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!!

    Love the beautiful C Wise cottage. Such a comfortable and pleasant place to stay, surrounded by the most wonderful garden that is so much fun to explore. A perfect base for discovering the picturesque surrounds of Glenorchy or even visiting Queenstown.
