The beautiful rooms and lovely setting (close to but not in center town), coupled with a personable owner who authentically cares about his guests, made our stay at Rustic Lodge B&B a memorable one that comes highly recommended. Upon our arrival the staff greeted us warmly, showed us to our rooms decorated nicely with wood and unique light coverings, and...

Rustic Lodge is a lovely place to stay for your trip to Santa Elena / Monteverde. We arrived after a long bus journey and were welcomed by the friendly staff. They couldn't be more helpful and arranged many of our trips and transportation for us. The room was very nice, clean, spacious with comfortable beds - great value! We stayed...

My husband and I stayed at Rustic Lodge for two nights mid March with our two teenage sons. When we pulled up to the lodge, Jose came out immediately and addressed us by our first names. He helped us with our luggage and took us to a very spacious family-sized room that was inviting and very clean. As we were...

Friendly, clean, and great hotel option in Santa Elena. Rooms were very spacious and had hand crafted woodworking options. The owner/managers were very friendly and willing to provide trip advice and a map to help navigate the town. Would recommend as great option, and consider visiting the Santa Elena Reserve, which benefits the local school and is a quiet alternative...

Beautiful wooden furniture and objects carved by local artisans adorn the dining area, where wonderful breakfasts are served. The owners are very helpful with tips and suggestions. The lodge is located in walking distance from the center of town, but on a quiet road up a hill. An outdoor garden is behind the rooms. Free internet is available.

There were four in our party and we took two rooms. Jose treated us royally and took care of all of our needs including transportation and tours. Couldn't have asked for a better stay and service. In fact he even suggested where to have dinner and the food and service were excellent. There was no TV in the room which...

We stayed here in January 2011 and had a great experience. The room was large and filled with beautiful wood furniture. The family that runs the hotel is very friendly and clearly takes great pride in their establishment I would definitely visit again.

Jose was really helpful – happy to advise and book local trips and travel. After the long journey there, it was nice to be just a short walk from town but still very quiet.
