Owners Cottage, Huka Lodge, Taupo, New Zealand

Accommodation Type: Lodge
Number of rooms: 4

Iconic New Zealand luxury accommodation... The Owner’s Cottage at Huka Lodge sits on an elevated and sunny promontory above the Waikato River, within the grounds of Huka Lodge. Virtually completely hidden from view, this luxurious hideaway enjoys stunning views downstream to the mighty Huka Falls. The picturesque wooden cottage was originally built in 1937, for Americans Commander and Mrs. Fitzhugh Green of Long Island, on land leased from Alan Pye. Four spacious guest suites are anchored by a central living room, dining area, kitchen and a den. The colour palette is deliberately muted with elegant use of soft cream hues for the walls and bleached Oak wooden parquet floors throughout. This all contributes to an ambiance of calm restful relaxation within the cottage. The suites all have super-king size beds, crisp cotton bed linen, and soft feather and down pillows, and comfortable chairs for lounging. All suites enjoy the romance of their own fireplace. Each suite also has a magnificent ensuite bathroom – twin basins, bath as well as a shower and the comfort of under-floor heating. The cathedral style ceiling and generous use of glazing means the bathrooms enjoy great natural light levels. Two of the guest suites face the river while the other two enjoy a beautiful private courtyard garden aspect. These gardens also feature one of the magnificent outdoor fireplaces that can be found tucked away within the environs of Huka Lodge. All the suites offer every comfort and that attention to detail that has become a Huka Lodge trademark. The Living Room is the centre of the cottage with magnificent stone fireplace for blazing log fires, high ceilings, cream suede couches, antique leather club chairs – everything you need to absolutely relax. All the rooms are used to display works by some of New Zealand’s foremost artists – Max Gimblet, Mervyn Taylor and Dick Frizell to name a few.

The Owner’s Cottage at Huka Lodge is furbished generously with characterful pieces chosen for their comfort, beauty and history like the wonderful 1920s French Oak chairs in the living room. Should you choose to dine in the cottage, the dining table within the living room seats 8, however you may take the secret path through the grounds to the main Lodge and dine there instead. A well-equipped kitchen also allows for a Huka Lodge chef to cook for you or you may also choose to self cater.
