  • Pet Friendly Inside Welcome


What a view! Resting among the native bush and right on the lakeside, you can almost hear rainbow trout jumping in the water at sunrise - Welcome to Trouts About.

There's nothing better than arriving home from a day of exploring to a subtly lit and peaceful space. Imagine firing up the BBQ, pouring a cold drink, unwinding from the hustle and bustle of life and all with an unforgettable backdrop.

In the morning wake up to the dawn chorus of native birds, take advantage of how close you are to lake and head out early for some fishing. Better yet, sleep for as long as you need to, and take the chance to replenish your reserves.

The Cottage has a fully equipped kitchen, lounge, 3 bedrooms and a spacious sundeck to make the most the summer outdoor lifestyle.

It is a very peaceful area, great for Trout fishing, swimming or water skiing - this lovely lakeside lookout is close to many popular attractions such as the Buried Village, the Landing Cafe and Historic Maori Rock drawings.

Enjoy the lake and make this holiday count - Trouts About!

Good location with lovely walks and a beautiful view of the lake.

Bach care was easy to deal with and fast confirmation and contact. The bach was exactly what was expected with a few hidden extras. Everything our family needed while away and the scenery was peaceful and view from deck was to die for. Will be booking again. Loved it!

Very comfortable, well located and well appointed house. We loved being able to walk down the steps to the lake and track. It was so quiet and peaceful with very few people about. WIFI would be a bonus here, but the big selection of games were great to keep us entertained.
