“The Cottage was a lovely quiet escape and very comfortable/homely with fantastic panoramic views. Les loved the coffee machine! We really appreciated the personal touches eg garden flowers, chocolates and personal provisions. The spa was great! Stevie the cat was very welcoming, but keen to come”

Lake Karapiro Cottage

About this place

Self-contained Lake Karapiro accommodation with commanding views of the beautiful lake. Overlooking the start of the rowing course. The cottage is set on a 200 acre working dairy farm detached from the main house. Completely private, gorgeous setting for a relaxing retreat whether you are a business traveller passing through or holiday making. Perfect for wedding and honeymoon guests due to its close proximity to The Boatshed and Red Barn wedding venues. 500 mtr from The Boatshed cafe. Cottage accommodation has a King bed. It contains lounge, kitchenette and bathroom. Your hosts Jill and Adrian have great local knowledge of local cycleways through Waikato and walkways (eg. Mangatautari). A short walk down the steps takes you to the start of the Lake Karapiro rowing course and only 25 km from the Fieldays and other events at Mystery Creek. Very close to The Boatshed Karapiro - a popular cafe and wedding venue. Such excellent value for one of our Premium properties.
