Many members of this agricultural moshav have traded in their hoes and tractors for beds and Jacuzzis. The moshav offers 70 guesthouses run by 15 families, including the Ya'aris' three Finnish wooden cabins set in a carefully designed tropical garden. The atmosphere of "Derech Hashenhav," as it is named, is not only beautiful and homey, but erotic. The only babies allowed on the premises are those being conceived. The soundproof cabins are decorated with roses and the large Jacuzzi is placed conveniently next to the bed. The guesthouse is supplied with soaps, treats, wine and every amenity a couple could need (except for certain toys). Scrumptious breakfasts are served in the Ya'ari home.
Weekdays: B&B: NIS 480; Weekends: B&B: NIS 1,200 for two nights.

While the North is replete with cozy, private guesthouses, those seeking a hotel experience, whether to accommodate kids or an event, can opt for Hacienda, which preserves a lodge atmosphere amidst deluxe four-star amenities. Located within the forests of Western Galilee, between Ma'alot and Kfar Vradim, the campus includes five buildings and 140 suites sprawled over 70 dunams. The main drawback is the price, which doesn't compete with the price of some cozier, more private cabins.
Weekdays: NIS 580 B&B; Weekends: NIS 700 B&B (min. two nights); After July 26 - Weekdays: NIS 780 B&B; Weekends: NIS 720 B&B (min two nights).
