Greeted very warmly by Sue and shown our delightful residence. Given No 3 which looked over lake...superb position. All facilities to hand. Good BBQ and very clean. Fishing tackle to hand. Sue works very hard to please. Very close to Taupo and airport

Thats such a nice review. The lodge is so casual and unassuming but being so close to the lake has all you need for a memorable stay. Thank you for taking the time to post.
