Small family bach with all the basics for a minimalistic romantic stay.

Enjoy the expansive views towards the Old Man Range to the north and be lulled to sleep by the gentle sound of the mighty Clutha River.

Try your luck fishing or swimming in the Clutha river, or you can ride or walk along the Clutha Gold Trail. Enjoy the local fruit in season, visit Miller's Flat's popular cafes or simply relax on the veranda with a good book and your favourite drink.

The space
Please note that we have introduced an enhanced cleaning policy to help protect against COVID-19. We’ve also made our cancellation policy kinder for guests, so please be considerate to others by not coming if you have fever, coughing or difficulty breathing.

Small, off-grid family bach with all the basics for a comfortable, but minimalistic stay. (Don't worry - we DO have a hot shower and flush loo, but no wifi - although there is good vodafone coverage). There's so much to do here, it's a destination in itself and many of our guests have told us that they wished they'd stayed longer.

Immerse yourself in the rural sights and sounds and feel free to wander down to the river for a paddle, picnic, or try your luck catching a fish or panning for gold! Relax on the deck with a book borrowed from our extensive supply and enjoy an evening drink while the light changes over the Old Man Range to the north. Finally, be lulled to sleep by the gentle sound of the mighty Clutha, with not a care in the world!

Plenty of other activites and points of interest in the neighbourhood, including mountain-biking, walking, 4 wheel-driving, fruit picking, sightseeing historical points of interest, visiting the local (highly acclaimed) Faigans cafe and meet some of the local farmers at the Millers Flat Pub.

Whether you're after a romantic getaway for two or a fun family experience away from technology that the kids will never forget, look no further! (Sorry, less suited to more than 1 older couple at a time due to the sleeping arrangements).

In staying with us you are helping to fund a native revegetation programme on the property, which you are welcome to inspect.

Other things to note
This bach is not just a bed for the night, it's a destination in itself. Make sure you allow enough nights here to give it justice.
