Hacienda Cusin is a dream -- few places greet you with a staff family that remembers you, your family, & your friendly… Why even the llamas and hummingbirds call out to you. The rooms are spacious, a fireplace that is lit every evening & a water bottle in your bed! The grounds are filled with landscaped gardens:ornamental and edible - that anywhere else would be deemed a botanic garden. The curated decor is museum-worthy -- and honors its Ecuador heritage and arts. Located within a $5 taxi ride to the best South American market in Otavalo, stables on premise, hiking and rose farms, majestic mountains & Imbabura "volcano" and lake, quaint town… There is so much to do in the sierra and at Cusin -- it's peaceful, elegant and the weather is divine… This is an adventure you will

We stayed 4 days at the Hacienda Cusin. The place is very elegant, offering both rooms and cottages. The location dates back to 1602, a restored 17th century estate in the Ecuadorian Sierra that remains on beautiful rolling hills and country side where one can ride horses or take a walk in the gardens and sanctuary. It is surrounded by beautiful rose nurseries. We stayed in a cottage among the gardens. It was quiet and peaceful and we would wake to the sites of the hummingbirds in the gardens. The staff were all very accommodating and friendly. The food was magnificent. It is close to many of the beautiful areas of Ecuador so day trips and or excursions to Paramo, Cotopaxi , the Amazon and Galapagos among more are all possible. Additionally, the location offers many on-site

We stayed at the Hacienda Cusin for 4 nights in January 2017. Overall it was a great experience. The compound is hundreds of years old and decorated with interesting art and paintings in line with the overall feel of the place. While on the surface it looks pretty serious, there are lots of funny twists in them. Our room was very comfortable and had a fire place - a fire was built for us every evening while we were enjoying dinner. Also warming bottles were put in our beds. The onsite restaurant is great. We enjoyed every meal there. Hacienda Cusin sits on a large walled property with nice gardens with large trees and lots of birds. Right next to it are stables with horses, bunnies, turkeys, ducks, chickens etc. Our 12 year old son had a really good time just hanging out on the

The place is an old monastery wonderfully decorated. It has a beautiful garden and public rooms such as library. We celebrated there a local ceremony of burning last year characters on 31/12/16 The only problem was the water flow in the bathroom and the fire heating.which did not last the whole night.

Thank you for your appreciation of Hacienda Cusin's art collections and extensive gardens. Please note that the New Year's Eve effigy burning represents and removes the negatives from the previous year. Thank heavens you had a hot-water bottle and heavy wool blankets! Regresa pronto!

I am giving this "hacienda" five stars because it more than exceeded my expectations. The grounds are stunning, the food is flavorful, fresh, many ingredients are from the on premise kitchen garden, and beautifully presented. There is a stable, children's play area, game rooms, (squash, pool, ping pong, and more), basketball court, and other amusements as well as beautifully appointed common spaces, terraces and library. There are fireplaces in each lovely guest suite but there is no tv in the rooms. I emphasize this because I appreciate the R&R, the gardens, nature, local market excursions and the beauty of the place and helpful staff have more than met my expectations. It is a perfect place for a family gathering, romantic vacation or business retreat. The fire roaring inthe
