Hot tub
This is one of a few places in the area that has this feature.

Our place is close to Taupo central business district, about 800m or a 7-10 minute walk to town. Also close to mountain bike trails and Huka Falls. You’ll love our place because of the outdoors space ( a full size deck with outdoor furniture and barbecue), the ambiance, the native bush that surrounds this lovely cottage. Our place is good for couples, solo adventurers, and business travelers. We have a lovely spa pool that is just next to the cottage where you can relax at your leisure.

Fern cottage was lovely! Cozy but spacious with everything you need. Easy quick walk to town. We easily walked to Huka Falls as well. Enid was welcoming, warm and helpful with local directions. Also provided tea and milk, which was so hospitable. We really enjoyed our stay!

Hope you had a great day on the Tongariro Crossing. You deserve it as the weather was so bad during your stay here.

Great place to stay in Lake Taupo. Location is perfect and the private, well stocked apartment is a great retreat with the added bonus of a nice soak in the delightful garden jacuzzi after a long day out and about.

Couldn’t have asked for a better home base in Taupo. The cottage is in a quiet neighborhood, and easy to walk to town and the water. Having the spa available for relaxing after long days of sightseeing was a huge plus! Thanks for everything, Enid and Howard!
