Ferryman's Cottage
Ranked #24 of 53 Wanaka B&B and Inns
Reviewed September 25, 2010

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Ferrymans Cottage, our hosts were a delightful couple, the accommodation was first class and in a most picturesque garden setting.
What added to the attractiveness of the cottage was learning of its history, as the name indicates, it was one of the original buildings of the area.
we can highly recommend a few days stay at The Ferrymans Cottage

Marie and Bryan went to such a lot of trouble to make me welcome in their beautiful home. My room was very comfortable and I slept like a log (though this may have had something to do with the wine served with a delicious dinner).
I'm just sorry that I was able ot stay only one night.

This cottage is enbedded in a beautiful garden that invites people to sit outside and enjoy the splendid flowers. Its location is very handy to a river that allows for swimming and fantastic walks.

But best of all is the breakfast.... Marie and Bryan are really going out of their way to provide the most amazing breakfast with fresh ingredients from their own veggie garden. Absolutely fabulous !

This 19th century fairy-tale cottage is located in a quiet town just outside Wanaka. It has been beautifully restored and tastefully furnished with period furniture. The front yard features a true English style cottage garden with stone pathway, rose-covered trellis and gingerbread trim. The owners, Marie and Brian, have clearly put their hearts into this lovely place, and we really enjoyed their friendly hospitality. Upon our arrival they both joined us in the parlor/living room for good conversation, tea and delicious shortbread biscuits. We were invited to use that room any time, with coffee and tea available.

Our rooms -- aptly named Lemon and Mint for the color scheme -- were clean, comfortable and each had a separate locked entrance from the outside. We appreciated the thoughtful touch of a bowl of chocolates on the bureau. One room has an ensuite bathroom, the other has a separate but private bathroom with delightful antique fixtures.

Breakfast was quite generous, delicious dishes cooked to perfection and beautifully presented, including fresh home-grown produce. When we asked where we could do a small bit of laundry, Marie and Brian offered to do it for us -- a truly unexpected kindness. They booked a dinner reservation for us at a place they recommended -- Relishes Cafe in Wanaka -- which turned out to be fantastic.

We would easily recommend Ferryman's Cottage.

An historic, charming home built by the first European (Pakeha) born in this area, set in a fragrant old-world cottage garden. Nestled a stone's throw away from the famous fishing river, the Clutha river. Marie loves cooking. Allow yourselves to be pampered. We utilise fresh home grown or locally grown produce whenever possible. Dinners by prior arrangement.Relax in peace and tranquility, far from the "madding" crowds. Our cat "Indy" decided our hospitality (and presumably our food) was so good that she left home and moved into Ferryman's permanently. ... more   less
