2021-2022 Season - we are open and can't wait to see you all! The Lochmara Lodge team opened its doors on 22 September for the 2021-2022 season. Under new ownership, we are ready to continue the Lochmara legacy, build on it, and welcome all regular guests as well as our new guests. So make that booking and come and see why Lochmara Lodge is 'once discovered....and never forgotten'.

The Marlborough Storm of July 2021. When visiting us, some of our land has been damaged by the July 2021 storm and we have had to cordon those sections off. However, you can still walk the property and access the Queen Charlotte Track when it reopens. The accomodation, restaurant and animal buildings are unaffected and business as usual.
