My husband and I stayed at the Henkel Hut for 2 nights. The views of Lake Tekapo from the Hut were amazing. The big green grass patch just in front of the Hut, followed by the vast expanse of sapphire blue water in Lake Tekapo and then the snow-capped mountains in the distance made for a truly idyllic experience. The Hut itself was private, cosy and comfortable, with a wood fireplace and a kitchenette. Location-wise, it was about a 5 to 10-minute walk to the village where the restaurants and shops are. It was truly a gem! We could not have asked for a better place from which to enjoy Lake Tekapo and its surroundings.
