After some serious researching we choose this location for a relaxing holiday for a group of friends from Australia. The location was great for us - a chance to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city and get close to some small villages and great scenery. Oppy & the staff at the house were fantastic - they took the opportunity to welcome us into the home and gave us a great experience. Oppy assisted with planning our activities and made the local arrangements on our behalf. We visited some small villages, local food markets, hot-springs, a school and temples. The house itself is great - located on the top of a hill overlooking trees and greenery near a large reservoir. The bedrooms were large and comfortable, albeit with quite firm mattresses which not everyone liked! Bathrooms were private and well functioning. The staff who prepare the meals, clean the rooms and keep the gardens groomed obviously take great pride in their jobs and it shows. The staff make the experience complete - they are genuine and friendly. The 2 house dogs are friendly and they quickly warm to visitors even going on the morning walks with the ladies in our group! They are also good watchdogs that pay attention to everyone coming and going. This house is an excellent place to just stay in and relax or to make it a base for some day trips to see the sights nearby. We relaxed and thoroughly enjoyed our northern Thai experience and the girls cooked a lot of local meals for us at the house. The food was awesome - from the freshly baked croissants and fruit for breakfast to the traditional Thai meals at night. We also got out and ate in the small village of Nong Hoi although Im not sure they will ever recover from the amount of Chang beer that we drank there! We would gladly visit again as the combination of colonial house style (facilities including privacy, comfort, internet access & pool) and the excellent attitudes of Oppy & staff made it a fantastic experience for us. For now its going to have to be the photos that best remind us of our time at Lanna Hill House. Hope to get there again....... maybe even run an English class (if they ask me back) .... one day!!

We have so many wonderful memories of this beautiful place. We visited Lanna Hill House last January 14 with our son and his wife , two grandchildren ages 7 and 11 and our daughter-in-law's parents.
The house and location is amazing, the food was delicious and the staff were fantastic.
Oppy Putnam the House Manager was excellent . She spoke perfect English so was able to assist us with whatever requests we had. She arranged our transport, an amazing tour to places away from other tourists and wonderful entertainment at the house from young people living in the nearby village. Our last night was truly memorable when we ate out under the stars and sent giant lanterns into a moon lit sky.
The house is out in the countryside but you can enjoy just relaxing in this beautiful location or visiting Chang Mai and further afield.
We hope to stay at Lanna Hill House again one day and to meet up with Oppy and her wonderful staff.
Stayed at Lanna Hill house with my family in May 13. We were delighted with our stay, the Hill House is a beautiful building in a very beautiful part of the country. If you are looking for peace & tranquillity and excellent accommodation than you can't go wrong. The staff are very friendly and accommodated our needs very nicely, especially the couple that live on site who were excellent.
If we had to be picky I would say that Lanna house is further outside of Chang Mai than we had thought and a couple of our requests got slightly lost in translation, but that was potentially down to a relatively new manager finding her feet.
Would highly recommend this for families that are comfortable being a decent way out in the countryside.
Beautiful location, fabulous house friendly staff who go out of their way to assist you to make the most of your stay will certainly go back again the house accommodates for everyone with large spacious rooms. Toys for children to be entertained, several terraces so even if you are a large group you can find your own sanctuary. The pool is well maintained and refreshing. I wish I had the view from my kitchen as the chefs do here! Just a beautiful place.
We just came home from a wonderful 10 days at Lanna Hill House. We were 6 including grandparents, us and 2 children aged 2.5 and 7 months. Everything was idyllic from the location to the house to the food which was divine. We had the perfect mix of staying at home (from home) and doing trips - all well coordinated by the house manager, Oppy. We will be back!
