Lakeview Lodge is a luxury bespoke lodge situated directly above the shores of Lake Karapiro in a private and tranquil rural setting with stunning lake and Maungatautari mountain views.  Situated just off  State Highway 1 between Cambridge and Tirau the lodge is centrally located for visiting Hobbiton, the Waitomo Caves, and Rotorua.  Lakeview Lodge is an ideal venue for family holidays, boutique tour groups, executive conferences, corporate retreats and to celebrate life’s special occasions with family and friends.

The Boat House is Lakeview Lodge’s newest accommodation venture and is nestled on Lake Karapiro with direct access to the lake and stunning views of the surrounding rural countryside. With a luxurious rustic charm including hand-textured plaster walls, stained board & batten ceilings and top quality amenities throughout, The Boat House exudes a truly unique style of its own.  The Boat House will be available to book from 1 October 2019.

The Huntington is a fully self-contained lodge (sleeps 12) with luxurious open plan living and outdoor facilities overlooking the stunning vista of the farm, surrounding mountains and Lake Karapiro.  There are two sumptuous king-size bedrooms, each with expansive views, a downstairs cabin room that sleeps 8 and three bathrooms.  The living area has warm modern tones and the large entertainment room is perfect for relaxing.  Lakeview continental breakfast is included.

The Hamptons is also a fully self-contained lodge with open spaces and outdoor facilities overlooking the stunning vista of the farm,  surrounding mountains and Lake Karapiro.  Four sumptuous king suites and a twin room in the Hamptons provide accommodation for 10 – 12 guests.  This lodge has a modern country chic feel enhanced by a light-filled living area that opens to a large deck overlooking the lake.  Lakeview continental breakfast is included.

The Bijou Huntington (2-4 guests) offers a private escape with two king bedrooms, huge living area and a full kitchen.  Our flexible layout means we can close sections off and make a smaller Lodge than the full sized Huntington. There is still lots of space to kick back, relax and enjoy the stunning views over Lake Karapiro.  Whether you are looking for a unique country retreat to enjoy with friends or as an intimate family get away, you will love the bespoke luxury and rural setting at the Bijou Huntington.

The Bijou Hamptons (2 guests). Bijou Hamptons is the perfect escape for lone travellers or couples, featuring spacious luxury accommodation and all the amenities while avoiding sharing space with your hosts or other guests.  Our flexible layout means we can  make a smaller Lodge than the full-sized Hamptons, still retaining the open plan living, dining and full kitchen areas.  Discover the unique Lakeview Lodge experience and surround yourself with luxury in a tranquil rural setting with outstanding views of Lake Karapiro.

All our lodge options include beautiful linen, plush towels, a laundry room and BBQ facilities.

Private and expansive outdoor areas including a beautiful garden are on your door step.  There is ample off-street parking and a helipad.  Catering options are available on request.  Private farm tours can also be arranged on the surrounding Lake Farm.

The lodge is situated within a five minute drive to Lake District Adventures for kayaking and glow worm experiences.  Hobbiton is only a 15 minute drive.  Popular cafes and boutique shops are also only 15 minutes away by car in Cambridge.

We look forward to welcoming  to our piece of paradise soon.  If you have any special requests all you need to do is ask.
