For our long term southern guests who want a home base for winter we do negotiate a special price not advertised in our usual tariff.



Current Tariff at the lodge

For long term guests we do negotiate an applicable tariff. Unfortunatley we are unable to accomodate pets of long term guests. There are  some really great boarding kennels close by that Im sure would be able to assist.

For a more detailed break down view tariff page.

Unfortunatley at this time there are no guides available to take charter trips. We do have a local gentleman, Mark , who is prepared to impart his knowledge as to what is happening at the Lake in relation to how to fish for our local barra, and where.
