A wonderful cottage with friendly, helpful hosts who go the extra mile to ensure you enjoy your stay. We appreciated their local knowledge and recommendations on walks, places to see, etc and all the extra thoughtful things Jane does, like home baking, etc. Would certainly recommend staying here and will stay here again.

The cottage is well situated approx 15 min from Queenstown by car. Not close enough if you want to be in the middle of the action, but if you want to relax, this is the right place. Jane was a marvelous host and answered our every question rapidly. A very good place to stay near Arrowtown.

Jane and Roger are warm, friendly hosts who went out of their way to be helpful and accommodating. Rather than the Cottage, itself, we were in one of the one bedroom apartments. There was a good choice of ingredients with which to make up our breakfast. There was some home baking to greet us on arrival. The rooms were clean,...

When I contacted the hosts about staying at Orchard Cottage it was already booked but they offered us a one bedroom apartment on the end of their house and it is perfect for a couple. Communication with Jane was good beforehand and on arrival we were warmly greeted and there was even a welcome sign up and it was a...

Jane and Roger make this quiet oasis a best pick. About 2-3 km from Arrowtown, a freestanding 2br structure across the yard from their home. Comfy in every way, lots of personal touches that make the visit easy on the traveller. Free use of the laundry made it even better! If you like Arrowtown but want quiet and helpful local...

We have just spent 10 peaceful nights at orchard cottage . It was a family ski holiday. We skied mostly at Cardrona but Coronet peak and The Remarkables are very close too. The cottage is sunny, bright, clean and so comfortable with beautiful views. You feel like a local with Jane looking after you and advising you on where to...

What a wonderful cottage - quiet with great outlook, very well equipped and looked after with obvious love and care by the owners who live next door.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Delightful two bedroomed self-contained cottage in private rural setting with mountain views. Main bedroom has a king bed, second bedroom with twin king singles can be made up as superking if required. The cottage is located well away from the main house for privacy and has a sunny verandah, its own garden with outdoor seating and bbq area plus ample parking. The cottage is very well equipped with full kitchen facilities, gas heat pump, electric blankets and ski boot drying rack for the cooler months with quality linen and all cleaning included. Home baking a speciality. Less than 5 minutes from historic Arrowtown and 15 minutes from Queenstown airport but in a quiet rural location yet only 20 minutes from the nearest skifield at Coronet Peak which can be seen from the property. Ideal as a base for the many activities on offer in the Queenstown and Lakes district or for a quiet getaway or romantic weekend. Let us know if your visit is for a special occasion. ... more   less
