We stayed for 4 nights and loved the cottage. We are planning our next stay already! Sonja and Jim are such great hosts we instantly felt at home. Thanks for a great stay and see you again soon.
This is a good kiwi batch - clean and tidy - great location. The lake is close by, could launch the boat and moor it up nearby too, we were allowed to walk up onto the station, fishing in the canals was close by. We had a fantatstic 2 weeks holiday; kids loved it, we loved it and everyone came away well rested. And Jim, Sonya and Ellen were so helpful and hospitable. And bonus - there were 6 week old puppies there to play with too :))

Feedback from Neville Switalla, Canterbury High Country Fishing tours, "I operate as a Fishing Guide in the Canterbury and McKenzie Areas and often use Totara Peak Stations' cottage as a base for guiding my clients from. The cottage has 4 bedrooms with an assortment of double, single and bunk beds. It is well set up and comfortable with a lounge that has a good fire that warms the whole cottage up.The kitchen is well set up for cooking meals, with plenty of pots and pans, a clean oven and a slow cooker. It is nice to sit down with a home cooked meal after a day fishing, or if you don't feel like cooking Twizel township is 20 min drive away. The outlook from the Cottage is quintessential kiwi High Country Sheep station with the added bonus of a stunning lake only minutes away, and views of Mt Cook if you go for a walk. The hosts are always friendly and welcoming and the cottage while older is always immaculately clean. All my clients have enjoyed staying at Totara Peak Cottage. There is nothing better than sitting on the deck at the end of the day enjoying a nice cold beer, talking fishing stories, after having caught the fish of your dreams.
