Meant as a more rustic lodging option for those that love the pure, natural mountain settings, each of our cozy cabins can hold up to 6 occupants. From San José, the drive is approximately two hours along Interamerican highway 2. To access the cabins off the highway, a well maintained dirt road winds its way down the San Gerardo de Dota Valley to finally reach the 5 cabins, each separated a few hundred meters from one another to ensure tranquility and privacy from other guests.
Each cabin has two stories (stairs) and is equipped with a kitchen (stove, oven, sink, microwave, mini refrigerator), a bathroom with running water (sink, toilet, hot shower), electric heater, balcony, and 4-5 beds. We provide guests with several extra blankets because it can get very cold in the evenings and early mornings at the high elevation. There are also have three smaller single room cabins each with bathroom for 2-3 people closer to the main road. With the installation of our own hydroelectric plan we will soon be completely carbon neutral and have enough green energy to heat the cabins and fend off the cold at night.
For recreation, most guests spend their days enjoying the natural setting and watching Quetzals and others of the 146 birds species reported by ebirders of which more than 40 are endemic. Guests also enjoy themselves with the six private trails of more than 8 km on the 240 ha property as weel as other in the adjacent Quetzal National Park. Two trails are along the exclusive 1.0 km of the headwaters of the Savegre River.
Breakfast for $6 and other home cocked meals are available with the neighbor Doña Merriam on an adjacent farm to the North, about 5 minutes away.
Our cabins are owned by an American family who has lived in Costa Rica for over 30 years, so any questions you may have concerning the area or the cabins can be answered in either English or Spanish. We hope to hear from you!
