I absolutely LOVE tussock cottage. I have stayed at tussock cottage a few times now and let me tell you... it is something special for sure! The cottage is very clean and well decorated. The bed is very comfortable and all amenities that may be needed are provided.. including fresh eggs from the chickens and usually some home-made baking! It is in a beautiful location that looks over Lake Hayes, and is secluded from the main house. You feel as if you have travelled to a remote location but really it is not far from Queenstown town (about 15 minutes) and the small town, Arrowtown (5 minutes if that). Lee and Jaap are amazing hosts with a great personality. They are so kind and giving and would help anyone out whenever. Their children, Noah and Ella, are so lovely and their dog Poppy is so friendly. Honestly the best place to stay in Queenstown. Would recommend it to anyone!

We've been visitors to Queenstown for many years, and because we brought our dog down with us we chanced upon Tussock Cottage, for a 3 night stay. It is honestly one of the best places we have stayed in Queenstown/Arrowtown, not only for the outstanding location by Lake Hayes, the ambience of the cottage, but the welcoming atmosphere the hosts Jaap and Lee provided. The cottage is beautifully appointed and cosy with underfloor heating, lovely fresh eggs and being welcomed with banana cake, fresh from the oven were extra special touches. The cottage is quiet and private, with lovely gardens and is wonderfully located for walks around the lake, and close to Millbrook and Arrowtown golf courses and a short drive into Queenstown and Arrowtown. Future visits to Queenstown now have to include a stay here!

What can I say? Our stay at Tussock Cottage was MAGNIFICENT. We spent 5 nights there and it was very comfortable. Great location, close to ski fields, wineries and Q Town. Lee and Jaap were very friendly and helpful and nothing was a problem. I would recommend Tussock as the place to stay if you are in the area.

This was a real find for us. We have a dog, which was very welcome inside this lovely cottage. Situated on the edge of the lake which has lovely walks of varying lengths, while being only minutes from Arrowtown and a short drive to either Queenstown or Gibbston Valley. Lovely and clean with help from Jaap and Lee if needed. Lee's fantastic art work can be seen in the garden and the cottage. Detailing in the cottage is exceptional. Our only disappointment was not being able to use the lovely seating area outside - however, we shall have a return visit in the summer to make the most of the fantastic garden setting.
