A superbly set up wedding and function centre enhanced by an authentic character villa exuding old world luxury and a barn style home.
Charlemagne Lodge has more than doubled its event business, mainly weddings, annually over the past couple of years. Experience is not necessary when you take over a seamless operation with bookings out till November 2020. There is further scope for growth in both the wedding and corporate function sectors at this local landmark.
The authentic two storey villa, framed by flowering cherries provides high-end accommodation for a bridal party, and has also been run as a 'B&B'. Gleaming native timbers, warm reception rooms, luxurious bedrooms, and sunny verandas create a unique retreat. This replica Victorian influenced character home was built from scratch in the mid-1990s using genuine materials, period decor, and incorporating contemporary convenience and comfort. The lodge is being sold fully furnished. (It would of course make a wonderful family home.)
Photogenic gardens featuring a ceremonial pagoda link the adjoining nicely foliaged function centre, licensed for 120 with its own commercial kitchen, bar, large courtyard and ample on-site parking. The "barn" conceals separate spacious accommodation which invites you and your family to live on a beautiful site and run a lucrative lifestyle enterprise. Living on site lets you enjoy grounds maintenance in your own time and the seasonal nature of the wedding business allows you down time if you want it.
Charlemagne Lodge, noted for its beautiful Spring display of pink flowering trees, often lit up at night, is a local landmark in an elevated situation above State Highway Two with I'Anson Bush Reserve right next door. Te Puna village is a few hundred metres along the road.
