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.

  • Great old school Bach

    Great old school Bach. Loved our stay. Was really cool to be able to bring my dog on holiday too. The fire kept us warm and toasty.

    If you are looking for everything new, shiny and modern then this is probably not for you but if you are after a cosy (log fire) quirky, comfortable, time-honoured Kiwi Bach this is the place for you. The bach is well equiped with everything you need to cook a good meal, relax with friends and play a game or read a good book.

    The cottage is perfect! Great location, handy to all that St Arnaud and Nelson Lakes has to offer. The fire and gas hot water made the cold rainy weather a lot more acceptable, and I look forward to returning soon!

    Lovely wee bach. The fire did a nice job of keeping it warm. Great to have a place that we could take the dog.
