From 26 March 2020, New Zealand is in lockdown for four weeks to stop COVID-19 in its tracks.
That means that, for now, the Retreat is closed. We’re already looking forward to re-opening and sharing our beautiful part of the world with you again.  With that in mind, we have put together some affordable winter packages to celebrate a return to normal with you.

Savour the tastes of nature 

Step into an uncomplicated world where food is real, water is pure and you are free to walk or run the forest tracks that meander around our property.    

At the Retreat, we love the garden and the pleasure that we get from providing fresh organic ingredients for you.  The garden is packed with berries, herbs and vegetables of all kinds, all with a forgotten taste that evokes the freedom of childhood. 

What is important to us is the authenticity and pureness of the food we serve and we use local suppliers for things we cannot produce here such as free range eggs, manuka honey, juices, apricots or cherries.

'My husband booked Mount Cook Lakeside Estate as a surprise weekend away for my 60th birthday.'The location is idyllic with lots of outdoor activities on offer should you be inclined. The accommodation is luxurious,spotlessly clean, warm and welcoming. The food prepared by chef Tom is simply delicious. Fresh, locally sourced ingredients cooked to your individual tastes and delivered to your dining table. Luke, Kaye and staff could not have done any more to make this a perfect stay.'
