Just steps from the lakefront and with views to take your breath away, this four-bedroom Kuratau bach is an ideal spot for two families to come together on a Lake Taupo getaway. Welcome to Lakefront Lodge!

The simple and cosy open-plan living space here at Lakefront Lodge seamlessly transitions onto a generous sized entertaining deck, offering you plenty of options to relax and enjoy lakeside living. This is the place for enjoying the sun, watching the kids as they play on the lawn below, or entertaining family and friends with a relaxed BBQ meal. There's an outdoor table and seating for 12 people!

Furnished with your comfort in mind, this bach is drenched in sunlight right up to its vaulted ceilings thanks to large sliding glass doors and large picture windows. On a hot summer day, open everything up to let the cool lake breeze flow through, or nestle into a bean bag on the deck and soak up the sunshine.

A cosy wood-burning fireplace keeps you toasty warm in the winter, and offers a great centrepiece to gather around for a good chat, or perhaps a family challenge of your favourite board game! A basic Sky TV package is on offer if you feel like a bit of light-hearted, effortless entertainment.

Lakefront Lodge offers a well-equipped kitchen with plenty of storage to bring all your favourite holiday treats from home. There's even an additional fridge in the hallway, ideal for ensuring there's always a cold drink available.

Spread across three levels, this lakefront bach has four bedrooms with bedding configurations to suit any group. The main bathroom offers a shower-over-bath to cater for all ages, and the master bedroom has an additional ensuite toilet for added convenience.

The private, gated front lawn here at Lakefront Lodge gives direct access to the lakefront reserve. You can enjoy swimming, kayaking, boating and fishing right on your doorstep! It's also just a 100m walk to the tennis courts and nearby lakeside walking tracks.

The local store and the coffee shop are a short five-minute drive away. For day trips, you are less than an hour from Taupo town centre, just over an hour from Ohakune, and 45 minutes to the Whakapapa Ski Resort.

Settle in for a getaway just steps from the water - Lakefront Lodge awaits!

Fabulous location, didn’t need to go anywhere! Basic Bach but all we needed 😀

Stayed October 2021

A comfortable property in a great location. Its a traditional bach, and right on the lake. Kitchen has everything you need, the sleeping arrangement suits for multiple generations or families. Living room floor beds could do with upgrading, very squeaky and old. Good drive on access for vehicles and boats.

Bachcare replied

We were so delighted to hear that you enjoyed your stay at this wonderfully located bach and happy to let you know that the beds have now been upgraded!

Stayed March 2021

Excellent lakefront location. Facilities were average but the beds were all only doubles, very old and uncomfortable

Bachcare replied

Thank you for your review Linda and we are happy to hear you enjoyed the great location of Lakefront Lodge. We are sorry to hear you didn’t enjoy the beds; we've spoken to the property owners and they will be upgrading these shortly!

Stayed January 2021

Stunning location right on the beach front with privacy behind a tall hedge that doesn't hide the view. I doubt you could find a better location in the Kuratau/Omori area. It will cop the Northerly a little but is very sheltered in a NW or Westerly & Southerly. Walking straight down to the water is such a benefit and being able to watch kids swimming would be a real advantage for parents. The photos are a good indicator of the house but for those that have never stayed in a Lockwood, be advised that these old gems creak and bang as they cool down at night and warm up in the morning, especially so when you start to move around first thing in the morning. Loud enough to wake people so take a set of earplugs! This is very typical of all the lockwoods we've stayed in and consider it part of the Bach charm these provide. Beds are small. old and uncomfortable (for us at least) but no worse than many other baches we'ver rented. Plenty of off-street parking, huge lawn for activities. All up, we've stayed in nicer, more modern and better equipped houses in the area but this property makes up for any shortcomings with its fantastic location, huge deck, views etc and we''ll certainly try to book this place again ahead of anything else.
