Only a short drive from New Plymouth (30 minutes), the property is located within a family dairy farm and is situation on prime lake frontage.

Bring your jetski, boat or kayak - you are able to launch these at the Ratapiko Jet Boat Club. You can park your boat and jetski right in front of the cabin too.

Alternatively, bring a good book and a enjoy a glass of your favourite wine overlooking the stunning vista, on the covered deck.

We have recently undergone upgrades at the cabin, including re-grassing and improved access to the lake via stairs and a jetty. We also now have a fire pit for use by guests - bring your marshmallows!

We encourage guests to take a farm walk around the track (4kms) and you will see some of the most amazing views Taranaki has to offer. Also, you are welcome to call in to our Dairy on your walk and watch cows being milked.

  • Very beautiful and very peaceful

    Very beautiful and very peaceful. Great base for exploring Taranaki. Cabin provides everything you need and was clean (maybe bring paper towles, but that's pretty much it). Very nice bed rooms. Awesome farm loop walk with great views. Were able to take our dog and he enjoyed it just as much as we did. Highly recommended and we definitely would like to come back

    Kermit cabin was cosy and comfy, the perfect getaway to recharge and relax. Fantastic views of the mount, lovely deck to sit out on and have brekkie as well. There were kayaks as well to use on the lake but as my partner was recouping with a broken foot, we took in the sights of the picturesque sunrise on the deck. Will definitely be going back with the family!

    What a beautiful scenery with lake just by the house and farm on the other side of the house. Best of both worlds. Love it.

    Great spot, for us as a keen boating family been able to pull our boat up and anchor it right out the front of the batch was of great convenience. We spent most of our time out on the water or chilling on the deck enjoying the scenery. Such a relaxing spot with its farm scenery, wildlife walking tracks, kayak and stand up paddle board while also having a lake right on the doorstep. Will definitely book again.
