An amazing old school bach with some great upgrades. Love the open fire...we will be back.

Perfect home for us to wind down over 2 glorious days of cold mornings & clear sunny sky’s . The Lake has such a calming influence on life !!

Gorgeous little bach with stunning views and some of the best sunsets we’ve seen. The place was warm and welcoming on arrival but unfortunately had to clean up some sticky drink stains of the sofa and floor, kids toys, socks and books under sofa and beds and vacuum the cobwebs and dust from the lounge art and kid’s bedrooms before we could relax and truly enjoy the kiwi bach experience. The bach is just so beautiful that cleaning should not be an opt out DIY feature of this or many other baches. Other than that this place is truly romantic and we would recommend to anyone family or couple and would even love to visit again.

Absolutely delightful place to stay - thank you for sharing your gem with others. Wonderfully equipped - and that seating area on the decking, simply divine. Couldn't have enjoyed my few days of R&R at North Cole more than I did, with my elderly canine at my side. Thank you for letting the 4 legged friend come too. She was in her element with such easy access into the lake. Can't wait to stay again. Smart TV and Wifi - a bit of a treat for someone who doesn't get time at home to ever watch a movie or listen to music. P.S - loved the photo album and captions in the lounge. Made me laugh and looks like the family have had a lot of fun in that gorgeous wee community for many years.

This is a gem of a spot. My family & I had just the R&R we needed - plus a bit of tennis. Highly recommend!

Great location and well appointed cottage provided with very good facilities indoors and out. Would definitely go back.

North Cole cottage has a fascinating history and an idyllic lakeside position. The kitchen was extremely well equipped for a rental bach, and there was even a decent pantry. The lounge was very cosy especially with the wood fire. The section had some wonderful mature trees and a stunning view of the lake. We would love to stay here again!!

A cute rustic kiwi Bach in a supreme location. Very clean and well equIpped. Great fire and wood supply plus heaters. Interesting to read the story of the Bach. Lovely spot to bring our dogs as well. Recommend to others.

North Cole Cottage is charming, rich in history and perfectly located for exploring Taupō and surrounds. The cottage is right on the water and Hatepe Village is perfect for escaping the crowds.
