Welcome to the Pickled Pigeon Cottage built in 1881 and named after the New Zealand Bird of the Year, the Wood Pigeon. The birds are known to eat red berries which intoxicate them and literally gets them pickled! We have two resident Wood Pigeons who visit regularly in the front of the garden. The cottage is also pet friendly and we are happy to lodge small to medium dogs in the Doghouse , a room attached to the back of the cottage. The backyard is fenced and dogs can roam about freely. The cottage has 3 bedrooms, kitchen, dining room, lounge room, decking , BBQ area and outdoor decking area to have sundowners and view the beautiful garden and scenery. The cottage is an easy 200 metre walk to cafes, restaurants, supermarket, Museum and other shops of interest. Try a tasty chocolate treat from the Lawrence Mint or coffee at 26 on Ross or maybe lunch or dinner at Gabriels Cafe or the Pub. There are lots of things to do in and around Lawrence. It was the first Gold Rush town in New Zealand and walking around Gabriels Gully is a great way to get the sense of history here. There is a great gold course and of course fishing, nature walks and biking the Great Otago Trail is a must. The cottage is ideally located for day trips to Wanaka, Queenstown and the historical township of Clyde. The cottage is 145 dollars a night for two with additional people another 20 dollars. A cleaning fee of 30 dollars is added at the end of your stay. We offer discounts for longer stays of a week and midweek discounts for seniors.
Great wee 3 bedroom cottage close to cafes, restaurants and the great outdoors.

Gorgeous house for a restful weekend away from the city
Thanks so much for providing a comfortable homely place to spend the weekend. Well appointed and the decor and facilities were just perfect. Loved the historical references to Lawrence and NZ. Handy to town for the nice eateries but equally wanted to spend as much time relaxing in the lounge, dining or kitchen area and the weather allowed us to enjoy the peaceful deck and shaded reading spot!! Absolutely loved it and will recommend to friends. Cheers for the treats too!
