‘The Crib’ is a 'retro' cottage with character and views out to the Pisa Range.

It is a great place for games, laughter, good company, food, and generally relaxing and unwinding. The large flat sectionhas space for parking, kayaks, paddling pools and playing cricket. The mature trees and orchard provide privacy and shade in summer.

The cottage in 1947 began as two army huts and has grown over the years. The original character has been retained and new ceiling insulation and a pellet burner now keep everyone warm in winter. An annex off the deck has a bedroom and ensuite facilities. Together the two dwellings provide separate spaces for adults and family, great for a quiet read and siesta in summer. The old garage serves as a safe storage area for golf clubs, bikes and play equipment.

The Lake Dunstan swimming area is less than five minute’s walk at the end of the road. You can walk or cycle in either direction around the shore for an hour or two. Golfers will find the 9th hole across the road. The indoor swimming pool, gym, supermarket and town centre are 10 - 15 minutes walk in the other direction.

Cromwell is a well-resourced small town situated centrally in a sunny basin between Wanaka, Queenstown and Alexandra. The area has outstanding vineyards, a local farmer’s market, olive producers, and summer fruits. Picking cherries is one of our favourite summer activities. We bottle our own apricots, nectarines and peaches. Cromwell is close to the Rail Trail and there are a lot of other great cycle trails being set up around the region.

  • Great location in Cromwell, very central

    Great location in Cromwell, very central. The place was dry and warm, very easy to heat. Very nice private back yard area to relax. I particularly enjoyed the outdoor bath!

  • Perfect location for a Central Otago stay, accessible to everything

    Perfect location for a Central Otago stay, accessible to everything. The crib had incredible character and everything for a family, from puzzles to books to a well stocked kitchen. Having a bathroom in the sleepout for the teens was terrific, loved the Formica table and vinyl chairs, felt completely at home. We will be back!
