Fodor's Review

You're almost right in the center of town, but you'd never know it at this tranquil spot where cozy cabins range from rustic to plush, come with porches, and are set on 4 acres of birding trails. You need not be a honeymooner to stay in the sumptuous three-level honeymoon cabin, secluded off on a corner of the property, with private patio, whirlpool tub, flat-screen TV, and DVD player. Budget travelers may wish to opt for a bunk-bed room, which costs half the price of standards. Wherever you stay, start your day with a delicious breakfast buffet (extra), including homemade bread and granola. The laid-back German management can provide good advice about how to spend your time in the area. If you're planning to stay awhile, consider their vacation rental 3 km (2 miles) from Santa Elena. It sleeps eight and is on the farm that supplies eggs and produce for the hotel breakfast.
