This unique lodge and restaurant is a peaceful place, showcasing southern hospitality and local cuisine.
Stunning sunsets over untouched nature, serene tranquility and utmost comfort – all offered at the southern edge of civilisation here at Observation Rock Lodge. We offer various comfortable styles of accommodation, including; deluxe lodging, bed and breakfast at the Lodge, or a cottage bedroom.
Both bedrooms in the Lodge are facing South West - if there was an Aurora (we have had some awesome ones lately!) you would see it right from your bed, as well as having an awesome view of the Southern cross rising! Above Observation Rock there is no light pollution, providing some of the best dark skies in Southland to watch the stars and glimpse the Aurora Australis (Southern Lights).
Observation Rock Lodge is Stewart Island's only fully catered luxury Lodge (or B&B). Take in the sunset view while dining at the table in the spacious lounge and enjoying fine wines and gourmet meals, made with fresh local seafoods with home grown vegetables and herbs.
As well as scrumptious food and wine, we also have a hot tub under the stars and a sauna looking out to native forest. The Lodge is situated in the bush on an acre of secluded paradise, overlooking Paterson Inlet with unsurpassed panoramic views. To top it off we're close to the village (a five minute walk) but away from the busy bay. Peaceful, quiet, private. The perfect place for the discerning nature lover and individual gourmet traveller.
