We stayed at the Rustic Lodge for one night in March. The buildings are beautiful and peaceful, and our son enjoyed the cats that wandered in and out. The owners made arrangements for a night tour and a visit to Selvatura for us and were very willing to answer all our questions about the area. Easy walk to restaurants. There...

(July 2013) The owners of the lodge treated us like royalty. The rooms were pristine and the staff even upgraded us to a bigger room for free in the middle of our trip. Our other hotel accommodations towards the end of our trip fell through, but the Rustic Lodge was able to help us out for another night no problem!...

Simple hotel with everything you need, plus Free Wifi and breakfast. The lodge is within walking distance of the town center. Two beds per room, once double and one single, it's all very family friendly. Friendly staff and all the rooms are kept nice and clean. There's also a shared area just outside the rooms with little coffee tables to...

A unique lodge experience hosted by the friendliest staff and owner you will find. They went out of their way to make my daughter and I extremely comfortable, arranging for common tours as well as a truly unique volunteer experience at a local biological reserve. The included breakfast was great and differed each day and, the close by authentic yummy...

The staff here is hands down the sweetest, most welcoming staff I have ever met. Extremely well maintained rooms- very clean and spacious. We stayed in the family room and I was expecting a very small cramped up room with a few twin beds but we had 3 queen beds and the biggest bathroom I've seen in Costa Rica! The...

We had a very enjoyable stay at Monteverde Rustic Lodge as part of a 2 week visit to Costa Rica. The owners were really good at helping us to organise visits to the parks and excursions. On arrival they gave us a map and talked through all our options with us in terms of trips and places to eat.

Booked this hotel directly off of their website based on previous reviews on Trip Advisor. Truly the most welcoming owners I've ever met. Arrived after a long day of travel. The owner provided a map of the area and offered any help with booking tours. Has many of the tours on speed dial and can book last minute tours upon...

As everyone has mentioned it is a 10-15 walk to the gorgeous town with plenty of restaurants and shops to visit. The staff at Monteverde Rustic Lodge were very warm and inviting. Breakfast was fresh and we felt like we were at home. I would recommend this venue. They also had 2-friendly cats that I adored. Susan
