A beautiful country inn with great hiking and wonderful views. 5-star restaurant, which you'll have to use because this place is really at the end of the road, miles from the nearest small city of Patate. Sheep and llama graze in the beautiful yard. All the rooms (except the very modern new ones are decorated with wonderful Ecuadorian antiques, and the main house (100 years old) has some lovely public rooms to hang out in. The 2 house dogs, Lulu and Luke are lots of fun. The restaurant is extremely good. The rooms are very cold at night and the supplied portable electric heater blew the fuse in the middle of the night. However the beds are comfortable, and the wool blankets of very high quality. The wifi is weak and basically non-existent anywhere except the main lodge. A room with a fireplace is nice. Rooms are quiet and you can't hear your neighbors.The 2 modern brick square free standing rooms at the edge of the property have spectacular views. Overall, this is a 4.5 star luxury country inn and well priced if you want a remote location for a night or two.
