The Black Barn, Spencer Road, Lake Tarawera (Bachcare)

Welcome to The Black Barn, where idyllic rural bliss meets upscale country glamour! This two-bedroom converted woolshed is a unique find, nestled on the banks of Lake Tarawera, and situated on the grounds of private Spencer Lodge. 

The Black Barn is decorated with natural tones, warm lighting and stylish copper accents, making it a truly relaxing haven to escape to. The Black Barn effortlessly combines the classic with contemporary.

A true highlight of The Black Barn is the stunning outdoor living on the deck and patio, with cedar hot tub and bar leaner.

This luxury rural retreat with spring-fed natural water boasts spectacular lake and mountain views, and there's tame sheep on the property you can visit and feed! There's boat parking onsite and your furry friend can come along for the adventure too.

The Black Barn is only a three-minute walk to Rangiuru Bay beach and the public tennis courts - be sure to pack your rackets! Stoney Point is two-minutes walk away and has a play area, stunning nature walk along the lakefront and great fishing off the wharf - bring the catch of the day home to cook for dinner!

Adventurers can take a short water taxi to Hot Water Beach to see the natural hot spring where the water is heated by the volcano, and adrenaline-packed Rotorua town is just 25 minutes drive away.

For a truly tranquil escape that will charm you at every step, head to The Black Barn at Lake Tarawera!
