Lake Taupo Lodge, Lake Taupo, New Zealand

Number of rooms: 7

Lake Taupo Lodge's creation was started 30 years ago by Gary and Shirley when they purchased 10 acres of wild bush in Acacia bay overlooking Lake Taupo. Both of them are keen gardeners and Gary has a particular love of wildlife so the native bush formed the perfect haven for his love of birds. From there they split Lake Taupo Lodge into 3 lots retaining the 3 and 1/2 acre lodge site for themselves.

From the breathtaking lake and mountain views to the gorgeous gardens that surround you there is an overwhelming sense of peace and tranquility. Sink into the soft furnishings in the library in front of the fire or recline on a sun lounger in the seclusion of the gardens where native birds abound. Lake Taupo Lodge is fully set up for small VIP Executive conferences with all up to date technology and have had some very successful meetings here. Taupo is ideal for pampering important people that need a retreat from the hectic business world. Wairakei Golf course is only 10 minutes from Lake Taupo Lodge.
