You’ll love the peaceful location, overlooking green fields and out to the ocean. Great if you love history, walking, native birdlife and relaxing in country charm.

We are a conveniant driving distance between Mount Cook, the Moeraki Boulders, Elephant Rocks, Oamaru's Little Blue Penguins, Dunedin's Albatross colony and plenty of other must-do's for any visitor to the area!

Te Kiteroa translates from Maori to "The Long View" Each bedroom enjoys a "long view" of hills and Pacific coastline. The Lodge's unique setting is at the foot of the Hunters Hills, nestled among native bush.

Where Old Meets New

This is a fabulous space to relax, unwind and enjoy the sun on the large deck area, or to wander around the gardens while listening to native birdsong. Many of our guests have returned time and time again, with most wishing they had longer to enjoy their stay!

You will experience the ultimate relaxing getaway, a rare opportunity to enjoy tranquil days and clear night skies filled with stars. Sitting in our outdoor hot tub with a glass of wine and watching the Milky Way is one memory guests take home with them that lasts a lifetime. 

Downstairs you will find many historical original features gracing each room, make sure to look up and enjoy the ceiling artwork preserved since 1913! Upstairs, each bedroom has its own ensuite and its own unique features such as feature fireplaces, sash windows, and heart rimu woodwork. 

Outside you will find spacious gardens, a covered porch area next to the living room, a large deck area with panoramic views, and hot tub to soak in at the end of the day.

Te Kiteroa Lodge is a charming piece of living history. It is over 100 years old (built in 1913) and is part of an original larger estate with other accommodation built for the staff to the Lodge.
