About us

Situated only 7km from the friendly township of Taumarunui, down the incredible Forgotten World Highway, lies Omaka Lodge, a boutique bed & breakfast venue in the heart of New Zealand’s Forgotten World. The short drive out from town follows the Whanganui River and is a beautiful scenic tour at any time of the year. At the end of a tree lined sealed driveway, you’ll find Omaka Lodge and its beautiful mature gardens. Well positioned on the crest of a hill, with magnificent views of Herlihy’s Bluff and Mount Hikurangi, this wonderful venue offers total privacy and seclusion. Situated amidst working farmland, the Lodge and expansive gardens are surrounded by the sights and sounds of everyday country life, where sheep and cattle dot rolling green-pastured hills and valleys that echo to the sound of never-ending birdsong.

A sparkling gem on the Forgotten Highway

Omaka Lodge offers absolutely everything a traveller needs, and more - a cosy fire, delicious evening meal, tranquil gardens and outstanding hosts, Scott and Chris. Thank you for looking after us so well.

Blown Away

We spent one night here before we did the Timber Trail and we just felt so incredibly spoiled by our hosts Chris and Scott. Nothing was too much trouble, they have such a knack of making you feel like you’re staying with family. The beds were warm and comfortable, bathroom impeccably clean, breakfast was delicious (served extra early so we wouldn’t have to rush to meet our shuttle). I loved Milly the dog too who was so friendly. This lodge is an absolute gem and a must stay for anyone passing through the area. Thank you again for making our stay so memorable and enjoyable!

Our time spent at Omaka Lodge felt like time spent with family. On arrival we were spoilt with delicious homemade cake and pots of tea. Gracious hosts Scott and Chris have a delightfully relaxed, yet attentive charm that doesn't smother ones privacy. Omaka Lodge is faultless.

Heavenly retreat

I could not rate this beautiful accomodation highly enough. From the moment we pulled into the drive I knew this place was out of this world and the photos don’t do it justice. The Omaka lads sure know how to make you feel at home. The only negative comment I have is we didn’t stay longer to enjoy a home cooked meal and soak up the atmosphere of this divine retreat . I plan to return and review again once the garden is in full bloom. I’m in awe of what these hosts have created. The cute animals just the icing on the cake. Oh and the quince cake upon arrival was so delicious not to mention the lovely conversation. I left feeling like I was part of the family and am homesick already .

An absolute slice of Paradise

My husband and I had the privilege of Staying at Omaka Lodge for 2 nights a couple of weeks ago. What an amazing home Scott and Chris have created and what fantastic hosts they both are. We were fortunate enough to be able to upgrade to the Loft. This little home away from home was an absolute delight with every little covered. The ensuite bathroom was simply incredible with his and hers basins and a twin shower, together with beautiful toiletries. Nothing was too much trouble for Scott and Chris and they went out of their way to make our stay exceptional. On arrival we were given home made cake straight out of the oven. We had the option of either eating in with other guests or dining out at one of the suggested restaurants, which were every bit as good as recommended. Breakfast consisted of a range of produce, many of which were produced from the farm itself. Home made muesli and bread and too many jams and other spreads to mention. For two days we lived like Kings. The only regret being that our stay wasn't longer. Omaka Lodge is truly a slice of paradise set amongst beautifully tended gardens. It truly is a tribute to the hard work put in by Scott and Chris and we would highly recommend Omaka Lodge to anyone wanting a place to stay with that wow factor. Thanks so much Scott and Chris for sharing your home with us. We were truly blessed. Cristine and Graeme …
