Fodor's Expert Review Edgewater

54 Sargood Dr., Wanaka, Otago, 9305, New Zealand

On the lakefront in a quiet area away from town, this property is great for a longer stay in Wanaka. Some rooms are fully self-contained and there's a nice restaurant on-site, where the locals make a point of visiting on weekends for their house-made scones. If you take the walking trail to Wanaka township, you'll pass one of the most photographed trees in New Zealand, a solitary crooked, cracked willow growing out of the lake known as That Wanaka Tree.

PROS

  • washer/dryer in some rooms
  • only accommodation in Wanaka on the lakefront
  • spa and sauna

CONS

  • ½-hour walk from the middle of town
  • no air-conditioning
  • sprawling property
