When we most recently visited Mas Cottages staff were polite and attentive, however, we found their pricing to be a little odd and made up on the spot.

In fact, before deciding to stay here, make sure you have in mind the price you’d like the room for and negotiate around that. Deluxe rooms are looking a bit old these days and paint is starting to flake off the walls. But their location is right on the water’s edge, perfect for taking a swim in the lake. The traditional Batak houses are a different breed altogether and have a much more local feel and mean you can overlook some of their shortcomings. With hot-water bathrooms and Western toilets, they really are a pleasure to stay in. The attached restaurant serves up a decent selection of food, which is lucky as it’s located so far away from most of the other guesthouses that there aren’t many other food options nearby. This factor, as well as prices being markedly higher than those more centrally located, make this place less alluring than others.
