Trapp Family Lodge

Main road from Monteverde Reserve, Monteverde, Puntarenas, Costa Rica

The closest lodge to the Monteverde reserve (but 6 km [4 miles] from the town center) has enormous rooms, with wood-paneled walls and ceilings, marvelously crafted wood furniture, balconies, and lovely views from most. The woodsy style is appropriate, as the lodge is surrounded by trees, and just a ½ mile from the park entrance. Ground-floor rooms in the main building are close to the restaurant and lobby, and have solarium-like enclosed glass balconies. The four Mountain Suites are a bit of a hike but have better views. The friendly Chilean owners are always around to provide personalized service. They also own the Trapp Family Country Inn, a colonial-style hotel five minutes from the Juan Santamaría International Airport in San José.
