A Waikato luxury lodge about 12 km from Cambridge, with lake views and close to the famous Karapiro Lake, world-renowned for famous rowing and events, is for sale as a going concern business with over 2.5 ha of freehold land. This mansion-styled building is only 25 minutes approximately from the Hobbiton movie set.

Maungatautari Lodge features five beautifully appointed suites all with stunning views over Lake Karapiro and all facing north to the sun. The dramatic entrance to Maungatautari is via a tree-lined driveway of 320 m, through solar-powered electric gates, passing by manicured gardens and arriving at a vast guest car parking area which can house 24 vehicles. The property also has panoramic views over its infinity pool and gardens with vistas of the
Sanctuary Mountain Maungatautari ecological wildlife reserve in the background.

Recently refurbished, this sprawling 674 m 2 mansion occupies a flat 2.5648 ha landscaped
and well-maintained site which encompasses three separate paddocks for grazing.

Maungatautari has operated successfully as a lodge and restaurant for years but the owners
are now running it as a casual Airbnb and bed and breakfast operation due to their diverse
business and family commitments.

The mansion’s grand entrance with outdoor portico to the lobby is through thick cedar
entrance doors and staircase leading to five super king size suites which are all similar in
size. All the suites have super king beds, and three of these can be configured with twin
beds if required. The entire ground floor is dedicated to entertaining with several lounge
areas and a full-size billiard table and adjoining conservatory. Bar, cellar and commercial
kitchen are just some of the amenities on offer with an extensive car parking area.

Heat pumps control the temperatures throughout the complex and each suite has its own
ensuite, dressing area, spa bath, and tea and coffee making facilities along with access to
wireless internet and Sky TV.

The property is perfectly located, close to all amenities of city living, but just far enough
away to feel the peace and harmony of a country experience.
