Special Attractions and Activities Nearby

Arrowtown offers a central base for the year round traveller to explore all that the beautiful Central Otago region has to offer. Arrowtown is just 15 minutes drive from bustling Queenstown with its huge array of activities and attractions & 50 minutes from Wanaka which has the famous Puzzling World and another beautiful lake. Idyllic Lake Hayes - perfect for swimming, picnics & boating - is just 10 minutes away. Arrowtown itself is quiet & quaint with a rich gold mining history. The beautiful Arrow River flows through the town, a great swimming spot in summer, and there are pans in the cottage so you can also try to find yourselves a gold nugget or two! There are many boutique shops, cafés and restaurants and also the wonderful Dorothy Brown's cinema (get yourselves a glass of Pinot and a cheese platter and settle down for the evening!) Golf, Wineries, walking & cycling tracks (part of the Wakatipu Cycle Trail) complete the picture for the summer (cycle hire available in Arrowtown) with the three ski fields (Coronet Peak, Remarkables & Cardrona) at your door step for the winter.

Jack’s cottage was delightful! I don’t think the photos do it justice. It is a beautifully rebuilt cottage. Everything is top quality including the provision of a coffee machine. We will be back.

Amazing beautiful place.
We stayed here for 4 nights (4 adults, 2 children aged 3.5yrs and 6yrs and a baby 11 months) House is in a excellent location in Arrowtown, easy flat max 5 minute walk (walking with kids yand a pram so took a bit longer!) House was clean and well presented, spacious enough for everyone and was great having two bathrooms, one with a shower over bath which was perfect for the kids. Lovely sitting outside by the private BBQ area. Safe for the older kids, and not to much a crawling baby could get into - we just moved some things up higher. You can shut the hall door to the bedrooms, so once the kids are asleep you can enjoy quiet time in the lounge/dining/kitchen area without them hearing to much noise. Owner Liz is helpful and easy to communicate with, would defiantly recommend. We will be back!
Response from Owner
Thank you for these lovely comments, Lisa. It was a pleasure having you to stay in the cottage and I do hope you'll be back again one day. Thanks also for leaving the house spic and span with not a sticky fingerprint in sight - not sure how you managed that with three wee kids in tow!
