We loved our stay at Russell's Mountain Retreat. The house had the most incredible views and you could watch this beautiful waterfall while doing dishes. It is a little remote, but that only adds to the beauty. It's a short drive to volcano Irazu(which you must see), Cartago and many other beautiful and peaceful towns. I would highly recommend a stay here if you are interested in more than just the beaches in Costa Rica.
