Listen to birdsong while reading a book in the pristine, clean air of the grounds.
BBQ your dinner on the deck watching the sun go down & ducks fly home.
Take a plunge in our spring-fed natural pool.
Enjoy a meal outside sitting in the shade of the walnut trees. 
A plethora of games to play away the hours with your partner.

Sounds wonderful doesn't it?

And it's screen-free & Wifi- free!

from the busy world for a few nights,
and reconnect with your partner.


Rest, revive your soul and re-connect.

Eco-friend/y & off -grid

Built in 2022, Fiery Peak Eco-Retreat 66 sqm has been designed with the environment in mind.

Powered by the sun, supplied with our own pristine spring water (UV filtered, unchlorinated), set amongst 12 acres of trees: this beautiful open-plan chalet looks out across farmland to the mountains. Your time at the cabin will allow you to step out of your busy life for a few nights.

Gaze at the mountains from the king bed through open bi-fold windows, take a long soak in the handcrafted (Lignum) woodfired hot tub, gaze at the splendour of a sky full of stars, listen to bird song, BBQ your dinner on the deck while you watch the sun go down behind Fiery Peak, linger while the sky changes colour and ducks fly home for the night, recharge your soul.

If you have time, there's a lot to do in and around Geraldine using Fiery Peak as a base for a 2 or 3-night stay:

Take a day trip to Peel Forest (Horse treks, bush walks), Lake Tekapo (ice-skating, snow tubing, hot pools), Mt Cook (Hooker Valley, Sealy Tarn walks), Mt Sunday (Lord of the Rings film site), book an evening 2hr tour of the night sky at Geraldine Observatory, OR relax in the cottage beside the fire with a book with no one to bother you, popping into Geraldine to check out Barker's new cafe and food store or other restaurants/ Geraldine cheese factory-shop.

BBQ: We have a Weber BBQ for guests to use. It is just gorgeous sitting outside enjoying the evening, cooking, dining and wining with the backdrop of the mountains.

LATE CHECK-OUT: Because I hate to rush when I am away on holiday, at Fiery Peak you can stay till mid-day if your schedule allows. So wake up, relax, enjoy the morning coffee and breakfast before heading away. Check out anytime up to noon.

If you need anything to eat.. there are some lovely restaurants & cafes to choose from in Geraldine, just 8 mins drive away. Alternatively and possibly better, grab a cooked chicken, selection of salads and bottle of wine from the local supermarket and make the most of your time to relax at the cottage. Takeaways also available from Royal India, Q Foods, or Jack’s Chinese Takeaway/Fish and Chips.

Guests say that the night sky at Fiery Peak is as good as Tekapo. With the telescope provided, you can check out the evening sky from the deck of the cabin, or sit in the hot tub and stargaze for as long as you like.
