Black Sheep Inn Ecolodge

Black Sheep Inn aims to provide a comfortable, educational experience for guests, teaching about the local area, customs & Permaculture, while contributing to & improving the community & the natural environment. The goal is to be a leader in environmental stability & ecotourism.

The Inn offers affordable lodging in the heart of the rural Ecuadorian Andes. Truly off the beaten path, enjoy horseback riding, mountain biking & day hiking. The hotel has spectacular views, delicious vegetarian cooking, home-baked desserts, wood-fired sauna & hot tub, zip line cable swing, Yoga Studio, Frisbee golf course, family fun & adventure.

Enjoy the comfortable chalet-like lodge, relax around woodstove fireplaces, play scrabble and sip a glass of Ecuadorian Rum or a hot chocolate, pamper yourself with hot showers, delight in gourmet vegetarian meals, and after a long hike leave your tensions behind in the wood-fired sauna and hot tub. At the Black Sheep Inn, you will sleep soundly in silence far from the hum of any highways.

The charm of the Black Sheep Inn is in its size. We cater to individual travellers, not to tour groups. Included in the price of accommodations are home baked chocolate brownies, banana bread and oatmeal cookies and unlimited tea, coffee and purified water. We’ve tried to do everything possible to make your stay relaxing and enjoyable. Dinner is served family-style around a large table. We always encourage second helpings! You’ll be part of the family at The Black Sheep Inn.

Day Hiker’s paradise: Because of the Black Sheep Inn’s unique location, you can enjoy several days of walking right from the Inn. Walks range from a half hour to a full day and incorporate several micro-climates. The hike from Laguna Quilotoa to Chugchilán gives you spectacular views of the emerald Crater Lake and you will traverse the indigenous village of Huayama and cross the Rio Toachi Canyon. Experience the real Ecuador in this safe and rural location. Hike through the Rio Toachi Canyon, enjoy patchwork fields of the sierra, be on top of the world in the high grasslands of the paramó, and enter the eerie, humid, cloud forest. Altitudes range from 8,000 to 12,500 feet (2500 to 3800 meters) making it easy to acclimatise and train for Ecuador’s higher peaks while enjoying all the comforts of the Black Sheep Inn.
