Hours: 8am - 6pm

Welcome to the relaxed luxury and homely charm that is Wanaka Homestead. Privately owned and welcoming just 21 guests, the hospitality is warm & attentive, yet discreet. Situated next to the resplendent Wanaka Station Park on the shores of Lake Wanaka, Wanaka Homestead offers the choice of boutique bed & breakfast accommodation in the Homestead Lodge or self-catering in the family-friendly Ruby Cottage and Lismore Cottage. Wanaka Homestead also warmly welcomes groups that wish to have full use of Wanaka Homestead. Superbly located, Wanaka Homestead is a stone’s throw from Lake Wanaka and the infamous Wanaka Tree, an easy stroll to the vibrant Wanaka township and a splendid short drive to awe-inspiring vistas and adrenaline-inducing landscapes. In Wanaka Station Park – our ‘front yard’ – you will find a beautiful, hidden, green park space with a small children’s playground, giant sequoias, Himalayan cedars, a large walnut tree and an enormous rhododendron hedge along with the Station’s surviving orchard, with pears and apples free for picking. Towering redwoods and a rose arbor featuring heirloom roses popular in the early 1900s will lead you down to the shores of Wanaka Lake – and the Wanaka Tree – and to the start of seemingly endless stunningly beautiful walking tracks.
