Aldourie Lodge & Parkbrae Estate Review

With a fireplace, clawfoot bathtubs, lake views, and a library, Aldouri Lodge is an enchanting place to unwind. The owners Graeme and Carolyn Murray saved Lake Tekapo's oldest cottage from being torn down and renovated it, retaining the character while adding modern luxuries. The view is superb. Room rates are for two people. Inquire about the Murrays' other properties, which are just as delightful and cozy. (The Garden Cottage, across the street, has the Prime Minister and a member of royalty in its guestbook!)
