Mackenzie Crib - sleeps 4, Free Wifi

“Cool as Ice” is the description given by the judges of the New Zealand Master Builder Awards when it gave ‘gold’ status to Mackenzie Crib. The judges said, “This is a high-performance house, built to handle the extremes, where every detail has been well considered and crafted.”


Mackenzie Crib is the perfect retreat for couple(s) that want to enjoy a stunning yet cozy alpine getaway.  There are two bedrooms, both with king beds and mountain views. 


Mackenzie Crib is situated on a quiet road, across from the historic Mt John homestead where Al Pacas and merino sheep graze amongst the tussocks. Fifty meters away you’ll find the Cairns golf course, and the village center is just a short 5 min walk away. With uninterrupted mountain views, you will not want to leave.


Upon entering Mackenzie Crib you will understand why it won the ‘gold’ award.  The home features white-washed ply walls, recycled rimu timber floorboards and exposed rafters. Take time out to relax in front of the spectacular fireplace on plush leather couches or on the double window seat.


The chic kitchen and dining area has everything you need, from the latest appliances, to all your cooking & eating requirements.  The kitchen opens out through sliding glass doors onto a sunny north-facing deck, which has rustic wooden furniture, BBQ, and wood beams that frame the spectacular lake and mountain vista. 


There are two bathrooms, both with showers and a separate toilet.  Your stay is further enhanced by an impressive two-person, free standing bath.  


The radiator heating system in the bedroom wing is temperate controlled, which ensures your stay is toasty and warm on those snowy winter nights.  


A separate laundry with a washing machine, dryer, sink and ski boot holder adds to the convenience of your stay.


Please note there is no TV, but there is unlimited VDSL WIFI which allows on demand viewing.


With our other properties, ‘Quiraing’ and ‘Tractor Shed’ located just next door, you’ll have the option to travel with larger groups, extended families and wedding parties. Mackenzie Crib is also just down the road from the Mt John Woolshed & Homestead, and a short walk from the Lake Tekapo Community Hall, and Peppers Resort; all popular wedding, reception and function venues.
