Smoked Trout is a 3 bedroom 2 bathroom Lake Tarawera bach. Enjoy a comfortable stay in this older style bach located in peaceful surrounds and boasting magnificent views of Lake Tarawera!

This Lake Tarawera bach is a comfortably furnished two level home. On the upper level there is a lounge, two bedrooms, 1 with a king bed and 1 with 2 bunks plus a trundle bed (Please note that double bedroom is accessed via the bunk room) and a bathroom. Outside, there is a big deck perfect for soaking up some sun and getting stuck into a good book.

Lake Tarawera has pristine water quality and is well known for its excellent trout fishing. This bach is ideal for kicking back and letting life slow right down. Blue Lake and Lake Okareka are nearby and perfect for all boating activity - particularly water skiing and biscuiting! Take out the single Kayak (lifejackets included) for a great day in the water and sun! For a chill-out at the house, enjoy an extensive collection of books, videos and board games!

Across the lake is the outlet, where the walkway follows what is commonly known as the disappearing stream. Walk further down the track and you descend down a cliff face, and once at the bottom you can look back and see the disappearing stream re-appear. This cliff face has a waterfall.

Smoked Trout is also close to the famous buried village, a fascinating day trip to add to your itinerary.

Welcome to a piece of paradise at Lake Tarawera!

    It is definitely a nice place to stay as it is quite and Self contained. I did really enjoy my stay and The best part is there is no Mobile coverage at this bach which made things much happier as there are less things to worry. I would like to come back in Summer again for the views.
