          Hello, My name is Siddhartha Mitra, and I would like to stay at your lodge from Dec 27-30 with my mother. Could you please let me know if rooms are available, and what the rates are? Also, we play a music instrument, we can play during day hours in our rooms, would that be ok? How far is this from the places where one can buy food, and is it possible to cook int eh room? Thanks!
