Traveling with friends for 3 weeks, we stayed here for 3 nights. We'd opted for the dinners each night, even though the kitchen in the cottage was terrific, and were so glad we did! The food was wonderful, and it was fun to meet the other travelers. We took a 3-hour hike one day and enjoyed this beautiful property. It's very isolated; so, if you need the hustle and bustle of a city, this wouldn't be for you -- but, it was wonderful for the four of us. The owners are terrific, as is the cottage manager. The best lemon meringue pie I've ever eaten was a bonus!

Do NOT miss a chance to stay at Nokomai Station. It's far and away the best place we stayed on the South Island of New Zealand. The location is an easy drive from Queenstown or Te Anau and it's so well set up that you never have to leave once you get there. (Bring plenty of groceries if you are cooking for yourself) The lodging is in stand alone modern cabins that were perfectly appointed. They have kitchens and even a washer dryer right in your room. If you don't want to cook Ann Hore and her staff serve really top notch food. We are still talking about the dinner we had there. They have sheep galore and you get to watch the dogs work. Tons of spectacular hikes are right out your door. We used their mountain bikes to explore the valley and they have a really big section

If your looking for a authentic farm experience in New Zealand, Nokomai Station is the place to stay. We loved our visit there, and the hospitality we received from the owners. The farm itself is beautiful with over 90,000 acres, 50,000 sheep, and a pretty river filled with brown trout. The accommodation is in a 1 or 2 bd new cottage next to the original stone house which now houses the kitchen and dining area, where we enjoyed delicious home cooked meals by the owners wife, and pleasant conversation with the locals. The apt. had all the comforts of home, excellent washer/dryers, even a movie channel on TV. The location is nice too because it's an hour from Queenstown, and an hour from Te Anau and the fjords, and what a contrast with Queenstown. I guess it's like what all of
