Inverlair Lodge is well suited to the needs of rail trail bikers and walkers as well as a perfect setting for wedding anniversaries, family reunions, corporate functions and conferences. Or those wishing to explore the Ida Valley / Maniototo districts. Purpose designed and built Inverlair Lodge is right on the trail at Oturehua (and conveniently close to the historic Golden Progress Mine, Gilchrist's Store and Hayes Engineering ). 

Accommodation for up to 16 is in 4 standard and 2 family rooms all with ensuite.  The ingenious open-plan design of the dining and lounge provides ample space for groups to get together while allowing privacy for other guests. Outside Spa Pool & BBQ Facilities.

To make the most of the north facing elevated site and those famous long Central Otago summer days, wide-opening doors create a wonderful indoor-outdoor flow. The views across the Ida Valley to the table-top Hawkdun Range are truly spectacular, further adding to reasons to make yours a more than one night stay at Inverlair Lodge. Should temperatures drop there's plenty of heating including a centre island fire in the lounge.
