The Cherries have arrived!

At last, after a long wait, the Cherries have arrived! No, not guests, but the new season of cherries from the local area growers. This means summer is here!

Maple Lodge Wanaka is fortunate to be on the doorstep of New Zealand’s fabulous fruit growing region. We have just seen winter through with a huge variety of apples such as Braeburn and Jazz. And porridge always tastes divine when made with the poaching liquid from winter pears.

But, it is the summer and autumn fruits which are our favourites. Maple Lodge Wanaka guests are treated to an array of fresh strawberries, raspberries, apricots, nectarines, greengages, plums and of course cherries. And, when everything is plentiful supply we make jam to see us through the other months of the year.

Why not book your next stay at  Maple Lodge Wanaka and enjoy our gourmet a la carte breakfast featuring local fruit and homemade jams.
