Bottle Park Lodge is directly opposite Paeroa's iconic bottle and the surrounding well manicured Ohinemuri Park (known locally as Bottle Park). Our accommodation is self contained is ideal for 4 people ( family or groups of friends). Your group or family will be the sole occupants and you do not share with strangers. There is a main bedroom with double bed, a second bedroom with two singles that can be drawn together to make a double. A fold out bed in the lounge area will cater for an extra 2. There is an extra sitting room to give extra space as a quiet breakout space.
Cyclists will love the location because, situated at the junction of the three legs of the Hauraki Cycle Trail, one can ride each section of the trail and back in a day. No need to organise return transport.
Paeroa is steeped in history and there is something to interest everybody. Relics from the kauri logging and gold mining days abound. Also there is a museum and the nearby Maritime Park on the Waihou River.
A few minutes drive takes you to the beautiful Karangahake Gorge scenic reserve with historical relics, swimming holes, hiking and picnic facilities. There is trout fishing, kayaking and other water sports available in the rivers. Take a drive (or a bike ride) to Te Aroha and try the mineral pools. Or maybe Waihi to ride the train or view the colosal gold mine pit. Catch a wave (or a fish) at stunning Waihi beach which is only 30 minutes away.
If that isn't enough to get you going the bowling club, golf course and racing club are all a stones throw away or kick back at any of several cafes and bars.
Don't forget to get a selfie in front of the Bottle (world famous in Paeoa) just like thousands of other visitors to Paeroa.

For a group of 4 visitors who don't need internet access, this property would be perfect (5 stars). The only reason I gave it 3 stars was the fact that internet access was available only at MacDonald's (which the property manager kindly told us by leaving a note on a blackboard that we found on our arrival) and the fact that the third bedroom (upstairs) was far too hot to use (in February).
Lovely heritage house. Very comfortable with big kitchen.
The Lodge was very clean and well presented and very close to the amazing Gorge scenery.
Well-kept and clean house everything are provided.
The lodge was a real pleasure to stay in. Absolutely suited our needs and to find the back garden enclosed was fantastic for letting the children get some outside time when we first arrived late in the day after a long drive.
