We arrived on a flight to Queenstown Airport, picked up a car and drove the two hours to Te Anau. On arrival Jane warmly greeted us and we were shown to the Green Cottage with lovely views down to the lake. The cottage is so sweet, clean and beautifully presented. It was cosy especially when it poured with rain. At...

Of all the B and B's and hotels/motels we stayed at on our 2 and half month trip this was my favorite. The blue cottage was cute, cozy, warm and private. Jane and Ross were absolutely lovely and the views and land are beautiful and peaceful. Enjoyed walking the property with Jane and even got to feed a baby lamb....

I stayed 3 nights in the Blue Cottage. Words can't describe the experience of staying at the Croft. Jane and Ross are such lovely people and really make sure you are taken care of while here. Since each cottage is separate from the main house, you have utmost privacy. There is a microwave, sink and fridge in the unit. The...

Jane and Ross could not have been more friendly and accommodating. We stayed in the Green Cottage for two nights and have nothing to say other than it was a delightful experience. Good clean cottage, friendly and helpful hosts and of course the sheep just a few yards away. Highly recommend.

We booked the green cottage and were not disappointed. Being just 5 minutes from town it's an excellent base to explore the area. Breakfast is plentiful and is served in the main house next to the green cottage. Breakfast time is also a great moment to chat with the hosts Jane and Ross about life in NZ.

My partner and I loved our stay in the Blue cottage. We were impressed by the wonderful views, aesthetics of the cottage and very comfy bed. Also, the hosts are lovely and we thoroughly enjoyed their hospitality. The facilities are adequate (sink, microwave, fridge) given the yummy breakfast provided and plenty of places to eat in town. We do hope...

Thinking of the experience that we had in this wonderful place, make me want to go book and travel in there once more. We actually came a little late because we kept on stopping from Christchurch to Te Anau. Well, can't help it! Along the way are those majestic views that I can now see from my own eyes! When...

The Croft is a self contained cottage located on a farm. It's got a rural relaxed feel which is still very private. The cabin is very warm, cozy but also spacious with a comfortable sitting area and kitchenette. Breakfast options available are both a continental and cooked and served at a time of your choosing. If you like pets, there's...

The charming Blue Cottage (one of two) was our cozy home for 3 nights near the small town of Te Anau. We were welcomed by Jane, who made us feel right at home and was full of good information on hikes and other activities in the vicinity. The immaculate cottage has all the amenities, including a large, modern bathroom, very...

What a delightful setting for a cottage.......next to a sheep pasture, on a lake, with trees and gardens all around! Jane, the owner, was absolutely amazing with her hospitality. She has created an oasis of serenity with everything she's done to the Blue Cottage. The two nights spent there were among the best of our trip. If you're going to...
