Loved this place! We only stayed here one night as we passed through to Doubtful Sound, but enjoyed the stay greatly. The view outside the windows in the Cardrona cottage is ridiculously stunning—and overlooks the hills and paddocks of which Wanaka sheep call home. The town’s a short drive (8 minutes or so) away, so getting dinner after snapping a...

Great place in a beautiful setting, breakfast was delicious and getting to hand feed their sheep was an unexpected bonus. Craig and Michelle were really wonderful hosts. If we come back to wanaka we'd absolutely stay there again.

We stayed here for two nights but could have stayed longer. Craig and Michelle were away when we checked in and there was someone to take care of checking us in. The hosts arrived later in the day so we got to meet them. Since we planned on leaving early the next morning for a hike to Roy Peak, they...

On arrival there was on one in the office. It was about 1.30pm and we realized that we were early. We returned about 2pm and Michelle drove in a few minutes later. Michelle was lovely and she just mentioned that check in was 3pm. I told her that no check in time was mentioned on my paperwork. It was not...

Craig and Michelle were the perfect hosts. This place is a gem. We stayed with them for 3 nights in February. Our lodge was beautiful and so lovely to enjoy a lovely breakfast in their home. Craig hitched up a BBQ for us so we could cook and eat in the wonderful garden. Oh my goodness we fell in love...

As soon as I arrived I said "I'm staying and not going home!" Craig and Michelle were welcoming from the outset and did everything to make us feel at home in the beautiful self catering cottage. Even given a bottle of local wine as we were staying for a week to visit our son! Everything was provided, even plastic containers...

We were delighted with our stay at Alpine Lodge . We were made to feel most welcome even when we arrived a little earlier than expected. The room was very comfortable and tastefully decorated. We looked out on beautiful gardens and the hill tops. The breakfast was delicious and it was great to meet the other guests. We would love...
