Out between the town and the bypass road, on a dirt track that leads off the cave road, Soi 25, you’ll find the chalets of the low-key Chiang Dao Nature Home Guesthouse liberally strewn amid a fruit orchard.

The long-standing establishment, run by a friendly elderly couple, has a distinct family feel to it, so although the individual chalets are of a fairly classic design the overall feel is somewhere between a homestay and a guesthouse. There are several similar chalet-style operations in this suburban stretch between the town and bypass but we think Nature Home as being our pick of the bunch.

Spacious but simple interiors.

Chalets, either air-con or fan, are set in a lovely orchard garden and the owners are happy to let you pick whatever happens to be in season at the time. They’re dotted throughout the garden, not too close together and all come with private balconies, fridge and TV. The rooms themselves are quite cosy with reasonably sized beds and standard no-frills but clean private bathrooms with hot shower.

Rooms are an eclectic bunch, with various additions and upgrades having been made throughout the years so you’ll see older wood-clad chalets; small brick ones, pink painted concrete ones and some new bright yellow options coming with French doors and including a small kitchen area. Air-con rooms are newer, but we reckon with less character than the older wooden ones. Aside from the deluxe rooms, prices don’t vary much, so have a nose around and see which one takes your fancy.

Plenty of bonfire potential.

The guesthouse kitchen is officially open 08:00–20:00, knocking up simple but good Thai food at reasonable prices, though during low season service can be a bit minimal. The owners are friendly with some English spoken and they’ll provide info and help as much as they can. You’ll find tour information and maps on the restaurant walls and bicycles and motorbikes are available for hire.

This is a peaceful and cosy spot with excellent value rooms though the only drawback for us was the location, down a fairly lengthy dirt track off the main road around half way between town and the caves. It’s a bit of a walk to either and not the most practical location if you don’t have your own transport. Otherwise this is spot-on and a good value choice for Chiang Dao.
