Hosteria Tyndall Review

A boat ferries you from the end of the road the few minutes around the meandering bends of the Serrano River to this wooden lodge, often surrounded by flocks of snow geese and other wild birds; inside, the simple rooms in the main building are small but cute and spotless, with attractive wood paneling. The hallways have dramatic, colonial-era light fittings, which can be seen as either broodingly romantic or just not doing their job; the lodge itself can be noisy—a problem solved by renting a log cottage (at $159 a night they're great value for groups of four). There's also a much more basic refugio with dorm-style rooms that are very cheap. Owner Christian Bore is a wildlife enthusiast and bird-watcher; ask him for a tour of the grassy plain looking out toward the central cluster of snowy peaks. Or go fishing—the kitchen staff will cook your catch for free.
