Blanket Bay


Welcome to Paradise

This place is my dream spot. 1000s of acres on a gorgeous lake with no development in line of sight.

First Impressions

The entrance to the main property

"Nice Vacation Home"

Just in case the B&B thing doesn't work out...

Blanket Bay Lodge

A really beautiful piece of Architecture inside and out

Nice Patio!

For the Birds

Patio outside our "suite"

Hugs on the Veranda

Overlooking lake Wakatipu near Glen Orchy about 1 hour north of Queenstown

Old tool shed

Beautifully restored and very authentic

Views for Miles

Lots of Vision

The American owners of Blanket Bay bought the property 20+ years ago when it could only be reached by 4wd. It was a sheep station (farm) for many generations prior. It is still an active farm


There are a few small standalone "cottages"...


New Zealand at its best!

The road to nowhere

The access road runs along the lake and is quite stunning on its own
