Your Hosts, Thomas & Tracey
Manowhenua Lodge, formally known as Ski Haus was purchased in the Winter of 2019 by born and bred locals -Thomas & Tracey. With local knowledge and expertise, Thomas and Tracey embarked on a new journey recognising the lodge's potential.
With aspirations to show the lodge some much needed TLC and to bring the once beautiful accommodation back to its former glory, renovations began - including a new name. Wanting a new start for the lodge that respects its original heritage, a te ao Maori perspective was needed.
As tangata whenua, Thomas and Tracey wanted to incorporate korero around what the lodge meant to them. This resulted in consultation, guidance and aroha being sought... Manowhenua was then introduced.
