Ephesus Lodge - The Farm: It has four cosy rooms which are located in a beautiful garden. The farm is located at the centre of Kirazli village within 2 minutes walking distance to the market and village coffee/tea shop where you can taste the delicious Turkish tea, Turkish coffee and experience the world-famous Turkish hospitality. The farm is about 5 minutes to village restaurants by car.
All rooms are decorated with natural cedar wood floors, hand made furnitures, television and air conditioning. All rooms have private bathroom. Two rooms have kitchen inside. Other two rooms located on the other side of the garden have one common kitchen outside.
For the construction and decoration of the rooms, we tried to use natural stones, wood and natural equipments rather than plastics. The roof is made of torch pine and the floors are of cedar tree.
Ephesus Lodge - The Farm is about 8,5 km to Kusadasi and 13km to Ephesus. Regular public buses are available every 10 minutes..
My friend and I had a wonderful stay at Ephesus Lodge. Cengiz and Oytun were lovely hosts and Kirazli is a beautiful village in a gorgeous area. The lodge itself extremely comfortable and beautifully done. The facilities are totally modern and well-kept, and the great breakfast is all local foods. This is especially a great place to stay if you are looking to avoid the tourism of Kusadasi, but get the benefits of Ephesus, Pamukkale and the national park on the Aegean, plus the natural wonders of the region. You will likely need a rental car as it's about 15 minutes by car from Kusadasi, but the quiet nights are totally worth it.
