It was bitterly cold when we arrived with recently fallen snow all around us. Quite breathtaking. It was lovely to light the fire and get it roaring. It was zero degrees when we got in the car the next morning, but you wouldn't have known inside. The house is also comfortable, with a newly renovated bathroom, and well equipped.

Great place to stopover in Arthur's Pass. Close to many great walks of varying difficulty. The kitchen and bathroom were well equipped and the fire was great for heating. A very comfortable place to stay!

We had a lovely stay. It was warm and comfortable with little luxuries such as a new bathroom and a coffee machine. We would love to return.

Perfect place to explore Arthur's Pass or to read books by the log burning stove all day. Very relaxing and enjoyable!

Warm, comfortable, has everything needed in kitchen, great location, helpful and responsive hosts. The house is being renovated in a lovely fashion, so don't judge your stay by the older appearance of the outside. Very glad to have had a few days there.
