A small farm set on the top of a hill with stunning 360 degree mountain views. Great for travellers, skiers, adventurers and couples just wanting to get away from it all.
“Ann and Malcolm are the absolute best. You simply must book this place. An amazing retreat property. Watch glorious sunsets, frolick with the animals in green pastures, forage for nature's bounty, soak up the fresh air and sunshine, all while staying with friendly, laid back hosts with a great sense of humor. Close to many great spots near Arthur's pass. Thank you for giving us the retreat of a lifetime.”
If you want a luxury getaway in quiet rural surrounds then River Retreat is for you. A delicious continental breakfast tray is provided and a super comfy bed. You can eat out or make your own meals in the fully equipped kitchen. We have 10 acres next to the river and the Hororata golf course is just next door plus lovely views of the Malvern hills. We are next to Inland Scenic route 77 and the Rakaia and Waimak gorges are only a 15 minute drive away. And Ballooning only 5 minutes away.
“The River Retreat was a perfect stay. Situated on a large property with its own paths to walk around and enjoy the farm, and also a great base for other walks and activities in the area. It was pouring rain during our stay but we still enjoyed it as the accommodation was cosy and warm with a log burner and heat pump. Margie and Allen were very attentive and friendly hosts. The large skylights might be a bit bright on early summer mornings, but other than that we couldn't fault anything! Highly recommend.”
My place is close to family-friendly activities. You’ll love my place because of the views, the location, the outdoors space, the people, and the ambiance. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers & families. Well suited for all ages.
“Pamela was such a lovely lady with such lovely pets. We were really welcome with open arms and she took great care of us. She went absolutely out of her way for us, offering us tea and breakfast. Thank you very much, we would definitely stay again. The place is modest and very comfortable and homely.”
