“Perfect winter weekend!”
Reviewed 31 July 2018 for a stay in July 2018

What a location to spend a few days to unwind.. Right on the water with stunning views of the towering mountains across the lake. Very cosy, warm house with lots of space for a big family or group of friends. The natural hot tub was my personal highlight to warm up after a long day of hiking! Highly recommended!

“Best spot on the lake”
Reviewed 2 July 2018 for a stay in June 2018

Another amazing weekend at Greenwood Lodge! The lawn rolling straight onto the thermally warmed beach and when that's too cold you can get in the amazing thermal hotpool in the house. Loved sitting on the front deck and watching the sunset over the glassy lake. Highly recommend, will DEFINITELY be back. A+++

“Fantastic place for a family get together”
Reviewed 10 April 2018 for a stay in April 2018

Awesome location and beautiful, comfortable home. Greenwood Lodge had everything we needed for a fantastic family catch up. Great for kids with the hot water beach on your doorstep, indoor pool (with plenty of towels) and pathway for biking. It was also very safe as it is a well fenced property. Sue was really helpful at the booking stage and Tuk was a fantastic host meeting us at the property and making sure we had everything we needed.

“Loved it”
Reviewed 7 April 2018 for a stay in April 2018

What a stunning retreat, nestled right on the lakeside and with it’s own thermal hot pool! Two families stayed here and enjoyed watching the action on the lake, followed by the most glorious sunset, all viewed from the expansive deck. Greenwood Lodge is private and so charming. The beds and linen are super comfortable and we loved the timber panelled kitchen. Absolutely beautiful.

“Perfect for the occasion - a 50 anniversary of an event share by a small group of friends”
Reviewed 19 March 2018 for a stay in March 2018

As a group of friends we have been coming to Greenwood Lodge every 2-3 years over the last decade. This property suits as purpose in every way. We all live in different cities and one of our group lives in Canada so when he returns to NZ we get together and have a lot of fun catching up.
We can all fit around the kitchen table and the larger dining room/lounge table obviously for meals and also for table games. The outdoor area is also fine for Petangue the hot indoor pool can fit us all and swimming in the lake n front of the house is OK year around with hot water close by.
Every time we turn up the house is immaculately presented with lots of little touches that are most appreciated (fruit bowl full, food and drink basics, bath robes for all) We look forward to more reunions.

“Just Perfect !”
Reviewed 13 March 2018 for a stay in February 2018

We had a wonderful moment in that house. We were a party of 9 ( 3 teens, 2 couples, 2 singles) and we were really confortable each of us. The place is just magic just front of the lake and minutes walk from Taupo downtown.
Tuk, the manager who welcomed us, had the nice attention to have fruits on the table and milk, orange juice and eggs in the fridge!!! Just made us feel like we were coming back home. And the hot tub downstairs is just awesome after long walks and spots activity that we had during our stay.
Just one word for this lodge and our entire stay : PERFECT!
Thank you

“Great Location”
Reviewed 17 January 2018 for a stay in January 2018

Great location. Family friendly but not for little ones - very steep stairs.
Well equipped with linen and breakfast provided. The house is really hot when the sun shines directly into the living area in the evenings so sleeping was a problem again for the little ones.
