    Arrowtown still retains its character with such majestic mountains. The cottage could not have been any better for our honeymoon, simply superb. Comfortable, spacious, peaceful.

  • Fantastic location - rural working farm with good views

    Fantastic location - rural working farm with good views. 5 minutes to Arrowtown or Lake Hayes / 20 minutes to center of Queenstown. Very well equipped and comfortable accommodation. Kids loved feeding the chickens. Best I have found in Queenstown area.

    The house is between two family dwellings, so not for guests who want to be in an isolated rural setting. The house is about 1km from Lake Hayes on a hillside with mountain views, and only a short drive to Arrowtown. The garden is delightful.
