About this Holiday House

Renovated two bedroom cottage in Arthurs Pass Village. Great views over the village and North up the valley. Easy access to popular walking tracks, village cafes and train station. Formerly called Woodsmoke, there is no fireplace. The bach has just been renovated with sliding door to the main bedroom, new double glazed windows in the lounge & bedrooms, double glazed sliding door onto a deck on the north side and new heat pump. The interior walls are polyurethaned plywood with a slight white wash. The double bed and fold-out double sofa bed are both new. Note that sheets, pillowcases towels etc are NOT provided. However, duvets are provided. Please be aware this is an authentic Arthurs Pass bach - a mountain cabin of about 42sqm. It is recommended for ascetic persons, looking for simple accommodation. The flush toilet is in an annex to the entrance porch. Woodsmoke is an ideal base for tramping, mountaineering or Coast to Coast race training. Short walk to cafes and Visitor Centre.

Nice location with a great view. Interior of the cottage is unique. The only downside is the outside toilet which needs attention and the fridge which is not working.
A charming little cottage, with basics all covered. The view is stunning, and the space cosy and private. The renovations make the space light and bright, and warm. Only downside is the tiny toilet outside. Would love to stay again.
This little cottage was just perfect! What I loved was that it is completely pared back and minimal - but in the best possible way. Everything you need and nothing you don't. It is a 5 minute walk to the Arthur's Pass Cafe for a morning coffee. Lots of close walks to choose and gorgeous scenery. Loved our stay.
