Burn Cottage Retreat has been purpose built for couples and offers three boutique self contained cottages and luxury bed and breakfast homestay accommodation in our country home. Our home and cottages are set well apart from one another and are hidden amidst spectacular woodland, tussock and hosta gardens and a walnut grove. Peace and quiet reign supreme - you will be amazed how well you sleep!

The Cottages: Rascal, Moonlight and Celebration are modern, secluded, self-contained one bedroom cottages with beautiful decor and country touches. Centrally located 3km from Cromwell, 2km from the shores of Lake Dunstan and right in the heart of the Central Otago vineyard and orchard region - the perfect destination to enjoy your winery purchases!

Enjoy free WIFI, free guest laundry, mountain bikes and helmets, plus a complimentary bowl of organic walnuts from our walnut grove in your cottage on arrival. A delicious continental breakfast hamper and cheeseboard platters are also available (extra cost and a wee bit of notice required).

Our cottages are fully self contained with private, sunny deck areas, gas barbecues and carports. Relax by the cosy gas fire, TV/DVD and DVD library, or read our books and magazines. Savour en suite bathrooms with great shower pressure, complimentary toiletries, hairdryers and heated towel rails. The kitchen has a cook top, microwave and fridge freezer but no oven.

Enjoy fresh vegies (in season) from our guest vegetable garden, herbs, rhubarb patch and fruit trees.

We also have a small mob of coloured pet sheep, with lambs born each September.

We recommend at least a two night stay so you can really enjoy the cottages and everything this fantastic region has to offer.

The Homestay Bed and Breakfast: If you prefer a more personal approach, come and relax in the informal atmosphere of our modern country farmhouse which includes timber features, charming touches and country style. We have dedicated a separate wing of our home to hosting bed and breakfast guests in a lovely, airy king size room with exclusive use of a private bathroom with separate shower and heavenly claw foot bath. Guests share our kitchen, lounge and dining room facilities with us and are welcome to relax by the log fire in winter. Please note our friendly Pointer/cross dog, shares our home with us but will be unobtrusive during your stay.

Vineyard Accommodation for up to six people: Do you want an extra special treat? Completely unwind at Rewa's Cadole, a beautiful two bedroomed, two bathroom, stone schist home, 8km from Cromwell, on a boutique vineyard. This very unique property, with mountain and vineyard views and a peep at Lake Dunstan, is best suited to two couples, but can sleep 6 adults (in three queen size beds. Please contact us directly for further information and to hear about special offers. Three night minimums apply at Rewa's.

The guest comments on TripAdvisor, Travelbug and our website speak for themselves - our guests always want to stay longer and many have returned several times. We look forward to welcoming you too - we love to make you welcome and go out of our way to ensure you will enjoy your time here.

  • Having travelled to many places in the world, we found Burn Cottage Retreat to be up there with the best. A friendly welcome with excellent service. We had the pleasure of travelling for a week throughout the South Island. Staying for three nights at the Cottage during our journeys provided us with the opportunity to visit many beautiful places in that area; the Cottage was an ideal base with all the best facilities and more than we needed. An amazing place with a lovely ambience - just off the beaten track. 5

  • Our stay at the Burn Cottage Retreat was beyond belief. Rose and Phil went out of their way to provide assistance to us as we had determined that our driving skills were indeed insufficient to the conditions....US drivers. Rose literally drove our vehicle to Queenstown to relinquish it. The grounds and ambience at the retreat as well as the homelike atmosphere and deliciously prepared and presented breakfasts contributed greatly to our general else of safety and well being. This was a turning point in our two month journey through this beautiful country. We highly recommend this to any weary traveler. Many Many Thanks?? 5
