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!!

  • The house is full or character inside, and it feels like you...

    The house is full or character inside, and it feels like you have a home with lots on offer. Cy has laid out the home beautifully with lots of space and a cosy log fire. Thanks for having us to stay!

  • The place was just so great

    The place was just so great. I love Glenorchy but really had such a great time at c-wise cottage. Absolutely spotless, great bath, warm fire, well equiped kitchen, comfortable bed and quirky decor, spectacular mountain views, as well as many other things. The best part was the feeling of being home and being able to relax. The first day I was there I fell asleep in afternoon before I did anything else. Thank you Cy for a relaxing retreat
