This eco-lodge is in Paxanax, on the east end of the bay from Santa Cruz. Of adobe construction, the lodge comprises seven luxurious suites with lake-view terraces. Long-time lake residents Mayah and Jethro have lovingly furnished each suite with antiques, hand-crafted cypress beds and woven textiles. The restaurant emphasizes meatless, organic cuisine.
After hiking around the 100ha forest reserve above the lodge, guests can enjoy a massage at the spa or a soak in the river rock spa pool.
