There are multiple living and entertainment areas in which to relax or dine, including a library with whisky bar baby grand piano. Throw open the French doors to patios and courtyards, the heady scent of the herb gardens and a logia with fire and wine cellar.
A substantial local and international art and furniture collection is enjoyed throughout.
It is difficult to describe the sense of light, warmth, love, history and sophistication the owners and architect, Andrew Patterson achieved with this restoration/ renovation.
The Green Project: working in consultation with The Department of Conservation, the owners have fully funded the removal of invasive cracked willow at the edge of Lake Hayes. They have planted over 3,000 native plants to restore the wetlands and over 300 other trees around the property to date.
The Homestead may be booked on its own or with one or more of the Cottages below.
It is perfect for families, groups of friends or for a very private corporate off-site/ retreat.

The Cottages at Lake Hayes are light and bright with the tranquil wetlands, lake and mountains taking centre stage through the expansive picture windows.
The 5 cottages offer a modern, refined retreat with a nod to the property’s farming past. Each cottage has 2 bedrooms with ensuites, open plan kitchen-living-dining with lake and mountain views. They are designed to settle into the landscape and “for the interiors to pop”. This with the attention to detail and perfect quality finish, won a New Zealand Institute of Architects award in 2021.
A communal fire-pit with a wildflower surround is a great place for après activity drinks and nibbles.
Fabulous NZ art, hot tubs and cosy window seats add to a super-relaxed stay.
The Cottages may be booked individually, as a group or with The Homestead. They are perfect for couples, small families, for larger groups travelling together or for a corporate get together.
