Well summer is just around the corner.  We're already enjoying longer, sunnier days in Wanaka.  The gardens have been flourishing during spring and we're looking forward to a spectacular summer.

Wanaka No 1

Wanaka was featured on the top of the list for 5 Must Try attractions in New Zealand by the International Business Times Travel section.  It was skiing and snowboarding that catapulted us to No 1 (not that we were surprised though!).    Our nearby glacier at Franz Josef was also on the list.  To read more on this and New Zealand's other top attractions click here.

Edgewater's Changing Menu

The Wineglass Cafe and the Terrace are ideal spots to appreciate the summer days and twilight evenings.  We change our menu every season.  Presently guests are enjoying the spring menu but in only a few weeks our new summer menu will take centre stage.   Although we freshening up the menu, to reflect the best seasonal produce,  our popular baked-to-order scones remain steadfastly on the menu!  If you haven't tried our lemon and poppy seed, or dark chocolate orange scones, perhaps this summer is ocassion to try them out for yourself.

Wedding Bliss at Edgewater

We enjoy the wedding season at Edgewater.  This spring and right through the summer we'll be sharing the special day of many brides and grooms and their guests.  Edgewater's location and amenities give the bridal party a complete solution; from the ceremony through to photos, function and guest accommodation - all in the one location.

Charlie and Jess were married at Edgewater in October.  Here is what they had to say:-

"As we were arranging our special day from overseas, it was important for us to pick a location and venue that offered the full package. Edgewater delivered on this and more. Sarah made the planning process so easy and was always responsive. Gaynor was a star in the lead up and on the day itself, so many of our guests commented on how fabulous she was."  Read on here.
