About This Listing
Nestled in the Monteverde, at only 3 kilotmeteres from Monteverde Cloud Forest, sits Historias Lodge, a rustic, family-run Monteverde Lodge.
We are located in the small mountain community of Monteverde, just 1 kilometer of Santa Elena town, 3 kilometers of Cloud Forest.
Historias Lodge is the perfect place for your Monteverde vacation, romantic getaway, honeymoon, family reunion or retreat.
Outdoor enthusiasts can enjoy hiking, biking, horseback riding, and much more! See our Packages page for some of the packages available, our Specials page for the current specials and discounts we offer!
While lodging with us, enjoy the many area attractions in Monteverde Cloud Forest and Santa Elena town, such as Cloud Forest, Ziplines and the Santa Elena Reserve, natural homes of the beauty of Monteverde´s wildlife!
The Lodge was built in 2005 on 1 acre with beautiful mountain views, graced by over three hundred Pine trees and surrounded by bushes.
Our Monteverde Lodge, a true "Monteverde experience", has 18 bedrooms with private bathrooms, Internet Hall, coffee hall and great family hospitality. Come with an appetite for delicious home-made breakfast, served each morning to our Lodge guests.
We had a really wonderful stay at Historias. It's walking distance from everything, if you don't mind the exercise and steep hills. We stayed there for 5 nights and never took a taxi. The breakfast was always good. The staff was super friendly and knowledgeable. They will help you book all your tours and they know which ones are the best. They strongly suggested the Santamaria Night Tour and it was excellent. If we ever find ourselves in Monteverde again we will definitely be staying at Historias lodge.
The check in was a little difficult because Erick apparently handles several locations, and our confirmation listed the wrong one. However, once this was straightened out, we enjoyed staying at Monte Verde Villa Lodge with Heiner and Ana. They were very helpful and friendly. They arranged transportation and provided good breakfasts. During the day they offered coffee whenever we stopped at the office. The night before we left on the early morning bus, they even brought a coffee pot ready to turn on when we woke up, and some sandwiches. We stayed in the large bedroom above the office which was clean and comfortable. The lodge itself is within walking distance from the center of Santa Elena. We would be happy to stay with them again if we return to Monte Verde.
Great family run lodge! Felt completely safe and welcomed! This location is close to everything, very convenient! Delicious breakfast!
Historias Lodge was a great place to stay! It is close to the center of Santa Elena(5 minute walk) and the cloud forest (10 minute drive). The staff is extremely nice, friendly and helpful!
I will certainly return and would recommend this to anyone who enjoys cleanly rooms, great service, and a fantastic atmosphere!
The staff were very friendly and accommodating. The breakfast was made to order and was delicious. The parking is secure within a large gate though you may need to make arrangements to have the gate opened if you plan to arrive/return after 9 pm. Our room towards the back of the lodge (beyond the rooms shown in the main images) was huge with an enormous tub/shower. There is not much of a view from the rooms, but you should get that during the day while you explore Monteverde. Air conditioning and heat is not needed in Monteverde so not having it is not inconvenient.
You do not go to Monte rede for 5 star accommodations, you go for the beautiful views and unique experiences. There are about 11 miles of very slow driving, bumpy roads, but the cloud forest. Ian Salvadore tours was the best!
The Historias Lodge was very comfortable, friendly, clean and a great breakfast. I would definitely stay there again.
