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.

    We had a great stay at Camelback Cottage! A tidy, well put together accommodation with everything you need. Martha was extremely helpful with directions, instructions and communications. We really enjoyed our time in the country.

  • Cottage is beautiful, comfortable and charming

    Cottage is beautiful, comfortable and charming. Very welcoming. The deck and garden are lovely and it was delightful to pick rasberries and eat plums straight from the tree. We had a lovely relaxing time and we had everything we could have wished for and more. View of the mountains gorgeous. Thank you.
