We stayed in Acacia Cliffs Lodge in early November. Our stay at the lodge was one of the highlights of our trip. Linda greated us and immediately began to take care of our sightseeing needs. Three of us had previous plans to walk the Tongoriro Alpine Crossing. Linda then helped arrange a fishing trip for my husband as well as an awesome evening cruise on the lake for all of us. Linda even prepared us a delightful "box breakfast" to take the morning of our early departure for the walk! We dined in with Rick and Linda after returning from our walk. We ate dinner with 2 other couples and had such a great time!! Rick grilled 2 of the trout my husband caught earlier in the day and then served them as our appetizers. Such a nice surprise and SO GOOD! Rick is an amazing chef, only matched by Linda's superb organizational skills. Dine in with them if you can....the meal easily matched....actually surpassed....most of the meals we had in restaurants. And Rick is quite the conversationalist!!
AND then there is "the view"!!! We had a room overlooking the lake....the entire wall in front of the bed was a window offering one of the most beautiful views of Lake Taupo you could imagine. The view of the lake and the distant mountains was breathtaking during the daytime and maybe even better at night.
One last word of thanks....Linda notifed me a few days after our departure that she had found a ring that I had left in our room She then graciously had it sent to our hotel on the South Island. THANK YOU!!
I HIGHLY recommend a stay in this truly unique lodge. You will not be disappointed.
