The Lake Tuapo lodge is a meticulously maintained and beautiful property. Gary is a gracious host who takes pride in his work. Chris is an exceptional chef. We enjoyed meeting other guests, breakfast and canapés before dinner.

Gary and his team are very kind and helpful to sort little problems. Nice room and lodge , all decorated with good taste. Nice billiard pool. Would be a good idea if Gary would propose his interested guests to assemble around the table.
