Wasn't sure what to expect but couldn't have imagined anything better! Stunning setting nestled amongst bush with beautiful views over the harbour. Very restful and not a bad walk down to tbe township. Our room was clean and well appointed room with own deck. Definitely be going back.

We had our final night in Akaroa at Mt Vernon Lodge after finishing the Banks track. It was the perfect location to end the trip. The cabin was perfect - stunning grounds, large rooms and balcony, great kitchen and good BBQ. The cabin was spacious and spotless. Mt Vernon is at the base of the trails so an ideal place if you are into walking. The grounds are stunning. The owners are lovely people and obviously have a lot of pride in the lodge. Best spot in Akaroa

Been more than 20 years since we first stayed here. At that time the lodge was superb for our (limited) budget. Mt Vernon upgraded since then - now it is tourist quality with multiple options. Great wedding venue. We stayed in Harbourview unit which was v private and totally self contained. Sonia & Dave welcoming hosts. Thanks

We stayed in the harbour view unit and it was exactly what you see in the pictures. A real fabulous view from your own private deck with your own bbq. We chose to have most of our meals there because we were the only ones staying in the whole place being a Sunday and Monday night so why not enjoy the birdsong and view as much as we could. Managers were away but a lovely lady was there to meet us. My only requests would be outdoor cushions for the wooden chairs and some type of shade over part of the deck for those who aren't sun lovers. We also just got in in time for the end of the winter getaway deal so great value for money

My wife surprised me with a night away in Akaroa for my birthday and what a fantatsic place this is. Although a distance from the township this is a great place to relax and be surrounded by bush and birds. The accommodation is a great standard and well miantained. We would recommend this to anyone who wants to relax in an amazing environment
