I don't want to leave. You have created a little patch of heaven in this amazing place. Thank you

My wife and I chose to stay here for a special weekend thanks to a recommendation from a friend. The Lakeview Lodge was simply awesome. Right from the time of checking in that was friendly and welcoming through to leaving after our special 3 nights. The lodge is extremely spacious, comfortable and very relaxing. I loved the fact that lodge was fully contained with everything that we needed. The bed was ultra comfortable and waking up to that view in the morning was unbelievable! To be onsite of a working farm was special especially when there was a baby calf born in the paddock beside the drive as we drove in and out the first couple of days. The location was perfect as we headed through to Tauranga and the Mount one day, another day to Rotorua and a really great dinner in Cambridge only 10-minutes away

We had a family gathering at the Lodge (grandfathers 70th) and had both ends booked. We had a fantastic time, we enjoyed the beautiful views, and the lovely decorated rooms. The whole Lodge was very well kitted out to suit the whole family (ages 2-71). We also enjoyed a lovely dinner catered for us by Gourmet Delicious. We will be back again for sure!
