Places like this are getting thin on the ground these days. In a world where so many skiing destinations are becoming more 'resort' and less about the skiing it is nice to still be able to find somewhere clean, comfortable, affordable with a nice relaxed atmosphere. On top of that, the owners were extremely helpful and went above beyond - from trying to organise a ride to ChCh (my fault for stuffing up my plans) to finding and mailing my Laptop charger to me o/seas. If you are looking for lodge style accomodation in Methven, I can't find a fault with Redwood Lodge. Thanks to Liz and Martin for the great stay.
