Spent 3 nights at Lakestone Lodge in September. Was a truely amazing experience waking up to look at Mount Cook towering over the Lake, being pampered by the friendly staff and even experiencing the most amazing skywatch at night time. What a wonderful spot. Thanks.

About
Description
Brand New - Opened June 2016. Lakestone Lodge is exclusively positioned on the southern shores of Lake Pukaki with some of the most spectacular scenery in the country. The off-grid eco lodge has been designed More to maximise the panoramic views. Every room and bathroom share stunning views northward over Lake Pukaki to the Southern Alps. On calm days New Zealand's highest mountain, Aoraki/Mount Cook, can be seen reflected in the turquoise glacial waters of the lake. In contrast, mountain storms rolling in over the alps, can be viewed from the comfort and warmth of this luxurious lodge. In the evenings, after watching the sun setting over the mountains, guests can enjoy some of the clearest night skies in the world as Lakestone Lodge is located in the heart of the Aoraki Mackenzie International Dark Sky Reserve. Lakestone Lodge, centrally located, is an ideal base for exploring Aoraki/Mount Cook and the rest of the Mackenzie District as well as for relaxing and for making use of unlimited photographic opportunities.
