We really enjoyed staying at the Sleeping Indian Guest House. The place was unique and cozy and had everything we needed. We enjoyed relaxing in the common area. The room was clean and the bed comfortable. Peter was very helpful through messages before I arrived, he gave us advice on how to get to La Fortuna and was willing to book shuttles for us as well. While at the Guest House Heidy was extremely kind and friendly. She waited very late for us to arrive, since our bus had been in an accident. She told us all about the town and where to go and helped book activities for us. She is a great painter as well and we loved her dogs. We would stay here again.
The host canceled this reservation 97 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
We absolutely loved staying at the Sleeping Indian! Heidi was incredibly gracious and took excellent care of us. We came into La Fortuna without a plan and she went to great lengths to make sure we had a good time.
Thank you so much again. We would absolutely recommend this place to anyone traveling to La Fortuna.
Peter was a perfect host. Present from our arrival to welcome us with delicacy, giving us full of good advice in our request.
The chamber was very well, comfortable. And the room to be lived extremely friendly.
A great stopover to Fortuna! Thanks Peter.
My boyfriend and I absolutely loved staying with Peter and Hady at the Sleeping Indian. It was the most centrally located place, minutes away from the bus stop, so it made getting to and from the bus with our heavy bags a breeze, close to several grocery stores, all sorts of restaurants, and the park. It was an ideal location if you don't have a car and don't want to taxi everywhere. Peter and Hady were lovely hosts and made navigating through La Fortuna and all it had to offer a breeze. The rooms are beautiful and the common space is very comfortable and inviting. The art everywhere really adds a lovely touch. Overall, the Sleeping Indian is the ideal place to stay in La Fortuna.
A beautiful space close to the center of La Fortuna. Heidy (his receptionist) and Peter were very welcoming and relaxed. They were very helpful in providing recommendations for things to do in the area. My friend and I loved his dog. Street sounds could be loud in the morning, but I think that could be said for almost every place in La Fortuna. It was a lovely stay.
Peter's place is the best place to stay in la fortuna. His space is beautifully decorated with art and has a great view overlooking the town. Although we only had just a moment with peter as he was traveling, Heidi gave us s lot of great information Ito help us plan our activities. Wish we could have stayed another day!

About the Host, Peter
Peter Ferguson the owner of the The Sleeping Indian Guesthouse and welcomes international travelers from all over the world.. Peter is a world traveler who has explored many varied countries and environments and has chosen La Fortuna as his favorite place on the planet and is enthusiastic about sharing his knowledge of this special area of a special country. The Sleeping Indian Guesthouse is centrally located in downtown La Fortuna named after a little chain of mountains next to Volcano Arenal in La Fortuna, Costa Rica. The wind and rain of millions of years of evolution has formed a chain of mountains that looks just like a sleeping indian. The more you look- the more you are amazed, since it seems that these giant mountains actually are a big Indian lying down. We think that no matter what kind of traveler you are, everybody likes to feel at home. Making you feel at home is Peter's goal. He loves people and he loves hosting.
