Mount Maude Country Lodge is owned and managed by John and Trish Cossens.

Trish is a registered nurse with a lifetime of nursing experience and an avid long distance runner. She also has a strong interest in fashion and design and when time permits likes to draw and paint.

John has some twenty five years in tertiary education and marketing. He also is a lifetime runner, has completed many marathons and other multi sport events. Having spent most of his life in and around Central Otago, John knows the area intimately and still regularly gets out into the mountains hunting, fishing and exploring.

Together they have raised three fantastic children – Timothy, Oliver and Charlotte and provide a warm, down to earth and friendly environment for guests to enjoy at Mount Maude.
