About
Description
Chalet Nicholas, a non-smokers only establishment, is currently recommended by many guide books, including Fodor's, Frommer's Guide to Costa Rica, National Geographic and the Lonely Planet. In addition, Chalet More Nicholas was given a rare ecology award for sustainable tourism by The New Key to Costa Rica, and is a member of the Costa Rican Bed and Breakfast Association. Founded 1992 at Lake Arenal with Beautiful Tropical Gardens and Spectacular birding, the chalet has views of the lake and Volcano Arenal, and back yard hiking trail in the protected rain forest with visiting howler monkeys often heard from the house and seen on hiking tours. John takes guests on a Free Guided one-hour Hike right out of the back yard in an old growth rainforest down to a jungle river with the great danes. It has comfortable beds with orthopedic mattresses, private baths, and plenty of hot water and towels. Many of the guests said this was their favorite place to stay during their trip. Less
