We, a group of 11 pax, stayed at Horas Family Home & Horas Indah for one night. Being the first time to Lake Toba, we enjoyed the breathtaking scenery. The warm hospitality given by Mr Bakker and his wife, and Mr Mark, had made our trip even more enjoyable one. We gave them a call after we started journey from... More

Very homey place run by Dutch Berend and his Indonesian wife. Good service and good food. They can arrange all kinds of tours and transport if you would like to. Two appartments and a house to be rented. We, family of four, stayed in one of the appartments, just behind the house. Lots of space and privacy, large bathroom and... More

I visited Horas Family Home for the third time and it is still a lovely place. The owners keep improving the property ant the facilities. Free kayaking, free usage of the boats and so many animals. The kids were fishing the whole day eating their catch of the day at dinner. The food is excellent and we love the breakfast.... More

From the moment we arrived till the last minute we felt very welcome and treated like kings. The place is truly wonderful, enjoying what is probably the best situation on the Lake Toba.

Horas Family Home has exceeded expectations. Berend and his team are excellent from booking through to greeting and care once on site. The place is truly relaxing. We arrived later than anticipated and the kitchen prepared us a dream feast which was greatly appreciated after a month of nasi goreng. The site is a perfect location to enjoy the lake,... More

The owner berend was helpful in recommending things to do in samosir and good food around. The room was clean and the compound planted with organic farm, fish farm and rabbit farm. The staff were very friendly and made me feel warm especially needed by a traveller coming to a remote place on first day. The continental breakfast was great... More
