Fodor's Review

Local lawyer Khun Gin and his wife run this charming guesthouse, which is a true home away from home. Rooms are as you'd expect to find in your favorite aunt's country retreat. Some have large hearths for chilly nights. Khun Gin is a mine of local information, and can organize everything from a trip across the nearby Mekong to a two-day cruise to Luang Prabang in neighboring Laos. If the house is full in high season, you'll be lodged in bivouac-style wooden chalets in the extensive, tree-shaded garden, so early booking is recommended.
