Great attention to detail

Lovely little cottage between Wanaka and Queenstown. Don’t let the outside picture fool you. It’s rustic and the only heating is by a fireplace but the attention to detail is fabulous. Everything you could ever need is looked after. The kitchen is well equipped including a dishwasher and washer/drier. Most importantly the beds are super comfortable. We really appreciated the flannel sheets! Also be sure to check out the Cardrona Hotel across the street for dinner.

Great location

Extremely comfortable & cosy base for our family of 5. Short drive up the mountain for skiing and close to Wanaka. Would definitely stay here again.
