Friend and I stayed at this lovely place for 3n and it was amazing. All the amenities were top notch - tv, DVD, skytv, spacious bathroom, kitchen with full utensils and basic condiments, and a SPA tub (which is totally unbelievable). The staff was very helpful and friendly and they provided fresh goodies like spinach, egg, bacon, bread every day...

We hired the entire house (3 adults) and had the most amazing stay in this gorgeous little town of Glenorchy. The scenery is beautiful and the day trips you can take from here are just a delight to the senses. The house is very comfortable and contains everything you could possibly need including an outdoor hot tub all to yourself!...

I've had the most amazing time at Glenorchy thanks to this beautiful house and wonderful hosts. This is a great base to plan your Routeburn/paradise road trips. You wouldn't want to miss out on the carrot cake prepared by "The trading post" just behind the house and the sumptuous pizza at the GYC adjacent to it, all just footsteps away!...

After a dud experience staying elsewhere in Glenorchy we stumbled onto this gem. First class, clean, tidy & friendly staff who couldn't do enough to make our stay more special. So glad we found it. We will definitely be back.

The Lake House was definitely the highlight! My husband and I were travelling with our daughters, so we had booked the entire house. We fell in love with the house itself - modern, comfy, clean, warm with personal touches throughout. The hot tub was a huge success (and there are robes provided for your added comfort). Breakfast was beautifully presented...

I had already fallen in love with this place when I saw it online and made the booking but being there in reality was even better.. I wished that I could have stayed longer. I was lucky enough to have the place all to myself. My hosts were amazing and had the house all nicely warmed up with the fire...

Loved our stay here in March: quiet, secluded, comfortable + great breakfast! Fabulous location and a real treat after backpacking/camping on the nearby tramping tracks. Also drove round head of lake to sister property Kinloch Lodge for some great veggie dinners on a couple of evenings. Only downsides: bed a bit soft and stay a bit expensive - but worth...

Hi Sue and Celia, Thanks for your review. We are really glad you enjoyed the stay. Sorry the bed was a little soft for you. It is still hard with a mattress to get something that is perfect for everyone, though perhaps that technology will change. We work hard to offer good value for money. We are glad your stay...

I arrived after dark so the next morning was a wonderful surprise with the house and the lake just across the field. Goodies in the fridge for me and an extremely comfortable bed were just what the doctor ordered. I explored the area and came back to a cozy house each evening. Kind, discreet hosts and calm surroundings made for...

Very nice room with a wonderful view. The breakfast was great as well. Glenorchy is definitely a small town, but the views are fantastic and it had a very quaint and charming feel. If you go, staying at the lakehouse is a must do. Very charming and relaxing. I hope to go back one day and stay here again.

“One bedroom has an en suite and is far larger and more private than the smaller bedroom, which has a separate bath and shower down the hall - therefore if privacy is an issue go for the larger room. This would be a great place for a family to rent as well.”
