The last review said it all, but we wanted to also add our utmost gratitude for having the opportunity to stay at Lodge 199 in its last month. We travelled around New Zealand for a month, but our stay at Lodge 199 was unmatched due to the incredible hospitality and graciousness of Kay Shortland. Even though the property was stunning...

We only stayed at the Lodge for 2 evenings, but were taken away by the surroundings and the terrific accommodations provided by Kay. She was extremely helpful and such a great hostess.

Firstly, we stayed at the Lodge in June 2009 not 2010 and we stayed 3 nights. My husband and I loved the Lodge. Situated right on the edge of Lake Tarawera down a long driveway, the setting is private and serene. We loved sharing the break-fast table with the other guests and exchanging stories.

Two nights wasn't long enough in this delightful lodge at the water's edge. Our room was luxurious with a view down to the lake and a private terrace.

We stayed for two nights in the lap of luxury. Kay is a very welcoming host and she made us feel at home from the moment she opened the door.
