We were on a "Self-Drive New Zealand Tour" and the agent picked this accommodation...we did not realize the drive was nice and we arrived hungry. The place is absolutely wonderful, beautiful scenery. The owners were nice enough to bring us dinner & beer!..the next day we were taken around their property and then into their home for coffee..very gracious family...wish we could have stayed one more day to see what this area offered.

Room Tip: It is a very remote, romantic escape!

What a magical place arrived to a beautiful view of the rangitikei river. The river retreat was a lovely little two bedroom house with all the facilities a spa bath in the main room. A spa on the deck outside overlooking the amazing view. Very clean and cosy. Great place to get away from it all and recharge the batteries. Highly recommend this gorgeous place.

The accommodation was spotless - not shortcomings anywhere - perfect bedroom, bathroom and kitchen plus if you need it, accommodation for pets! Waking up in this beautiful spot fell like paradise! Apart from the environment there are many summer activities as well - including organised fishing.

My partner and I booked into Tarata Fishaway at the River Retreat and fell in love with it. After a couple of stressful months we wanted to go away for a night that was away from the rest of the world and that's exactly what we got. No cellphone coverage, no distractions - just a spa, an amazing view and the sound of tuis. The food was made with love and little gestures like fresh flowers scattered around the house, petals on the bed and candles with dinner just made it so much more romantic.
Overall, the view, the hospitality and the accommodation was just amazing. We will definitely be back! Thank you so much!

let me share one unforgettable day out of 27 days of self drive NZ country side tour
i wanted to visit this place after watching lords of ring and hobbit which were shot at this place. you need to plan properly and book in advance choosing right season to avoid disappointment coz of rain
we were 2 and drive from lake taupo to taihape took 4 hrs do not be in a hurry drive is beautiful passing mokai valley. the best place to stay is tarata lodge hosts trudi and stephen are very good but do not be disheartened by long drive and very much interior location, takes 1 hr from taihape to reach the lodge on the day of arrival u may regret for choosing this but wait till next few days. book for 3 nights resort is kitchen attached and if u want to cook yourself take fresh salmon and enough food materials as there are no shops
next day book for scenic river rafting with steve - 14 kms, huge canyons both sides pleasant rangitikei river u would like to visit again
3rd day book for trout fishing and explore remotest NZ countryside
on the way gravity canyon is there but u can do this in aj hacket, kawarau do not forget to take good wine and beer fill petrol at taihape book directly better to carry nzd cash also
it is difficult to describe in words - big thank you trudi and steve

Room Tip: if u r 2 opt for river retreat more than 4 book tree top
