For our honeymoon, we visited beautiful New Zealand for one month spending three nights at Lake Taupo Lodge. The lodge is a small, high end boutique B&B. I believe there are only four rooms, which makes it private and quiet. It is located in a residential neighborhood. Hosts Gary and Shirley are exceptional: gracious and willing to help plan activities...

We can not say enough about our stay at Lake Taupo Lodge. From the moment we arrived we were treated to five star service. The property is done in Frank Loyd Wright inspired architecture. Each room has beautiful views and all the amenities you need. We were spoiled by the amazing breakfast that was served each morning and the delightful...

A traveler to some of the best parts of New Zealand, like Lake Taupo, should stay away from standard resorts. One of the best parts of this amazing land is the warm hospitality of its people: no place perhaps exemplifies that more than Lake Taupo Lodge. All the standard stuff is good: rooms, the view, the garden in front etc....

Do take a night or two here as respite from the travelling. Really beautiful. The hosts are absolutely committed to you having a restful time. Breakfast with other travellers is a nice touch and beautifully prepared. Stay. Relax and enjoy the spectacular views.

A wonderful blend of service, site and architecture with an aspect second to none over Lake Taupo. Gary and team make it feel like you can stay on for much longer. The grounds are in themselves a balm for any hectic schedule. Highly recommended.

This lovely Frank Lloyd Wright inspired home overlooks manicured gardens as well as Lake Taupo. The hosts and staff provide a warm welcome and lots of helpful advice regarding the area - where to eat, what to do... The rooms are spotless and the breakfast delicious! Highly recommend!

Do you still know the Harts? If you drive into the entrance of Akers Lodge, you feel as if you enter the Hart Ranch (Hart to Hart) and Gary and his wife are just as enchanting as the Harts. Incredibly hospitable, caring and adorable. The animal love of Gary particularly pleased me. On the property live two great dogs, which...
