Casa del Bosque
Our rooms are in a spacious house on a working farm in the jungle. Each double-bedded room has a large en-suite bathroom and a private balcony with views either towards the lake or towards Madera volcano and the gardens. The large shared living room and dining area are available for your use, with a fridge, and coffee and tea making facilities, and an honesty bar. Food from Cafe Campestre can be ordered for delivery to the farmhouse. Our (optional) legendary breakfasts are served in the dining room or house veranda each morning. The house is surrounded by natural forest and overlooks Lake Nicaragua, about 10 minutes walk from the village of Balgue.
There are well-marked self-guided walks around the farm to enjoy. Or you can sit and watch clouds of butterflies, troops of monkeys and flocks of parrots from our comfortable rocking chairs or hammocks, or enjoy a dip in our fresh water plunge pool, play frisbee with the kids in our cleared forest space, or enjoy a BBQ in our outdoor kitchen.
The house is available for rent as a whole-house package. There are three double bedrooms, each with ensuite bathroom and a private balcony. You can book one room in the house, two rooms or simply all three rooms but your party will be the only occupants. The maximum number of guests is 2 per room. Minimum stay is 2 nights.

La Brisa is our largest and most airy room, benefiting from the lake’s breezes and has the most expansive views of the lake and farm and volcano views in the dry season.
The room has a double bed, en-suite bathroom and large private balcony with hammocks and table seating.
The El Volcan room occupies the front corner of the property, with views over the farm, lake and vegetable gardens.
The El Bosque room occupies the most sheltered corner of the farm house, with views onto the cloud forests of Maderas volcano. Surrounded by trees and ornamental gardens, it’s our most shaded and coolest room.
