This cosy cottage is nestled in native bush just 5 minutes walk from beautiful Lake Rotoiti, a favorite spot for sailing, fishing, swimming and other watersports. The cottage has a sunroom which looks out to the St Arnaud range close by, rising to 6.000 feet and the lounge a log burner for keeping snug. There is an abundance of short walks and tramps, some of which offer spectacular views. Close by is one of New Zealand’s ‘Land Islands’, being an area where intensive predator control has resulted in an abundance of birdlife.
For the more energised, the park offers a wide range of tramping experience, ranging from short day trips to expeditions of several days with ample alpine experience for those who want it.
There are mountain bike trails, a gliding club, a golf course, and hunting opportunities, all nearby.
Lake Rotoiti is close to Rainbow skifield, the Marlborough wine region, and Nelson. It is under 2 hours drive to the Picton ferry, and under three to Westport airport.
While we allow pets, please note that these are forbidden from the adjacent National Park. The cottage is ‘winterised’ from April to October, requiring tenants to follow a clearly documented list of instructions on arriving and leaving, for draining the water system. There is a well equipped shop in the village, a short walk away.

 great location next to lake, Visitors Centre and shop. the heating of the fire was awesome! 

 We loved our stay here. It was a real kiwi batch. The fire heated the place up quickly and the kids loved sitting around playing games. It has everything we needed for a comfortable stay. Thanks very much. 

 Spent two nights with my partner, our dog and a 1yr old. Caught the snow on the ground before it washed away, a very enjoyable stay. Plenty of room, nice and tidy bach loved the log burner. Short walk to cafe/shop and to the lake. Two thumbs up 

 So close to lake and visitor centre 

 Beautiful location and cosy cottage
