Gorgeous tradtional Hatepe bach, only a minutes walk to Lake Taupo, the beach and the Hinemaiaia River - renowned for its Trout fishing. Recently modernised this fabulous self contained bach is a perfect escape. It is ideal for families with children or couples wanting to get away from it all. Situated in a sheltered spot on a large grassy section, Cedar Lodge is right in the middle of this unique settlement and the community tennis court available for use is across the grass. It is well insulated and provides a fabulous cosy base from which to explore the surroundings or just sit and listen to the birds. A fully insulated 'sleep out' provides sleeping for 6 more guests providing peace away from the main house. A large deck with outside table is perfect for alfresco meals, sun and barbecuing. The open fire and living areas provide an ideal area for relaxing in winter and provides different spaces for adults and children. A wonderful holiday getaway!

    There are two bedrooms in the house, one with a queen and the other with a queen and a separate single bed. All of the other beds were in a sleep out/shed out the back. This was very cold, damp and dusty, the duvets had stains on them and the mattresses were very dated or just foam squabs. We ended up bringing the best mattress inside for our extra person to sleep on the floor. This seems obsurd for $200 per night. Also, all of the plates and mugs had to be cleaned before use.

  • Awesome little bach in a really cool location

    Awesome little bach in a really cool location. Super close to the lake, short drive to Taupo. Community seems very safe and friendly. The bach itself is great. Clean and tidy. Not a 5 star resort (but it doesn't claim, nor price to be) - but it does have a really nice modern kitchen which is ideal. I appreciate the option of cleaning the place ourselves. As we are pretty tidy guests, we didn't want to pay for a cleaning fee. Highly recommended, and will definitely be back one day.

  • Top spot

    Top spot...tennis court and green space in front of the house which was brilliant for the kids. We will certainly be booking again

    Really nice cosy bach, really close to some beautiful swimming spots at the lake. We had a party of 8 and there was plenty of room especially with the extra beds in the sleepout. Highly recommended.
