We stayed at Possum Lodge for two nights in February 2007. There are campervan parks and a backpacker dorm, and also three 60s style cottages. We stayed in one of the cottages and loved it. I think it was the best sleep I had for years, so quiet and the setting is perfect, right on Lake Manapouri. The cottages are fully self contained with all the cooking facilities, and were very clean. They were like a holiday house out of the 60s but actually I loved it. I booked direct with the owners and was so happy as it was booked out when we were there, as were most places we had stayed at around the South Island, so definitely pre-book before you travel. We went on the Doubtful Sound cruise which I highly recommend, better than the Milford Sound cruise I felt. The lake is lovely and take a swim while you are there, the beach is nearby and like most lakes in the South Island, the water is so clear.
