Just what we needed .....
Posted Jan 5, 2014
My husband and I recently spent three days and three nights at Bamboo Country Lodge. Upon discovering this location, though Expedia, I know with out a doubt that Bamboo Country Lodge was our kind of place. Located in the remote parts of the Mae Taeng Valley, Bamboo Country Lodge offers a traveler who loves nature the experience to be a part of nature. After the hustle and bustle of Bangkok and Chiang Mai, my husband and I took one look around at Bamboo Country Lodge and extended our stay!
Nestled in the valley are over a dozen bamboo bungalows of various sizes. The room is simple, which is all you really need. There is a working western style toilet, sink, and shower. The shower has it's own small water heater on the wall. It take a special procedure to get the water to be warm, but if you allow the water to fill in the tank, and run it slowly, not allowing the warm water to run out quickly, you will have a warm shower! (Which was hard to come by in Thailand). The entire bungalow is handmade by the owner Ken and his working men. The beds are large, and as we discovered is a style in Thailand, rather firm. To be honest, you are going to spend very little time in your bungalow, so that doesn't really matter!
The "restaurant" offers amazing meals - breakfast, lunch and dinner - along with a variety of beverages. Our favorite part was the easy access to nature related events, such as zip lining or using their motor bike to roam around the country side!
