Large house, suitable for 2 families

 Great location with an awesome view! 

Lake views and bushwalks

 Great, cosy 'bach' situated off the beaten track. Lovely views with a quirky and comfortable interior. Ideal for activities around Lake Brunner but also for exploring the West Coast. Highly recommended. 

Our  Brunner retreat on the Terrace

 Fabulous location, lots of room and everything you need for a great stay. Not to mention the million dollar views - we will be back! 


 We loved this place. Such a fabulous space with everything you could need - great shower, well equipped kitchen etc etc. The lake down the road is beautiful and only a short walk. This area of the west coast is amazing. Totally recommend. The host is great and very helpful too. 

Lake views and bushwalks

Lake View  Cottage at Mitchells

 We had a wonderful stay at Lake Brunner Cottage. With serene Lake and bush views, it was the perfect place for a relax and some R&R away from city life. The cottage is very clean, well-equipped with comfortable beds and a nice deck at the front for sitting in the sunshine. The Mitchells area of Lake Brunner is the favoured location for us, and we intend to return again soon - loved every minute! Thank you.
