Ghost Lodge is your ultimate Northern West Coast base regardless of time of year.
Ghost Lodge was originally built in the 1880’s as a butchers. Immense thought and care has been taken during its rebuild to retain its original charm with recycled native New Zealand timbers being used throughout. Lovingly renovated and restored, it’s fully insulated and carpeted throughout with a log burner to keep you cozy and warm during winter, and french doors that open out to stunning outdoor areas, allowing for plenty of fresh air flow to keep you cool and comfortable during summer.
The lodge is perfect for large groups, cyclists, motorcyclists on tour, families as well as individual travelers.
Ghost Lodge offers off street parking for cars, boats and bikes. It has beach access and free use of wetsuits, boogie boards and surf boards, so you can enjoy the beach – literally at the bottom of the garden. And if you’ve just ridden the Old Ghost Road (or the Heaphy Track) there are hoses for washing down your bike and plenty of space to park them. Take a break for a day or two (recover from those saddle sores) and relax at Ghost Lodge before your next adventure.
