Guestbook comments from the owner
We loved that little house! Our two favorite spots: the bedroom upstairs, like a tree house, surrounded by windows, alive with bird sounds in the morning, small, cozy and intimate - and the patio outside with a sweet lake view, a nice lake breeze all the time and a great out door feeling, perfect observation point for troops of ants carrying burdens 3 times their sizes. Thank you for a restful spot in the heart of the rainforest!

Tom and Pat visited Costa Rica for the first time in 2005, upon finding the undiscovered gem of Lake Arenal, something inside them both clicked and the spark of a dream was born. Pooling their savings they purchased property outside the town of Nuevo Arenal, with plans to build their dream home in this little corner of paradise. Breaking ground in 2007, their dream home was finished in 2008. Still a few years from retirement they decieded to share their vision of Costa Rica and began offering it to discerning renters in 2009.

Pat & Tom Cook, Owner/ Patrick Hughes, Manager in Costa Rica purchased this house in 2008

Our ideal in a place that we would call our home away from home had to have certain features including ease of access, tranquility, lake access, view and proximity to area tourist attractions. We found that all on the road leaving the town of Nuevo Arenal in route to La Fortuna. As an added bonus, one of the finest restaurants in Costa Rica (Gingerbread Resturant) was constructed near our home on the main road. So now we have world class dining just steps from our door, world class adventure from ten minutes to an hour away and world class nature, peace and quiet surrounding the home. All in all it adds up to a memorable vacation from our family to yours.

JUNGLE PARADISE

  • 4 of 5
This house is a beautiful work of art. The colors and furnishings were very comfortable & beautiful. Very nice view of the lake from the loft bedroom, it was very nice to wake up to all the bird songs. Very private. The hot tub was very nice but took a while to heat up so we only used it a couple times. This house is across the street from the lake and there is no public access unless you drive to a boat launch which was a surprise. There was no telephone to make local calls or internet, which would have been nice for booking activities, other then that this was a very nice place to stay. The Gingerbread restaurant was AMAZING!!

GREAT GETAWAY!

  • 5 of 5
Songbirds and a full moon greeted us on our arrival to this charming lake view home. What a wonderful place for birdwatching, relaxing in natural beauty and gathering with friends and family.

In the mornings we awoke to a symphony of songbirds, beautiful rainbows and distant howler monkeys. The gazebo is a perfect place to begin your day with lake view yoga and relaxing at the end of a fun filled day enjoying sunsets and drinking home made rum.

A spiral staircase leads to the master bedroom that has a beautiful lake view. There is a delightful loft for the kids. The awesome volcanic rock shower includes a waterfall. Artwork by local artists accents this perfect vacation home.

This is ideally located with close access to La Fortuna. We enjoyed hiking in the rainforest and to waterfalls, visiting the Arenal Volcano and Butterfly Conservatory. The thermal springs are soothing in a beautiful natural area.

Visit The Lucky Bug, a restaurant and gallery featuring Costa Rican artists.

Patti and Tom are great at helping you plan your Costa Rican travels. Their casa is your home away from home. We highly recommend this home for a vacation getaway!

NICE AND RELAXING

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I enjoyed our stay at this property. The peace and quiet were much needed to disconnect from the busy world that we live in. All the amenities were much appreciated including a jacuzzi. Main bedroom was up a spiral staircase with a 1/2 bath. Downstairs included an extra bed and beautiful shower. We dined at the Gingerbread a few nights which was right down the driveway. We enjoyed our stay at this casa.

A PERFECT HOLIDAY!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed at Casa Lago for a month and were delighted from the moment we walked in the door. The house is charming, comfortable and well appointed. The hot tub and fireplace kept us cosy on the rainy nights and on hot days, the ceiling fans and lake breezes kept the house cool and pleasant.
The master bedroom was my favourite spot since it sits high up with a full view of the lake and tree tops. Every morning we would awaken to a symphony of bird songs and the occasional whooping of howler monkeys.

The house is in an excellent location to see the sights in La Fortuna or to go the other direction to Nuevo Arenal or Tileran. It is right next door to a fantastic restaurant called The Gingerbread House, where we ate on many occasions. Besides having a great menu, The Gingerbread House attracts many local residents who will give you tips and suggestions on where to go and how to find things. Make sure to meet Beth and Jeff Tinsler who will take you out for a kayak tour on the lake.

The owners of Casa Lago, Pat and Tom, were most helpful in communicating with us before and during our stay at the house. The house manager, Patrick, was terrific and checked in with us to see if we needed anything but never interfered with our privacy.

We would definitely recommend Casa Lago to visitors coming to Lake Arenal. This was our first visit to Costa Rica and Lake Arenal. When we come again, Casa Lago would be our first choice location.

Thank you Pat and Tom!

PERFECT!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I were looking for a spot to get away. Casa Lago was IT! Clean, comfortable, quiet, exactly what we were looking for. The area is close to La Fortuna but far enough away that the traditional tourist crowd didn't exist. Sitting out under the gazebo in the rain, watching the monkeys play in a tree across the road was lots of fun. There are plenty of local restaurants to choose from. We suggest meeting Margarita and Eloisa at their "soda" next to the football (soccer) field. If we make it back to Costa Rica Casa Lago will be the destination.
