          Hi Heather & Peter Your place looks lovely. I am looking for a single house for my mother and my two children to come and visit the Turoa ski field on the weekend of the 17th & 18th of July but I stumbled upon your lodge and was compelled to contact you based on all the positive comments travellers have left. I have a few questions if thats ok? 1. How far are you from the Turoa ski field? 2. How far away are you from the Ohakune township? 3. I am looking for residence for my two children (12 & 5) and my mother. Can you accommodate us all in one place? I don't mind being in adjoining rooms, but don't want to be separated at all. 4. Could you please confirm how much the accommodation would be please? I look forward to hearing from you soon. Many thanks Colleen
