Because Rivertrees Inn Lodge grew in stages, each cottage was designed with individual thought and care, and furnished with unique attention. The inn’s design makes the most of the riverine nooks and bends, and clearings in leafy groves, to grant each dwelling its own sense of privacy and peace.
With all the style and understated elegance of the owner’s private pied-a-terre, the River House is well suited to those with discerning taste, and who value secluded space and exclusivity. Two ample bedrooms and a lavish living room can comfortably host a group of four, while the wrap-around veranda and its river views offer a peaceful setting for repose.
The Farm House
The Farm House was the heart of the coffee estate before it first became a B&B, and still retains the air of a much-loved home, adorned with family antiques and old portraits on its walls. Containing four en-suite rooms, each with its own entrance, the house can comfortably accommodate families or groups of up to ten, with plenty of space for lounging on its vast veranda or curling up in front of the fireplace.
The Garden Rooms
The delightful Garden Rooms are each uniquely and tastefully furnished, and yield views across acres of lush lawns from the shelter of fertile foliage. Several are adjoined for families and friends, while others offer couples the exclusivity and romance of their own private space. The Rivertrees reservation team makes a point of allocating each room according to the needs of their individual guests, and takes care to ensure that the right match is made for the perfect stay.
Each of the inn’s cottages is thoughtfully set in its own peaceful spot along the water, or amongst the whispering shade of tall trees. Privacy and calm conspire to soothe and rejuvenate travelers that stop in along their way, be it for a week or a night.
Its restaurant looks out over lush green lawns, and the delicious country cuisine is made up of garden-fresh ingredients and old family recipes. Originally an elegant coffee estate, Rivertrees takes pride in presenting a rich brew grown locally in volcanic mountain soils.
For those inclined toward adventure, with Arusha National Park, Mt Meru and Lake Duluti all within easy reach, there is plenty to do, while the birdlife at the lodge can proffer an afternoon of peaceful pottering for those more inclined toward relaxation.
