Description

Experience the romance of life a hundred years ago in our little pioneer cottage.

Just 8km from Masterton, the cottage sits overlooking our private lagoon and the workings of our sheep and beef farm. In summer the lagoon dries up but there are still the 360 degree views of the mountains, hills and Wairarapa plains.

Built entirely of recycled materials the cottage is now home to many precious heirlooms gifted by family and friends, beginning with its beautiful stain glass front door.

No television or microwave but you have the convenience of a gas hob and latterns.

The cottage is very cosy and warmed in winter by a little pot belly. The flush loo and the bath under the stars are both one step off the deck.

The icebox will cool your wine for a drink on the verandah and if you don't wish to cook dinner on your night away then it's a short drive into town where there is a rich array of restaurants.

Upon deposit I will email you an information sheet with driving directions.

Two night stays are preferred but a single night can be booked for $150.

Special conditions: Smoking allowed outside only.

  • Loved the atmosphere and the cottage

    Loved the atmosphere and the cottage. Waking in the morning to a coffee and relaxing in the bath outside before starting our day amazing. Although giggles my partner was looking for the non-existent hidden TV, it did him well to relax without technology! :-D

  • A very unique pioneering cottage experience

    A very unique pioneering cottage experience. Loved the outside bath and loo. Gorgeous outlook and all the small details like pot belly stove, old fashioned toaster kept it authentic. Especially loved the book selection: Tales of pioneering NZ women. I learned so much!
