Architecturally designed Rototaha Lodge is only 30mins from Rotorua in New Zealands North Island. Built specifically to cater for guests who enjoy privacy and natural beauty. Although not close enough to see or hear them your hosts Hugh and Mandy Collins can arrange everything you might require from a three course meal or a picnic on the lake to fly fishing and scenic helicopter flights. Ask Mandy to prepare your meals for you (she will endeavour to use produce grown from her own extensive gardens or sourced from local farmers and growers) or head out into the gardens to pick your own herbs and seasonal vegetable to cook your own....Architecturally designed Rototaha Lodge is only 30mins from Rotorua in New Zealands North Island.

About the neighbourhood
Rototaha Lodge is well located about half-way between Rotorua and Taupo. Lake Ohakuri is one of around 17 lakes within the region. It is surrounded by rural agricultural farming and forestry, and is very peaceful and tranquil. It is easy to access local tourism attractions, (spa facilities, mountain biking, and much more) from a few minutes to a half-hour drive, or simply relax and enjoy the natural surroundings, with trout fishing on the doorstep.
