The perfect romantic getaway from the hustle of life, in an environment you won’t want to leave. Open fires, candles, and the warm wooden ambiance of this restored historical cottage create the perfect spark, along with local produce and wine, whilst watching the sun set over the surrounding mountains, after a day exploring all the local area has to offer.

Situated close to the Opuke Thermal Pools & Spa, Mt Hutt Ski Area, Mt Hutt MTB park and the Hakatere Conservation Park.

Feel free to dine in or we will assist with recommending the restaurant options in nearby Staveley, Mt Somers or Methven.
