With mountain views on three sides, the cottage is 22 km from Hokitika on the road to the stunning Hokitika Gorge. It was built in the 1950's for the farmer's father on a small terrace to keep it high and dry. Beautiful original wooden floors throughout complement the rustic and eclectic decor. Modern renovations are in character and great beds assure a comfortable sleep. The covered deck was built to the sun and allows all weather outdoor living. On a clear night, stars fill the sky. Farm machinery, cows, milk tankers, and cars heading to the Gorge are seen occasionally. The Hokitika Gorge Scenic Reserve is 10 minutes away as is the character filled Kokatahi pub and cafe. Lake Kaniere with hiking and swimming is 20 minutes away. Off the main tourist trail, Camelback Cottage is a great place to relax and unwind.

  • Fabulous place to stay

    Fabulous place to stay. Really well appointed, perfectly clean, warm and comfortable. The location was great for us, a beautiful country setting so very peaceful but not too far from town. As a family and with friends, we have stayed in many baches around the NZ - this was among, if not, the best so far.

    Great cottage in a beautiful location, surrounded by mountains and only a short drive to the gorge. The cottage is very well equipped, warm and a great deck to relax on. I would highly recommend..
