Made to feel welcome.
Such a relaxing environment.
Food was delicous.

I stayed and did the peak trail, easy to get to from the guest house. Easily done from this location without a guide, I was there for sunrise.

View from one of Jay's Coffee Farms. Highly reccommend the tours
Amazing view from the dinner table
Did a midnight hike to Blue Mt Peak and got a dope sunrise
Letting the clothes dry out in the crisp, clean mountain air
Hi. I am thinking about doing the hike to the peak. How difficult is it? Thanks. The guesthouse sounds awesome!
Sorry to ask again, but are there different trails with different levels? You say an experienced hiker the difficulty level is 7 out of 10 and a casual walker it is 4 out of 10. Am I understating that if I am a a causal walker I can chose a less difficult hike? Thanks. Sorry for my confusion.
