Introducing an extraordinary retreat in the heart of the North Island. Just a 30min drive from Rotorua and Taupo, this property offers many opportunities. Originally operated as an exclusive conference and team-building centre with accommodation for up to 40 guests it was a popular wedding venue and restaurant when known as River Lodge. Under the current ownership, an international Christian Ministry, the property has undergone an extensive transformation offering accommodation, conference centre, restaurant facilities, and an airstrip. The main building contains a fully operational commercial kitchen, restaurant, bar, and 16 accommodation suites, all testament to the attention to detail invested by the current owner. Additionally, there are 3 separate homes within the 13.75ha property. Major enhancements have been made, including insulation, electrical wiring, and plumbing upgrades. All 16 suites and the 3 homes contain heat pumps. The entire conference center has been re-roofed. Thermal curtains, gas califonts for hot water, and newly equipped kitchens in each home are just some of the upgrades. There is river access from various points on the property, including a private jetty with adjacent boat ramp. An airstrip adds a touch of exclusivity, and the property supports a small herd of cattle. This is a magical setting between the mighty Waikato River and the Waiotapu Stream and, despite the seclusion, is just 4mins' drive from SH5. The property will appeal to corporations, iwi, church and community groups, extended families, and those seeking a ready-to-go conference or well-being centre.
