Fodor's Review

The couple who created this boutique lodge have a loyal following of Cantabrians who enjoy their delightful mix of gentle hospitality and fine food. Robert and Christine Koller's latest venture is this purpose-built lodge in a beautiful park setting that looks out at the majestic Mt. Hutt. You could just have bed and breakfast, but that would be a waste. Place yourself in their hands and enjoy a predinner drink by the fire, then a four-course meal that is beautifully prepared. Vegetables are Robert’s particular passion, (he’s just released a vegetable cookbook), but the meat dishes are superb, too.
