Wildwood Lodge is set in five acres of landscaped gardens with two hundred meters of totally private lake frontage on the shores of tranquil and historic Lake Rotoehu. Having been totally rebuilt for the 2006 season, Wildwood is the most recently constructed Qualmark 5-star luxury Lodge in the Rotorua area. It represents the very best of contemporary architecture, offering total privacy and understated elegance for the discerning traveller. No other house is visible from anywhere on the entire estate.
