Nestled in the outer reaches of the Queen Charlotte Sound, in the heart of New Zealand's stunning Marlborough Sounds, Furneaux Lodge is the first stop on the renowned Queen Charlotte Track. Looking out over the calm, clear waters of Endeavour Inlet, the Lodge is surrounded by 2000 acres of native virgin forest which has been unchanged since Captain Cook's first visit to the inlet in 1769.

Built in the early 1900's at the foot of it's namesake Mount Furneaux, Furneaux Lodge is set on 3 acres of the flattest and most picturesque scenery in the Marlborough Sounds. Part of the beauty of this historic destination is the isolation - no roads lead to Furneaux Lodge.

Here at the lodge the pace is easy and the atmosphere comfortable and relaxed. Explore the inlet kayaking, swimming, mountain biking and walking, or spend the day fishing, diving and dolphin watching.

Furneaux Lodge offers a range of accommodation depending on your requirements. Our recently built waterfront suites are contemporary one bedroom apartments, and are absolutely private with stunning views. The self-contained two bedroom chalets have panoramic views and are great for family groups and people hiking the Queen Charlotte Track. In combination with our award winning restaurant, it is the premier wedding venue in the Sounds and a popular location for conferences.

Relaxing and peaceful, the Lodge is family-owned and operated. Our attention to guests and passion for Furneaux and the Marlborough Sounds will ensure that your time here is enjoyable and memorable.
