Alpine cabin

More on Phong Nha

Phong Nha Mountain House is an intimate family-owned place to stay located about three kilometres from the town centre, just before the turnoff to Phong Nha-Ke Bang National Park.

Travelfish says:

There are just three raised alpine-style cabins kept private by a row of trees. Despite not actually being in the mountains (it’s set back from the main road by a few metres), the houses wouldn’t be out of place nestled in Scandinavian woods. In fact, being perched so high up it almost feels like a treehouse. Steep stairs lead up to rooms completely built with wooden planks finished with clear stain, the natural wood grain visible. Rooms have enormous windows that bring the outside in. The combination of cheerful pine, comfortable white bedding and natural light somehow make it simultaneously feel warm, cosy yet light. Bathrooms are modern affairs, with new fixtures and tile work covering the walls.

Phong Nha Mountain House is a lovely rural getaway while still being a short bicycle ride to town. The rate includes bicycle rental, breakfast, WiFi and air-con, along with sweet, warm hospitality for a homestay-style experience. Since there are only a few rooms (with plans to build a fourth), it’s a good idea to book in advance.
