Chilean-raised, half-American free spirit Annette and her supercat Guiña are your hosts at this remarkable three-room lodge, a nature-centric gem absolutely embedded in local craftmanship – petrified-volcano-ash sinks, reclaimed-araucaria staircases and tables, indigenous-textile seat cushions, roble- and coihue-wood shelving and bannisters – that sets the tone for a sustainable journey through local Mapuche and Pewenche cultures.

There are rattan hanging nests for reading, a native bamboo breakfast quincho for morning sustenance and solar-lit trails around the secluded property. Nature and culture tours, a private chef (often foraged ingredients used!) and sommelier are at the ready. One of the three separate cabañas sits right on the Río Cautín, which roars through the forested 4-hectare property. You ain't going to leave here for a very long time.
