Doug and Peggy Kolosoff purchased the 10.2 acre waterfront property in 1994. Doug's background as a logger and hoe operator allowed for all of the hands on work that needed to be done before the 132 kiwi vines could be planted in 1997, and before the 9,000 sq ft lodge was built in 2001. Inside the lodge has a beautiful personality all it's own of understated luxury, warmth and openness. This facility is a fabulous place for group retreats or whole lodge bookings.
