We chose Jessie's cottage for a rest after a busy few days hiking the Milford and exploring Doubtful Sound, and weren't disappointed. The ammenities were great, even down to fresh ground coffee. We like cooking, so after equipping ourselves with fresh venison (the butcher by the school in Te Anau) and fresh lobster (just a bit further along the road in Te Anau), we had a couple of memorable evening meals with the sun setting over the mountains. There is a resident cat and if you are a bit averse to moggies then you might be put off.
