There are two cabins on the farm run by Sarah and Fin. Ticks all the boxes - good size (open plan living / dining / kitchen with separate bedroom and bathroom), large comfy bed, well equipped. The views are lovely, overlooking the lake (about 5 km away) and mountains beyond, seen from bedroom and living room and deck. A couple...

We were trying to book at other locations without success as it was peak period. An owner referred us to this place and we made a booking for one night. Our family five loved the place. The cottage is very well furnished, very well kept rooms with all mod cons and very comfortable beds. Free wifi was excellent. The view...

Thank you Sarah and Finn for a wonderful stay!

 We are so glad we found your cottages and how lucky that you had availability for our family!

 The cottage was perfect for us, we are a large family of 6, with 4 young kids so Sarah put an extra roll out bed in the cottage for us so that we...

We stayed here one night but have fell in love with this self-contained cottage. It was clean and comfortable. It had everything that we needed: a well equipped kitchen, heated flooring, clean shower room, comfortable beds. We felt relax especially when sitting at the swing and admiring the fantastic views surrounding us! Unfortunately it was a cloudy day when we...

We stayed two nights and were delighted with the place. Nice walks around the property, very close to town and attractions, place was comfortable and had everything we needed. Sarah is a very busy gal what with the new pizza restaurant they own but was still very available if we needed anything. Good communications before our stay. Great views and...

During our 5 days stay, our 2 sons enjoyed every day to feed the lambs with milk bottles and to take care of them inside the pen for hours with Sarah's understanding, to collect the chicken eggs, to spend time with the owners' daughters and their horses. The cottage is equipped with about everything you need to have a comfortable...

My wife and I stayed for two nights in the cottage. Throughout our trip, we stayed in several accommodations and Glacier Rocks had to be the best and most memorable farmstay. It is equipped with everything we needed. The electric floor warmer and bed warmer were especially helpful to us. We woke up one morning with 2 full rainbows set...

My husband and I stayed in one of the two cottages whilst on holiday in Te Anau. They are down a long driveway on the farm of the owners about 5 minutes drive from town. The only sounds were birdsong and lambs bleating. Serene, peaceful, it is a great place to rest and recharge. The views are glorious and the...

My girl friend and I stayed two nights at Glacial Rock. I was taken aback by the beautiful self-contained cottage with a car port, facing a large green pasture in front, deer herd to the left and two lovely horses that Sarah and Finn keep. The cottage is right beside their own home, which is an amazing house itself. We...

We arrived tired and late having flown and driven for hours. We were met by the owner and explained we needed temporary accommodation fo my assistant as his own accomodation would not be available for until tomorrow. We had just picked up his dog from the kennels and Wade explained he carries his kennel on his trailer and he is...
