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!!

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.

  • This cottage is a diamond in the rough

    This cottage is a diamond in the rough. It has its quirks and that’s what makes the experience. It’s cosy as hell and has everything you need for the perfect getaway . From the outside it looks like something from Footrot Flats but on the inside it’s huge and warmly decked out with wooden beams and leather couches. Loads of board games , big tv with DVD’s and the best fireplace that heats the whole house. There’s a heater as well in case you really wanna crank it. We absolutely LOVED its charm.!

  • This is not a property that we feel actually requires a star...

    This is not a property that we feel actually requires a star rating as it's too unique to fit within the standard boring parameters, but as it's required for our commentary to be accepted, we have given proudly given it a 5 stars ,as we loved this Bach!!! We felt so at at home here. It was perfect, very clean, warm and cosy and so lovely and private. Wished we could have stayed longer.

  • Amazing place! Totally recommended if you are after a "hippie style" house

    Amazing place! Totally recommended if you are after a "hippie style" house. Beautiful surroundings, cool and old style house, but very warm and comfortable inside. Great movie selection, games, and fire place, the only bad thing is to not have toilet inside, can be a "bit" cold outside now on winter hahahaha but everything else, is great. Owner is very friendly and helpful if you wanna find more what to do in the area :) Looking forward to go there again!
