A rare example of the archetypal Kiwi crib or bach. Whilst recent maintenance and improvements have been done, it still proudly keeps its joinery, fixtures and fittings exactly the same as when the building was built in the 1930's. Literally oozing with character, it will transport you back to the holidays of your childhood. Relax and enjoy! Approx 7 minutes walk to Lake Rotoiti and approx 6 minutes walk to St. Arnaud Village Store. Also only 3 minutes walk to DOC visitor centre

  • Nicely tucked away

    Nicely tucked away. Loved the lounge space - perfect for all spreading out and chilling during the day

  • A blast from the past

    A blast from the past. Some fascinating features to this old style bach. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Bed was very comfortable, all the facilities we needed, and good place to relax after our orienteering events. Suggest ceiling in lounge needs fixing before winter/bad weather.

    Great location, well equipped with a great vibe! My only thoughts for improvement would be to re-line the ceiling and it would be 10x warmer!! We love the place though and will defo be back :)

  • It's in a fabulous location that's for sure

    It's in a fabulous location that's for sure. And it has a wonderful fireplace and main big room. But it could really do with a clean. And it wouldn't hurt to have some soap in the bathroom. The bedding is old and tired too :(

    We loved this old-school bach complete with log fire, and board games - felt like a return to the holidays of our childhoods. Central location and a great place to hide away in Nelson Lakes
