Your Hosts Donna & Annie.

Hosts Donna Soler and Annie Duncan set up their lodge to provide Middlemarch accommodation to enable them to share their love and passion for Central Otago.

An avid historian and travel guide, Donna can make your tour informative as well as enjoyable.  A former travel agent, Donna can look after all your bookings and other travel arrangements, including flights and transfers.

A keen cyclist for the last 15 years, Annie has done almost every trail in the South Island and many in the North.  Her passion for feeling the wind in her face and being in the landscape (not just looking at it) has driven her to put her energy into this venture.
