The buried coin...

Eagle Ridge Country Estate was built in 2000 by an American entrepreneur with a dream to create magical memories for couples getting married, a space for people to celebrate milestone occasions and a luxury venue for people desiring unique corporate event experiences.

Standing on the immaculate front lawn of the Lodge in 2006, Nigel and Deborah Herbert proclaimed the property would one day be theirs; going as far as planting a coin in the soil of The Mauo Lawn, knowing they would be back to collect it one day.

In early 2016, ten years on from this promise, their dreams became a reality as they purchased the luxury Tauranga retreat. A tour through the beautiful grounds of Eagle Ridge Country Estate with Nigel and Deborah gives a sense of their warm and welcoming hospitality; guests can be assured they are in a special place that is well-loved and cared for.


“Eagle Ridge has such a charm, you’d be forgiven for thinking you’d been magically whisked away to the Tuscan countryside”
