  • Cherished by 7 generations of the same family, the house portrays a slice of kiwi history.
  • Mature fruit and nut trees and attractive gardens give a sense of peace and privacy.
  • Park the car under the old walnut tree and walk to everything you need for a relaxing holiday.

More than just a bed for the night, Peekskill is full of history, colour, art, books, movies, games and toys. While the house is old, it is light, airy and spacious with all new appliances, beds and bedding so you can experience the best of both worlds.

The fully fenced section boasts inviting outdoor spaces - a formal Victorian garden full of roses and lavender, the established orchard where you can soak up the Central sun in privacy or dine al fresco under the shade of the old pear tree while the kids bounce on the ground level trampoline.

There is plenty of parking under the huge walnut trees at the back, where you can also play petanque.

Queenstown and Wanaka are only an hour's drive away and closer by are many other attractions eg vineyards, goldfields heritage, conservation parks, alpine meadows of the Old Man Range, mountain biking areas, the new bike trial down the Roxburgh Gorge, Lake Dunstan and the Highland Motorsport Park in Cromwell.

    I was expecting something special from Peekskill based on the photos and reviews but when I arrived at the cottage I was completely blown away. It's not only a visual feast but incredibly comfortable too; I was warmer in Central Otago in a 100+ year old cottage than I am in my modern house in Christchurch! All mod-cons & well equipped. Make sure you take time to go through the 'art file' giving you the provenance of art and furniture in the house - fascinating. Would love to stay again.

    Was an absolute pleasure staying at Peekskill Stonehouse. A really lovely authentic period home. Warm on cold wintery nights & uniquely appointed. Thanks ever so much for having us.
