With just 34 rooms, and a fabulous breezy courtyard with a giant mango tree growing through it, the historic Cara Lodge feels intimate. It's a great spot to spend a night or two relaxing in Georgetown on either end of a journey into the country's wild interior. Rooms are clean and quite spacious, with hardwood floors and local art on the walls, plus very comfortable beds and TVs that pick up American local news channels, should you be craving a fix after a week without Wi-Fi on the river. The colonial hotel is made from two combined renovated houses with serious local history dating back to the 1840s.
The on-site Bottle Bar Restaurant does very good food (it's one of Georgetown's best actually), and serves three meals a day including a notable breakfast. The al fresco courtyard is perfect for a breezy evening drink. There is free Wi-Fi and even an on-site business center, plus the location is quite central.
