Tongariro crossing skiing, hot pool $195 night

 I liked hearing the native birds sing throughout the day outside. There was plenty of room for our family of 11. Lots to do- kayaking, playing pool, swimming etc and New World was only a short distance away for supplies. Awesome place.

Tongariro crossing skiing, hot pool $195 night

 The house accommodated our 12 people comfortably. Plenty of parking for the trailer, awesome thermal heated house and pool and friendly home owners to communicate with. The house was also close to ski hiring and the mountain.

Every aspect of the lodge has been carefully thought through and it was the perfect place to celebrate a special and memorable occasion.
