Lake Karapiro

Owners:                Peter & Christine Scoular
General Manager: Peter & Christine Scoular


Maungatautari Lodge, situated on the edge of Lake Karapiro, close to Cambridge in the North Island of New Zealand, is a finely crafted, purpose built, luxury lodge situated on a 16 hectare working farm and thoroughbred breeding operation. Built with comfort and space in mind, hosts Christine and Peter Scoular have strived to combine modern facilities with the tranquil, rural setting.

The Lodge itself contains four guest suites with their own private balcony providing unparalleled scenic views over Lake Karapiro. Adjacent to the main lodge building are the Maungatautari Lodge villas. Each suite and villa is individually decorated and feature amenities such as air conditioning, super-king beds, a sitting area, dressing room and en-suite bathroom with double spa. A private terrace and lawn flow to the formal gardens with uninterrupted views of the lake.

The cuisine at Maungatautari Lodge is prepared from the very best of New Zealand’s world famous produce, and organic beef, lamb, poultry, fish and game, are complemented by fresh vegetables, many from the Lodge garden.

A host of activities are available for guests to choose from and rainbow trout fishing in local rivers, streams or the lake is a popular pastime. Much of Maungatautari Mountain is now protected, and as native birds and plants are reintroduced, fascinating walks are possible, with guides or as individuals. The Lodge's grounds also offer a variety of gentle sports, farm tours and massage or beauty treatments. Six premier golf courses are within a 30 minute drive.
