Black Sheep Inn

Rustic and secluded guesthouse with a superb location amidst some of Ecuador’s most strikingly beautiful Andean scenery, with a New Age ethos reflected in its excellent eco credentials and many facilities for rest and recreation.

Within the gathering folds of Ecuador’s high Andean cordillera lies this rustic and secluded Black Sheep Inn, sustainably run by and for the local community. The strictly vegetarian cuisine, honesty bar and on-site yoga studio reflect the lodge’s holistic ethos, while a superb location and great value for money render it a rare and special place to stay.

Accommodation is in cottage-style buildings, with wooden beams and simple whitewashed walls. Options with either shared or private bathrooms are offered, but all feature ecological composting toilets, complete with an indoor garden fed by the result! Rooms have wood stoves, piping hot showers and plenty of blankets to take the edge off chilly evenings at high altitude. Included in the rate are wholesome meat-free meals, served in a typical family-style with second helpings encouraged!

Guests who appreciate the pristine serenity of remote countryside will be best rewarded here – the surrounding scenery really is some of the country’s most beautiful – and hikers will love the numerous trails to nearby natural attractions, including the vast crater lake of Quilotoa. Views are spectacular all across the property, and its grounds and cosy communal areas (including a lovely lounge and lending library) are great for whiling away a few relaxing hours, as are the spa and solar-heated plunge pool. If you prefer a bit more adventure, there’s also a zipline and waterslide.
