The Homestead at Lake Hayes - Queenstown, NZ

A luxuriously renovated historic homestead with stunning gardens on a 10 acre private estate on iconic Lake Hayes, Queenstown

Why choose The Homestead at Lake Hayes?

The Homestead at Lake Hayes is where history meets lakeside luxury over 5 bedrooms and a modest 15 acres. Sink into the hot tub and snuggle up around the outdoor fire pit with a glass of Central Otago Pinot Noir. All while the children run wild in the century-old orchards.

A modern masterpiece with a century of class

Originally built in 1906 ‘restored’ doesn’t come close to describing the lovingly crafted masterpiece
the owners have achieved. Bespoke pieces from around the world complete the incredible interiors that allow families and friends the rare opportunity to spend quality time together, without treading on each
others toes.
