For an intimate, unique, in-touch-with-nature experience in the Monteverde area, you can’t beat this place. Although a couple of perfectly lovely rooms are off the main lodge building, the individual “treehouses” are a much better option. Set in the forest canopy, these are all ample bungalows built on raised stilts, featuring polished hardwoods, slate bathrooms with waterfall showers, canopy beds, large picture windows, and a balcony or outdoor deck. Especially nice are the wrap-around floor-to-ceiling windows in Glade, and the private Jacuzzi nook in Eden. You can take in superb sunset views from the main lodge, where daily afternoon tea. Owner Jennifer King is almost always on-site and really pays attention to the fine details. This lodge has excellent in-house guides and very personalized service.
