This rustic new resort has wonderful and spacious gardens and walkways, and is tucked away in an enticing rural setting with plenty of walkways and grounds to explore, close to a sheep farm also. Lots of wood and greenery, and very private. The very large room and bathroom were quite comfortable, and there was even free coffee. Our room had a large deck and overlooked a nice pond in the middle of the resort. I only wish we could have stayed for long. This is not a "swanky" place with a big pool or the like, but an excellent country setting, intimate, romantic, and serene.
The resort has a few nice local Thai restaurants and stores (including one where everything costs only 20 baht -- about 67 cents, which was delightful) a short walk away, but is a bit of a distance from the downtown area of Phrae, so if closeness to the town center is your main priority, this is not the best choice. We had a car so no problem getting around. But if a secluded and enjoyable setting, at a fantastic value, only U.S. $15 total, is more to your liking, we would highly recommend this hotel, including my Thai girlfriend who has lived in this town for a long time.
