"The mud hut is fantastic - full of character. The walk to it added to the experience, as it was really beautiful and let you feel how you were more remote. It was incredible to even have a hot bath with the beautiful view of the mountains. Really lovely. Would highly recommend staying here, we'd love to come back!"
"The Red Shed - We arrived at Katie and Tom’s place right after we’ve finished the Milford Track and we needed a place halfway to Queenstown. We found a place that exceeded our expectations by far. The place is very high quality, they really thought of every small detail (design wise). It was very well equipped, in the kitchen and bathroom. The bed was very big and very comfortable. We are really sorry we had a flight the next day and couldn’t stay for more time."
"The Red Shed - Incredible stay away from busy Queenstown. Would definitely make use of all the private trails! The home has everything you need for a comfortable stay!"
"The Red Shed - A little haven tucked away from the crowds ( having come from Milford Sound and now at Queenstown). Tastefully furnished with a beautiful comfy bed - everything new and clean. Lovely vista. Very private."
"The most amazing location that made our NZ experience what it was. Bathing under the stars was a real experience. Make more huts!!!!"
"Throughly loved our overnight bike trip. The mud hut was just as expected - fully equipped, great fire, the outside bath a treat. Thank you."
"Amazing spot in the middle of nowhere! Once in a life time experience! Don’t miss it!"
"The Red Shed - Beautiful scenery and cute little Airbnb. Fall asleep to starry night sky and wake up to sheep just outside your door!"
"The Red Shed - Beautiful shed in nature with sheep on the estates around. Very relaxing, a pity we booked it just for one day as the next days were fully booked already and we couldn't prolong our stay. Two to three days to relax away from the beaten tourist paths would have been perfect. Accommodation well equipped and fast wifi. Great view from the outside table of the mountains infront."
"The place is magical. You feel like the mountain is all yours. And the outdoor bath - priceless :-) We highly recommend to all that aren't affraid to walk a bit to their accommodation"
"We stayed in the Slate Hut and found it to absolutely awesome! The outdoor bath was the star of the show, it took a while to heat up but we just played cards and drank wine while we waited. The most relaxing weekend away ever! Can't rave about this place highly enough."
"Had a lovely stay at the Red Shed at Welcome Rock trails. A very comfortable suite in a peaceful setting on the farm. Great place to mountain bike from, and the Welcome Rock trail itself is very special. Highly recommend."
"This is the most magical get-away ever! We love the mountain location and seclusion. Although incredibly rustic, I give it five stars and recommend any (fit) couple with romantic leanings to experience this adventure..."

"Brilliant. There are not enough superlatives to describe our experience, however ‘bliss’ comes close to the perfect definition."
"Staying at the cottage was a truly unique and remarkable experience. We went up on a sunny day overlooking vast landscapes in brown and green and woke to snow covering every inch. Thanks Katie and Tom for making it available to others. It was a very peaceful and special time for us. And the MTB track was a real added bonus, a great ride. The passion and care that is going into building it is quite something."
"Best location ever! The hut was exactly what we were looking for after spending the new year in Queenstown. It had everything we needed. The whole experience was so rustic and relaxing. Best bath in the world! You can just sit in it during a storm and feel amazing! Great walks to do during the day around the land. We can’t wait to see the cycle trail finished! Thank you so much Tom and Katie!"
"Katie and Tom are awesome and the Hut is an absolutely amazing experience. The view is stunning! There was snow on the ground outside which made the view that much more amazing. We kept the fire going and we stayed nice and toasty warm inside the hut. Great experience if you are looking to disconnect and get away from it all."
"This whole experience was just AWESOME! Katie & Tom are wonderful hosts. Blackmore hut is a little piece of heaven on earth……….. the perfect place to get away from it all and just be. Utopia! Looking forward to returning some day!"
"What a great adventure ! A little hut, hidden in the hills, beautiful landscape, great history. We enjoyed our three nights far away from civilization, in a quiet and peaceful atmosphere. The walks are great, the bath is unique, Will be back again!"
