Riverstone House bed and breakfast Geraldine is just a couple of minutes wander from some lovely bush walks and close to the Geraldine township (only 1.5km away). With cafés, restaurants, artists and boutique shops Geraldine is an ideal stop on the Southern Scenic route from CHC (Christchurch International Airport) to Tekapo. Rather than just passing through we recommend a stay in this delightful rural town.
We cater for a boutique clientele. Our guests are more than welcome to wander around our lovely lawn and garden setting which is filled with New Zealand Native Plants, Rhododendrons and other well established plantings. Our home is set well back from the road giving the feel of a quiet country retreat.
We had the oldest nursery in New Zealand until we decided on a life style change as our sons were not interested in continuing the family business. We specialised in growing Rhododendrons and Camellia, with a very strong interest in growing hostas, trilliums, maples, tree peonies and of late, lilies.
