Purpose-built on the edge of a glacial terrace, Birds Ferry Lodge overlooks native forest in the valley below and the Tasman Sea beyond. The Lodge is the centre piece of our 33 acre property which you are welcome to explore.

Midway between the Glacier Country in the South and the Northern areas of the South Island, this luxury lodge is the perfect spot to break your journey along the West Coast.

On arrival you will enjoy a warm welcome from your hosts Alison and Andre, then peace seclusion and relaxation awaits you.

Lodge facilities

Accommodation Westport West Coast|Luxury B&B|Coastal Bed and Breakfast|West Coast|New Zealand Great Viewsdinners are our specialty...Bed & Breakfast guests enjoy the spacious guest lounge. Comfy leather upholstery and a roaring log fire in front of the huge windows where you can take in the view out to the ocean and the Totara Valley below.

Enjoy a welcome refreshment on arrival accompanied by some of Alison’s home baking or a pre-dinner aperitif from the house bar.

Dinners are our specialty so be sure to book!

The library is stocked with a selection of magazines and books with something to interest most. There is also a supply of board games and puzzles for a day indoors.

The semi-remote, rural location close to Westport means that the wildlife is in abundance. The native Weka visits the garden and at night the call of the Kiwi has been heard from the Lodge. Wild deer have been spotted from the deck and whilst enjoying the spa after dark guests are kept company by our local Common Owl who rests on the back of the chair right beside them! Tui and Bell birds visit the well-stocked bird table.

Birds Ferry Lodge is currently Number one on Tripadvisor in this area and we are recommended in both ‘Fodors’ and ‘Rough Guide’ to New Zealand.

“Excellent location: close enough to towns, restaurants and sight but also far enough to be surrounded by nature and completely undisturbed by any cars, noise or city lights. A big thank you to Andre for taking us on tours off the beaten track to hidden spots with great views without any other tourists. Thank you Alison for the delicious homecooked meals and vegetables straight from the garden. We’ll be back soon!” Ian – South Africa

    “Lovely rural spot. Plenty to see as you walk around the large property. The hosts have created a comfortable spot with plenty of gardens all around. Gourmet food, stunning views. Westport is about a 20 minute drive. We drove in to a livestock fair and then onto an ocean side cafe for lunch. My highest recommendation.” – Mary-Lynn 2017
