The River HouseFrom $800/night
Nestled among native harakeke on the banks of the tranquil Hawea River, The River House Wanaka is a sanctuary to stay and feel at home, a place to catch one’s breath and wind down – or wind it up and hold an unforgettable event. Set in lush, established grounds with mountain views, The River House Wanaka provides an awe-inspiring backdrop for your event, a family holiday or a retreat.
Wind down the peacefully private auric valley driveway to The River House Wanaka, with its naturally untouched beauty and charm, secluded gardens pathways with small foot bridges, sylvan forest and its very own waterfall stream.
The expansive living and dining areas have a cosy log burner and indoor/outdoor flow that look out to the beautiful river, mountain views and private secluded gardens. The eco blocked Pueblo-esque walls, tiled floors, high exposed wood beam ceilings and frames, clawfoot bathtub and an open air outdoor bath are all incredibly romantic. With 6 bedrooms, you can host a large group and events such as a wedding for example.
Adventure and activities are plentiful and accessible – kayak, river raft or helicopter landing. The property also has an established 1.5km private mountain bike trail for your use and an outdoor entertaining area and patio with BBQ facilities.
