  • Lovely bach on the edge of the lake

    Lovely bach on the edge of the lake. Has everything you need. The only downside for us was the private Hatepe boat ramp has washed away under the water and can really damage a boat and or trailer. Our boat almost fell off when the right wheel of the trailer disappeared off the side of the ramp. Advice rather get a ramp permit and drive to nearest public ramp. Also at current the "mouth" or channel into the lake is very shallow not deep enough for even a 5.5m boat.

    Loved the days on the lake and in spite of the amazing bad weather the home was cosy with fire and we walked the lake and tracks on lake and river every day. We experienced the best sunset ever in our lives. I sent it to my son in Germany and his friends were convinced it was photoshopped. Hatepe is unique and we loved it.
