This is one of the most idyllic locations in Queenstown. This often-admired 2-bedroom cottage is now available for you to enjoy. With only the walking track separating you from access to the lake you couldn’t be closer to the waters edge.

This 1860 Stone Barn has been fully refurbished so that it retains its charm and character but with the comfort that you would expect from a property today.

A perfect getaway for a couple or family, this is a wonderful retreat - private grounds add to the stunning setting.

Summer or winter this cottage is ideal – enjoy swimming and bbq’s in the sun or get the skis ready for the mountains close by. The cottage is fully equipped for all seasons with water equipment ready to enjoy in the hotter months and a drying room for the ski gear in winter.

Cosy, yet light and airy this is one of the most desired and unique locations in Queenstown. With only a 5-minute drive to Arrowtown and 15 minutes to the heart of Queenstown you have the best of both worlds. The acclaimed Amisfield Winery and Bistro is only a 5-minute walk away too.

Coronet Peak base building is a comfortable 25 minutes drive whilst the Remarkables base building is slightly further at 40 minutes traveling.

If you enjoy walking, running or mountain biking then having the 8km track circling the lake right on your doorstep is an added bonus.

Special conditions: Minimum 3 Night Stay applies as per council regulations. 4 night minimum applies over ski season and 7 night minimum applies over Christmas and New Years A loft is available with a double mattress but this is only suitable for older children With proximity only 22 metres to the lake the frontage of the property is not fenced.

  • Far enough off the busy Lake Hayes road to not be bothered...

    Far enough off the busy Lake Hayes road to not be bothered by road noise. The Lake and walkway just a few metres away and the historic stone barn is very comfortable and well equipped. Justifiably awarded Bronze Best Setting Bach 2015. Free WiFi was great and everything needed for a great family holiday is provided. Location was key factor in our decision to stay at The Barn and we were not disappointed. Thank you for the use of The Barn.

    This was the second time we have stayed at The Barn and loved it just as much as the first time. It's as good in winter as in summer - maybe better because we had the fireplace! The location is fantastic and the place is exactly as it appears in the pics.

  • We loved our stay at the Barn at Lake Hayes

    We loved our stay at the Barn at Lake Hayes. It was 3 night stay in March as part of our honeymoon on the South Island. Brilliantly located close enough to Queenstown for all the activities etc. but in a quiet idyllic setting with stunning views over Lake Hayes. The Barn itself was amazing and beautiful presented with all the amenities you could want including WiFi, BBQ, laundry and a spacious kitchen. The rooms were lovely and we can't say enough about the setting. Hope to be back Dan/ Anna

    We had a wonderful time at the barn, gorgeous spot, the owner was really helpful and chilled out about late check-out. I would highly recomend this property.
