Criffel Cottage

The newly renovated cottage is the oldest standing structure at Criffel Station and bursting with historic character.  Containing one king bedroom and two double bedrooms, a separate kitchen with dining and living room, this cottage sleeps up to 6.  Key features include the original 19th Century stone fireplace, the sunny veranda, the surrounding bustling farm life and only 10-minutes from central Wanaka.  Guests will feel a world away and yet well within driving distance to ski fields and local restaurants. 


Shearer’s Quarters

1 queen bedroom, 1 twin bedroom and 1 single bedroom with external access from the veranda. Sleeps up to 5 pax. 

The perfect blend of historic preservation and modern conveniences and comforts. Lovingly restored, whilst retaining its original layout, this charming cottage is sheltered and secluded. You may choose to take a stroll to the bubbling creek or make the most of all bedrooms opening out to the deck and simply sit back and soak in the views of the mountains in this perfect hideaway. Nestle up in front of the crackling fire for a romantic break, or bring the whole family and explore the land, there is something for everyone.



Gardener’s Cottage

1 queen bedroom and 2 double bedrooms with external access. Sleeps up to 6 pax. 

For those that love an authentic experience, the Gardeners Cottage is the place for you. Surrounded by fields and close to the homestead, you may wake to find deer just over the fence as you enjoy your morning coffee on the sunny deck. Light and airy with the bustling farm yard not too far away, you will feel like a true local.
