The charming Blue Cottage (one of two) was our cozy home for 3 nights near the small town of Te Anau. We were welcomed by Jane, who made us feel right at home and was full of good information on hikes and other activities in the vicinity. The immaculate cottage has all the amenities, including a large, modern bathroom, very... More

What a delightful setting for a cottage.......next to a sheep pasture, on a lake, with trees and gardens all around! Jane, the owner, was absolutely amazing with her hospitality. She has created an oasis of serenity with everything she's done to the Blue Cottage. The two nights spent there were among the best of our trip. If you're going to... More

If you are looking for a lovely bed and breakfast to stay in Te Anau look no further, stay at the Croft Bed and Breakfast. Jane is such a lovely host. The Blue Cottage is newly build, pristine bedding with a comfortable sitting area. The surrounding area just simply puts you at ease as you look out your window drinking... More

We stayed in 14 different places during our 3-week trip to New Zealand, but we both agreed that, of all of them, this was our favorite. See that photo up there of the green cottage? That was where we stayed, and it felt so homey it felt like our own. Jane, our host, was just outstanding, a down-to-earth, genuine woman... More

We stayed one night in the Green Cottage, went on an overnight cruise of Doubtful Sound, and returned for three more nights in the Blue Cottage. Immaculately clean and tastefully decorated, the cottages look out across the grazing sheep in the pasture to the lake and mountains beyond. It was a pleasure to drink a glass of wine on the...

The Blue Cottage, one of two self contained units, is a total delight. It is set facing a lovely view across to the mountains around the lake in the distance and this view can be enjoyed from the verandah, the bed or the sitting area. It is also great for star gazing. The interior is attractively and comfortably furnished with... More

We stayed at The Croft for 4 nights in December 2015 and had a wonderful time. The blue cottage was great - very clean, well equipped and comfortable with beautiful views down to the lake. Jane was very welcoming and friendly. She provided delicious breakfasts in her house and was always willing to offer advice and recommendations. We were very... More

Beautiful cozy cottage with wonderful views of Lake Te Anau & the mountains just a short drive outside Te Anau village on the road to Milford Sound. We arrived just in time to see a beautiful sunset complete with Jane's lambs providing an idyllic setting. The cottage itself was neat & clean, with modern amenities and a charming bay window....

is a cozy cottage with great views and lambs for neighbors. We stayed here on our fourth day in NZ and it was perfect timing to do so. We had lots of questions about the land, raising sheep, normal everyday things. Jane was a delight to talk to and answered all our questions. Everything that has been said about the... More

We stayed 3 unforgettable days there. The cottage is just wonderful, warm and cozy, clean, well equipped and very comfortable. Surrounded by a most idyllic landscape, sheeps and lambs we could enjoy amazing sunsets every evening while having dinner on the terrace. Ross and Jane were truly delightful and welcoming hosts. The breakfast was beautiful, Jane surprised us with another... More
