We were made to feel so welcome here. Maggie makes a point to talk to all of her guests and takes the time to answer questions, make suggestions and help plan for day trips. We ate in the restaurant every night because the food and the atmosphere (fireplace, music, nice guests, etc) were great. We hung out on the couches/common area by the fire and read when we weren't out and about. The showers were super powrful and lots of hot water. Pacha, Maggies' dog, is around for any dog lovers. Maggie's staff respects her and she treats them with respect in return which was nice to observe. It's an easy walk to the main square where the market is and side streets full of restaurants. Also, it's an easy walk to the food markets. The animal market on Saturday was more impressive to us than the Saturday crafts market. Be prepared for mud and a full house of locals shoping for anything from guinea pigs to cows and pigs. We enjoyed our days there and would not have stayed anywhere else. Thank you Maggie!!
