Anne and Kevin were the best hosts we have ever had the pleasure to stay with! What they have done to the property shows the love and dedication they have put in to making Hidden Valley Lodge what it is today. The Dota region is such a special place and staying there gives you a much more real Costa Rican experience than the bigger tourist areas of the country. Make sure to do the coffee tour because it will forever change how you view coffee and the process that goes into it. I highly recommend for everyone to stay here. It is such a surreal experience staying in this hidden gem and enjoying the breathtaking property. Getting to catch your own trout and have the most delicious meals brought into your own cozy casita is an unmatchable experience. Take the hikes and explore the property because it is too superb to miss! Make sure to give Bobby extra lovin because she is the best hiking companion (and will show you the right paths to take if confused!) We hope to come back one day and experience this magical paradise with the new owners Krista and Dave. We know the beauty and charm that Kevin and Anne have put into the place will carry over into good hands. Now it's time for the new owners to have this place change their lives for the better as it did for Anne and Kevin! If you have found this place through airbnb and are considering it but unsure due to not many reviews yet, just book it and you will not regret it! We were the last guests of the previous owners, and the new owners will start fresh with their airbnb for this place. If we could give it 10 stars we would. A truly unique unforgettable experience you will not forget!

Staying in this property is the best thing you can do. Moverte peaceful, in contact with the nature and with the best atention you can ask for. Anne is a wonderful cooker, and she and Kevin are the best hosts you can get. My wife and I had the vacation we needed, in the mountains with all the nature. Totally recommended

Out stay in Hush Valley was very short (just one night) but enough to experience the beauty of it! It is one of those places were you leave fully renewed and nurtured. I can wait to come back and stay for longer! The nature sorroundings and the warm welcome and generous attentions of Anne and Kevin really conspired to our wellbeing. I can say, as a Costa Rican, that we appreciate greatly how our hosts take care for that wonderful piece of land that is Hush Valley. My partner and I are pleased to take the memories of this trip with us. We wish our hosts the best!

I would give Hush Valley 6 stars if I could! It was absolutely amazing and one of the most beautiful places I have ever been. Kevin and Anne were EXCELLENT hosts, and were very attentive and helpful when we needed things. Their property is just unbelievably beautiful. The road driving down there is steep, so I highly recommend 4WD vehicles, although you might be able to do it in a 2WD car with some clearance and good tires The country was so beautiful. If you want to get out in the country, don't miss this spot!!! We used the authentic wood burning stove to cook several meals, and that was one of my favorite parts.

This was such a great experience staying in their charming casita. Anne and Kevin provided everything needed for a wonderful stay. Wood for the woodstove made it cozy warm at night. What all was provided: a loaf of fresh-baked bread, butter, home-made jam, fresh eggs, ground coffee, milk, tea, soap, wifi, games, books, etc, etc. We just can't say enough about how Anne and Kevin made our stay sublime. Kevin even spotted and filled up a flat tire for us on the morning we left, and Anne led us to a place to get the tire repaired in Sta Maria. We asked Anne to cook for us both nights (once at 10 pm on the night of our arrival) we were there and it was absolutely delicious. Kevin gave us an extensive tour of their trout farm. Great hiking. We would highly recommend Hush Valley Lodge.

My husband, Kevin, and I are from Burlington, Ontario, Canada. We decided to leave the cold winters of the Great White North and the hustle and bustle of our busy lives to reinvent ourselves in the beautiful mountains of Costa Rica. We pinch ourselves every morning, feeling incredibly fortunate to be living in this paradise setting. And we look forward to sharing it with you!
