It was a peaceful stay for us. The owner and her dogs were very friendly.The lodge was very clean and spacious. We had our own parking space. There were pots and pans and utensils we could use. Only problem I had was the fact there was no heater. The bed had a warmer but no room heater. Maybe i should... More

If the weather is good and you have children then this is a perfect place to stay. Lovely surroundings and very quiet, even though it is minutes away from most Rotorua attractions. We had a very relaxing time.

We stayed for 2 nights in October 2012. The accommodations are clean and tidy - if you're after a mansion type accom, don't stay here BUT, if you're after friendly and helpful hosts, a fun adventure playground, sheep, alpacas, cows, calves, ponies, chickens and dogs to play with, pat and feed, then this is it! Our lodge had 2 bedrooms,... More
