The creation of Lake Taupo Lodge began 30 years ago when Gary and Shirley purchased 10 acres of wild bush in Acacia Bay overlooking Lake Taupo.

Guest Comments

  • "Joyce and I enjoyed our stay at Lake Taupo Lodge. It was first class and the attention and service was very much appreciated. We especially were impressed with the memorabilia items, sculptures and art that surrounded us, it was a touch that took you above the normal realm of sophistication. Baxter was a special treat for us, we miss not having a dog these days, and he is a special little guy that was so well trained that never for a moment did we not want him with us. We will put you on our list for future excursions."
