A classic cottage, a cosy home and a charming little lakefront retreat all rolled into one. The Lake Bach is ready to host your holiday.

This two-bedroom Ngongataha holiday home sits right alongside the Western edge of Lake Rotorua overlooking the water, and is surrounded by a generous sheltered section.

Come summer or winter, The Lake Bach captures the essence of a fuss-free traditional holiday by the water. With rich wood panelling throughout and vintage style furnishings, this home has a real log cabin vibe, tying in perfectly with its surroundings.

From the combined kitchen and dining room you can look through the lounge and out the ranch slider, straight across to the water. So whether you're soaking up the sun on the sundeck or having brunch with the family, there is a view to help inspire the day's activities.

The large lawn area is not only perfect for backyard cricket, shaded picnics under the trees, or a good place for the kids to run around, it's also ideal if you plan to bring and park the boat. The local boat ramp is in Reem Street; just 2 minutes drive away.

For some local fishing, you must visit Waiteti Stream, a 2-minute walk. When you get home, throw the fresh catch on the BBQ!

The local Ngongotaha Village is nearby and offers a grocery store, a couple of cafes, a liquor store and even a butchery!

This region is part of the adventure capital of the North Island, and there are plenty of exciting places to check out, such as Zorb, Zipline, Rainbow Springs, or the Redwoods Forest.

A calming lakefront holiday awaits here at The Lake Bach!

What a wonderful little bach! Beautiful views, very quiet and really comfortable. The place was spotless and very well equipped, everything we needed was there. A heater in every room plus a heat pump in the dining room. Clear instructions as to lockbox code etc. Will come again.

Lovely and homely, everything you need provided, you get much more than you would in a motel or hotel.
