Getting around

It is best to travel in Southland by a car/hired vehicle. Many of the most scenic spots are off the main roads and difficult to enjoy by public transport. A public bus can get you to Lumsden but your touring options are very limited unless you have a vehicle. The Oreti River is a short walk from the house and the local shops are only a 5 minute walk away but other fantastic places are a 10, 20, 30 or 40 minute drive away.

Interaction with guest

The house is managed by a House Manager who lives nearby. She will organise keys and is available to answer any questions about how to use appliances or about the town and region. The house is only rented to one party whether the booking needs 1 bedroom or all 4. The manager and owner are happy to answer questions about activities in the area especially about trout fishing, walking, cycling or sight-seeing. Fishing rods are not available at the house but can be purchased for a very reasonable cost at least 2 shops in Lumsden. Rods and waders can also be hired at the local fly fishing shop.

Very Good

“Met all our needs”

Reviewed 15 Mar 2015

House is clean and comfortable and has all the necessary extras to guarantee a wonderful stay. The location is very quiet.

Owner's reply: The double glazed windows combined with the insulation and underground power guarantee that the house will be quiet! Perfect for resting after a long day out on the many rivers. Thank-you for your review and we hope to see you back next year!

“A warm and comforable house that makes you feel at home”

Reviewed 18 Apr 2014

My wife and I stayed at the Rod and Wheel House in January 2014 for one week. The house is newly renovated with a marvelous ambience. It has four well appointed bedrooms, an open plan kitchen, dining and living room with a pot belly stove which keeps the house wonderfully warm at night. This delivers a relaxing atmosphere, which goes well with a bottle of NZ Pinot Noir - just what we like after a day's fishing! The excellent sound system, large screen TV and free Wi-Fi all add to the comforts of home. This was our third trip back to Lumsden and equal to the best to date. We did some excellent fly fishing in the local rivers over most of the week - it is true trout heaven, with the many creeks and rivers full of magnificent trout. My wife caught a 2 pound and then a 3 pound trout which added to the wonderful memories. We would highly recommend Rod and Wheel House as offering superb value for money. We definitely plan to return back to Rod and Wheel House in the not to distant future. Richard and Heather Phillips

Owner's reply: Thank-you for your very kind review. We receive many complimentary comments from our guests about our very comfortable house. We have tried very hard to fill it with high quality beds and linen, top range kitchen items and plush furniture. We know the trout fishing is fantastic and hope to see you back again soon to tackle the 3-4 pounders in the Mataura followed by the 6-8 pounders in the upper Oreti!
