Surrounding Area

The cottages are located on the hillside above the business site all on the eastern shores of the Volta river. We are between the Adomi bridge and the Akosombo dam which are both Ghanaian historic sites. The area is one of tranquility and absolute beauty. While not actually in the woods you are surrounded by fruit trees and colorful flowers. People bicycle by on their way to work, taxis and cars pass during the day but there is no traffic after 9pm usually. At night we hear the sounds of antelope calling in the woods on the hillside. This is an ideal location for the person who is looking for a quiet, meditative spot. Once people arrive they have a difficult time leaving because they feel so relaxed.
We have three local markets within an hour's ride, boat rides on the river, the cedi bead factory in Odumase and we are close to the attractions of the Hohoe district which include waterfalls, the tallest mountain in Ghana and a monkey sanctuary.

The beauty of our structures is they are built in the ancient African tradition with natural clay modeled right from the land. This eco -friendly way to build cuts down on the amount of cement used on site; cement is only used to plaster the walls to make the structure more durable in the rains. Our facility functions on solar energy and rain water catchment; each room is equipped with a water tank for personal use - showering and toileting. The cottages are kept cool naturally due to the mud construction and the hillside breeze is divine.

Each structure has it's own patio where you can sit and watch the birds or the sunset. The cottages are double occupancy with an option for a 'sofa bed' for children. Two of the cottages can be used for group sleeping and people can also sleep on the patio if they so desire. Private toilet and showers are in each room and the rooms have windows which look out toward the river. The rooms are decorated with tie dye bedding and curtains, each room in a different color; so we have the red, the purple, the blue, the green and the brown rooms. We know you will be comfortable in this location and you will be glad you came.

We have nothing against animals and we have pets of our own but they live outside. We would ask that if you travel with animals they also sleep outside the room on the patio.
We ask that you refrain from smoking while at our site.
Children of all ages are welcome and will probably love the area.
The group cottages are restricted to either male or female unless a group rents the entire cottage.
