Such a beautiful house and perfect location, with views of the lake and a short walk to all shops. Nina is a fabulous host, there were lots of very thoughtful touches to make our stay special. Highly recommend the Lake House, hope to go go back.

If you are a couple or 2 then I highly recommend Glenorchy lake house as a place to rent for a base in this area. Close to the lake with good views, the house is very comfortable and has all you need for your stay. The hot tub is also great after a big day out. The house is well managed by the trading post next door and all your needs will be well looked after.

Had a fabulous stay at the Gelnorchy Lake House - The room was VERY comfortable and spacious, the shared kitchen facilities are perfect and a lovely lounge to rest in at the end of the days adventures... PLUS an excellent hot tub!! The place was very warm even in the middle of winter. Very friendly staff and an absolute home away from home. We were fortunate enough to have it all to ourselves which made it even more amazing value :) Highly recommend to anyone wanting a comfortable and homely accommodation in picturesque Glenorchy. Love it here!

This is a house with several rooms, a living room, and a kitchen--which we happened to have all to ourselves--at the northern end of Lake Wakatipu, a much quieter place than touristy Queenstown. After we checked in, we were served tea on the terrace outside our room. Very friendly staff. The owners also own Kinloch Lodge, across the lake, which will serve a very good dinner if you order in advance. Sometimes a boat is available to take you on the 5-minute run across the lake, but the drive is more picturesque, around the northern end of the lake and toward an area where part of "The Hobbit" was filmed. Breakfast is do-it-yourself in the kitchen, all ingredients provided. Very nice, relaxed place.
