About this listing
Prefer to live in an area where you could perhaps fish rivers, put your boat in a lake, ski and climb mountains; somewhere with no traffic lights, no parking meters, and no frustrating traffic queues?? At the entrance to a world heritage park (http//whc.UNESCO.ORG (New Zealand) - so much is there to enjoy in the spectacular Central North Island, Turangi, that tourism is burgeoning in the area. Year-round outdoor pursuits and a spoiled-for-choice café culture are the magnet.

But Chris and Peter who established the Founders Lodge are not taking advantage of increased tourist numbers. Their successful business is on hold and they need now to find a smaller property. They built their dream in the year 2000 and spared neither effort nor expense in the quality of the construction. Purpose-built; zoned diesel underfloor and water heating; quality flooring and fittings; wrap-around colonial verandah draped in springtime with luxurious swags of Wisteria, the creativity and careful planning in this building is evident.

Tourists have valued the adventure-based activities in major scenic surroundings for which the Central North Island is renowned, knowing that at the end of a taxing day they could return to the welcoming warmth and comfort of the lodge. In the quieter times, our owners could walk the Tongariro River track - maybe do a spot of fishing in one of the many rivers in this famous trout-fishing areas, or zip up to Taupo to a film or for some retail relaxation.

With the managers' flat, four ensuite bedrooms, and guest powder room, off-street parking for guests - this property is ready to roll. Local bed and breakfast operations are busy indeed and due to get busier because of the increases in tourist numbers
