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.

    Central location with an easy walk to the lake or the shop. Genuine character Bach/ Crib that was warm and comfortable during our summer stay. Great family fun and value for money.
