There’s no other B&B in the Bay of Islands quite like Arcadia Lodge. The house, built c1904, sits in a magnificent position overlooking Russell’s tranquil Matauwhi Bay and now combines its original charm and character with fresh, contemporary styling, luxurious accommodation, delicious food and glorious views. For many of our guests one of their delights is simply to sit and drink in the 180° panorama of water, bush and yachts. Two spacious suites and a studio room, all with water views and private decks, are on the ground-floor; two charming rooms, one double with a magnificent bay vista and the other a super-king room are upstairs. The house is furnished in a blend of the traditional and contemporary with English and American Arts and Crafts furniture on 100 year old kauri floorboards. A mix of western and Pasifika art adds to the house’s warm, comfortable feel, creating a relaxing space in which to unwind.
Start your day on the deck with our generous, healthy breakfast: fresh juice and Northland fruit, home made muesli, organic yoghurt, our own jams and preserves made from fruit from our garden, organic coffee and teas, followed by a delicious café-style cooked special. Then head out to explore Russell’s charming heritage village and the gorgeous bay and islands.
