Welcome to Riverstone Cottage

Riverstone Cottage is self contained accommodation sleeping 2 couples or a family comfortably. Nestled on the banks of the pristine Hawea River, the lodge is only a 10 minutes drive from the busy Resort Town of Lake Wanaka, or 5 minutes from the quiet lakeside village of Lake Hawea.

Enjoy comfortable private accommodation in one of the most stunning and beautiful places in New Zealand’s South Island.


Riverstone Cottage is surrounded with native bush, rose gardens and beautiful rocks. It is built in European style with a pitched roof and typical country design of wood and stone. Step through the old wooden door and enter a peaceful space, which many guests have called home.

Enjoy your time in the lounge with the comforts of a cosy wood burning fire. Relax in one of the comfortable chairs and start reading your book or watch a DVD from the library. Imagine dinner at the table with laughter, stories and sharing happy times.

Prepare your treats of the day like a chef in a fully equipped kitchen with gas hobs and electric oven. There is also a microwave for when time is short. And after a good meal: let the dishwasher do the dishes for you.

This spacious bedroom upstairs is a luxury for two or three people. Enjoy a comfortable queen size bed and one single bed on more than 20sqm. And if you should feel cold at night, warm yourself with an electric blanket and sleep well in the non-allergic winter duvets.....

This cosy bedroom on the ground level provides a comfortable queen size bed and beautiful views to Mount Maude. Enjoy in the colder winter time special non-allergic winter duvets and electric blankets.

For your comfort there is a bathroom on each level with all amenities: heated towel rails, extractor fan, heater and a large shower. And best of all - unlimited hot water with our smart gas system.

The north west facing deck invites you to soak in the stunning panorama of the mountains and to relax with peace and tranquility around you all day long. And what could be better than a BBQ surrounded by the Manuka on your private deck ...
