Baan Sang Heaun remains a peaceful spot despite being set smack bang in the middle of town.
You'll find it at approximately the halfway mark on Chaisongkran Road, right next to Wat Pha Kham, and set far enough back from the main road in a spacious and shady garden with mature trees -- it's a prime location. Friendly, cosy and intimate, but with only half a dozen, excellent value chalets, it can be difficult to find vacancies here outside the rainy season. The wooden chalets are fairly small but comfortable enough with small balconies, WiFi access and en suite bathrooms. One chalet comes with air-con and cable TV -- the rest are fan but all have ensuite hot showers. A small cafe serves drinks and breakfast. The latter is not included in the room rate, but they do offer free tea and coffee.
