The Beginning of
“Ruen Come In Restaurant and Huen Come Residence” can
be dated back to the year 1988, when this golden teakwood mansion
was first built. The owner chose golden teakwood in order to reminisce
her childhood, running and playing with her cousin in teak wood
house in Phrae province.
of the mansion was never been easy. It was difficult to find both
the material and man craft. Starting from the teak wood, some were
brought from Burma (Through Baan Nhong Ook check point – it
was closed already), some were from old houses in northern Thailand.
In total, it took almost 7 years to finish this project.
Once the construction
was finished, the owner’s family have moved in and started
to decorate. Almost everything were self picked, some trees were
self planted (especially the coconut tree, because the owner’s
sons like to drink coconut). The atmosphere that surrounds the house
is cosy and comfortable, it is a perfect place for oneself to relax.
This mansion served
as a private house for only a short period. In 1997, during the
“IMF Era” when Thailand’s rising economy was collapsed,
the owner decided to change it into a restaurant, so that other
visitors can enjoy the nice atmosphere as well as the architecture.
Guests have since then enjoy both the serene setting and taste of
the food from family’s recipes (The grandparents used to own
a famous restaurant “Bua Sawan Bar” in Nhong Bua, Doi
Saket district, some recipes are from Phrae province)
Come Residence”, an accommodation service, has just been opened
to those who seek to relax themselves in this contemporary design
teak wood mansion and in Chiang Mai’s way of life.
