Description

This cosy cottage is nestled in native bush just 5 minutes walk from beautiful Lake Rotoiti, a favorite spot for sailing, fishing, swimming and other watersports. The cottage has a sunroom which looks out to the St Arnaud range close by, rising to 6.000 feet and the lounge a log burner for keeping snug. There is an abundance of short walks and tramps, some of which offer spectacular views. Close by is one of New Zealand’s ‘Land Islands’, being an area where intensive predator control has resulted in an abundance of birdlife.

For the more energised, the park offers a wide range of tramping experience, ranging from short day trips to expeditions of several days with ample alpine experience for those who want it.

There are mountain bike trails, a gliding club, a golf course, and hunting opportunities, all nearby.

Lake Rotoiti is close to Rainbow skifield, the Marlborough wine region, and Nelson. It is under 2 hours drive to the Picton ferry, and under three to Westport airport.

While we allow pets, please note that these are forbidden from the adjacent National Park. The cottage is ‘winterised’ from April to October, requiring guests to follow a clearly documented list of instructions on arriving and leaving, for draining the water system. There is a well equipped shop in the village, a short walk away.

Special conditions: Prices indicated are per night (for two adults). Children aged 15 or under - no cost. Added charge of $10.00 for each extra person aged 16 or over. 15% discount on stays of 5 nights or more. Smoking outside only.

  • The cottage was comfortable and cosy and near to the township

    The cottage was comfortable and cosy and near to the township. It was easy to get to all the walks we wanted to do. It was lovely to come back to hot showers and a comfortable bed after our walks. We loved the area.

    We loved the cottage for a number of reasons. We'd definitely go back again. We are already talking about it! Location to lake and jetty is perfect. Very comfortable and warm. Thank you very much. Will recommend to others.

    A place that has clearly given a family and many visitors a lot of pleasure. It was nice to stay in a homely home.

  • Cottage is really near to the lake...

    Cottage is really near to the lake. Maybe 1 min drive , 5 to 7min walking, 400m from the I-information centre. Cottage is very classic and has nice old features. It is filled with memories and character. All you need is there but the washing machine is at the camping by the lake-. We used it following David's instructions. it was very easy. You just have to sit by the lake and enjoy the scenery while waiting.
