Owen River Lodge is located 90 minutes south of Nelson, 20 minutes north of Murchison. This location places us right in the middle of the greatest brown trout fishery in the world.
Our location provides our guests with panoramic views which are simply breath-taking, encompassing the Owen River, the beauty of Kahurangi national park and the majesty of Mount Owen.
We offer stylish, understated accommodation located right on the banks of the Owen River.
To ensure their absolute privacy, guests are accommodated in one of six purpose built guest cottage suites which are located in the gardens, a short stroll from the main lodge.
Each guest cottage suite has its own veranda, allowing guests to sit outside and drink in the stunning scenery, whilst listening to the sound of the river below.
