What guests are saying:

“We had a fantastic day at Shear-Vue. The location, with views of the farm and snow covered hills, was just beautiful. The cottage itself was clean and comfortable, it was perfect for our nearly 2 year old with lots of toys, books and a trampoline. There were lots of lovely personal touches like homemade biscuits, fresh farm eggs, and pancake mix for breakfast. Julie was friendly and an excellent communicator. We would stay here again in a heartbeat!”

What guests are saying:

“This cabin was literally perfect! We had the nicest and most relaxing stay. Neither my partner nor I wanted to leave in the morning and wished we could stay longer. The hosts sent us the most lovely welcome messages and made sure we had everything we needed. We would HIGHLY recommend staying here and we will certainly be back in the future. Staying in this cabin was a highlight of our trip.”

What guests are saying:

“We arrived very late at night after driving from Picton. Sharon stayed up and welcomed us and made us feel at home. The heat pump was on and it was so nice to have a warmed up place on arrival. The room was big enough for 2 adults and our 2 teenage daughters who slept on the pull out sofa. The accommodation is very modern and has a lovely bathroom with a wonderful shower. Sharon supplies us with some milk so we were able to have breakfast in the morning prior to leaving. Sharon even had a coffee maker too. The accommodation was very clean. Excellent value for money. Would stay again if ever in need of an overnight stay. Thank you Sharon.”
