Your hosts, Thomas and Tracey

Manowhenua Lodge, formally known as Ski Haus was purchased in the Winter of 2019 by born and bred locals, Thomas and Tracey. Revamped to enhance and celebrate its original heritage, Manowhenua Lodge has been reborn.


This includes, among many other things, an important name change.


"There are so many things to like: the riverfront setting; the lavish duplex accommodations; and the superb cuisine. It is one of the finest hideaways of its type in the world."

Andrew Harper, Trip Advisor
