Welcome to "The Ark" a delightful Bed and Breakfast accommodation set in a wonderful 1890's homestead in the historic Otago gold mining town of Lawrence. We invite you to join us, your host Frieda Betman  for a relaxing break in a comfortable and charming setting.

"The Ark" is situated on the main road as you enter Lawrence and is home to retired florist, garden lover and past president of Interflora, Frieda Betman. The Ark is a Bed and Breakfast (B&B) and Homestay accommodation with character and charm. This home has had a remarkable history and is a fine example of a building by F. A. Miller one of Lawrence’s first builders.

The Ark has a cottage/florist garden with shrubs, trees and perennials. It is open to the public for a gold coin donation and its most colourful time is from November through to Autumn. A small selection of quality plants are available for sale.
