It was great to meet you and hopefully you can come back and see us soon.

The Bay of Islands was our first stop during our five weeks in New Zealand, and we couldn’t have wished for anything better than Arcadia Lodge in Russell to make us feel pampered, relaxed and ready for the adventure ahead.
It is a truly beautiful...More

Hi Lindley and Don, just spotted your booking for next summer - welcome back to Russell. Off the top of my head I know the time line back 3 owners ago which is only to the 80s but if you let me know your grandparents' name I can find out more. Going back from us the owners names were Carlsson, before them Heays & Bosanquet, before them Shatwell (his name but not sure if his wife had the same name) but they ran it as a very successful back packers. Lots of people in town would be able to give me the info if I can give the name. Otherwise I need to dig out the title deeds. Cheers, David
