Kokonga Lodge
Kokonga Lodge provides stylish bed and breakfast accommodation in the vast Maniototo plain, known as “big sky” country. The lodge overlooks the Taieri River and the Kakanui Mountains and is surrounded by five acres of lawn and gardens. The lodge is ideally situated beside the Otago Central Rail Trail and is close to State Highway 87, 1.5 hours drive from Dunedin and 2.5 hours drive from Queenstown.

The lodge offers six well-appointed bedrooms with ensuites and with views over the gardens and the Maniototo plains. The warm and inviting guest areas include a reading room, dining area and lounge and open out onto an extensive deck.

Your hosts Dorothy and Malcolm have particular interests in books, art and gardening. Malcolm specialises in growing paeonies, roses and lilies and his potager vegetable garden provides the lodge kitchen with a wonderful selection of fresh produce. A full breakfast is included in the tariff and dinner is optional. Dorothy’s cooking has gained a reputation for innovation and excellence and the majority of guests tend to dine at the lodge. Alternative options are offered.

Dorothy is a water colour painter and the lodge features a variety of art works including a number of her own works.

Stay at Kokonga Lodge for a few days and participate in a variety of activities, short walks, fishing, guided adventure tours with a local farmer with a wealth of local knowledge, bike one of the most scenic sections of the rail trail, gold pan with Malcolm, try your hand at the ancient Scottish sport of curling on the only indoor curling rink in the Southern Hemisphere or relax at the lodge with a glass of wine and a book from the extensive library.
