Yes, it gets fresh u there at 2800 meters above sealevel. But the cabins are well-equiped with hand-warm water in the shower and an electric heater in case the cosy sheets should not do. And the resto provides you with the calories you need to survive up there.

Relaxed and friendly.Food was good and reasonably priced. Enjoyed the afternoon watching the birds. We were so pleased we had made the effort to walk up the hill. The views were good, Wish we had known about this earlier in our stay

The road was under construction and we were motioned to stop. We decided we may as well grab a bite to eat so we wandered in to Miriams. We only wanted a light brunch so we ordered sandwiches & drinks. Coffee was very good and so were the sandwiches. We enjoyed the birds at the feeders while we ate. Great...

We stayed overnight in Miriams's cabins in the forest, plus had 2 meals in the restaurant. On arrival we were shown to the back deck which overlooks the valley and has several bird feeders, with constant visits by hummingbirds and many other birds. Once lured away from the birds, we were served a hearty family style meal of trout, rice/beans,...

We had such a great lunch and experience at Miriam's that we went back another day. The deck and the birds made it a spectacular experience. We took a tour of some of the cabins. We would gladly stay there for Miriam's cooking alone!

I didn't spend the night there, only passed by for a lunch. I had a great time, the view is awesome and the birds come to the deck to eat whatever Miriam throws. Prices are very good and the food is excellent and very good portions, I've been there twice.

If you want great wholesome home cooking, be sure to stop at Miriam's. We stayed one night in her cabin just a short drive from the restaurant so we got to enjoy a breakfast and dinner there. We still talk about her cooking because we miss it so. The portions were big and delicious. Her homemade jam was so good...

We stumbled across Miriam's by chance, originally stopping for a refreshing drink, after our walk. We sat out the back and enjoyed the wonderful array of birds that visited the bird table and trees. Not only did we enjoy a freshly made blackberry juice but decided to stay for lunch and ate like kings! The food was fresh, tasty, plentiful...

We stopped here for lunch as a walking group of 20 people.

We stayed 2 nights in a tiny wooden room with a bathroom. We ate our meals at Miriam's and they were the best of our whole trip: simple, fresh, typical cuisine. Miriam was warm and welcoming. We were there to see the queztals farther down the valley, and with the help of our bird guide, Melvin, we did!
