An absolutely beautiful farm stay with a gracious hostess who is a wealth of good information about the area. Highly recommended. We stayed in the cabin which was very comfy and with lovely views. Friendly dog and lovely white deer added to the attraction. Great place...would return again.

3 nights towards the end of our month in New Zealand. Has to be the wettest 3 days ever but we were snug as peas in a pod in our little cabin next to the deer,sheep and cows. Lyn and Lex were fab hosts and took us to find the new born fawn in the fields. Groomed the horse, adopted... More

The owners Lex and Lynn were really great and made us feel completely at home talking about their family, ours, where to go in the area, where best to eat, etc. We stayed in the cabin and as others have commented by today's standards it is a bit basic. But it was adequate and as was mentioned when we were... More

My husband and I stayed in the Cabin for 3 nights. The cabin is only basic but provides a lovely quiet spot to get away. The cabin consists of a kitchen/lounge room, a separate bedroom, and bathroom. It got quite cold and the kitchen is only simple, but it is neat and clean with blankets and heaters to rug up... More

At first we were sad that Rose’n’Reel’s cottage was booked on the days we wanted to go there. But Lyn offered us the queen bed garden room with own bathroom across the floor. We liked the quiet room. Lyn was so kind to arrange a Milford Sound trip for us on the next day. She recommended us to do the... More

We have just gotten back from a month long trip from NZ in Dec 2012. Of the many places that we have stayed in this was most enjoyable. We stayed at the cabin surrounded by the farm animals - Deer, Cow, Sheep, Horse. It is such a great feeling to wake up to the view of green paddock flanked by... More

We stayed in the cabin for two days and loved it. Our two-year old loved playing with the animals - the deer, horse, cow, dog, and cat - and it was really fun to have them all just outside of our cabin. The cabin was cute and comfortable and very clean. It was a bit small however and it was... More

We stayed in the cabin for 2 nights. Picked it on the basis it was a bit different from the sterile hotels found worldwide. Upon arrival, we received an extremely warm welcome from Lyn, Meg the dog and the various other animals. Lyn helped organise tours to Milford Sounds and the glow worm trips and was very helpful. The cabin... More

We arrived to a warm welcome by Lynn, Lex and their dog Meg. We stayed in the cute cottage that had a kitchenette. There was plenty of space for two people. The bedroom was nice and offered a queen bed. We enjoyed bringing dinner back and sitting at the picnic table out front of the cottage and watching the animals.... More
