Lumsden Cottage

Lumsden Cottage is a beautiful, fully restored circa 1920 cottage with a beautiful feel. Located in the small historic settlement of Lumsden, it is only minutes from the Oreti River and close to a number of other great waters including the Mataura.

The cottage is fully restored and has well insulated polished timber floors, high ceilings, modern furniture throughout and super comfortable beds. The kitchen has everything that could possibly be required from slow cookers to sandwich makers. The laundry is an ideal drying room.
