Contact Annett and Phil (owners/operators) - we are happy to contribute what we can to make your Stewart Island visit a memorable one :-)

See the Aurora Australis - Southern Lights

Both bedrooms in the Lodge are facing South West - IF there is an Aurora (and we had awesome ones just lately!) you would see it right from your bed, and have glorious views from the deck! Above Observation Rock is no light pollution, and the best dark skies on the island to watch the stars.

Fine dining

Observation Rock Lodge is Stewart Island´s only fully catered luxury Lodge (or B&B). Take in the sunset view while dine-in at the dining table in the spacious lounge, enjoy gourmet meals and fine wines, featuring fresh local seafoods with home grown vegetables and herbs.

Make It special

Proposal, honeymoon, anniversary ...  go romantic! Beautiful food and wine, following a delightful soak in the Hot Tub under the stars; or enjoy the sauna looking out to native forest, finished with an outdoors shower.

Experience nature

The lodge is overlooking Paterson Inlet with unsurpassed panoramic views. An acre of secluded paradise with native forest and prolific birdlife for our guests to enjoy. You can watch the sunrise and sunset from here! Close to the village (walk 5-8 min) but away from the busy bay. Peaceful, quiet, private. The perfect place for the discerning nature lover and individual gourmet traveller.
