Friendly Mr Khamsone has built a bamboo and wood room with two beds at his remote coffee plantation. Though facilities are super simple, you'll be well cared for by his family. He's also a tour guide, so most of his guests include his homestay as part of a bigger trip around the area in his classic Jeep. It's about 12km north of Paksong on the rough road to Lao Ngam. Reservations required. Meals are 20,000 to 25,000K.
