Special Amenities

The Chalet is set on the same High Country farm that also hosts the famous Washpen Falls Adventure Walk... This is a 2 hour loop track offering majestic scenery. You'll go through lush native bush to a volcanic canyon reserve, experience picturesque views across the Canterbury Plains and see sparkling spring-fed creeks and stunning waterfalls. The chalet is located at the very beginning / carpark of the Washpen Falls Adventure Walk & next to the walkway toilets. The walkway could potentially be busy during public holidays / weekends.

Special Attractions and Activities Nearby

The Chalet is well situated to explore all the local region has to offer. Windwhistle is the gateway to the Lake Coleridge Back Country with numerous lakes, walkways, hunting and fishing, horse trekking , scenic drives , heliskiing, mountain biking, jet boating on the famous Rakaia River or play golf at one of the popular courses. Keen skiers will love the fact it's just a 15 minute drive to the Mt Hutt Ski Field access road. A number of other ski fields are also in the region including Mt Olympus , Craigburn , Temple Basin , Porter Heights , Mt Cheeseman and Broken River. We are a one hour drive from Christchurch International Airport and located just off the popular scenic route heading down South to Lake Tekapo, Queenstown making this the perfect Canterbury stop off. It's a good idea to stock up on groceries , although if you want a break from cooking you are spoilt for choice with a variety of dining options in Methven , or treat yourself to breakfast, lunch or dinner at Terrace Downs Resort just a short 10 minute drive.

Great fireplace, my wife & I really enjoyed our stay. Very tastefully decorated.

A group of 3 of us visited Washpen Falls on our way to Kaikora looking for a quiet place to spend a few nights before beginning our road trip. We arrived at the cottage and were blown away by the scenic view from the garden. Our host Megan was great too! The Washpen falls trail is right on your doorstep, with entrance to the trail a few steps from from the back door. We will definitly be returning , Would highly recommend!

We had a wonderful stay and thoroughly enjoyed the Washpen Falls walk. Loved waking each day to listen to birds, watch the rabbits, sheep and cows. Appreciated the luxury linen and towels. Easy to keep warm with the fire.
