Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We had the most incredible stay at the Fiery Peak Chalet. We were so lucky to have the most beautiful winter weather with a clear ski. The sunset is well worth sitting on the balcony with a cup of tea or a wine as the sun dips behind the mountains. As someone who lives in the city normally I never in my life seen stars like we saw at Fiery Peak! Sat in the hot tub for hours just staring at the ski. I cannot recommend this cottage more highly. The beautiful simplicity of being surrounded by nature and having everything you could need for a cosy night was everything we needed and more. As soon as you walk through the door you instantly feel at home and like you’ve just walked into paradise! Thank you so much Kay! We will definitely be back!

Arrived on a beautiful sunny day, the location couldn’t be any more perfect for sunning ourselves on the deck. Stargazing from the hot tub was amazing. Kay was very accommodating even bringing some music, via a phone and Bluetooth speakers which was a fab touch. Next day was cold and rainy but the fairy lights and log fire made the atmosphere really homely and cosy. Overall we had a very relaxing visit and would recommend to anyone wanting to get off the grid. Thanks

My partner and I booked last minute as a getaway for Easter. Kay was lovely and the communication was spot on and very friendly. We stayed before the power and landscaping was complete but this didn’t effect our overall stay. The fire keep us cosy, there were board games to keep us busy on the rainy day and the full kitchen was great allowing us to cook full meals. The bed was super comfortable for a good nights sleep. I really loved how Kay and her husband have made the property wheelchair accessible. My partner enjoyed sitting out at the BBQ with a beer. We will definitely be keeping an eye on this place for future stays.

Great off-the-grid spot to chill and relax away from every day life, but still close to town if you need it. Hot Tub was awesome (used both nights of our stay) and with no TV, a great selection of board games were provided which we had fantastic fun with. Host Kay's communication prior to our stay was fantastic and during our stay she was most helpful with anything we required.

We stayed at Fiery Peak Chalet for a couple of nights to allow time to explore the Geraldine area. What a sweet set up!... nestled amongst trees, with a beautiful view, lovely decor, a fire to keep everything cosy warm, there's everything you need for a romantic weekend getaway or for a visit to the Geraldine area. From the sofa or from sitting up in bed we could see a lovely scene of sheep grazing and a range of hills ... lovely to watch the sun go down. Quiet and secluded - no traffic noise whatsoever. The morning sun streamed into the kitchen which had everything we needed. The solar electricity was not yet fully set up yet, but gas for stove and shower and portable lights worked fine. Honestly, the fairy lights just added to the charm. We'll be back!

This place exceeded our expectations. It is a lovely, sunny house with big comfortable beds, ensuite and all mod cons including dishwasher and laundry. It even has a hot tub and huge barbecue. It is a short walk into the shopping area where the Barkers store and eatery is not to be missed.

When my husband I were looking for a romantic off grid night away this place was perfect. It's spacious, quiet and has an excellent view of the night sky and mountains. It's the perfect place to unplug from the outside world with plenty of areas to read, play some board games or soak in the outdoor tub.Also the host is fantastic and makes amazing loaf of bread!
