Black Fern Lodge



Established in 1998, Blackfern Lodge is a family run business in the heart of Pureora

There is a direct well marked track from the main Timber Trail 35km marker, we’re about 6 kms to the Lodge, spa pool and dinner!

The Lodge comprises of 5 different en-suite rooms – ideal for couples, or groups – accommodating up to 12 people.  The perfect place to relax and unwind after a day’s cycling. Be pampered at Blackfern Beauty, enjoy a massage, soak in the hot tub / spa under the stars at the end of the day.  Stay a while longer and enjoy a full beauty or body treatment.

The Forge is situated a kilometre further downstream, and comprises of 4 en-suite bedrooms, ideal for families or large groups. The rustic charm of the converted woolshed will delight you.

Be amazed by our majestic waterfall, ‘whio’(native blue duck), native orchids, long fin eel, rainbow trout feeding, short tail bats, glow worms and exquisite bird life. This is accredited to the Park family, and their trapping programme of 15 years, and the conservation efforts of Blackfern Lodge.  A truly kiwi experience – unplug from technology and plug into nature!

We offer All-inclusive packages, to make your Timber Trail Adventure as easy and seamless as possible.  Enjoy our home-cooked meals, or self-cater – the choice is yours.
