Perfect little place to come home to and relax after a busy day out. Such comfortable beds and couches and kitchen has everything you need. The view out to the lake was exactly what we were looking for when booking a place and this didn't disappoint! Sarah was a great host, although we didn't actually meet, and we knew she was only a text away. The comfort of this home made our trip all the more enjoyable and we would highly recommend a stay here!

This place was an absolute gem!! Pete and Sarah were great hosts throughout our stay, happy to assist with any request, even booked us a taxi to town! Cottage was super with amazing views from the deck, perfect for a vino or two. Great location for easy access to the Remarkables and Coronet ski fields. Loved the comfy bed, the decor throughout and also the big couch! It was a warm and comfortable cottage with a luxurious and cozy feel. Will definitely be back!
