If you are inspired by old things and being cosy this cottage is the one. The cottage is well over 100 yrs old but has had some TLC to keep it alive, it is fully fenced with plenty of room for all to zoom around.

As with any old place there are quirks and oddities but lying in the big old bath looking outside is a must or giving cooking on the coal range a go. The toilet is an oldie but a goody even if it is a hop skip and a jump from the house,i'd advise bringing a torch!!! For the timid, it doesn't have a flush button!!!!!!

The cottage is fully self contained so all you need is your food, there is a wee general store, however the main grocery shops are 45kms away back in Queenstown!! There are times that fresh produce can be purchased from the property.

Everything in Glenorchy township is within walking distance, it is just a small place, quiet and surrounded by mountains but offers alot of activities for all ages. We have most things here, Pubs, cafes,playgrounds, horses,tramping,jet boats, "huntin and fishin", swimming pool or for the slightly mad "the lake", tennis courts and a nine hole golf course which just so happens to be right across the road as is the lovely "Boardwalk".

Strictly on request, there are Sheep,Ducks,Chooks,Alpaca's,a Donkey and a horse that you can feed or just spy on from a distance and on occasion you may be harrassed by a cat!

Please note# We are a 45 minute drive from Queenstown at the head of the lake.

Special conditions: Cost is $130 per night for two and $20 per person after that. Kids under 5 are free. For smokers, there's plenty of undercover space outside!!

  • This is one of the few places two couples could stay in...

    This is one of the few places two couples could stay in Glenorchy. The directions to get there were very good, and it is a place where you can walk from the property to most of town. Glenorchy is gorgeous. This place is one of a kind. An old and unique hedge surrounds fruit trees, artichokes taller than I am are out the kitchen window, and we even had a rainbow the morning we left. The cottage is good for what it is - a one of a kind old house.

  • What a wonderful find - our favourite accommodation on our trip

    What a wonderful find - our favourite accommodation on our trip. Cy had the fire going on arrival which was wonderful and so welcoming. Location is fabulous - nice to get away from the crazy pace of Queenstown. Thanks again for a fantastic stay - would love to come back and bring my girls with me next time.
