We have stayed a number of times over the last 3 years. Quiet with fantastic views this is a place to rest and relax. Charming hosts and a short ride into Te Anau and the lakes make this a unique and lovely place to stay.
We had 3 enjoyable nights here in the first week of March 2016. This secluded cabin is clean and well equiped. The toilet was a pleasure to use :-) The queen bed is specially made to have two single mattresses side by side. They are excellent quality mattresses but there is no getting away that there is a joining ridge in the middle. I would recommend this accommodation.
I stayed, and fed the deer that came to the front door, very central to everything, I did day trips to Milford, Doubtful and the Kepler. Loved it.Basic, and fun to go Little house on the Prairie style.
