This is truly the real deal for urbanites who long for a getaway to connect with our Mother Earth once again. Love the simple clean rooms, no TVs - which was great.

We were on 11 days free and easy in Taiwan. Our original plan was to visit Fairly Lake Leisure Farm but did not get a reply from Fairly Lake Leisure Farm after sending them an enquiry.

Every aspect of the stay exceeded our expectations. The rooms and environment are as beautiful as we have seen on their website's photos. 大熊 and Bill were the most friendly and helpful hosts we have ever encountered. We were very touched by their warm hospitality and sincerity. We felt so relaxed and yet have so much fun on the night... More

If you want to find a place to relax, taste the local foods, enjoy the tranquility of the country side, Old Five is definitely your best choice. You can feel the hospitality-- from the first step you walked in. They prepare all foods freshly from local organic farms--they let you try the tea and vinegar they prepare in house. It... More

Old five is a great getaway! It locates at the valley of Taiwan's two main mountain systems: Ali mountains and Mt. Jade (aka Yushan). I stayed in Old five for one night with my mom during Chinese new year holidays which was a true retreat from city's daily hustle and bustle. Thought I was born in Taiwan, It brought me... More

Old Five and his team, especially Richard and Tai Bear, are most friendly, sincere and helpful, going out of their way to make guests feel at home. Though the guesthouse is 15 mins away from the Shuli train station by car and private arrangements for Nantou attractions are required, they have outstanding concierge services and if you ask, can send...
