My wife and I traveled to Lake Tekapo in Nov 2011. Stayed there for a night. Lake Tekapo is a small community of about 300 people (as I understand from Dennis). It has about two main points of attraction namely a small church plus the Mount John Observatory center (which is about <10km drive away from the town center). We spent about two weeks in the whole of South Island covering Kaikoura, driving through Hanmer Springs, the west coast, Queenstown and then here. I must say the lake view ranks right up there as among the nicest. If one is lucky you might be able to see the southern lights during winter period too.
Overall, we've had an enjoyable stay. Joanne and Dennis are also very hospitable people and shared with us quite a bit during breakfast.
