Accommodation with History, Fruit, and Wine close to Hand

In the 1860's gold was discovered hidden beneath the stark beauty of New Zealand's Central Otago landscape.

The next great rush was to capture Central Otago's sunshine in the juice of apples, apricots, cherries and other stone fruits. Then, towards the end of last century the secret was out. The stony soils, distinct seasons and low rainfall of Central Otago were ideal for producing gold of different kind. Wine. Today the Cromwell Basin is internationally recognised as the heart of the Central Otago wine region.
