It is hard to define what makes a place a good place to stay. Some of the most enjoyable places we have stayed in have been really cheap, such as El Retiro Lodge in Guatemala. Others have been very expensive, such as Luna Lodge in the Osa peninsula in Costa Rica. For us, its a combination of character, nice owners. comfort, location and price. All these combined form a nebulous “bang-for-the-buck” factor, which is an indication of how much we enjoy the place.

Hotels in North America


The Johnson Country Inn, Chico, CA [USA].

Joan and Dave Johnson are the friendlist hosts. They were fascinated by our trip and we spent breakfast swapping travel stories.


Bombay Peggy’s, Dawson, YT [Canada].

Bombay Peggy’s in Dawson is a really fun place, a converted brothel. Rooms vary from large and luxurious to really tiny ones, all of them quirky.


Lehrkind Mansion, Boseman, MT [USA].

Lehrkind Mansion is possibly one of the best furnished B&B’s we have stayed in, with antiques meticulously selected to match the period. The pride of place is an antique music box in the front parlor that plays tunes off metal based discs.


Bentwood Inn, Jackson Hole, WY [USA].

Very close to the Jackson Hole ski resort, this stunning log cabin inn can be quite expensive, unless you catch it in the off-season.
