Poas Volcano Lodge



Poas Volcano Lodge Poas Volcano Lodge

Lies between the Poás and Barva Volcanoes at 6200 feet above sea level on the ridge dividing the Atlantic and Pacific zones of the country. The lodge is nestled into the rolling pastures, at the foothills of Poás Volcano, one of the world's largest active craters. The impressive views from the house include not only the volcano, but also the western area of the spectacular Braulio Carrillo National Park as well as the Caribbean plains and even the Caribbean Sea. POAS VOLCANO LODGE is just a few meters from the nearest protected subtropical rain forest area, through which a network of trails has been designed for visitors to explore and see its birds and extensive flora.

The lodge itself was built by an English family, as the principal house for the surrounding dairy farm, El Cortijo, both of which they still own.

"Our last stop during a short visit to Costa Rica in 1970 led us to the cloud-forest area of Poás Volcano where we instantly fell in love with this farm, its expansive views, mysterious beauty, lush pastures, primary forests, and without hesitation we decided to live here. We arrived on a beautifully clear morning, the day we were to leave the country, and within a few hours we sealed a contract which was to bring us back here to live in this magnificent landscape."

This is how the owner describes his arrival to this wonderful spot.

It is therefore no surprise that the unique architecture and design of the Lodge carry features from English cottages, Welsh farm houses, American ranches, as well as details from local craftsmanship. Built on different levels, the rough stone walls, wooden beamed ceilings, dramatic arches combined with tasteful interior decoration, all contribute to the very warm and welcoming atmosphere of this former family home.

Fodor's.com Review:

The rustic architecture of this former dairy farmhouse, with rough stone walls and pitched beam roof, fits perfectly into the rolling pastures and forests that surround it. The interior mixes Persian rugs with textiles from Latin America, and Guaitil Indian pottery with North American pieces. The oversize sunken fireplace may be the lodge's most alluring feature. All rooms are different, so if possible, look at a few before you decide: one has an exquisite stone bathtub. The less expensive rooms, while not as opulent, have a more dependable supply of hot water. A small dairy farm and garden supply the kitchen with ingredients for the hearty breakfasts.
