Spring blossom at Rascal Cottage


Rascal, our most private cottage, is tucked away at the rear of the property and offers guests the ultimate in peace and tranquility.

Rascal is surounded by rural scenes and ever changing garden views, with a creek meandering past the rear of the cottage. It is the closest cottage to the hosta gardens and the guest laundry facilities.

Whilst enjoying breakfast, coffee or an afternoon drop of your favourite tipple from the sun drenched deck, enjoy the scent of roses and lavender in the summer months or view snow capped mountains in winter.



Thanks for making our stay in Cromwell so inviting and lovely and with a touch of luxury.  Your breakfast hamper is amazing and so is your hospitality.  Great facilities, magazines, kitchenware too.  PS Loved the walnuts!
