Utuado chalet description

Surrounded by nature in the peaceful mountains of Utuado, a town in the central region of Puerto Rico, you will find Casa Lago...In this neat and beautifully decorated Lake House, can sleep up to six persons. It has three bedrooms with queen size beds, two full bathrooms, (one bedroom is a family room with TV and a sofa that can be used as a queen size bed ); all rooms with linens and towels. This two story wooden house has also a fully equipped kitchen. It also has a dining room,, living room, and a large terrace with a hammock that will tempt you for a daily nap, or simply relax while enjoying a nice view of the Caonillas Lake. Most of the time we have a cool breeze weather, although, there are six ceiling fans in the house that will make it more comfortable for you, if needed.

In the lower level of the house there's another terrace and a laundry area with washer and dryer. In our large patio, there's a big gazebo with two half bathrooms and plenty of chairs and tables to gather your party and enjoy a charcoal BBQ; all under the shade of bamboo trees.

Begin your day with an aromatic coffee while the morning fog still covers the lake, or prepare a fresh fruit salad with bananas,papayas, mangoes, oranges or pineapples, among other fruits you'll find from vendors along the country roads. Since we are steps away from the lake,you can enjoy fishing from our private dock, kayaking and paddle board. For those who seek an adventure or like to exercise, mountain biking or an early jog are great choices to boost your day. To sparkle your evenings, we suggest a nice wine near the fire pit, while listening to the singing of the 'Coquis', an endemic tiny frog and cultural symbol of Puerto Rico. It just can't get any better!

This hidden little piece of heaven is a 1 hour and 30 minute drive from the San Juan International Airport.
While in the area, you can plan your visit to many tourist attractions known nearby, that will make your vacation a very exciting and special one. The Arecibo Observatory, is a 1,000ft radio telescope, the world's largest! It is used in three major areas: Radio Astronomy, Aeronomy and Radar Astronomy. This telescope has made appearances in motion pictures and television productions, as is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The Caguana Indigenous Ceremonial Park is one of the most popular attractions in Puerto Rico. Here, you will learn about our ancestors, the 'Tainos' indians. archeologist have uncoverd many artifacts, petroglyphs, monoliths, and stone-lined areas that show evidence of occupation which may date from the year 1000-1100ad, to the beginning of the 15TH century. This spirited and mystical museum-park is said to be one of the most important Taino-Culture archeological sites in the antilles today. The Batey Zipline Adventure Park, is another way to explore nature while experiencing a day full of adventure like hiking, rappelling, underground river caves or horseback ridding. Besides the Caonillas Lake, Utuado also features the Dos Bocas Lake. As you reach the main dock (embarcadero), you may choose a free scenic boat ride that will take you to the restaurants and enjoy the delicious puerto rican cuisin. Puerto Rico is also famous for its coffee, so we suggest a visit to Hacienda San Pedro, a coffee plantation in the nearby town of Jayuya. And of course, in Utuado you will find supermarkets, pharmacies, gas station, bakeries, banks and other business location for your convenience.

                      Why Utuado:
                      This house is my dream come true! Since I bought it, I started restoring it to make it our 'special place'. Joined by my wife and daughter, as well as family members and friends, here we really spend quality time. It is common that visitors and friends end up staying overnight. Maybe is because the beauty and relaxed atmosphere you'll experience once here, but they simply don't want to leave; and I don't blame them at all ! Now, I am more than happy to open the doors of my home and share with others this great place.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Chalet:
                      The beauty of the nature that surrounds this wooden Lake Front House, combined with the peaceful and country sights Utuado has to offer.
