Snow Denn Lodge

Private Lodge and Backpackers

The Snow Denn Lodge Story

We've loved every minute of our journey so far


Situated in front of the Southern Alps, Snow Denn Lodge is Methven's premier lodge, boasting superior facilities with a range of accommodation options to suit all budgets and requirements. With the Great Outdoors and amazing scenic views right on your doorstep, it makes for a popular holiday destination all year round.

In May 2018 Laura and Tim took over Snow Denn Lodge. Plenty of inspiration and a new, fresh vibe has be brought to Snow Denn Lodge, which is slowly being updated and rejuvenated. 
With a passion for all things outdoors and participating in nearly every  activity that Methven & Mt Hutt have to offer these two are the people you want to talk to about things to see and do in the area. 


Happy Guests

During the Winter we have had some amazing guests stay with us and enjoy the beautiful Winter we have had up Mt Hutt. We look forward to sharing the Summer with many more guests who wish to make the most of Methven's stunning walks, hikes and Mountain Bike trails. 

Methven's Summer Attractions

If you haven't experienced Methven and Mt Hutt in Summer you missing out. With our outstanding Down Hill and Cross Country Mountain bike tracks which have been developed up Mt Hutt there's not better place to be. Along with this we have some of the most beautiful clear blue lakes which host an abundance of fish. And some of New Zealand's best walks can be found here along with the Te Arora trail sidling along the side of Mt Hutt.

Bike Hire and Golf club Hire

Everyone loves free stuff, especially when your travelling on a budget. We understand that here at Snow Denn, so If you want to go for a gentle bike ride around Methven township or check out our local Methven walkway which takes you around the whole of Methven, then pop into reception and talk to us about hiring our bikes. Or maybe you would like to have a round of golf, we have golf clubs for hire to.
