About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 2

Our cozy cabin sits in a native hardwood forest with fantastic views of the snow covered Osorno volcano. This gated community offers security and seclusion. The open floor plan studio cabin has a queen size bed, well equipped galley kitchen, living room/ dining area, wood burning fireplace and a large deck. A short hike takes you to a private river and beautiful waterfall. There are excellent restaurants close by, a national park, several lakes and rivers with different water sports. A half hour picturesque drive along the lake takes you to the town of Puerto Varas with modern supermarkets, shops, many eateries and a casino. The cabin is nicely appointed and makes a lovely home away from home.

a very nice secluded place to stay: five stars for service

  • 4 of 5

This small cabin is great for a couple and has adequate kitchen facilities to prepare simple meals. The bathroom is tiny but adequate. The views from the large picture windows are fabulous, the bed was firm and comfortable, with plenty of pillows and blankets. The interior is beautiful with all natural wood throughout.

During our stay, the weather was very stormy and it rained a lot. Access was not compromised by the rain. There is a fair distance between the paved road and the cabin, but the unpaved portion, while rough in spots, was passable at all times. My biggest worry about access was that a tree or large limb could fall and block the road for a time. I would advise renting a car with at least 4-5 inches of ground clearance if you wish to use this property. We had a small Samsung sedan and it never bottomed out or dragged on the road. We did lose power for short periods of time during storms, but never longer than an hour or so.

The only real problem during our stay was that the water heater, a gas on demand unit, would not function. The owner gave us directions to use the shower in the main house until fixed, which was not a hardship. The main cabin was not occupied during our stay and when an immediate fix on the water heater proved impossible, the owner offered us the option of moving to the main house.

This cabin, like most houses in Chile is uninsulated, due to the mild climate. You will get big temperature swings during warrm days and cool nights, and there are small backup heaters available if it gets too cool. Easily installed screens are available for the kitchen and bathroom windows, and we used them and got good cross flow ventilation and cooling, when combined with the drop in screens for the doors. There is a small wood burner and plenty of wood available, but it never got cold enough to use it. There are some biting insects, both mosquitoes and blackflies, and they were only a problem outside just before dusk. Adequate clothing and a little insect repellent took care of them. The tap water is not potable water, but there is a large counter top boiler available and we just used boiled water. The kitchen has all the necessary utensils, but is short on condiments and spices, so bring your own, as well as cooking oil, and anything necessary for complex dishes.

Stein, who was acting as backup caretaker and handyman, was extremely helpful, providing advice and assistance, and explaining Chile.

Owner's Response: Bud, I wish that the weather had been nicer for your stay. It was a strange event for the summer season in this location to have such bad storms. Glad you liked the cabin, the view and the area. I will add to my guest notes that there is a road maintenance crew in this private park that keeps the roads clear, so there is no need to worry about road closure. The cobweb has been removed form the hot water heater so it is working now, so sorry about that issue. Glad that you are thinking of coming back with one of your sons to fish next season and,I am happy to offer you a return guest discount on either the cabin or the main 3 bedroom house.

Beautiful secluded cabin nestled in the woods

  • 5 of 5

We loved this place! Marian's cabin is cozy, comfortable, clean, well decorated with local art, and well-appointed for simple cooking. But, the best thing is the view of Volcan Osorno - visible even from bed! We loved the quiet, peace and solitude (and visits from the resident wildlife). On a sunny day life doesn't get much better than sitting on the spacious deck, eating an empanada and drinking Chilean wine while gazing up at the magical mountain..

The cabin is far enough from town to feel remote and relaxing, but close enough to restock provisions, have a nice lunch out, or go for a hike in the National Park.

Marian and her husband, Matt, are impossibly nice and did everything to ensure things were ready for our stay.

Yes, stay here, it's wonderful!
