    A hidden haven at the edge of Lake Hawea, Wanaka, New Zealand. Stay a night, a week or longer and enjoy the ultimate retreat.

    The Black Shack is a gorgeous sunny lakeside cottage nestled amongst native trees, with world class mountain and lake views. It doesn’t get more idyllic than this. With only a 2 mins drive from Lake Hawea township or 15mins drive to Wanaka township – you get to enjoy easy access to shops and your daily flat white but then quickly be back in paradise relaxing and enjoying nature.

    This is a unique slice of paradise. There are not many cottages available to rent in such an idyllic spot. You can hear the birds every morning, hear the water of Lake Hawea lapping near the cottage. You truly feel renewed and invigorated after a stay here. Surrounded by native trees, nest...

We stayed 4 nights at the Black Shack. There had been unseasonal snow fall just prior to our arrival, so the mountains and lake looked just spectacular. The Shack is very clean and comfortable , with a well equipped kitchen & cosy fire - everything that we needed. We woke up each morning to snow capped mountains, water lapping the lakeshore, peace and quiet. We would definitely return. Fully recommended. more

Black Shack in Hawea is peaceful place to relax, right on the lake,
with great views on Lake Hawea.
Well kept and fully equipped kitchen, you can do your own cooking but check your supplies,
only one grocery shop in Hawea.

We booked on very short term notice, and Gordon was very helpful to make it work.
