      Cute Getaway

      This cottage was absolutely idyllic. I booked it as the location for myself and my bridesmaids to stay and get ready before our wedding. It was perfect for this, as it provided a serene calm environment. The host was great and really responsive. Would definitely like to stay again and enjoy an escape to the Wairarapa here.

            Lovely getaway location

            We stayed in this lovely cottage for a couple of nights on our way to Wellington. We loved the location; close to Masterton but rural enough to not think so. Enjoyed the environment of surrounding trees. Well appointed accommodation. Thanks.

              A Stunning little Cottage - Loved it!

              My friend and I just loved the Cottage and all its history! We love that era of the wooden floors , wooden sash windows and the old coal range in the kitchen. The property was beautiful and private too. We both thoroughly enjoyed staying there. It was a great girlie weekend which was loads of fun and many a laugh! It was really nice being able to have my dog stay and the dog bowls were provided which was nice. That was one less thing that I needed to bring. Also having the Doggy Day Care place just minutes away from the Cottage was so handy. I didn't have to worry about my dog being in the car during the day with the sweltering heat up there and I could just relax more when I was out and about during the daytime and then just picked her up on the way back to the Cottage. It would have been nice though if there was a heat pump to cool the inside of the cottage at night as it was so hot in the evenings inside. We would definitely stay again. Thank you
