This is one of the most idyllic locations in Queenstown. This often-admired 2-bedroom cottage is now available for you to enjoy. With only the walking track separating you from access to the lake you couldn’t be closer to the waters edge.
This 1860 Stone Barn has been fully refurbished so that it retains its charm and character but with the comfort that you would expect from a property today.
A perfect getaway for a couple or family, this is a wonderful retreat - private grounds add to the stunning setting.
Summer or winter this cottage is ideal – enjoy swimming and bbq’s in the sun or get the skis ready for the mountains close by. The cottage is fully equipped for all seasons with water equipment ready to enjoy in the hotter months and a drying room for the ski gear in winter.
Cosy, yet light and airy this is one of the most desired and unique locations in Queenstown. With only a 5-minute drive to Arrowtown and 15 minutes to the heart of Queenstown you have the best of both worlds. The acclaimed Amisfield Winery and Bistro is only a 5-minute walk away too.
Coronet Peak base building is a comfortable 25 minutes drive whilst the Remarkables base building is slightly further at 40 minutes traveling.
If you enjoy walking, running or mountain biking then having the 8km track circling the lake right on your doorstep is an added bonus.
