Tranquil lodge with a hint of adventure

Welcome to Taupo! A thermal wonderland of active volcanoes, trout-filled rivers, alpine tussock and ancient forests. Kiwis flock to the region all year round, spending their days on the lake during summer and up the mountain, skiing during the winter. Outdoor activities are abundant in this region.

In a tranquil haven on the outskirts of Taupo, surrounded by lush green landscape and rolling hills is a lodge hosted by Kiwis, Garth and Angie. They are both outdoor enthusiasts, keen hikers and mountain bikers. You will also be treated to fresh baking and produce straight from their garden.

Your private suite has views over Mapara Valley towards Mount Ngangautu. Go swimming at the nearby lakefront or pop into Taupo city centre within 15 minutes. Garth and Angie are committed to protecting the environment and are proud of the fact their lodge is carbon neutral.

Are you ready for adventure? Conquer the Tongariro Alpine Crossing, Great Lake Trail or the Tongariro River Trail. You will be transported to the start point and returned to the lodge. We can also organise a multi-adventure. Or maybe, you simply want to relax? That’s possible too.
