About This Listing
Unique cultural experience on permaculture orchard and farm. Our quiet and rural cabins have many features: electricity, hammocks, fans. Free WiFi, large swimming pond, full kitchen, farm-grown food, and bikes for use. Families and pets welcome.
We are a sharing community on a self-sustainable farm 20 km. outside of Chiangmai city.
We are an international community on an Akha traditional permacultural family farm. Offering five secluded cabins tucked away in the midst of an organic orchard. Our farm is located in Doi Saket, 25km's north of Chiang Mai and is accessible via public transport. 3 meals per day are included, veg/non veg option and fresh organic coffee from our farm.
The secluded nature of this cabin lends atmosphere to a meditative tranquil setting. It is a perfect place to sit back with a good book, write letters and be creative.
Our cabin is made totally of natural materials, bamboo walls/floor/furniture, grass roof and it has electricity. Free internet is also available. Only a single mattress is pictured but we can supply another mattress for a second person.
We have a natural swimming pond, two solar hot tubs, large herbal sauna and a large cold dipping pool.
Shared bathroom and 2 toilets. There is also an open kitchen on the land available.
We grow our own seasonal teas and coffee.
Massage in your cabin is also available on request.
We have mountain bikes available for use.
Many accessible rural markets and restaurants are close by as well as a beautiful Buddhist temple which is open to all. There are a lot of local hill tribe people around that you can mingle with as well.
Chiang Mai City is only 25km's away and the main highway is 6km's away. Public transport is available from early morn to early evening.
We look forward to meeting new interesting people.

Guests have access to kitchen, and all the fresh organic food grown on the farm for free. The shower and toilet is shared. Information about permaculture is available to guests.
Interaction with Guests
We live on the farm during the week and come into town for shopping and family visits.
As remote as we are, markets and hot springs are close by. A Lahu hilltribe village is 150 meters from our farm. Temples are nearby too.
We have a couple of mountain bikes that you can use to go into town.
Respect the land. No candles or smoking inside the cabin. Happiness is a requirement!
Had a wonderful stay at Willow and Buti's farm. Getting there is straightforward from the instructions provided. I stayed in the "honeymoon" hut with an attached bathroom. It was clean and cozy. Atmosphere on the farm cannot be beat- met lots of wonderful travelers from around the world and shared meals and stories with them. If you're looking to get away from the city for a few days, this is the place to do it!
Buti and Willow's Farm was a great experience. 5 cabins on a secluded farm near Doi Saket. When I arrived, I was told that I would wish I had booked for longer and by the end of my first day, I definitely wished I had. Everyone was open and insightful and not afraid of a deep conversation. A truly warm environment. Perhaps between your travels and mine, we'll meet again. Thanks for creating an unforgettable place and for the unforgettable time, Willow and Buti!
Both Buti and Willow were very welcoming. Willow is a great conversationalist who can talk about just anything. His wisdom and positivity shines during conversations. Their farm is a very natural, interesting place and has just about anything you need. I also was able to meet some friendly and wonderful guests at the farm.
This stay was definitely very unique, one of a kind experience for me as such a spoilt city person, but I really really enjoyed it.
I need to mention that you are not expecting a five-star hotel room and have everything around you modernized. You'll need to go out of your comfort zone if you're used to getting spoilt by everything the modernized way. :) If you happen to be a creative and handy person, you might be a great fit for this place as you might be able to help build or learn a few things around the farm. I tried to learn a couple of things at the farm and it was certainly an interesting and rewarding experience. I look forward to my next stay!
My boyfriend and I had the most amazing and interesting experience staying at Butis and Willows lovely farm.
The accommodation is just like in the pictures, very cozy and elemental. The farm itself is very small with lots of fruit and herbs growing and there is always something interesting going on. The people we met were amazing,of course Buti and Willow themselves but also all the volunteers who helped working on the farm and the other guests. The interaction with everbody was very casual and we immediately felt comfortable.
The area is absolutely worth seeing. We explored the national parks and towns near by and of course chiang mai by motorbike which was great! There is also alot of beautiful nature to see around the farm.
If you are looking for a fun, close to nature, exotic and relaxing vacation this is the place to stay. We loved it and hope to be back one day!
This wonderful spot, this piece of community here is unique. This farm like setting, with straw roofed cabanas, is set in nature, You have wonderful sounds and the presence of nature to soothe and disconnect you from the commercial world you may live in. Buti and Willow, your hosts, will provide you with a safe, comfortable and terrific eating experience every day. Friends come by from time to time and wonderful conversations abound. Also, close enough to a city and 2 weekly markets if you need any incidentals. Stay as long as you can as this special place will feed you in more ways than you can know.
Such a wonderful and unique experience! Awesome farm and awesome people...can't wait to go back:)
