The place that really put Phong Nha on the map, the Farmstay has peaceful views overlooking an ocean of rice paddies. Rooms are smallish but neat, with high ceilings and shared balconies. The bar-restaurant serves up Asian and Western meals, and there's a social vibe and occasional movies and live music. Local tours are excellent and there's free bicycle hire.
The Farmstay is in Cu Nam village, 9km east of Son Trach.
