Burn Cottage Retreat offers three boutique self contained cottages and luxury home stay accommodation, purpose built for couples to completely relax amidst beautiful surroundings and stunning decor, with the finest country touches. Our home and cottages are set well apart from one another so peace and quiet reign supreme - you will be amazed how well you sleep!
Rascal, Moonlight and Celebration are modern, secluded, self-contained cottages nestled in a walnut grove and park-like hosta, woodland and tussock gardens, 3km from Cromwell, 2km from the shores of Lake Dunstan, right in the heart of the Central Otago vineyard region.
Rascal and Moonlight Cottages are both designed for one couple (one king size bed) while Celebration Cottage is a studio cottage which can accommodate up to four people - one king size bed, one king single and one single rollaway bed, all in the same room. We do however recommend taking two cottages if there are two couples, as this will give you more space.
We offer free use of our guest laundry, mountain bikes and helmets, plus a complimentary bowl of Meyric walnuts from our walnut grove in your cottage on arrival. A delicious continental breakfast hamper and cheeseboard platters are also available (extra cost and notice required).
Enjoy free access to the guest vegetable garden, herbs, rhubarb patch and fruit trees. Small mob of pet sheep, with lambs born each September.
Each cottage fully self contained with private, sunny deck areas, gas barbecue and carport. Cosy gas fire, TV/DVD and DVD library, books and magazines, luxurious en suite bathroom with great shower pressure and complimentary toiletries. The kitchen has a cook top, microwave and fridge freezer but no oven.
We recommend at least a two night stay so you can really enjoy the cottages and everything this fantastic region has to offer.
Guests who don't require a cottage might prefer to relax in the homely and 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 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.
If you really want to enjoy a special treat, we are able to offer the opportunity to stay in beautiful two bedroomed, two bathroom, stone schist home, Rewa's Cadole, situated 8km from Cromwell, on a boutique vineyard. This very unique property, with mountain and vineyard views, is best suited to two couples, but can sleep 6 adults. Please contact us directly for further information and to hear about special offers. Three night minimums apply.
