About this home

Smoked Trout is a 3 bedroom 2 bathroom Lake Tarawera bach. Enjoy a comfortable stay in this older style bach located in peaceful surrounds and boasting magnificent views of Lake Tarawera!


This Lake Tarawera bach is a comfortably furnished two level home. On the upper level there is a lounge and two bedrooms, one with a king bed and one with two bunks plus a trundler bed (the double bedroom is accessed via the bunk room) and a bathroom. Outside, there is a big deck perfect for soaking up some sun and getting stuck into a good book.



Lake Tarawera has pristine water quality and is well known for its excellent trout fishing. This bach is ideal for kicking back and letting life slow right down. Blue Lake and Lake Okareka are nearby and perfect for all boating activity - particularly water skiing and biscuiting! Take out the single kayak (lifejackets included) for a great day in the water and sun! Or simply chill-out at the house and enjoy an extensive collection of books and board games!



Across the lake is the outlet, where the walkway follows what is commonly known as the disappearing stream. Walk further down the track and you descend down a cliff face, and once at the bottom you can look back and see the disappearing stream re-appear. This cliff face has a waterfall.



Smoked Trout is also close to the famous buried village, a fascinating day trip to add to your itinerary.



Welcome to a piece of paradise at Lake Tarawera!

Great news – Bachcare provides cleaning and linen services for all HomeAway bookings. The total price for your booking will include Bachcare’s cleaning and linen service fee, which will be paid as part of your booking. Check out the “owners fees” on your booking summary for details of these fees.

Other things to note: All guests should take extra care on the deck as there is no barrier to prevent falls.

Steps leading to second floor are quite steep but there is a handrail in place.

Please note that there is no mobile phone reception at this property due to the remote location.

There are a variety of lifejackets in different sizes available for guest use with the kayak

Ample boat parking at top of steep driveway although not suitable for a large boat.

    Stunning serene views

    An ideal older style Bach for our family group of 7. The fireplace easily warms the whole house making for cosy evenings. We had lots of fun with the board games provided - thanks for a great stay. The views are breathtaking!

    This Bach has received 5 stars from me because of the view.

    This Bach has received 5 stars from me because of the view. Every time we walked out on to the deck we were consistently blown away. A mere 15 minutes from Rotorua and next to beautiful lakes, the location was perfect. The Bach is dated but quirky. The split level accommodation with 2 bathrooms provided privacy for both parties. This Bach had everything we needed and then some. Fireplace, comfy beds and hot showers. Am already planning to rebook for next year.

    The location this home is amazing. The most stunning views of the lake and mountain. This has all the character, charm and feel of a real Kiwi bach with all the comforts you need. We had a perfect two night stay here and we will be back again soon.

    This bach has outstanding views and is very private. My brother-in-law had to fix the oven door as it would not shut completely. Only one element on the stove worked - two elements had no thermostat and stayed on full - one element did not work at all. Our Bachcare manager was to return with more rubbish bags but didn't ...

    Great place, beautiful views and well equipped. This property is well placed for getting away from it all, or if you want to go into rotorua and make the most of the tourist activities. Loved our stay and would definitely return.

    Typical Kiwi Bach. Great views. Needs a little bit of maintenance but otherwise an enjoyable stay.
