Dianne and Tony brought Inverlair Lodge after having sold their farm in the Ida Valley where they had been since 2005. Previous to moving to the Ida Valley they had farmed in the Teviot Valley area. Tony has always been a farmer and they have both been born and raised in the Central Otago area. They have raised 3 sons and now have 9 delightful grandchildren to spoil. After selling their farm they decided they wanted to stay in the area but to have a change of lifestyle. Tony is still doing casual farm work on local farms and Dianne is running the lodge.
They both get involved in community events and are always there to help at the annual Brass Monkey Rally at Queens Birthday weekend, which is the main fundraiser for the community. Dianne and Tony both enjoy meeting people and are looking forward to this new challenge in their lives and are at present building a new residence on the same property as the Lodge, so they will be hands on at all times.
They welcome you to their accommodation in Oturehua and hope your stay is an enjoyable experience
