The Heritage House & Garden is a Provencal-style country manor located in the rolling foothills of Chiang Mai’s Doi Suthep and Doi Pui mountains. Impeccable service, antique furniture and modern facilities combine to create an experience that’s as luxurious and comfortable as it is rustic and peaceful. It’s an ideal retreat for those who’ve had their fill of the noise, traffic and pollution of Chiang Mai city.
The three-story manor house is built around a lavish common area, with antiquated furnishings and carefully selected decorations that reflect the well-traveled tastes of the owner couple. The house is three storeys tall, with five bedrooms and three suites. All of the rooms are plush and comfortable, but each has its own unique layout and motif.
Guests in the manor house are invited to meet in the common area each morning for a buffet breakfast. The English- and French-inspired gardens are spacious and are dotted with alcoves and vantage points where guests can admire the rolling hills. The saltwater pool features a vanishing infinity edge and integrated whirlpool.
Guests are only a 30-minute drive from Chiang Mai, so activities and evenings out are easy to plan, but the beautiful view and peaceful garden make it hard to justify leaving the grounds.
Iris Suite: A King-sized four-poster bed and open floor plan give way to a wrought-iron balcony.
Lavender Suite: Aesthetically similar to the Iris Suite, but more modern, with a comfortable sitting area and balcony.
Wisteria Suite: The ‘penthouse’ of this B&B, the third-floor Wisteria Suite is accessible by a spiral staircase, opens up to a private terrace and offers easy access to the Eagle’s Nest observation tower.
Dragonfly House: An English-style cottage built of teakwood and brick with a shaded terrace and a cathedral-beamed ceiling.
Tuscan House: A two-storey brick house in Tuscan style with two Queen-sized beds and garden views.
Gate House: Also in Tuscan Style, this cottage features two private bedrooms that can accommodate up to six people.
Guests in the manor house are invited to enjoy a buffet breakfast in the morning. A set menu option is available in the evenings and requires advanced reservations. Cottages are self-catering.
The manor house is on the doorstep of Doi Suthep-Pui National Park, just off the Samoeng loop road, which winds past Tard Yok Waterfall and Patara Elephant Camp.
There are also a couple of Hmong villages in the area where you can glimpse traditional hill tribe life and purchase handicrafts without going far off the beaten track.
The owners can also help arrange jungle treks, visits to botanic gardens, tours of Chiang Mai and adventure activities such as zip-lining through the jungle, bungee jumping, mountain biking or balloon flights.
“I used this magnificent house and lodge for my daughter's wedding on Christmas day. I could not have chosen a more beautiful setting, superbly designed and adorned rooms, or more accommodating and friendly hosts…The scenery, the food, the gardens, the pool, the location within striking distance of Chiang Mai were all perfect.” Sevethepole, Norwich, United Kingdom
“One of the loveliest properties we've ever visited. The hosts have created a unique blend of high quality accommodation in an informal and relaxed setting - they make you feel completely at home. All the facilities are beautifully maintained and the garden is a treat!” Af_walker, London, United Kingdom
“Be transported across the sea to England. The architecture, the grounds, and the furnishings make that happen. The service meets Western expectations spectacularly. All those niggling problems you've experienced while travelling in SE Asia are gone.” Allan, Ottawa, Canada
Ground-floor rooms in the manor house begin at USD $115 (includes breakfast), while all of the detached cottages (self-catering) are priced at USD $130. Second- and third-floor suites run from USD $195 to USD $230.
