The Cottages at Lake Hayes offer luxury lakefront accommodation on the shores of Lake Hayes, Queenstown, one of New Zealand’s most iconic settings, and close to all of the outdoor activities, with ski fields, golf courses and vineyards on your doorstep, and only 10 minutes from bustling Queenstown and historic Arrowtown for world class shops, bars and restaurants. The Cottages were launched in 2020 and the stunning views, luxurious interiors, a curated art collection and exquisite attention to detail have already welcomed back many returning guests. Each of the 5 cottages sleep up to 4 adults with 2 en-suite bedrooms with private terraces, a fully-equipped kitchen, dining, bar, and lounge with wood-burner. Each cottage has their own parking, plus secure storage for skis, golf clubs, bikes, and a laundry and drying room. There is also a communal Pinot Pit and you can treat yourself to a cottage with a hot tub. The Cottages are perfect for a private escape or an extended group get-together.
A Wonderful stay We had high expectations of the cottages from word of mouth recommendations and they did not disappoint. Very tastefully furnished, high quality everything throughout and fantastic attention to detail, a very luxurious stay and one we highly recommend.
We had the most fabulous time staying at The Cottages, so much space, stunning artwork, comfy beds, fab views and great location right on the lake and so close to Arrowtown with restaurants if you want to go out. We went skiing and are planning a summer trip mountain biking now.
