Welcome to Mainholm Country Lodge, an elegant and romantic, restored Victorian homestead located 10mins drive from Tapanui, in between Dunedin and Queenstown.

Mainholm was built as a grand family home in 1908 and now provides luxury boutique accommodation. In 1990, the property starred in a New Zealand feature film called 'The Returning'. In an area renowned for its breathtaking scenery, Mainholm Lodge is ideally located for exploring the best of the South.

I'm so pleased we booked to stay at Sandis. It was a truly Victorian period piece.

Sandi's and Graham's place is a like a step back into a Victorian era with all the charm and glamour but with all modern amenities . Perfect get away location, close to all Otago attractions. Sandi and Graham are perfect hosts for that special place.

Great space. Wondered if I had got lost, but then I hadn't. It was a lovely space. And enjoyed getting to know the dog.

I have been hosting guests at Mainholm with Graham since 2004. The whole house is made available for guests. We live in a separate apartment. We're available if needed - otherwise the space is all yours. I love to prepare fresh, tasty meals with good local ingredients…
Interaction with guests
