The Patagonia Lodge began life as “Mincho’s Lodge”, but later changed hands and is now called Patagonia Lodge.
It is located a couple of kms south of the main sector of Coyhaique in its own, small oasis, with the River Simpson not far away and surrounded by trees.
Indeed, staying here is to be “cut off” from the hustle and bustle of downtown Coyhaique and feel like you are back on the Carretera Austral.
Constructed from wood and decorated inside with wood the property is every inch a lodge and along with it is a warmth and cosiness that comes with such places.
In addition to is home-cooked, food restaurant, there is a hot tub to relax in.
For those requiring a logistical night only this is a good bet and certainly it is well positioned for those arriving from the north and then heading south on the Carretera Austral. Alternatively, if you need a few nights rest then this, too, will serve that purpose.
The Patagonian lodge is a 20-room, rustic and authentic lodge in every sense of what a lodge means.
The wooden exterior as well as the interior, together with log-burning fires, and family-style furniture all combine to create a welcoming and cosy ambience.
On one side there is a view out to the valley and woods.
