A long summer’s weekend staying in a lakefront holiday home? Don’t mind if we do!

After the hot walk around Craters of the Moon the lake beckoned. We chose a spot to park along the busy lakefront in town and then found some shade to flop under. Rather, the boys dumped bags and scuttled off down to the water, leaving me to do the flopping.
We intended to take full advantage of the lake being on our doorstep and made the 300m round trip numerous times each day.
Hatepe is normally somewhere you race (er, drive) past on your way north or south, being one of a few small settlements along the eastern shore of Lake Taupo. Today though we would be turning off into Hatepe for the first time. Somewhere waiting for us was our holiday bach for the next three nights.
