We spent two nights at El Rancho as a family with children. This is a rustic hostel on a working farm, the owner has a couple living on the property who prepares meals and looks after the guests needs - the are very nice but do not speak anything other than spanish (this is not uncommon in Colombia). The room are simple and depending on which one you are assigned, the bathrooms can be VERY small.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay - the farm house has a wrap around porch with hammocks and sofas to sit and enjoy the view from. There are cows grazing in the fields below and with the children we went to see the farmers milk them, you can also hire horses for a ride basically on the property (although these are not horse that will take you up to the Valle del Cocora which is 20 minutes away).
Salento is a short ride further up the hill and is close enough that it's easily reached but not too close to have to deal with the commotion of all the tourists visiting.
