After reading all the reviews I felt that it would be a crime to skip staying here. The review by Rachel G was probably the warmest review I have ever read. We came to Te Anau for two nights but Dusky Ridges could accommodate us on only one of the nights. I still grabbed it and we stayed the second...

Win and Henrick made us feel comfortable from the start! Win was bringing freshly baked bread to the cottage when we arrived so we knew it would be a great stay. Our 'apartment' was well appointed and the breakfast she set out for us was delicious. Henrik had homemade venison sausage in the fridge so we grilled that for dinner...

Our group of seven (my husband and I, our two toddlers, and our senior parents) stayed in both the Apartment and Garden Chalet for three nights at Dusky Ridges. The experience was just perfect. Upon arrival, we were greeted by Win, who gave us a tour of our lovely accommodations, brought toys for our kids to play with, and explained...

We stayed in the Garden Chalet at Dusky Ridges and it was a beautiful place with a huge king size bed, comfortable chairs to sit in and watch the ever changing view of the mountains. Huge shower room too. It has a kitchen with everything you need to cook the terrific breakfast of venison sausages, bacon and home laid eggs....

I have stayed here for 2 nights. The host definitely tops the list for being the friendliest host i have ever met. The room is mega comfortable and cosy. Surrounding by the lovely and effable sheeps, deers and rabbits on the farm made me excited and feeling grateful. This was an awesome experience and thanks for everything well prepared by...

We stayed for 3 nights, and wished we could have stayed longer. Winn and Henrik were incredibly gracious, helpful and friendly. The guest unit is a standalone structure, fully equipped with a cooktop, oven, clothes washer, dish washer and gas barbecue. Just based on the quality of the accommodations this would be an easy 5 star B&B. But there is...

An amazing property with brilliant views, the best hosts you could hope to find. We stayed here for a couple of nights in the 2 bedroom cottage and were made to feel very welcome. The animals are engaging and it was wonderful to see a 17 year old act like he was 3 when surrounded by the friendly menagerie. My...

I'm not one for gushing reviews but the superlatives are all true. We are cynical, fussy, frequent travellers so I was a bit skeptical about all the 5 star reviews. However Win and Henrik have created an extraordinary retreat in beautiful country. Quality linens, stylish modern furnishings and all required amenities. The fridge was very well stocked with homemade venison...

We loved this place! The view is stunning. My husband, 9-year old daughter and I stayed for two nights and wish we had stayed longer. We stayed in the smaller Chalet, with a cot. It was the perfect size for us. My daughter loved the sheep, alpacas and deer. We got a great tour of the paddock from Henrick. We...

1. Lodging: We loved our stay here in the apartment - very peaceful, serene, and restorative. Natural light permeates the residence from generous Windows and skylights (perfect for star-gazing while cozy in bed!) The space is beautifully decorated in calming shades of cream, gray and white. Beds are firm and luxurious, and there are various nooks and crannies with plush...
