The Black Barn

4 guests · 2 bedrooms · 2 baths
Relax, chill out, and savor the seclusion at this natural oasis, tucked away in the heart of a verdant vineyard. Exposed stone, distressed timber beams, and dark hardwood floors alongside tasteful décor lend a rustic charm to the interior. Grab a pair of mountain bikes and head out for a smooth cycle through a nearby winery—of course, bringing home a bottle of the region’s most flavorful Merlot.
An antler-crafted chandelier creates a focal point in the dining area, dangling from the vaulted ceiling. French doors open onto the terrace where your eyes can feast on snow-capped mountains, river valleys, and flat grasslands. The property is dotted with almond, olive, and citrus trees; the gentle breeze picks up their unique aromas and floats them through the air. Due to the lodge’s slight elevation, the backyard vista stretches straight across to the picturesque province of Hawke’s Bay. The open-concept kitchen ensures seamless entertaining; depending on the time of year you visit, enjoy fresh artichokes, figs, and more from the garden. 
In the summertime, stroll through several acres of sprawling vines to reach the Black Barn Market on Saturday mornings. The historic, tree-fringed village of Havelock North is mere minutes away. Discover golden shorelines, golf courses, and local shops in Hastings. Guided fishing trips to some of New Zealand’s most plentiful waterways can be arranged. In the evening, settle onto the living room’s plump sofas in front of the roaring rock fireplace. The outdoor verandah is a serene spot to watch the sunset.
