Millhills Lodge a tranquil retreat, winter escape and respite care Oasis

Millhills Lodge is a private retreat nestled in a beautiful farmland setting. It is the perfect place to come and relax, escape or have attentive respite care by owners Penny Williams and Sam Jackman.

Sam and Penny built the Lodge just three years ago in the wonderful Hawkes Bay and have turned this exclusive facility into the perfect setting to come and relax and unwind from the stressful day to day living in those bustling cities or a home-away-from-home for people re-couperating from major operations.

Millhills Lodge has three self contained upmarket chalets for you to stretch out in and the Lodge itself boasts your own private room, dining and lounge setting, a place to entertain guests in the courtyard or in the Lodge itself.

The inner courtyard, with open fire and garden spaces, also provides an inner sanctum to personally unwind or entertain guests for lunch or pre-dinner drinks.

Millhills prides itself on a reputation of excellence - it hosts weddings, corporate events, private dining facilities and Penny is a chef in her own right.

She works her magic in the kitchen, cooking up the finest feasts, with her own vegetable garden and choosing the best cut meats from Hawkes Bay producers, whilst Sam is the perfect host ensuring all your needs are met with the ease and grace of the best maitre d of any of New Zealand’s top restaurants.

The guest dining room can comfortably accommodate 14 seated guests or arrangements can be made to dine either within the courtyard with roaring log fire if you prefer.
Most dinner functions are prepared by accomplished chef Penny, who can provide you with your own sumptuous dining experiences, tailored to your palate. Millhills also offers the services of a number of local caterers depending on numbers and individual requirements.
Penny and Sam have fantastic testimonials from international guests who come to hide away from the stresses of life. They work in with other tourism operators to make your stay the best it can be.

Whether you enjoy fishing, duck shooting, dinner parties, beach excursions or picnic lunches it can all be catered for by the folk at Millhills Lodge.

Their winter escape rates are affordable and inviting with the spa pool heated at the right temperature to soak in, while watching the stars and sipping on a glass of Hawkes Bay’s finest.

Millhills Lodge is just a short drive into Havelock North Village where the ladies can shop and dine at the Villages restaurants and the men can have a pint or three while people watching.

Your hosts can also arrange airport pick-ups from Napier airport and are ready and waiting to serve your every need.
