The Pear Orchard Lodge (up to 8 guests)

Planning a post-lockdown getaway in the Nelson Tasman region for a group, and looking for modern styling and rustic country charm? The Lodge is the perfect country escape for a weekend with friends and family or for a special event. It’s a great base to explore, with picturesque beaches, vineyards and cafes, local artisans, MTB parks and cycle trails, as well as the Abel Tasman, Kahurangi and Nelson Lakes national parks close by. Supermarkets, bakeries etc. are a handy 5 mins away in Richmond.

This listing is for exclusive use of the whole lodge, utilising the upstairs four bedrooms only. Two of the upstairs rooms have king (or two single) beds, ensuites and private balconies, the other two have king (or two single) beds and share a generous family-style bathroom. If your group is bigger, see our separate listing for up to 16 guests, as well as our cottage which can accommodate up to 4 further guests. A portacot and highchair are available on request.

The Lodge has a generous kitchen and farmhouse-style dining area, with large verandah and bbq, so allows groups to self-cater and eat together around the table. On one of Nelson’s famously sunny evenings, crank up the barbie and enjoy dinner al fresco at the big table on the verandah, or relax on the lawn. On cooler nights, get the log fire cranking and make use of the board games!
