Burn Cottage Retreat has been purpose built for couples and offers three boutique self contained cottages or luxury bed and breakfast homestay accommodation in our country home. Our home and cottages are set well apart from one another and 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 calm restful decor and extra touches to make your stay special. 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!Queenstown, Wanaka and Arrowtown are all within easy reach.

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

Our fully self contained cottages are privat with sunny deck areas, gas barbecues and carports. Relax by the cosy gas fire, watch TV or a DVD from our 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 picking 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 October.

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, 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.

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.

  • We were lucky to book this place. Phil and Rose have created a Shangri-la. The one bedroom cottage was immaculate. Everything worked. Spotlessly clean. Loads of room to enjoy living. The gardens are a joy to experience. The hosts are proud of their compound and extend themselves warmly and generously. Bed and bed linens are 5-star quality. Towels are big and lush. WiFi worked great. Fully equipped kitchen. There is no traveler’s needs detail that has been overlooked. In three weeks on the road – this place was #1 and we were lucky to have experienced it. It represents superb value. 5

  • Thank you Douglas for your absolutely wonderful review. It was a pleasure having you stay with us and we are delighted you loved your stay. We are both very proud of what we have created at Burn Cottage Retreat. We both have very high standards and we tried to provide all the little touches that we like when we are travelling away from home and we love it when our guests appreciate our hard work! We hope you will come back to stay again one day. Merry Christmas and kindest wishes to you both. Thanks again for staying. Rose and Phil

  • 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

I am so glad we were able to help and do hope you are enjoying the rest of your holiday in New Zealand and not having too many hassles connecting with trains and buses. Kindest, kindest wishes to you both till we meet again one day. Rose and Phil and Meg
