There is nowhere quite like Arcadia Lodge Russell located in the Bay of Islands landmark and sitting in a magnificent position looking out over Russell's tranquil Matauwhi Bay. This historic gay Bay of Islands B&B, built in circa 1902, has been operating as Arcadia Lodge since mid 1920’s and is a boutique B&B style accommodation.

For many of our guests one of their greatest pleasures is to sit on the deck and drink in the 180 degree views of water, bush & yachts. We are just a stroll around the corner to NZ’s first historic capital town Russell. Accommodation comprises of three downstairs suites with private decks and amazing views. Matariki suite with two bedrooms bedrooms catering for up to four guests. Upstairs is a charming queen room with water views, or a super king bed with loft style ensuite.

For guests wanting more independence Arcadia Cottage sits beside the lodge with a relaxed feel providing a more self contained accommodation for up to four guests who want a longer vacation with optional breakfast by request.

The lodge is a large house furnished in a relaxed blend of traditional and contemporary furniture and features 100 year old, honey coloured kauri floorboards. A mixture of western, Pasifika and Maori artworks including a range of historical photos and wonderful snapshots from around New Zealand adorn the lodge creating a relaxing space in which to unwind and relax, and being a very large house has ample room for everyone. We offer a prejudice free accomodation and cater for all regardless.

Your hosts,Peter Gillan and Greg Hoover, live in a house on the property,, so Arcadia feels, very much like your home, we are close enough to be on hand yet we also give our guests space to relax.

On arrival, we can help to orientate you to Russell and we can book any trips and excursions based on your interests. For the most part you don't need to pre book excursions prior to your arrival as we will help you have a great kiwi experience.

We highly recommend you begin your day on the deck with our generous, healthy breakfast of northland fruit, compotes with home made muesli & yogurt. We serve a chef inspired Café style special each day with lovely fresh ingredients. We use locally produced breads, coffee, teas and pride ourselves by making delicious jams & preserves with fruit from our orchard.

Then head out from our gay Bay of Islands B&B to explore Russell's charming heritage village, and the amazing Bay of Islands beyond.

The pace in Russell is gentle and unhurried (rushing is illegal in Russell) and we look forward to welcoming you to our beautiful corner of the world as it is truly a special place.
