Bottle Park Lodge is directly opposite Paeroa's iconic bottle and the surrounding well manicured Ohinemuri Park (known locally as Bottle Park). Our accommodation is self contained is ideal for 4 people ( family or groups of friends). Your group or family will be the sole occupants and you do not share with strangers. There is a main bedroom with double bed, a second bedroom with two singles that can be drawn together to make a double. A fold out bed in the lounge area will cater for an extra 2. There is an extra sitting room to give extra space as a quiet breakout space.
Cyclists will love the location because, situated at the junction of the three legs of the Hauraki Cycle Trail, one can ride each section of the trail and back in a day. No need to organise return transport.
Paeroa is steeped in history and there is something to interest everybody. Relics from the kauri logging and gold mining days abound. Also there is a museum and the nearby Maritime Park on the Waihou River.
A few minutes drive takes you to the beautiful Karangahake Gorge scenic reserve with historical relics, swimming holes, hiking and picnic facilities. There is trout fishing, kayaking and other water sports available in the rivers. Take a drive (or a bike ride) to Te Aroha and try the mineral pools. Or maybe Waihi to ride the train or view the colosal gold mine pit. Catch a wave (or a fish) at stunning Waihi beach which is only 30 minutes away.
If that isn't enough to get you going the bowling club, golf course and racing club are all a stones throw away or kick back at any of several cafes and bars.
Don't forget to get a selfie in front of the Bottle (world famous in Paeoa) just like thousands of other visitors to Paeroa.
