Alchemy Cottage is a freshly restyled holiday home in the heart of Arrowtown, right across the road from some of the best coffee in town!

Step outside and you’re 2-3 minutes from the town centre, a few doors down from an award winning day spa, and just a few paces away from the well-loved Provisions Cafe. If you’re visiting in Autumn make sure to head to the iconic tree-lined avenue around the corner, or if you’re visiting in summer head out for a riverside picnic just moments from your door.

A clever design by Cassells Green fills the interior with all the comforts and style of modern living, while the exterior remains as charming as the fellow Arrowtown cottages around it. Open plan living with brand new designer furniture and art makes for an excellent chill-out spot after a day of adventure, and a great spot for a lazy breakfast before you set out for the day.

Staying in Alchemy Cottage also puts the wider Southern Lakes area right at your doorstep. From the front door you’re just a 20 minute drive from Queenstown, 25 minutes from Coronet Peak and 50 minutes from The Remarkables Ski Area.

If you're looking to stay a little out of Arrowtown, check out Alchemy Country Cabin as a great place to stay for a romantic couples trip. You can view this property by searching "Alchemy Country Cabin".

Style, charm and location all make Alchemy Cottage the ultimate Arrowtown getaway for a couple or family!

Stayed August 2022

Accurately described, a beautiful facilitated cottage within walking distance to the main street and great places like the Fork and Tap. Perfect place to get to the snow resorts and only 20 minutes to Queenstown. We would definitely stay there again! The only criticism would be a recommendation for a drying room for ski gear which would have given this property a 10/10!

We all loved our stay at Alchemy Cottage. A beautiful spot right in the heart of town. Small, but coped easily with our family of 5. We would definitely stay here again :)

This is the best place to stay in Arrowtown. We've stayed here twice. It's so close to everything, yet quiet and peaceful. Fantastic place to stay. 100% recommended. Will be returning.

Alchemy Cottage is beautiful and provided the perfect base for our family holiday. It looked fantastic in the photos and when we arrived it exceeded our expectations. It’s cosy and comfortable while being stylishly designed with thoughtful details in every room. We actually felt like we were in a hotel, the furnishings were that lovely. The kitchen is well appointed and the bathrooms are fabulous - heated flooring a huge hit! We were also delighted to find a voucher for a complementary massage at nearby Oddfellows Beauty Therapy awaited our arrival. The massage was amazing and this generous gesture was hugely appreciated. We would be delighted to stay here again.

Great house in great location. Across the road best coffee and breakfast. Short walk to centre of town. Alchemy is 5 star accommodation, very modern with high quality furnishings. Pity about the TV, bring plenty of books.

Hi Peter, we're so glad that you loved the house and location! We totally agree that the range of TV channels on offer in New Zealand is a little limited when you're used to more from overseas. This house does have Freeview.
