Back by popular demand, Otahuna Lodge is welcoming a limited number of visitors to celebrate Mother's Day in style.
Treat your mother to an indulgent tea with delicious canapés and a glass of sparkling wine. Tea will be enjoyed in the historic surrounds of Otahuna's Ballroom, with its vaulted ceiling and roaring, open fire. Following the tea service, Lodge owners Hall Cannon and Miles Refo will offer a tour of the interior of the Victorian homestead, highlighting the history of the estate and the remarkable people for whom it was built -- Sir Heaton and Lady Jessie Rhodes. The tour will also showcase the celebrated architecture and interior design of this iconic Canterbury building and many of its public rooms.
Guests are welcome to conclude their visit with a self-guided tour of Otahuna's renowned, century-old gardens.
The rate of $95 per person includes a selection of sweet and savoury canapés, tea or coffee, 1 glass of sparkling wine and the guided tour.
