Take a step back in time

Allandale Lodge was originally built in c.1911 to serve the local community as a school, before being used as a Home Guard during World War II. The building then served as a community hall for many years afterwards.

Your hosts welcome you

Shaun & Briar

Originally from Tauranga, we both knew we would eventually move to the South Island – it was just a matter of what town and what to do.

We initially visited the Mackenzie Country while on holiday in early 2019, and it's fair to say that we instantly fell in love with the region. With its breath-taking views, close-knit communities and endless activities, Mackenzie Country was where we wanted to be.

Later in the year, we made the move to Allandale Lodge near Fairlie. The history and character of the lodge had us both in awe from the first time we viewed it. Originally an old schoolhouse built c.1911, it's since been converted into a bed and breakfast where up to 4 guests can stay. Situated in a rural setting, overlooking nearby mountains, Allandale Lodge provides a place to relax and unwind.

We welcome you to Allandale Lodge Bed & Breakfast and look forward to sharing our slice of New Zealand's paradise with you during your stay.
