Best weekend away in a very long time. The cottage managed to be comfy and inviting while also being beautifully decorated. So many small touches - home baking, flowers on the table, really good quality food and decent water pressure in the shower. Glyn and Alli are fab hosts, we will definitely be coming back.

What an amazing experience! My husband and I stayed at Hare's rest new year's eve and loved every piece of perfection it was. Alli and Glyn were so welcoming and the breakfast exceeded our expectations. We would love to come back and visit again. Highly recommend visiting this beautiful retreat.

Luxury & tranquility self catering B&B

We are a luxury self catering bed and breakfast, in a rural setting, just 15 minutes drive from Taupo.  We provide generous organic/free range provisions for a delicious breakfast including homemade bread and baked sweet treats.  The lodge kitchen is well kitted out for cooking and there are lovely outdoor areas for alfresco dining.  We have high speed internet and a phone, although we don't have great cell coverage at the Lodge. 
Hare's Rest is completely off grid and the perfect place to relax and recharge. Enjoy wandering around our gardens and vineyard on our 25 acre piece of paradise.

The property comfortably accommodates 2 couples with the addition of The Walnut which is a separate beautiful bedroom accessed across a short deck.  We have ponds and other water hazards and the sleeping arrangements may not be suitable for young families, especially toddlers.

We are well situated to enjoy the many activities available in and around Taupo.

We welcome a well behaved dog on request.
