Big Tree Lodge Reviews

Description

Big Tree Lodge combines colonial charm with the comforts of home. Our large colonial villa (formerly known as Redwood Lodge) and one time vicarage still features timber paneling, furniture, new timber ceilings and double glazed windows. It offers free unlimited WiFi, tea and coffee, towels, laundry facility, modern and spacious bathrooms with separate toilets and a comfy community living room including a log burner, large LCD TV with PS3, and DVDs. Books, jigsaws, boards games can be found in the hallway . Our large, fully-equipped kitchen, with 2 cookers, is directly connected to the living area.

There are six lockable bedrooms in the lodge: 2 twins, double, 4-bed and 5-bed shares, plus one double + single room for our family guests. And the best part? No bunk beds! Beds have warm duvets, mink blankets and electric blankets in private rooms, clean and heated. Linen and towels supplied. If you're too tired to relax by the cozy log burner after a hard day on the slopes our private rooms have LCD TV's with built in DVD players for your relaxation.

We have a free lockup for your snow gear and a snowboard/ski tuning area for your use.

We also offer free private off-street parking. There is mountain transport, door-to-door, and airport transfer available from local transport providers, booking a must. Plus, we're only four minutes walk from town centre!

Location and Contact

Location

• Big Tree Lodge Methven is located at 25 South Belt, two streets from the town centre of Methven Mt Hutt Village.
• From Christchurch head south towards Timaru on State Highway 1. Look for the Big Fish on the right just over the Rakaia River Bridge and turn right before the Mobil petrol station. At the roundabout turn left towards Mayfield down 'Thompson�s Track' (about 18kms) then follow the signs for Methven (about another 18kms). At the main intersection in Methven with the Blue Pub on your right, turn left down the main street (SH77) and South Belt is the second street on the right. This is the quickest route.
• From Queenstown and the inland lakes: The short route for those in a hurry: from SH8 in Fairlie, turn left at the sign to Geraldine and follow SH 72 (the Inland Scenic Route) until Mayfield then turn right at the major intersection just out of Mayfield where you then turn almost immediately left (signpost says Rakaia). Keep on this road till you come to a T-intersection, and then turn left as the sign post says to Methven. When you come to the 50km sign South Belt is the next left go down to no.25 on the left.
• For those not in a hurry take the scenic route along SH72, turn right down Pudding Hill Road towards Methven turn right down Hobbs Road and go round the back of the Golf Club, further down the road this becomes South Belt. After Wayne place we are on the right down the driveway to the right (nice and quiet!)
• You can take a shuttle bus from Christchurch Airport to Methven - departing 3 times daily in winter. Prebook it with Methven Travel and then on arrival go to the Travel and Information Desk in the International Arrivals Hall where the driver will meet you.
• Travel Times vary depending on road conditions. Allow 10-20 minutes drive to the base of Mt Hutt and at least an hour 15 to Christchurch Airport while road conditions are variable.
