Our cottage offers tranquil accommodation with tastefully appointed furnishings.It has wonderful ,elevated views over one of the best trophy trout ,lakes in the world.Stoney Point Reserve boat ramp and playground is a short distance away.Lake Tarawera is short 16 minute drive to Rotorua and its many attractions.

The newly opened walk to hot water beach is breathtakingly stunning and a must do.The rewarding soak in the hot water at the end is the perfect finish !! Then enjoy the scenic trip back on the water taxi .

  • Beautiful spot and amazing vie s from house

    Beautiful spot and amazing vie s from house . An incredibly restful place to stay. Accommodation was great, lovely house. Perfect size and lovely deck to sit out on. Only negative comment would be the slipperiness of driveway..a family member badly slipped outside the front door on the build up of green moss..could be cleaned a bit more to prevent this as quite dangerous

  • the location is really peaceful

    the location is really peaceful. Great view of lake Tarawera. The fire keeps it really warm. just couldn't locate the ash bucket to empty the fireplace and i think the people before us had the same problem as it was full of ashes when we arrived. Great Stay . Thank you

  • We loved our stay at Carpies Cottage - the house is great...

    We loved our stay at Carpies Cottage - the house is great and sits amongst beautiful trees with lots of native birds. It is an easy walk to the lake and some wonderful walks. The cottage is beautifully set up - no fire required but imagine it would be a wonderful place to stay in winter also!
