I could not wait to give Ann and John a 5 star rating. They have the Lodge B&B business down to finely honed art. The grounds are immaculate with mature plantings, set on beautiful Endeavour Inlet. The well appointed lodge for guests overlooks their charming 1800's homestead. Our sunny room with an ensuite faced the Inlet and had a private...

This is a beautiful place on the QCT. We loved everything. The dinner was incredible, and the conservatory venue perfect. Best were the packed lunches for the next day's tramp. Friendly, warm, accomodating... perfect.

We spent one night at Mahana Lodge while walking the QCST. Our hosts John and Anne did everything to make us enjoy our stay. The ensuite rooms in the Lodge were very comfortable with wonderful views over Punga Cove. The organic food from John's garden made for a wonderful dinner and his home smoked salmon was exquisite. A delightful piece...

We spent just one night here last week after the second day of our walk on the QCT. Lovely to relax in the comfy lounge overlooking the Bay and then to enjoy a memorable meal cooked and served by Ann and John in the beautiful Conservatory. Wonderful, friendly, helpful Hosts and truly comfortable accommodation.

Personal hosting, excellent food (including a cornucopia of salad greens from the hosts' garden), and comfortable rooms with private balconies all add up to a special place in an idyllic location. Mahana hosts John and Ann are attentive, but non-intrusive hosts who offer their guests (8 maximum) an opportunity to enjoy dinner together at a common table -- a welcome...

We spent 2 nights at Mahana during our walk of the Queen Charlotte track. Its a lovely spot in its own little cove with the lodges set back at the bush edge. Very comfy and excellent meals too, all served with warmth and care by John and Ann. Hosts don't come any warmer or more accommodating and their care makes...

My 3 generation family have just spent 3 days at Mahana Lodge to celebrate my 70th birthday. Words like amazing, perfect, terrific, fabulous etc kept being repeated.

Staying at Mahana Lodge was a highlight during our walk on the Queen Charlotte Track. After torrential rain what a warm greeting we received. The accom is lovely and tea and coffee and afternoon included was a welcome surprise. Ann and John provided a delicious meal and lovely wines. A great conclusion to an excellent day.

Spent our second night on the QCT at Mahana Lodge and it was the absolute highlight of our entire 4 night/5 day experience. John and Ann were extremely welcoming hosts who really seem to care about their guests. The accommodation itself is four rooms arranged around a communal kitchen/lounge and is very comfortable. The kitchen is not available to cook...

Our cycling of the queen charlotte trail was cancelled because of heavy rain but we chose to drive out and stay here anyway, and we are so pleased we did. The drive out is very slow (2 hours from the point you turn off the main road) but it's also beautiful and very enjoyable if you're not in a hurry....
