Baan Orapin is a beautiful property. You really feel like you step off the streets of Chiang Mai into a tropical oasis. The owners are very nice and accomodating, and even took care of one of my friends who fell ill after I left. The breakfast selections were great and it was wonderful to have a nice pool to come back to after a long hot day of site seeing.
I was traveling with a couple of friends and we rented a junior suite with an extra bed and it was quite comfortable. There was a living area with small refrigerator which they kept stocked with plenty of water for us. And a nice balcony that overlooked a lush green space filled with tropical plants and trickling fountains, and had a view of the pool. And we had A/C which was also a nice addition compared with other places we had stayed.
The original house on this acre + property was built in the early 1900s and is quite pretty and is still in the original family. It is used by the owners primarily, but is also used for breakfast and a common area where there is a computer.
I would definitely stay there again!
