About this listing

Escape to our tranquil eco-lodge set in a lush coffee farm in the forests above Matagalpa. Experience true 'off the beaten track' accommodation at our solar-powered eco lodge with no roads surrounding and only the sounds of the forest, birds and rural life. We serve home cooked meals, snacks and drinks. We provide coffee tours, short hikes and longer hikes including a day hike to our neighbours farm, the famous Selva Negra for lunch by the beautiful lake and a wander in the grounds.

The space

Twin room (we also have a double room, see our host profile for all our listings) available for two people travelling together or as individual beds dorm style. We provide bedding and warm blankets to keep you cosy at night in the fresh mountain air. Communal areas include a comfortable lounge space, dining area and two balconies great for bird watching and yoga. Shared bathrooms with two toilets and two cool showers. (We are working on compst showers!)

Guest access

Access to all areas other than the hosts bedroom and the kitchen. Food is very important to us here at Finca Musica del Bosque, we provide guests with healthy and delicious breakfast, lunch and dinner. All breakfasts come with tea, house-roasted coffee or freshly squeezed juice. Lunch and dinner are served family style at our large dining table or al fresco on one of our two balconies. If you have any dietary requirements we are very happy to accommodate you or if you prefer to 'opt out' of a meal that's fine we can take this off your bill.

Interaction with guests

Pete from England and Anna from New Zealand are your hosts. They live on site and are available to provide guided hikes, coffee & farm tours, information about local wildlife, bamboo harvesting, citrus trees and all sorts of other interesting stuff.

Other things to note

We are off the grid and run almost purely off solar energy so we don't have many gadgets or gizmos. We don't have wifi at the lodge but we can provide a 'hotspot' on request through the mobile 3G network if guests have a need to use the internet that cant wait. We prefer our tranquil space to be free of gadgets to allow people to interact and talk with each other. Please note sometimes it's not a very strong connection as we are high in the mountains but it is sufficient to check emails and use search engines. We can charge your phones and laptops using our solar energy and we have lighting throughout the lodge but its recommended you bring a torch for night time when the lights are off. If you don't have your own towel we can supply one at a small cost. Our lodge is off the beaten track and only accessible by 4x4, so if you don't have your own off road vehicle you will need to take transport from Matagalpa to get to and from the lodge. We provide a pickup (normally at 2pm) and drop off service for guests from Barista Coffee Shop next to Matagalpa Cathedral to the lodge, this costs $5 each way per person ($10 for a single person) - this is the safest and most reliable option and takes about 25 minutes to arrive to our parking spot which is a short, easy walk from the lodge. It is possible to take a random taxi from the city which will cost about $7, but they can only bring you to a river crossing where we would have to pick you up - so this option works out about the same price but is less reliable and safe.

fantastic place for all who want to escape the busy streets of the nicaraguan cities! in this eagles nest you'll find all you seek for an unforgetable, authentic time in the nicaraguan highlands: a stunning landscape, a beautiful and cozy finca made with love, delicious food, the best sleep on the most comfortable beds you'll find on your trip, lazy afternoons in a hammock while being surrounded by the tweeting of dozends of birds, and, as the best of all, with Pete and Anna two amazingly friendly hosts who made our stay feel like home. it's a place you come to for a few days but finally want to stay forever!

Words can't do this place justice. It's simple but beautiful, friendly yet offers space to be alone and be peaceful. We loved our tour of the farm where we learnt about growing bamboo for construction and how to harvest bananas. We walked amongst the trees to view the most incredible tropical birds - the highlight being the toucan seen from the decking (binoculars and bird book provided). We ate citrus and tropical fruits from the farm and were treated to the best vegetarian food in Nicaragua. Pete and Anna are the perfect hosts, knowledgeable, fun and incredibly welcoming. We miss the views and sunsets from the decking and the magic of the Finca- we hope to be back before too long :)

Finca musica is an amazing and relaxing space. It is a total getaway from life and allows you to disconnect from technology with ease. I easily became lost in the scenery while I was there and was able to return to my daily meditation practice.

Had a fantastic time at Anne and Pete's retreat! The views overlooking Matagalpa are amazing, Pete gave a fun and informative hike through farms and forest, and Anne's cooking was icing on the cake! I loved waking up to the symphony of birds, let alone spying toucans, hummingbirds, and more from the balcony. On our way up to the house (there's a 5 minute steep hike from where they park the car) we passed by the neighbors, I was amazed to see their young girl holding a wild squirrel and playing with it, and it didn't seem to mind a bit! You'll get a thoughtful and fascinating introduction to the ecosystems of coffee plantations, permaculture, and cloud forest as well as local lifestyles through Anne and Pete, plus a beautiful place to stay. Highly recommended.

What a great place to stay at! It was so good to escape the heat of the coast for a couple of days and see some green again! The beds were the best I slept in so far and it was lovely to crawl under a blanket again :-) Anna & Pete are great hosts and Anna makes delicious food! They have so many good ideas about developing their property/land even more, by making use of and contributing to the local community. The 'farmtour' I got from Anna was really nice! All in all, a lovely retreat!

Anna et Pete sont d'excellents hôtes. Ils sont super gentils et sont de vraies mines d'informations sur la permaculture ainsi que sur plein de sujets divers. Ils ont pris le temps de répondre à plusieurs de nos questions afin de nous aider à mieux planifier notre voyage. La Finca, elle est simplement magnifique. C'est un petit paradis tranquille parfait pour prendre quelques jours de repos. Tout est très propre en plus d'être jolie. La nourriture d'Anna est tout simplement délicieuse.

Pete User ProfilePete is a superhost.

We are Anna and Pete a couple from England and New Zealand. We have moved to the mountains of Nicaragua in search of a simple life and to get to know the land and nature in this area. We love healthy fresh food and are trying to grow as much of our own as possible. We are really enjoying learning about coffee, and all other plants and wildlife in the area as well as getting to know our new neighbours and surrounding communities. We are fast developing our knowledge and experience of permaculture design, eco-building, bamboo harvesting, fruit harvesting and many other interesting things we can learn with this rural life. We would love to share our experience with you and let you enjoy the magical place where we live.
