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.
