Set amid stunning alpine scenery on the eastern shores of Lake Wakatipu, Blanket Bay Lodge is an elegant and welcoming retreat. The 12 rooms all make the most of the spectacular mountain and lake views and all have either a private balcony or terrace.
Comfortable sofas and open fires create a cosy and relaxed atmosphere. Additional facilities include a heated lap pool, and a small gym and the restaurant creates a five-course evening meal which changes daily with a choice of dining venues.
Why we like Blanket Bay
Blanket Bay is secluded yet within reach of the buzz of Queenstown. It is particularly welcoming in the winter months when the open fires come into their own and skiing is available on the nearby mountains.

- Small gym
- Steam room, sauna and jacuzzi

Take a canoe out on the lake or hire a bike and head into the small town of Glenorchy to explore. There are lots of walking trails surrounding the property as well as the opportunity for horse riding, Heli excursions and skiing in the winter months.
Located 50 minutes from Queenstown airport and a five-minute drive from the small settlement of Glenorchy.
