The owners & staff were very friendly and went out of their way to help us out and make us fell at home.
Truly enjoyed our large two bedroom cottage with an amazing view, gorgeous ground, the infinity pool and the excellent food.
Could not have chosen a better place to stay.

Our group of 4 friends spent a wonderful 3 days basing out of La Mansion as we enjoyed activities in and around La Fortuna/ Arenal. Arriving in the rain after dark on Christmas Day after a long drive from Monteverde, we were greeted immediately with the wonderful staff Lucho, Wally, and Maquina to help us to our rooms. We headed right for the dining area, which was welcoming with Christmas decorations, perfect music, and friendly, highly professional staff. We ended up eating here for all our evening meals and breakfasts; it was just so "easy"--great food, service--a serene ambiance. We got to talking to the staff - several on winter break from the university, and it was clear that Leo and Peggy hand pick the very best. After a busy day seeing the sites, it was just so much more comfortable to know we could go back to our own place and have a great relaxed meal. They are very accommodating about just stopping in to use the WiFi. The room was spacious and tastefully decorated. We had a beautiful deck overlooking a meadow and the lake, a perfect place to read, chat, drink wine, drink some more wine (!), and enjoy the sound of the rain and birds. We would definitely stay there again; I think it is a restful destination in itself.

Gorgeous views right from your bed in wonderfully decorated private casitas that had everything, including a private patio where you could sit and sip your wine. Tranquil. Great service, great people. I was only able to stay one night and was very, very sorry I could not stay longer. It was the best part of my trip

My husband and I stopped here as part of our honeymoon in Costa Rica. Although they were almost full, Leo had upgraded us to the honeymoon suite as a wedding present. The room was fantastic - the best part was the deck, overlooking the grounds and lake. We woke to horses grazing below us and so many beautiful birds.

We had breakfast and dinner at the Inn and both were fantastic. We also would sit at the bar and access the internet while drinking great cocktails at night.

Although outside of town, it was the perfect getaway - so quiet and romantic, but close enough to still go do all of the fantastic things the area has to offer.

I can't say enough good things about Leo and the Inn. From the moment I inquired online til the day we left, he exceeded expectations and I would recommend staying here to anyone wanting to visit Arenal and La Fortuna. We look forward to going back someday.

Room Tip: The honeymoon suite over the pool has a fabulous view and a jacuzzi tub. Plus it's close to the...

We didn't plan to stay in Arenal while we were looking at property. But, we changed our plans and decided to stay the night. We asked our realtor if he could help us find a place to stay. And he made a call and arranged for our stay at La Mansion.
We had no suspicion about the treat we were about to enjoy. We were given two outstanding choices of a junior suite or a private cottage. It was like being forced to choose between chocolate cake or a chocolate brownie. Either was just pure heaven. The furniture and decoration were perfect. The bed was wonderful. But, even in the dark, the property was beautiful.
But, that beauty was nothing compared to the vision of the lake and all the surroundings the next morning. This is a truly exquisite spot. I would highly recommend it to anyone and everyone

On a recent trip to CR to visit friends on the coast, my fiance and I made time to drive up to see the Arenal area over 2 days and two nights. La Mansion attracted us as our "home at the lake" due to it's relatively secluded location yet proximity to the volcano and other attractions we wanted to take-in. We were thoughoughly impressed with our entire experience at La Mansion.

Our cottage was the perfect retreat at the end of the day and felt like a home away from home. Waking-up to the view of the lake, the gardens, and horses in the field below us had us pinching ourselves out of a dream.

Our hosts and their staff were delightful. They made time for us - personally and professionally and consistently exceeded our expectations.

The dining-room was an outstanding experience. Our dinner of Sea Bass / Filet on our first night was one of the finest meals I have had, anywhere. Period.

A soak in the spring-fed hot-tub to watch the sun-set wrapped up our days.

The ambience of the Inn is relaxed and unpretentous with an unmistakable old-world charm and exceptional quality.

We look forward to our next (and longer) visit.

Friends of ours who did a 3 month honeymoon through-out South and Central America advised us to come here. And they were right. We spend 10 days in a 2 bed room cottage. The Cottage had a king size bed, air conditioning, big bathroom, seating area ... and the most amazing view.
The pool is filled with fresh spring water and an incredible view.
The grounds are absolutely beautiful, the staff was extremely helpful, friendly and trustworthy. Thank you Gottfried and Peggy for taking care of us and organizing our trips.
This is the best place ever to come and relax and enjoy Costa Rica! Pura Vida!
