Scotty and his lovely wife Leya, own property ON the Mangles River bank, and have built “River Haven Lodge” to accommodate those with the same passion for fly fishing.
We’ve built a private bar on the property just steps from your cabin, in the main Lodge, for you to enjoy a cold beer or some of New Zealand’s finest wines and be able to "walk" home.
River Haven Lodge is "All Inclusive", from your gear, cabin, all meals, right down to house wine and beer! Enjoy your meals with other fly fishing anglers, socializing with other Lodge guests, and share your day’s fly fishing experience during great dinner conversation.
Want a memorable fly fishing experience? We at River Haven Lodge believe that we have the best accommodation and Guides, in the most central location of any lodge within a 100 mile radius! Whether you're fishing with Scott "The Trout" or one of his experienced team of guides, River Haven Lodge is confident you will not be disappointed!
Wonder over to the "Engine Room" (River Haven's Private Bar) only steps from your log cabin and enjoy your favourite cocktail or an ice cold beer! Perhaps you prefer some of our brilliant New Zealand and Aussie wines. You'll enjoy the great conversation and tall tales from your angler mates. The brown trout mounts in the Bar, will get you excited for your next day's fishing, and the "Wall of Fame" will entertain you, as you check out other angler's prizes, or giggle at your last year's pose!
Don't forget your camera and be certain to give Leya a "fishy" photo of your favourite fish of the day, to join the others on the "Wall of Fame"!
Enjoy your holiday without the worry of driving back to your lodgings! Our lighted pathway will lead the way to your personal log cabin.
Parking: No worries, private, secure off-road parking is provided, including wheelchair access.
Transfers: River Haven Lodge can also arrange airport transfers as well. Please make arrangements in advance when you place your reservations. Send a copy of your itinerary prior to departure, so we can ensure your flight is arriving on time and be there to drive you to your exciting holiday in a private comfortable vehicle, not a bumpy bus!
Start your day with our brilliant home-made bread and local honey, fresh free range eggs from our own chickens on site, and fresh fruit every morning. Then off fishing with your picnic lunch, sandwiches made from home-made bread, and plenty of snacks to keep you going throughout the day! Return back to the lodge for some fun bar nibbles, including home-made gourmet pizza's, nachos, smoked salmon, and more! Finally, relax during the wonderful three course dinners, with friends and a good glass of wine...or two!
