Fodor's Review

A charming and enthusiastic young British couple, Ian and Kate Morton, run this delightful small lodge with lovely Caribbean-style cottages with zinc roofs and private verandas, nestled in lush foliage where you'll hear howler monkeys and see a wide variety of birds. The cottages are beautifully outfitted with locally made furniture and hardwood floors, and with bedspreads and curtains handmade by Kate. Bikes are complimentary, and delicious meals made with fruits and vegetables from the owners' organic nurseries next door are available. A continental breakfast including fresh homemade rolls and breads is included in the room rate daily. The reception area doubles as a small bar. Morning tea or coffee (grown and roasted in Toledo) is delivered to your room. There's a small splash pool and a botanical garden and nature area. The lodge owners are involved in scientific programs monitoring the local howler monkey and bat populations. Garífuna drumming lessons are offered once a week. A

special treat: once a week (at this writing, on Friday afternoon) you can go with Ian to visit the nearby Fallen Stones butterfly farm, which he manages. Fallen Stones is one of the largest commercial butterfly operations in Central America, and closed to the public, except for guests of Hickatee. The Mortons can help arrange tours and trips all over Toledo.
