All bedrooms have shared access to shared or private living areas – as preferred. Suitable for singles or couples on business travel, holiday stop-over or just wanting a quiet weekend getaway. Interaction is as much or as little as guests prefer. Relax in front of the cosy log fire with a book from the cute library or board game, watch TV ,or enjoy a glass of wine before retiring to warm comfortable bedrooms, and then awake to a continental or cooked breakfast in the sunny dining room or outside in the courtyard.

Evening meals may also be available with sufficient advance notice either by joining with the hosts or sampling the many and varied eating establishments in the region.

Turret Lodge is a fine example of the style with period architectural features, set in an 18-acre working rural lifestyle property with large lawns and gardens.  There are outdoor seating areas on the north-facing sun-drenched verandas and enclosed courtyard with barbecue area.

​​Three warm comfortable private boutique guest bedrooms with quality queen-size beds; and one twin bed bedroom with a cosy sitting area. All bedrooms are north-facing sunny bedrooms and share the adjoining private bathrooms with all modern comforts.

Insulated throughout to create a warm – or cool in summer – relaxing space … whatever the season. A downstairs wood-burning fireplace heats the whole house through a heat-exchange system in the cooler months, along with additional HRV system in the upper level.

Turret Lodge has many areas which can be shared or private. Guests have access to the more formal sitting room (with fireplace, TV with Netflix, stereo, CD and DVD players), sunny dining room/family room (with free Wi-Fi and convenient computer desk) and country kitchen (for tea or coffee-making and snacks) or outdoor seating areas on north-facing sun-drenched verandas, enclosed courtyard (with BBQ) or grounds.

​There is also a fully equipped office available for business travellers, with good cell phone coverage and a free wireless connection throughout the property. Business rates available.

Assistance with forward bookings and local ‘things to do’.

We are in close proximity to Marton’s Nga Tawa and Huntley Schools.

Turret Lodge may also be available as an exclusive venue for small catered functions and boutique weddings.
