Ditto on heaping praise on Ian and Kate. I literally showed up unannounced on their doorstep seeking a couple of quiet nights and they were incredibly welcoming and immediately made me feel at home. Beautiful rooms, peaceful grounds and wonderful food. The only recommendation I can add is that if you want to spend a day just relaxing around their beautiful place, reading and hiking the jungle paths, you should grab some snacks in town. Breakfast is fabulous and they’ll either have a wonderful dinner, or arrange transport to town, but it’s a long time from breakfast to dinner, and since one of the big selling points of Hickatee is it’s remoteness, there’s nothing nearby to eat. Kate took pity on me and fed me a wonderful lunch, but I felt bad since that’s their down time (she was very nice about it though). Next time I’ll bring some fruit or chips and not bother her.
