Come for the views and stay for the hospitality

Jackson's retreat is a top notch 10/10 place to stay. The facilities offered were excellent and nicer than the campervan site at Milford Sound. The lounge and kitchen area were well equipped and it was the perfect spot to stay near Arthur's Pass. The friendly staff went above and beyond the extra mile to help us out when we were in a pinch. I want to send out a huge thank you to them for letting us use the computer to print out forms for replacing our wet Canadian passports. We were so grateful to be able to sort out applications for new temporary travel documents. Couldn't have done it without their assistance. Kiwi hospitality at it's best! I highly recommend staying here when you visit Arthur's Pass.

What a lovely place. The sites were nice and clean with plenty of room. The hostess was very friendly and knowledgeable. The surrounding was fantastic. The glow worms and waterfalls are a must see. Best of all, the bathrooms were extraordinarily clean

The facilities were the most immaculate we’ve ever experienced. The views to die for, glow worms for night time adventure, a splendid waterfall walk, shady creek for the kids to play in and plenty of walks nearby. Spent 3 days adventuring here

Room tip: Great location for adventures. 4wd? The Taipo river valley is amazing. Cockayne Nature Walk is a great short loop.

stunning location between Arthurs Pass and the Wild west coast. Idyllic native bush setting with lots of birdlife and stunning diverse rainforest.

We had a cabin which had a really comfy bed and space for us to sort out our gear.

Friendly helpful staff and great kitchen/lounge with outlook into the forest.

Thank you for a wonderful few days away from our busy city lives! We all loved our stay at Jackson’s Retreat (except for the sandflies) and enjoyed the glow worms, bush walks, waterfalls and serenity of your location. Friendly hosts made our stay enjoyable and the bathrooms are the cleanest I have ever seen in a camping ground! Totally recommend for everyone to stay and visit!

Loved the location, waterfall and fresh mountain water. Friendly staff, relaxed atmosphere, clean facilities and everything u need or might have forgotten to bring available in kitchen.
Stayed 2 nights in tent... only gripe was ground very rocky so bent some of our tent pegs.
Nearly got lost trekking to the old quartz mine so hope the way gets cleared or better marked before others venture there.
Will definitely be back sometime!
