Hacienda Cusin was founded in 1602. In 1990, Cusin's English owner converted Hacienda Cusin into a "country house" inn of 25 guest rooms, suites and garden cottages whilst preserving its history.
Cusin's monastery provides 18 spacious guest rooms and its white buttressed walls, towers, parapet, cloisters, garden and fountain courtyards add distinction to the ancient landscape.
The 40 acre complex, including its valley farm, Gualavi, lies at 8,500 ft. in the Ecuadorian sierra, 90 minutes north of Quito, on the outskirts of the village of San Pablo de Lago and its two mile crater lake.
The mountains of Cotocachi (15,300 ft.), Mojanda and Imbabura (15,250 ft.) dramatize the green landscape and are often reflected in the San Pablo Lagoon. Twelve miles south, the Equator passes through the snow-capped Cayambe volcano (18,997 ft.). Cusin's white walls and terracotta tiles are nestled beneath the deep blue sky in a wide, pastoral valley. It is the antithesis of urban life.
