We booked the green cottage and were not disappointed. Being just 5 minutes from town it's an excellent base to explore the area. Breakfast is plentiful and is served in the main house next to the green cottage. Breakfast time is also a great moment to chat with the hosts Jane and Ross about life in NZ.

My partner and I loved our stay in the Blue cottage. We were impressed by the wonderful views, aesthetics of the cottage and very comfy bed. Also, the hosts are lovely and we thoroughly enjoyed their hospitality. The facilities are adequate (sink, microwave, fridge) given the yummy breakfast provided and plenty of places to eat in town. We do hope...

Thinking of the experience that we had in this wonderful place, make me want to go book and travel in there once more. We actually came a little late because we kept on stopping from Christchurch to Te Anau. Well, can't help it! Along the way are those majestic views that I can now see from my own eyes! When...

The Croft is a self contained cottage located on a farm. It's got a rural relaxed feel which is still very private. The cabin is very warm, cozy but also spacious with a comfortable sitting area and kitchenette. Breakfast options available are both a continental and cooked and served at a time of your choosing. If you like pets, there's...

The charming Blue Cottage (one of two) was our cozy home for 3 nights near the small town of Te Anau. We were welcomed by Jane, who made us feel right at home and was full of good information on hikes and other activities in the vicinity. The immaculate cottage has all the amenities, including a large, modern bathroom, very...

What a delightful setting for a cottage.......next to a sheep pasture, on a lake, with trees and gardens all around! Jane, the owner, was absolutely amazing with her hospitality. She has created an oasis of serenity with everything she's done to the Blue Cottage. The two nights spent there were among the best of our trip. If you're going to...

If you are looking for a lovely bed and breakfast to stay in Te Anau look no further, stay at the Croft Bed and Breakfast. Jane is such a lovely host. The Blue Cottage is newly build, pristine bedding with a comfortable sitting area. The surrounding area just simply puts you at ease as you look out your window drinking...

We stayed in 14 different places during our 3-week trip to New Zealand, but we both agreed that, of all of them, this was our favorite. See that photo up there of the green cottage? That was where we stayed, and it felt so homey it felt like our own. Jane, our host, was just outstanding, a down-to-earth, genuine woman...

We stayed one night in the Green Cottage, went on an overnight cruise of Doubtful Sound, and returned for three more nights in the Blue Cottage. Immaculately clean and tastefully decorated, the cottages look out across the grazing sheep in the pasture to the lake and mountains beyond. It was a pleasure to drink a glass of wine on the...

The Blue Cottage, one of two self contained units, is a total delight. It is set facing a lovely view across to the mountains around the lake in the distance and this view can be enjoyed from the verandah, the bed or the sitting area. It is also great for star gazing. The interior is attractively and comfortably furnished with...
