

We were booked into the Mt. Hutt lodge through our vacation club and were very happy here. In spite of some cloudy days, our time in the area was very nice. Although we could have availed ourselves with some excellent skiing at nearby Mt. Hutt, we instead opted for hiking and sightseeing. The lodge is conveniently located within an hour...
