About Us

Russell and Margery, our Burmese cat (Chilli), and Miniature Poodle (Louie) are delighted to share our fantastic location with you and welcome you into our home in the forest.

We are located in mature native beech forest in the village of St Arnaud, just 600 metres from Lake Rotoiti in Nelson Lakes National Park. In keeping with our magnificent native bush-covered mountains, St Arnaud House is a solid eco-timber Fraemohs building, which blends into the magnificent Nelson Lakes alpine environment. St Arnaud House provides the perfect place to relax and unwind and explore the alpine wilderness of Nelson lakes National Park.

We are committed to the environment  through the implementation of conservation initiatives in energy, waste and water, and are active participants with "Friends of Rotoiti" conservation group.
