            Thr Blue Thistle cottage was the perfect start to our trip to the Milford Sound area. The host is lovely and very accommodating. The cottage was spotless, comfortable, and cozy. Having a small kitchen was such a bonus. We highly recommend this get-away!

            Setting, Comfort, Quality

            Staying at the lovely Blue Thistle Cottages really centered our amazing visit to Te Anau. We were so awed by Lake Te Anau and exploring the Glowworm Caves and the drive to Milford and the Milford Cruise and being able to return in the afternoons and evenings to Blue Thistle Cottage allowed us to soak in all that was amazing about that area. The Cottages are well appointed, with quality linens and comfortable beds. The owners are very friendly and approachable with good communication leading up to our stay. Best of all is the peaceful, pastoral setting of the cottages, with amazing views over the Lake and to the mountains. What a stay.
