Sportsmans Lodge is the hidden accommodation gem of the Central Plateau and Lake Taupo District. It has a unique, tranquil character of its own. Its relaxed, homely surrounds has special appeal for fly fishermen, walkers in the Central Plateau, weary travellers looking for a quiet night's sleep, and in the winter, skiers and snowboarders.The Lodge has nine quality, comfortable double/twin single rooms with own ensuites. Guests share a large self catering kitchen/dining room. The large shared lounge with open fire, TV and pool table is great for relaxing and sharing the day's stories with other guests. The lounge opens out to a sundeck that overlooks an amazing garden. For those looking for a private hideaway, our self contained cottage, separate to the Lodge, is perfect. The deck opens out on to a delightful, quiet part of the garden. Pure Bliss! FREE Wireless internet is available throughout the Lodge and its surroundings
