John and Toni Glover owners of Kinloch Lodge since 2000 look forward to welcoming you to Kinloch. Set on the shores of Lake Wakatipu between the Routeburn and Greenstone tracks and just 5 minutes by boat from Glenorchy town, or a 26 km scenic drive, Kinloch awaits. Whether you’re here to relax and enjoy the many day walks, using our transport to arrive between the Routeburn, Greenstone, Caples and Rees and Dart tracks or you’re looking to enjoy a meal in our historic café restaurant, or heading out on one of our kayak trips, we look forward to seeing you here at Kinloch.
Lonely Planet "Author's Pick"
"our pick: Kinloch Lodge… Across Lake Wakatipu from Glenorchy, this excellent retreat is a great place to unwind or prepare for a tramp. Rooms in the bunkhouse are comfy and colourful, with an outdoor hot tub and an indoor DVD-packed lounge; both just right for putting your feet up after a long tramp. The 19th-century Heritage Rooms are small but plusher. A cafe, bar and good restaurant (mains $15-30; open 8am-8pm) are on site and if you're eating outside, look forward to stunning lake views and the attention of just maybe the South Island's friendliest dogs. Kinloch is a 26km drive from Glenorchy, or you can organise a five-minute boat ride ($10) across the lake. Kinloch Lodge can also arrange track transfers to various trail-heads. Even if you're not a tramping type, it's worth staying at least a night to soak up the relaxed ambience."
