Winstone Cottage, Spencer Road, Lake Tarawera (Bachcare)

Winstone Cottage, Spencer Road, Lake Tarawera (Bachcare)

With the waters of Lake Tarawera at the bottom of the garden, Winstone Cottage is ready to welcome you for a refreshing retreat! 

Thoughtfully designed to capture stunning views of the lake and the surrounding native bush-covered scenery, this lovely lakeside home not only ticks all the must-have boxes, but is an inviting, comfortable and spacious spot to take the whole family! 

Winstone Cottage has been well-furnished to create the cosy lake cottage atmosphere, while being seamlessly connected to the picturesque scenery through the postcard views of the lake pouring into the large living area and master bedroom. 

This is a summertime oasis with large sundecks catching great sunshine. Whip up a meal in the modern kitchen to enjoy al fresco, or simply fire up the BBQ for a classic Kiwi dinner. 

All the modern amenities leave nothing to be desired, including a BBQ, WiFi, TV and DVD player, a coffee machine and even shared tennis courts. Take a soak in the cedar spa pool - looking out over the lake is a spectacular way to end the day, come summer or winter. 

Lake Tarawera offers so much to fill your days, whether it's a water taxi service to Hot Water Beach, finding a natural hot pool, or taking a hike along the Tarawera River to spectacular Tarawera Falls.

In summer make the most of the local fishing spots (charters available), or brave the lake water for a good swim to cool off right at the bottom of the garden. 

Spend every second of this escape smiling - Winstone Cottage welcomes you!
