My fiance and I have been to Glenaire Cottages twice, and we absolutely love it. We plan to go back every year! The cottages are spotlessly clean and well equipped with everything you could need. They have log walls and real wood fireplaces, and are surrounded by beautiful forest, it makes you feel like you really are in a cosy... More

Spent the grand final long weekend at The Lake cottage and Glenaire with my partner and had a fantastic time. The cottage had everything we needed for a wonderful weekend including a spa bath on the deck and a wood fire enclosed burner inside. The couches looked new, the table had a crisp white cloth and the kitchen came with... More

We stayed in The Cove with our greyhound Fri-Sun. Loved this place! Clean, cozy, and private. Great views from rooms, lounge and outside deck with spa. Everything we needed (and more) was available to set ourselves up for the weekend in a "log cabin in the woods" - dog had the best time chilling in front of the fire, pet... More

We only stayed for two nights on a little impromptu trip and couldn't have been more happy with our stay.

The cottages are great. They are very well appointed and comfortable. Although there are four cottages in a row they have been designed to gain maximum privacy. This is a beautiful part of the World, the views are lovely and the forest so peaceful. The road is closer to the cottages than I would have expected, but I didn't really... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Inspired by nature, Glenaire Cottages are designed to offer a restful sanctuary, superb views and a taste of relaxed country living in a breathtakingly beautiful and peaceful setting. In winter, sit in front of a crackling log fire and watch the wild storms roll in across the Southern Ocean. In summer sit on the balcony, sip a refreshing ale, watch the birds, take in the fresh air and bask in the immense beauty of it all. We offer a choice of four spa cottages. All have outstanding ocean views, log fires and your comfort and privacy in mind. We are pet friendly and provide firewood, fresh flowers, romantic candles, all linen and can cater to your whims by arrangement. Satellite television, DVD, stereo, a covered veranda, undercover parking, gas BBQ and pet friendly yards are all included.
