Enveloped by the lush greenery and fresh air of Chiang Mai’s forests, Chonnabot looks like a cottage out of a fairytale. Housed right next to a running stream, imagine waking up to the sounds of the water crashing lightly against the rocks as you walk towards the cottage.

There is even a swing here where you can rest to read a book or use as a prop for a photoshoot. Don’t worry, we won’t tell on you if you’ve only read the contents page.

As a pet-friendly establishment, we spotted guests bringing their dogs as a plus one, and setting up canvases to paint their masterpieces.

As a proud dog mom of a golden retriever, this will definitely make one of our road trip highlights the next time we’re travelling up north. Speaking of other outdoor activities – sans the fur friends – for those who adore classy stone bathtubs, this next one’s for you.

Imagine an outdoor area that’s both close to nature, and private enough that when you do need to wash down, you’ll still feel comfortable. That’s what this granite outdoor tubs are good for, we think. You can certainly indulge in a nice evening bath as the sun sets, while being surrounded by the lush tropical jungle all around you.

As long as the weather is cooperative, you can even snap some gorgeous shots of yourself in the tub. Or perhaps a pensive picture with luscious forest leaves framing you like this.

Now that we’ve taken a look at the amenities outdoors, we’ll move inwards to talk about what’s inside the lovely cottage next.

The houses are furnished with a sense of nostalgia and antiquity. This makes them perfect for some casual brunches or tea parties with the squad within the secluded cabins. We also love that the bedrooms are incredibly cozy, with corresponding themed rugs.

Here in their attic bedroom, you could just lay down a few quilts and build a cozy fort with your friends while having a HTHT or a Netflix movie screening. BTW, this is probably what living out a fairytale IRL feels like.

Do take note that prices start at ฿4,900 (~USD144/night) for a whole cottage.
