The creation of Lake Taupo Lodge began 30 years ago when Gary and Shirley purchased 10 acres of wild bush in Acacia Bay overlooking Lake Taupo. Both are keen gardeners and Gary has a particular love of wildlife so the native bush formed the perfect haven for his love of birds. After subdividing to ensure seclusion and privacy they retained the 3 and 1/2 acre lodge site for themselves.
During extensive world travel, Chicago in particular, Gary was impressed with the harmonious and geometric style of Frank Lloyd Wright and was inspired to build in a similar style, embracing the organic and unique features of the natural landscape. A well known NZ architect, Gary Dennison, was employed to design their new home, which subsequently won a top New Zealand architectural award.
Gary and Shirley were involved in the fashion industry; they owned and managed their own busy leading fashion label "Formula Fashions" for 30 years, in NZ and Australia. The high life of entertaining required a large venue which influenced the design of their new home, hence the easy flowing spacious rooms and accommodation - all perfect for the future concept of turning this lovely home into a beautiful lodge. In 1996 Gary and Shirley took the plunge and turned their three storied 13,000 foot home into what is now Lake Taupo Lodge, and so began the journey.
