Tune in to the rhythms of nature, take time to watch the sun move across the sky, and feel your cares melt away in our lovingly restored cob cottage.
The cottage is perched on the banks
of the Waihopai River with views to
the mountains and across the station.
Built in the early 1900s when sheep were driven through to Molesworth and Hanmer, the cottage is a
blend of history, charm and offers traditional high country hospitality.The fascinating history of the cottage restoration is on Our Story page.
Relaxing is mandatory and made easy with separate sleeping and living spaces. The spacious bedroom offers a queen bed and four natural timber bunks. In the living area unwind in front of an open fire, or sit and enjoy the views of the mountains from the rear veranda. The front deck provides a perfect spot for breakfast in the morning sun. BBQ gas cooking is on the rear veranda.
The separate indoor bathroom is a luxury, and a short path from the deck leads to the heated outdoor shower on a ledge overlooking the river and our wonderful gas-fired hot baths, which are best enjoyed under the stars.
