Mítico Puelo Lodge

Lago Tagua Tagua, Cochamó, Los Lagos, 5550000, Chile

It feels like you have the Patagonia Andes all to yourself at this rustic Puelo Valley retreat that was built in 1991 as a private getaway for fly-fishing enthusiasts. Sitting alone on the shores of Tagua Tagua Lake, it is reached by private boat or plane. (The hotel has its own motorboat, and transfers are included in rates.) In 2010, it opened to guests, and activities like biking, horseback riding, trekking, kayaking, and sailing were added. The area has also developed a bit in recent years, with the creation of Tagua Tagua Park in the nearby El Salto Valley and the Puelo Vineyards a few miles upstream, so guests keep busy with a host of guided excursions. Otherwise, wander around the gardens, soak in the views from the deck, and savor the flavorful meals of Patagonian lamb, local veggies, and fresh fish. Rooms are basic and comfortable, with private bathrooms, queen or twin beds, central heating, and Wi-Fi. Superior rooms have terraces, and the one apartment sleeps six in three bedrooms.
