We hope your stay with us will become a special memory. With just three rooms and a cottage available and up to ten people staying at any one time, you can be assured of a quiet but congenial atmosphere. Book one of our rooms for your holiday escape or, for a special event, book all four rooms to have exclusive use of the guest facilities at the property.

All rooms in the main house have spacious private bathrooms with a walk-in shower. Luxurious linen and large beds are the standard. Hairdryers, irons and ironing boards, heater, extra bedding, spa bathrobes and slippers are available in each room. A range of bathroom toiletries are provided.

A separate shared guest lounge/dining area opens onto an inviting deck with relaxing outdoor seating and sweeping views across to Lake Taupo, the township and the rural surrounds. Wide open green spaces, tranquillity and birdsong ensure a relaxing stay.

Our Cherry Tree Cottage has recently been rennovated and can sleep up to four. It has a separate kitchen/dining area and a lovely covered patio with outdoor lounge and dining seating and a private hot tub. It is suitable for couples, small groups or families with children over 8 years of age.
