Sitting Room

The sitting room is an elegant and comfortable space, in the heart of the Lodge, from which to enjoy the surroundings. The focal point of the room is a stunning Costa Rican tropical Oak tree standing in the middle of the space and salvaged from the farm after a storm. This is a heavenly place to spend the evening. There are various fireplaces and comfortable areas to choose from and to enjoy an aperitif before dinner or to relax later.



Our Library offers a selection of books on local history, geography, flora and fauna, as well as novels for the enjoyment of the guests. It has a relaxed atmosphere, with comfortable sofas surrounding a log burner and far reaching views. Afternoon tea and homemade cake and cookies are served every afternoon here.


Games & Cine Room

The Games room includes a full sized American pool table, chess sets and various other board games that children and adults alike will enjoy. There is a large open fire and comfortable sofas and lots of information about local tours and attractions which makes it a great space to plan your ongoing journey. For those who want to catch up on televised sporting events, up to date news or simply watch a good film on a rainy day, we have a dedicated cine room with Sky TV and a library of DVDs. Whilst it feels remote and rural, we offer Wifi throughout the Lodge for our guests convenience.



Treat yourself to a relaxing massage during your stay.


Green House & Boot Room

Borrow a pair of rubber farm boots, and walking sticks from inside the Green House. A lovely spot to have a morning coffee, write your postcards or plan your onward journey.



Explore the Poas Volcano surroundings, the majestic life and nature of the Costa Rican cloud forest by taking a walk through our trails. Our trails are full of wildlife and you can spot some birds like toucanets, Costa Rica’s national bird the clay-colored robin, and the area’s most famous avian resident, the quetzal.



In Costa Rican culture, the afternoon coffee is sacred and embedded into the tico soul as a daily homage. Our guests will delight with the unique delicious smell and flavour of a Costa Rican cup of hot freshly brewed coffee. At the Lodge we have added to that tradition and included English and Herbal teas, freshly home-baked cakes and cookies. During the afternoon you are warmly invited to the Library to enjoy a cup of coffee or tea and a snack, surrounded by an interesting selection of wildlife books and stunning views towards the iconic Poas Volcano National Park.
