The Lake House was definitely the highlight! My husband and I were travelling with our daughters, so we had booked the entire house. We fell in love with the house itself - modern, comfy, clean, warm with personal touches throughout. The hot tub was a huge success (and there are robes provided for your added comfort). Breakfast was beautifully presented... More

I had already fallen in love with this place when I saw it online and made the booking but being there in reality was even better.. I wished that I could have stayed longer. I was lucky enough to have the place all to myself. My hosts were amazing and had the house all nicely warmed up with the fire... More

Loved our stay here in March: quiet, secluded, comfortable + great breakfast! Fabulous location and a real treat after backpacking/camping on the nearby tramping tracks. Also drove round head of lake to sister property Kinloch Lodge for some great veggie dinners on a couple of evenings. Only downsides: bed a bit soft and stay a bit expensive - but worth... More

I arrived after dark so the next morning was a wonderful surprise with the house and the lake just across the field. Goodies in the fridge for me and an extremely comfortable bed were just what the doctor ordered. I explored the area and came back to a cozy house each evening. Kind, discreet hosts and calm surroundings made for... More

Very nice room with a wonderful view. The breakfast was great as well. Glenorchy is definitely a small town, but the views are fantastic and it had a very quaint and charming feel. If you go, staying at the lakehouse is a must do. Very charming and relaxing. I hope to go back one day and stay here again.

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights in Feb. It was definitely the nicest place we stayed on our month long honeymoon. I am so glad that I booked us for 3 nights and not just one as so many do. I thought it was a bit pricey when I booked, but really felt the value as we... More

My husband and I had the pleasure of staying here on the last 2 nights of our honeymoon. We couldn't have found a better place! We rented the entire house and were so happy we did. The house is appointed with wonderful touches including a heated tile floor in the master bathroom, soaking tub, cozy fireplace in the dining/kitchen area,... More

From the moment I walked in I knew this place was special. Beautiful appointments, modern facilities, fridge filled with treats, and a warm and welcoming staff. Across the park is Lake Wakatipu and the Glenorchy Wharf. Walk next door to the Glenorchy Trading Post if you prefer that special coffee. Very comfortable beds in a quiet community. In the morning...

What a beautiful location and house. I had it all to myself and I was spoilt staying here. The breakfast spread was delicious and generous, the room and bathroom were luxurious, comfortable and spacious and the living area homely and inviting. I didn't want to leave the lake house and I hope to come back soon.
