If you're looking to relax we have a TV room, games, a book exchange and a hot tub (especially good for stargazing!)

The last 9km of road to Kinloch is unsealed, however we've had different types of vehicle drive it with no problems. Phone reception is not guaranteed. The nearest big supermarket is in Queenstown, 75km down the road.
Hi, I am Toni Glover,I am a busy mother of three gorgeous kids, James, Lucy and Sam aged between 13 and 10. My husband John and I own and run Kinloch Lodge, Glenorchy Lake House and the Trading Post. We live in the most beautiful part of the world in a tiny hamlet called Kinloch at the head of Lake Wakatipu near Queenstown. My personal values are a healthy, happy, family centric life from where we and those that come into our life can nurture, educate, explore and grow from.
