We recently stayed a night at the beautiful Waipou Lodge. Staying at this boutique lodge one of the places that made our holiday special. The dinner and breakfast were delicious (not to mention the dessert) that was awaiting us after the Twilight Encounter.

Stayed here in February. The accommodation, food and hospitality were excellent they couldn't do enough for us. You are well placed for the forest. There are interesting museums, wood carvers and nice country side around.
