An avenue of 'tilea cordata' lime trees lend the Lodge its unique name and character. The rustic Central Otago exterior, featuring local schist stone, opens into a modern and stylish interior, with no expense spared on making the surroundings comfortable for guests and family.
This is a rare opportunity to purchase a five-star lodge set on 4.3 hectares in a magical rural setting within close proximity to Lake Wanaka resort town, and only sixty six kilometres from Queenstown's International Airport.
Immaculately presented and maintained, Lime Tree Lodge has been purpose built with high quality materials and offers two luxury suites and four elegant guest bedrooms, each with ensuite bathroom and private outdoor access. The exclusive guest lounge and dining area complete with leather suites, local art and entertainment system make this an ideal place for your guests to relax, complemented by an impressive schist log fire place for winter warmth. The French doors from the lounge create wonderful indoor/outdoor flow to the outdoor entertainment area in summer.
The manicured lawns, and home, combined with the spectacular mountain and rural views have provided a stunning backdrop to a number of wonderful weddings and social events over recent years. The property is perfectly positioned to take advantage of Wanaka’s fast-growing visitor market and its reputation as New Zealand’s leading conference, incentive, wedding and special event destination.
An on-site helipad provides direct access to the region's spectacular Mount Aspiring National Park, ski fields, glaciers and Fiordland Sounds, while a petanque court, croquet lawn, pitch-and-putt golf course, swimming pool and spa pool provide plenty of opportunity for on-site relaxation.
The adjacent private owners’ residence offers three bedrooms (or two plus office), bathroom, laundry and plenty of storage. There is an open-plan living/dining area with kitchen, all heated via a wood burner, heat pumps and solar hot water.
The current owners have developed the business from new and are seeing good growth in occupancy, turnover and profit. They have established business relationships throughout the world and Lime Tree Lodge is highly regarded within the travel industry. With good forward bookings and opportunities for further growth, Lime Tree Lodge offers a great prospect for the new owners in one of New Zealand's fastest growing resort towns.
