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.

    A real experience! Felt like we were staying in a real pioneer cottage but without the hard work, it was a comfortable stay. The scenery is beautiful and the cottage is cosy and felt remote while being a short drive to Masterton. Great getaway.
