About Mt Lyford
Any season, any time.
In winter, it’s a base for snow sport enthusiasts who come to conquer the slopes of Mt Lyford. Or it offers a hideaway for the ones that enjoy the romantic setting of a cabin in the snow.
Other times of the year Mt Lyford is the holiday destination for you if you are looking for a quiet environment, clean air, no distractions, just to be away from the hustle and bustle. Christchurch is just under 2 hrs away which makes it an ideal weekend getaway.
Mt Lyford is the perfect spot if you’re seeking some peace and quiet. Enjoy the view of the mountains from your comfortable chalet and walk through the hills in the delightfully fresh mountain air. Some lodges come with a hot tub, an ideal way to relax. The night sky here is fantastic and unspoilt by light pollution, so evenings outside bring this place to life. Book a private sauna to increase the wellness experience to even higher levels.
With all chalets hidden in native bush the birdlife is amazing to hear and watch. The dawn chorus is an experience in itself. If you want to add some activities, the choice of walking, hiking, mountain biking, hunting and fishing attracts people to this hidden gem. For the children we offer a big jungle gym playground to let of some steam.
