Our stay with Jessica and family was very enjoyable. We really enjoyed how authentic and rustic the place is. The view is amazing, and the fact that food was cooked by the hosts (very affordable too!) was brilliant. We really felt like a part of the family, and the tour we had on our first full day which they organised was really valuable. They were very willing to call a taxi (something which is definitely needed where they are - it's a short taxi journey, but to walk to Otavalo centre would take a while) when we asked, and generally did everything they could to be helpful.

Jessica and her family are incredibly warm and welcoming. Nothing was too much for them. The location is as stunning as the photos depict. Falling asleep to an open fire and waking to cloud swirled views of Imbabura imposingly watching over the lake is a great way to end and start each day. The people of San Rafael are very friendly and Otavalo is only a 25c bus ride away. Its a great rustic location for those looking for tranquillity amongst a local family whilst not being too far from the comforts of town when required.

Wow - I just finished spending two months in the Galapagos and I had a few days before my flight out of Quito. I wasn't read for "civilization" just yet and I had a tent so I thought about camping (there are campgrounds in the Otavalo area). I'm glad a friend reminded me how COLD it is in Otavalo at night! The altitude is 8400 feet (2500 meters)! Instead, I opted for rustic accommodations and chose Balcon del Lago. Amazing view of the mountain and local community (I watched a family putting a roof on their dwelling from my window), hot showers, TV and... a fireplace! Oh, and cute pets - including a bunny!!! As others have noted, it's above the noisy Panamerican highway - but I never travel without my earplugs so sleeping was fine. I got lost a couple times on my way back but I loved trading stories with the other travellers, drinking oregano tea and gazing out the window at the mountain while I adjusted to the altitude. I definitely recommend visiting the nearby bird sanctuary (esp for the flight demos) and picking up some souvenirs at the big market. So glad I chose this place instead of traffic-clogged Quito.

Can't recommend this place enough. The view is to die for, the cabañas are nice, cozy and rustic, there's the cutest puppy and kitten on premises, plus Jessica provides cheap and tasty dinners. Jessica was very accommodating of my vegetarianism, friendly and helpful, even walking and waiting with me at the bus stop. She was quick to help some other guests who'd lost their luggage, helping them communicate with people at the airport. She was also very patient with my practicing Spanish! I highly recommend Balcon de Lago, will be returning when I am next in Ecuador.

Jessica and her family made us feel right at home. They are great people! The accommodation was exactly what we were looking for. It was a very quiet and peaceful setting with an amazing view. We were able to walk down the hill and catch the bus into Otovalo for $.30 which was very easy and I think added to our experience there.

We arrived to the town during its festivities, and everybody who works at the hotel were participating in the parade that was taking place. We called Jessica and she told us to leave the car parked and enjoy the parade as it would have been impossible to reach the hotel because of the parade. She was very friendly and talked to us about the local indigenous culture! In addition, her son came with us to Otavalo so we wouldn't get lost on the way back, and he was also a great tour guide! The overall experience was great because of the very personalized service and the personal connections one can make with the owners.

Words cant describe how amazing it was to stay in this beautiful place. This is like no other place, from the start we felt at home and part of the family. The cabin was beautiful private ,rustic,and with an amazing view located a few minutes away from the main city in a very safe indigenous community. If you want to feel in family away from home this is the place to be! The family that runs the home are hardworking family that take a lot of pride in their facility and will make sure to do all they can to make your experience unforgettable. We have been traveling around Ecuador and we truly miss the home but more than the place the family. The Suarez family and the volunteers are the heart of this place. We were invited to a family party during our stay and treated as one of their members. The family also took us on a hike that we will never forget. To get to the main city of Otavalo is very simple you just take a bus with the cost of thirty cents and it will leave you very near the Poncho plaza where the market takes place. We loved our experience here and cant wait to be back!!
