Lime Tree Lodge, 6 km from Wanaka, is for the discerning traveller. The five-star lodge embodies all that is beautiful about Central Otago, a place which has become a tourist mecca for visitors from throughout New Zealand and from overseas.
It's for sale as a going concern (therefore price is plus GST (if any)), with the current owners having established a strong international reputation from which new owners can take this business to the next level. Set on just over four hectares of manicured, landscaped land, it's 6 km from Wanaka township and about an hour's drive to Queenstown's international airport.
It's luxury at its best, with the interior done in tasteful style and the exterior in classic Central Otago stone schist, and offers two luxury suites and four guest bedrooms, each with en-suited bathrooms and private access to the outdoors. Also attached to the lodge is a separate three-bedroom apartment suitable for the owner or manager of the lodge.
The lodge boasts an exclusive guest lounge and dining area which features Central Otago art, leather furnishings and an entertainment system. This area affords guests an impressive schist log fireplace to keep warm by over winter and French doors from the lounge to access the outdoor entertainment area, which includes a pool, in the hot Central summers.
An on-site consented helipad gives direct access to the region's spectacular ski fields, glaciers and sounds, with three ski and snowboarding areas nearby. Also on offer in the area are scenic cruises on the lake, tasting of local wines in the many local cellar doors, fishing, hiking and biking. The lodge is named after the avenue of trees leading to the property, and is renowned for its attentive service and among its accolades are a 2017 Certificate of Excellence from Tripadvisor. As well as being fully consented for weddings for up to 120 guests.
