Escape the winter blues this year with a 3 night getaway at the stunning Donkey Bay Inn in Russell, Bay of Islands.
Operatic, artistic, iconoclast, sensual and enigmatic are just some of the words that have been used to describe The Donkey Bay Inn. As you enter through the intriguing garden tunnel and come out into the inn’s private courtyard, we are sure you’ll find your own words for the unique and wonderful world of Donkey Bay.
Fully energy sufficient and cooled under a huge living roof, this architectural masterpiece will truly take your breath away with its cavernous rooms, imaginative angles and breath-taking views at every turn.
Enjoy a half day privately guided Russell Wine Escape with Rogue Pony, visiting cellar doors at three of Russell’s vineyards (including winery lunch and tasting at Marsden Estate) allowing you to taste their award winning wines and experience the Bay of Islands while being driven through the fabulous countryside, farmland and historic settlements.
Spend the remainder of your time relaxing and rejuvenating on your balcony looking out to the sea, in Donkey Bay Inn’s library or their beautifully appointed sitting room and bar.
