Pioneer Cottage

Max Guests

About this Holiday House

Built entirely of recycled materials, the cottage is now home to many precious heirlooms gifted by family and friends, beginning with its beautiful stain glass front door. No television or microwave but you have the convenience of a gas hob and the old lights work on solar. The cottage is very cosy and warmed in winter by a little pot belly. The flush loo and the bath under the stars are only steps from the deck. The icebox will cool your wine for a drink on the varandah and if you don't wish to cook dinner on your night away then it's a short drive into town where there is a rich array of restaurants. In summer the lagoon dries up but there are still the 360 degree views of the mountains, hills and Wairarapa plains.

Very cute place to stay and chill out..very cosy potbelly, and nice outdoor areas. Hubbie burned himself 3 times on the first day but soon learnt the pioneer ways..of using a cloth when handling hot kettles. Would highly recommend for those who can do without mod cons, and enjoy peace and quiet.

All the effort and dreaming has paid off, you have recreated the past beautifully .We had so much fun it was a true adventure and I can't wait to come back. Love it! nice spot for quality time.

Thoroughly enjoyed the peace and quiet, not even a rooster. Spot on place and right on the money with the pioneer theme, it reminded us of what we don't need. Great bath!
