Stories From The Farm

What's happening at Waitomo Boutique Lodge & Montrose Country Estate

It’s time to celebrate! Our hard work, dedication and passion has been recognized by guests, and their reviews have earned us a 2016 Guest Review Award.
Thank you to everyone whom have visited Waitomo Boutique Lodge over the summer. We have meet some beautiful people and made many close contacts to hopefully visit one day in the future. Also thank you to those lucky few who happened to be staying with us while we were Drafting/ Shearing and weaning the Ewes & Lambs. We had great weather and it is these special moments that will be treasures for ever.
The Waitomo Great walk is coming along nicely with quite a number of guest enjoying the native while walking it.
