We stayed in the Queen Room with balcony during post Christmas. Whole cosy house was still full of warm Christmas decorations. The lodge wasn't in Taupo city centre but it locates right next to the lake which offer superb environment and easy access to the small beach in front. Great view of the lake from room and balcony.
