Lake Hawea Station
Ranked #23 of 45 Specialty Lodging in Wanaka
Reviewed November 8, 2012

A stay of a lifetime for our family. The views of the lake and the massive scale of the station just take your breath away. I lost count of how many times one or another of us said "I can't believe we're here".

The cottage was just the right combination of rustic, charmingly furnished and utilitarian. And then there are the visitors -- friendly dogs and inquisitive chickens.

Three days, two nights just weren't enough to explore all that the property has to offer. The hosts are simply wonderful. They made us feel comfortable immediately. We felt that it was a privilege to have the chance to stay on such an amazing property.

It's a long trip from the USA to NZ, but places like Lake Hawea Station make it worthwhile. We can only hope that we have the chance to visit again.

We spent our first three nights (extended from 2 booked earlier) at Lake Hawea Sheep Station. The property is gorgeous, Homespur Cottage was perfect and well appointed beyond expectations and totally self catering including washing machine. Hiking on the property through sheep pastures, short walk to the lake, beautiful mountain and lake views, private, fabulous. Tom and Adrienne were wonderful hosts!! 28,000 acres... 10,000 Merino sheep... lake, mountains... can't wait to go back!
