Blending the finest of superb modern comfort and its historical pedigree, this perfectly-situated majestic original 1800s Queenstown cottage is a home-away-from-home to dream of. The comfortable, lovingly restored interior uses the rich lustre of timber to showcase its heritage roots throughout creating warmth and charm that will delight any guest. Three well-apportioned bedrooms will ensure a most comfortable stay. To experience the pure luxury of relaxation, gather in one of the generous living spaces or enjoy snuggling up in front of the roaring, schist-surrounded open fire. Entertaining and cooking is a pleasure thanks to unhindered panoramas of Lake Wakatipu and her sentinel mountain from the well-appointed kitchen and dining areas.

The delectable, securely fenced gardens are something very special, and a rarity in this location. From the moment you enter the property you will be encapsulated by the superb privacy, sweeping lawns and classic rose bushes, when in bloom, provide heavenly aroma. The various outdoor spaces will tempt guests into dining alfresco to immerse into the ambience of Queenstown. The grounds also play host to a cosy sleepout, a fun way to accommodate children or cater to extra guests.

The house is good


The scenery is very good, the kitchen is also very good, there is a room not in the house, the house is in the Queenstown, very convenient place, the kitchen tools are also convenient to use, the landlord reply is more patient.

The cottage was warm, clean, well stocked and charming. Location perfect. The view was worth the climb up the hill (we chose to leave the car behind). The kids loved the fully fenced garden. Couldn't be faulted. We plan to return in Winter when we have an excuse to light the log fire. Our only negative about this would be that our trip was too short!
