Sue was great and quick to respond - house was spotless and warm when we arrived - very well equipped kitchen and good amenities - have a 1 yr old and a 3 yr old who loved the farm tour - close to tekapo but far enough away that you have a bit of space - all in all highly reccomend!
Wonderful place in an excellent location
This is a very special place. Lovely old farmhouse with a very well-equipped kitchen. Close to Lake Tekapu, easy drive for day trip to Mt. Cook. Comfortable, peaceful. It does get chilly at night so bring warm clothes. Using the bed heater before we went to bed, and the quilts provided while we slept made for a great night sleep. Great place to see the stars too. Owner was very helpful. I’d return in a heartbeat.
Thank you for your excellent review, loved being able to accommodate you for your trip in NZ. Autumn is a beautiful time to see the MacKenzie, but the nights can be chilly as we head into winter period. Recommend lighting the fire, and drawing the curtains at sun down, and keeping the heat pump running at all times. And of course closing all the windows, and rooms not being used. We love our beautiful 'almost' 100 year old homestead, and love sharing it with our guests, and want to ensure they have a cosy stay.
Lovely place to stay. Great host. Easy access to Tekapo. Would stay again.
This renovated 1924 house is delightful
This renovated 1924 house is delightful. Spacious, light and clean. Well stocked kitchen for cooking and eating. Plenty of room for our own food and belongings. Freezer packs and a freezer bag to use for picnics. We enjoyed a fire in the living room on three nights with the well stocked wood and kindling. The dark skies were fabulous for star viewing. It's well located for touring in the area and close enough to town for grocery shopping. I'd happily stay there again.
Lovely rural and farm experience
Our stay at Sawdon Station was even better than expected. Very relaxing and peaceful surroundings. The house was beautifully and thoughtfully furnished and well set up with everything we needed, including a great kitchen to cook in. We felt at home from the time we arrived. Regular and prompt communication with Sue our host helped us feel especially welcomed. Would highly recommend to other families.
Location is quiet and "out of town" but not by very far

Suits us just fine being in the countryside.
The house was well equipped and most comfortable to stay in.
