                      We are off the beaten path. Our lodge is nestled in the between picturesque farms and deep Chilean forests, 16 miles past Pucon town. A large swimming hole right in front of our lodge on the crystal clear Liucura River is great attraction! Hiking along our river to fish trout and migratory salmon is a thrill! Tubing and kayaking are also popular. We are between the Huerquehue and Cani national forests with world class hiking. Horseback excursions are also available nearby. Fox, wildboar, woodpeckers, eagles and a wide variety of native birds can be viewed. A 300 foot waterfall, visible from our yard can be reached in 15 minutes by foot. The majestic '3 Waterfalls' is a 10 minute drive. There are 3 major, natural hot-springs 15 minutes away by car.

                      The town of Pucon is a 25 minute drive away. There you can find good supermarkets, fine restaurants, handicraft markets, and lively night-life.

                       

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2002

                      About the owner: After traveling all of Latin America my dad (from NY) chose this corner of paradise for its unique beauty. My mom (from Chile) liked the view of the waterfall, and the immediate access to swimming, hiking, and fishing. My brother and I loved getting away from the city to our lodge. In the winter enjoyed the cozy warmth of the wood-burning stove, and visits to the nearby hot-springs. In the summer we tubed and swam down the river, and enjoyed outdoor barbecues with our friends.

                      Why the Owner Chose Pucon:
                      Our 2 acres of land is bordered by a small stream on one side and the gentle Liucura River on the other. This small, gentle river is perfect since it's deep enough for swimming in some sections, yet shallow and slow enough to be safe. The natural swimming hole right in front of our deck is an endless source of fun for swimming! Most of the river is not over your head, and there are no dangerous currents. It's teeming with wild brook, brown, and rainbow trout. Huge salmon migrate up the river in late summer which are fun to catch and eat! Our place is secluded off the beaten path with only a few very upscale homes in the area. Wildlife viewing and endless outdoor activities are right at our doorstep!

                      The Unique Benefits at this Lodge:
                      Our home was designed by Pablo Errazuriz, a famous Chilean architect, along with my dad. The cathedral ceiling in the master bedroom, the 9 foot living room ceiling, the spiral staircase, and the native, hardwood floors all give our place a unique, classy, character. No two rooms are alike, and all have a view of the river. The house has heavy-grade insulation which makes it cool in the summer and cozy in the winter. The 16,000 calorie/hour wood burning stove is a great source of joy and warmth.
