Birchlands on the Banks of Lake Taupo

Lake Taupo has a gay-owned motel with recently updated, cosy rooms. Three One Bedroom units and one Two Bedroom Unit self-contained mini apartments that come with a sensational view to the mountains across the stunning caldera lake. Birchlands Motel is pet friendly and wired to boot.

Gay owners Bevan and Per say “Pets are welcome by arrangement, as we believe that gay and lesbian travelers often have a little furry friend in tow (as do we), and it’s great to know they can be accommodated on holiday.”

“We also offer internet access for those who want to keep in touch and share photos of our scenic region. If you book direct, you’ll get 2GB Free WiFi per day.”

The recently renovated motel is located just 10 minutes’ drive from the majestic Huka Falls and the Wairakei International Golf Course, and the Waikato River is a 20-minute drive. There’s plenty to do, thermal and not, so spend a few days.
