We stayed at the Maison for 3 nights near the end of our time in Thailand - having spent a few weeks touring around. It was a much welcome break. The Maison is a lovely low key place perched between a small river and agricultural fields. The rooms are great, as is the food, with breakfast and supper served in the open air on a terrace overlooking the river, and the host, her cook and her helper (nephew?) are all charming. A high point for us was an evening walk with the host down the lane and into the rice fields. Her insight and details about life in the village were much appreciated, as were the tireless efforts to make sure we were comfortable. I highly recommend this place to anyone who wants something a bit more rustic, while having the comforts of a well appointed small hotel or guesthouse. We will definitely go again if we are back in Thailand. It is worth noting that the rate includes supper and breakfast, but there is no beer or wine onsite. Bring your own. You can pick up beer in the village on the way there.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- We are neither a hotel (with staff, dining facilities, etc) nor a home stay (where one actually stays with the hosts, mostly in very basic conditions in hill tribe villages or during trekkings). Our concept is the one of “maison d’hotes,” i.e. small units in a typical environment where guests can enjoy an authentic more original and intimate experience. ... more less
