Nestled in thirty five acres of lush green paddocks, beautifully landscaped gardens and native New Zealand bush. Tastefully decorated and furnished this magnificent lodge commands panoramic views of Lake Tarawera and the mountain beyond. There are no end of activities in this fascinating region. 'breathtaking views and beautiful birdsong'.. From the moment you arrive at Spencer Lodge you can expect to experience a sense of tranquility and relaxation as the sound of native bird song fills the air. As you proceed up the tree lined driveway the resident sheep can be seen grazing in soft green meadows. When you reach the lodge itself you will marvel at the stunning views and the sparkling, pristine water of Lake Tarawera.

About the neighbourhood
There are many activities on the door step. The Buried Village is a short drive and provides history about the eruption in 1886 and you can view the excavated ruins of the village that was buried during the eruption. You can also learn about the pink and white terraces. There is horse riding a short drive away at Okareka which is a wonderful to see the beautiful countryside and outstanding views. A water taxi is available at The Landing Cafe (3.5 kilometres) where you can take a trip across Lake Tarawera to Hot Water Beach and bathe in a natural hot pool. Fishing and swimming in the lake, the water is a consistent 22 degrees during the summer. Hiking on the Tarawera trail or along the Tarawera river to Tarawera Falls. Kayaks are available.
Getting around
Coach tours are available from the visitor centre in Rotorua. You can take a trip to Hobbiton Movie Set, glow worm caves, thermal reserves, Maori cultural excursions etc., Of course if you have a car you can also drive to these local attractions.
