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.

  • Loved the real Kiwi Bach feel

    Loved the real Kiwi Bach feel. All that comfort and character but with lovely shower, and other mod cons as well. Everything we needed. Was great having our two little dogs with us as well.

  • Fabulous location just round the corner from Lake Rotoiti

    Fabulous location just round the corner from Lake Rotoiti. If you want an authentic bach experience, this is the property. Lovely hot shower and fab log burner which was truly needed after getting caught mountain biking at Teetotal in torrential rain! A big plus for us was being able to have our dog there.
