Timms Cottage allows you to relax with an indoor outdoor space giving you breath taking views of Mt Dobson, Fox Peak and our farm. The cottage is situated behind the family homestead within our garden on our farm, providing a peaceful and private setting. We are only 10 km from Fairlie which has some great eating places, 3 km from Lake Opuha and half an hour from Mount Dobson and Fox Peak. Tekapo and Geraldine are only half an hour away.
“Fantastic place! So beautiful that we immediately wished we’d booked more time there. Charming cottage with lovely pastoral views and no noise but the birds. Very clean with everything you need including a fire-place ready to light.”
Enjoy a little luxury at Lucky Star Cottage. Just off Mackenzie's famous Starlight Highway in the township of Fairlie and only 30 minutes from Lake Tekapo and the Mt. John Observatory. Stargaze through roof windows from the comfort of your own cosy bed.
“What a gem ! This place is a little rustic cottage from the outside and a bright modern, well equipped unit inside - “ all mod cons “ We had a fabulous view of the stars through the velux windows in the bedroom. Highly recommend this place ! Sue and Ron”

“This was one of the highlights of our trip. After days of hiking, it was a respite to arrive at the farm and have a cottage to ourselves with a hot tub and a lovely view. The hosts had plenty for us to have a nice breakfast including eggs from their hens and fresh pancake batter. The farm tour was a treat - fun and informative. Julie and her husband treated us as if we were their only guests ever. They took their time showing us around and answering questions. Feeding the animals was also a fun. It was just a wonderful experience and I cant recommend this place highly enough! Hope to go back one day!!”
