Bellbird Cottage is a 1 bedroom Waitahanui bach at Lake Taupo. Enjoying a tranquil bush setting, this modern and comfortable lake base is the perfect getaway for 1-2 guests just 10 minutes drive from central Taupo, and a hop skip and a jump to the lake for a swim or kayak!

This Waitahanui bach includes compact and well presented open plan living, including a kitchenette, dining, and sitting area with all windows and doors double glazed... For easy outdoor flow, unwind on the deck and enjoy the peaceful and private setting. This is an ideal spot for laid back holiday dining, or simply sit back with a glass of wine and enjoy the peace and quiet!

There is 1 bedroom at this Waitahanui accommodation, fitted with one queen bed - ideal for couples.

Everything you need for a self-catered, refreshing break away is on hand - stay on site and soak up the serenity, or stroll a few minutes down the street for direct access to the most crystal clear, free flowing river you would ever want to fish or walk along. The Waitahanui River originates from springs at the base of the Kaimanawa Ranges in the Central Plateau, and you will feel especially lucky to have the famous 'Rock Pool' within 5 minutes walk of Bellbird Cottage. There are also many easy walking tracks alongside the river - the cycle and walking tracks take you all the way to Wharewaka from this lovely spot. Plus, the Whakapapa Ski Field is just a 45 minute drive away for winter adventures!

Your relaxed lake Taupo hideaway starts here... Welcome to Bellbird Cottage!
