All the good reviews about this place are true ! We came in as strangers and ended up parting as friends. Lookout inn is one of the few places in this world that I can't wait to get back to. Sure, getting there is its own adventure, but worth every bump in the road. We were there for Thanksgiving with our two boys (age 11 and 14). Terry let us know that we would be the only guests there. I was a bit worried at first thinking it would be kinda wierd since we are city folk, but in retrospect I am so happy it played out that way. We feel like we stayed over at a friends! Terry and the guys are such cool people ! Even though we were the only ones there, they did not skimp out on the attention to detail. The meals prepared for us were awesome,and set up buffet style. Even our kids loved it ,and I have a very picky 11 year old who will probably grow up to be a food critic and a 14 year old vegetarian who hates vegetables. What you hear about the scarlett macaws is true. They are everywhere. We saw sooo much wildlife. White faced monkeys came up to the breakfast area one day cause Terry lays out Chiquita bananas for them ( which seems to be their favorite, by the commotion they caused)and it was a barrel of monkeys! One of the monkeys was breaking branches and kept throwing them at the kids, the monkeys came right up to us and stared us down while they shoved whole bananas into their mouths . There were so many, we even saw 2 mamas with their babies on their backs. Hummingbirds and many other types of birds EVERYWHERE ! They would fly right by our faces during breakfast. At night , frogs love the swimming pool. We even saw, a baby sea turtle, Had fireflies in our room. O.K. I have to stop now cause I can go on and on about this place. BUT FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER , I AM HOMESICK AND SO LONGING FOR A REPEAT VISIT FOR MY "HOME AWAY FROM HOME"
