When it starts out as a lovely sunny day and turns a bit grey and windy there’s nothing better than a seriously cosy stay at Glenorchy Lake House.
We set off in our car from Queenstown and within fifty minutes (I’m lying there may have been a few photo stops on the way) we were in beautiful Glenorchy where you could be forgiven for thinking Golum would pop out of the bushes and join you for a cup of tea. Mountains, lake, fresh air and some seriously good carrot cake from The Trading Post and we were ready for an evening of relaxation.
Set right against the wonderful Richardson and Humbolt ranges, Glenorchy Lake House is perfect for a cozy weekend away for some romance, with your gang after a hearty walk during the week (hot tub alert!), or just to get out of Queenstown and head to the pub for some pool (which I won at by the way).
We started the evening with cake and coffee, a few rounds of pool at the local pub and headed back for hot tub, Indiana Jones DVD and a raging late night. (I’m lying again. We were in bed by 10.30pm)
A gorgeous two bedroom cottage fit for a queen, with bathtubs, the most comfy of comfy beds to sleep in and breakfast all ready and waiting in the fridge. We sipped, we lazed, we coiffed, we looked out at the beauty of Glenorchy and relaxed for a wee while. The morning after we met John (and Toni who are owners of Glenorchy Lake House and Kinloch Lodge) who picked us up from the wharf in his boat and headed over to Kinloch to sample some of their new menu and have a look at what they’re doing over there (spoiler amazing stuff).
Take a load off, get cosy and head over to the end of the lake.

I was a guest at The Lake House but my views are always my own.
