Description

The space

Foresters Lodge is in the village of Blackman Eddy which is at mile 57 on the Western Highway. The Cabana built by local Mennonites is on sixteen acres which is situated on a hill with panoramic views of Barton Creek, and Spanish Lookout.

The five horses on the property graze around the cabana freely during the day. The deck is a great place to enjoy your morning cup of tea and enjoy the singing birds and sunsets in the evening. There are Mango, Sour sop, Custard Apple, Avocado, Coconut, Papaya and Limes trees on the property. All of these fruit trees bring in animals and birds which make the deck a great spot for bird watching. You may be able to see a Toucan or a Gibnut at dawn or dusk. There are dogs on the property who are all friendly and are in the owners fenced in area.

Foresters Lodge is centrally located in Cayo District close to the following attractions

The neighborhood is quiet, there are a couple of restaurants nearby to eat, prices are reasonable and the food is good. San Ignacio and Belmopan have good places to eat too. During the day you can go to Spanish Lookout but nowhere is open in the evening after 5pm except friday and saturday nights.

Guest access

The cabana is self catering, no sharing with other guests, fully equipped.

Theres WiFi available, 16 acres to enjoy, if you like horses to ride. Beautiful views. Staff to help with all your needs. Washing facilities. Access to kitchen. Huge verandah to relax.

If you do not have a vehicle I often lend my pickup for guests to go eat in the evening to local restaurant.

Fresh eggs from my hens.

Absolutely no smoking indoors.

Interaction with guests

A little, I always check to see if all is well or if there is anything needed each day. If guests want the interaction I will stick around although I dont like to be too pushy, I feel that they want to do their own thing and enjoy their time on their own then you are welcome to enjoy the resort.

The neighborhood

Breezy, quiet most of the time, lovely sunsets.
Beautiful at night, you can see all the stars,moonlit nights are particularly special. I can see why the Maya placed their pyramids in such a way to see all that beauty.

Getting around

Busses are every half an hour except sundays.
If you haven't got a vehicle and don't want to cook, there are nice places to eat and I will take you there no problem.

Great location (if wanting to be central to Belmopan, St Ignacio, & Spanish Lookout). The house has everything needed, frig, ac (in bedroom), and a great view. Would definately stay again. Audrey's dogs are super sweet!

We really enjoyed our stay at Forrester's Lodges! The property is gorgeous and was within a 30 min drive to San Ignacio, ATM, and Mountain Pine Ridge Forest. Audrey has a restaurant now and there is a store right down the road where you can get provisions. The cabana itself had everything we needed to do our own cooking and was very clean with a nice hot shower! On our second day we even had "maid service" which we didn't know about, but it was a nice surprise as they washed our dishes and made our beds after we ran out in a hurry that morning.

This place is dream, so much so that we've decided to stay in Belize on a semi permanent basis. Audrey, and her staff, immediately felt like family, and her property like home.

Audrey was awesome. Because her farm is a bit away from restaurants, she drove us a couple of times to the store and nearby restaurants. She was very helpful in helping us decide how to spend our time there, recommending the ATM cave tour which was spectacular! Highly recommended staying here.

Audrey User Profile

I originally was born in Belize but grew up in the U.K. and returned to Belize in 2001 to start Foresters Lodge. I love animals and have 5 horses that I rescued,cat, dogs, birds and all other wildlife that might wander on my 15 acres. I love adventure and like to be outdoors turning my hands to something, I almost finish building a stone bathroom with my workers, hate paperwork and being at a desk. I also practice martial arts and enjoy travelling around Central America Competing and Judging events. I can assist you with the local attractions and adventures in the area. I chose to live in this area due to the abundance in flora and fauna, the tranquility, stress free lifestyle and the temperate weather. I invite you to Foresters Lodge to experience the Cayo District and everything Belize has to offer.
Some tours I can take you there instead of booking in town which is more expensive. cahal Pech, Xunantunich, Zoo, cave tubing, blue hole etc. the only one I can't do for you is the ATM ,that needs a guide.
I am very easy going and placid person, we shall get along like a house on fire, when you get here it will be as if we have always known each other. I would like to
travel more myself, Australia, New Zealand and maybe Africa but which part I don't know yet, Kenya sounds good.
When you stay with us we go all out to please you, you will be taken care of and most of all our prices are great.
There is however a 9 percent charge on the room which goes to the belize tourist board, this is included in the price.
