My wife and I spent two nights in the small but perfectly formed Blue Cottage in February while we were touring the South island. This really is a little gem of a place with views to die for from your private deck across the fields and lake to mountains beyond..heaven! Jane is the perfect host. On our way to Te... More

We stayed in the Green cottage several years ago on our trip to Milford Sound. Lovely surroundings and perfect access to Milford Sound. The cottage was quiet and lovely with everything you need. Will stay here again.

Great location, restful, quiet and on a farm. Jane, the proprietor, is a wonderful soul who provided a nice breakfast, clean, cozy cottages amid a small farm with a lake and mountain view. We came to love her playful kitten, Penny, and met her bottle-fed lamb, "Molly," who, although grown now, has a lasting attachment to Jane. It was one... More

Jane and Ross run a wonderful place. It's the perfect mix between farm stay, B&B, boutique hotel, motel. We stayed in the blue cottage that has it's own private porch with view of the sheep, mountain and lake with a fantastic sunset to go with it. The cottage itself is quite spacious, comes with all mod cons and has a... More

We have just returned from a 3 night stay in the green cottage and it was beautiful. This charming cottage is beautifully appointed and decorated and sits in the lovely gardens overlooking lake Te Anau and the mountains. Jane and Ross are so lovely, we so enjoyed our chats with Jane who was so hospitable and made us so welcome... More

We spent a delightful three nights here and could happily have stayed longer. With only two full days to explore the area and so much to choose from it was a huge help that Jane gave us great suggestions and a detailed map for the drive to Milford Sound - how to avoid the buses, which boat to take on...

Jane is the best hostess we have ever encountered. The cottage was wonderful, spacious, clean, well equipped and very comfortable. Jane made sure that everything was alright, and I miss the breakfast conversations we had with her while we were there. The Croft is located near Te Anau and pick up for tours can be arranged (with certain operators). From... More

Jane made us very welcome when we arrived and the cottage was absolutely beautiful - everything that you could want and extremely cosy. The view was fantastic, fields of sheep and then across to the lake and mountains beyond. We stayed for 2 nights and drove the Milford Highway to the Sound. An amazing experience!

These comfy cottages were purpose built to serve as a B&B. Although located near the road to Milford Sound (just outside of town), there was no issue with "road noise" after the sun went down as the traffic died down as well. The self contained cottages provide the facilities for a bit of cooking if desired as well as some... More

The cottages are gorgeous and very comfortable. Jane was a wonderful host - so very welcoming and helpful. Milford Sound is an easy 1.5 drive from Te Anau and is definitely worth a visit. We will definitely be back!!
