OMAKA LODGE – Interior

Omaka Lodge is a large country home designed by renowned New Zealand architect, the late Jack Cantlon, one of the founders of what is now Chapple Architecture. Designed to be a family home and the main homestead for a sheep and beef station of over 5,000 acres, Omaka Lodge was built in 1977-78, largely from native Rimu timber that was milled on the surrounding station. Jack Cantlon was well ahead of his time in many respects, and Omaka Lodge has an interior that is beautiful and timeless, whilst also offering different spaces to suit a variety of needs.

For those who wish to stay in our bed and breakfast, we have accommodation in the form of a luxurious self-contained loft apartment, four guest bedrooms, and three campervan sites.  Each guest bedroom features signature Jack Cantlon design, including bespoke joinery, vaulted ceilings, and, in three of the four rooms, a large walk-in-wardrobe.

As well as guest bedrooms, Omaka Lodge has two rooms that are ideal for boutique luncheons or corporate meetings for up to 10 people. The stunning formal dining room features a large antique oak table that seats 10, and looks out to the courtyard and gardens beyond. Adjoining the formal dining room is our beautiful formal living room that features a spectacular vaulted beamed ceiling, another signature Cantlon design, and offers restful garden views and direct access to the deck and courtyard. Both rooms are air-conditioned, and the formal living room also features an open fire. A spacious and private guest toilet opens off the adjacent entrance hall.
