About this Holiday House

Fully self contained accommodation. Enjoy a unique experience staying in the refurbished 1860's stone stables building, the original stopping place for travellers between Queenstown and Wanaka, part of one of the original homesteads on the Crown Terrace. This self contained accommodation is in the separate stone building on the property, with its own entrance and off street parking. The Stables is comprised of two adjoining stone and wood rooms. One room has a newly built kitchen, lounge and dining area with woodburner and laundry, smart TV and stereo. The other room is a large bedroom with king size bed, ensuite bathroom with round stone shower and double shower heads. The access between the rooms is external with just a few short steps between the doors. In front of the building is a private garden area with outside table and chairs and comfy couch. There is also a stand alone sauna in the garden to relax in after a busy day. The converted Stables are part of a 5 acre property surrounded by century old trees. It is a beautiful rural location with stunning 360 degree mountain and valley views, enjoying lots of sunshine hours and one of the best places to see the sunset. Arrowfarm is centrally located between 3 ski fields - Coronet Peak, The Remarkables and Cardrona. There are fantastic views of both Coronet Peak and The Remarkables ski fields from the property, as well as the view over the Wakatipu Basin and Arrowtown. Arrowfarm is on Crown Range Road, the main highway between Queenstown and Wanaka. Turn off State Highway 6 from Queenstown after Arrow Junction and it is just 2 kilometers up the 'zig-zags'. The small historic town of Arrowtown which is 7 kilometers away has lots of cafes, restaurants and bars plus a boutique movie theatre. There are also lots of walks and bike tracks. Queenstown is 20 kilometers away and the airport is a 15 minute drive. Other attractions close by are the wine growing area of Gibbston Valley, 3 golf courses at Arrowtown, Millbrook and The Hills, many walks and mountain bike tracks including Lake Hayes and the Queenstown Walking and Cycling Trail. It is a 15 minute drive to Cardrona Valley and 40 minutes drive to Wanaka. Or you can just relax in the lovely rural setting spending some time breaking up your trip as they did in the past.

A lovely weekend retreat in a beautiful setting. Host Kerryn was great and had everything in order for our arrival. The rooms were cosy, clean and had everything we needed. An easy hassle free booking. Thank you Kerryn.
Response from Owner
Thanks Theresa, glad you enjoyed your stay. Thank you for leaving the Stables nice and clean and tidy. It was a pleasure to host you.
My husband and I stayed here for two nights as part of a longer road trip around the South Island. This was easily the best placed we stayed. Hosts Kerryn and Hippi were a delight to deal with, helpful and very accommodating. Its a lovely little place to stay - great as a romantic retreat for couples. Warm, clean and beautifully decorated. We loved the shower! Only 10 mins drive down to Arrowtown so great as a base for exploring there, Cardrona, Wanaka or Queenstown. We'd definitely love to stay again some time.
We had an amazing three days at Crown Range Historic Stables. A perfect place to stay if you want to explore the Arrowtown/Queenstown/Cadrona area. Kerryn is a lovely host, makes you feel at home and then leaves you to it. Definitely worth a trip to the Cadrona Hotel for a meal and Arrowtown is very close. Definitely recommend and I'd love to go back one day :-)
