LUXURY PRIVATE PUCON ECO CABANA SPECTACULAR LAKE/MOUNTAIN VIEW

Pucon House Rental Photos and Description

2+Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom With Panoramic Lake & Mountain Views from Every Room

AMOR DEL LAGO is a unique, upscale colorful, comfortable, secluded cabana six minutes by car to Pucon. Our guests tell us consistently that our fully equipped cabana offers far more amenities than any other in the area. Pucon, the adventure capital of Chile, is stunning, its beauty rivaling European lake resorts. We are located in the heart of the Lake District. Amor del Lago is on the same property as GRACIAS A LA VIDA, VRBO Listing 140763. We are located four hours north of Patagonia, in the foothills of the majestic Villarrica Volcano, in Southern Chile, the “Switzerland of South America.” We call this special retreat, Amor del Lago (Love of the Lake) and you will love it, too! This charming cottage is nestled into a forested, pastoral hillside. The exceptional panoramic view of the entire lake and peninsula is captivating. Pucon’s Black Forest architecture, delicious kuchen, and melt-in-your-mouth chocolate will make you feel like you’re in the Alps!

Amor's sister cabana, Romance del Lago, is available as of mid-November, 2014. Here are some tips to help you decide between Amor and Romance:

Both have the same size, floor plan, and amenities and spectacular views. Amor is located on the bottom of the Gracias a la Vida property. Romance is a few minutes further down the hill, outside the main gate, on the adjoining property to the north. Both have 2 bedrooms and can accommodate a fifth person, at an additional charge, in a single inflatable bed in the living/dining area. Both are colorful, light-filled, and have elevated decks. Both are well-insulated with a wood stove and heat pump. The price is the same for both homes. Both are ecologically conscious in design and energy usage. Both are located in a pastoral setting amidst sheep, horse, and cows grazing in the distance. Our golden retrievers occasionally visit Amor (especially Oso, a gentle soul who loves children). The dogs do not have access to Romance. There is a shared quincho (barbecue area) for the two cabanas.

Amor:

-Panoramic lake view

-Egyptian and indigenous Mapuche décor

-Twin beds can also be reconfigured as a California King bed.

-A bit more secluded in the forest.

-Quincho (barbecue area) is right next to the cabin. So, if you like nightly asados (grilled meals), this may be more convenient.

Romance

-Volcano and panoramic lake views

-Moroccan décor

-Quincho is a few minutes up the hill next to Amor.

-Open on three sides with and forested on the fourth.

Our cedar-colored cabana with its green metal roof, picture windows and doors, and raised terrace deck overlooks the expansive vista of Lake Villarrica, surrounding forest and mountains, and our verdant sheep pasture. As you enter AMOR, you will be greeted by an open living/dining room and kitchen with high ceilings, exposed pine beams, elegant yet comfy furniture, and a farmhouse-style dining nook. You will be bathed in light and the welcoming colors of nature: apple green, sky blue, and lemon yellow faux-painted walls. The rustic ceramic tile floor and a radiant wood stove that heats not only the cabana, but the water for the radiators in the two view bedrooms and bathroom.

The cheery yellow, open-style kitchen is built around a large and beautiful, stainless-steel, farmhouse sink brought from the U.S. The stained-wood, stylish cabinets feature hammered sunburst and hearts tin inserts of Amish design. The Bosch gas stove with Trotter hood, energy-efficient G.E. dishwasher, the Eco-rated LG refrigerator, and Eco-friendly washer-dryer will bring the familiarity and convenience of home. The compact, yet carefully-designed kitchen has everything you need to prepare delicious meals and to enjoy the fabulous view while cooking and cleaning up. Relax on our lovely deck with a fresh juice, copa de vino, or a cup of tea. Surrounding our home is a forest of 'maqui' bushes, whose purple fruit has recently been found to contain the highest amount of anti-oxidants of any plant in the world! Pick cherries in the summer, fresh blackberries, and Vitamin-C-filled rose hips. This is truly a paradise! We use no pesticides or herbicides on our property and use environmentally-friendly products whenever we can.

The colorful, hand-woven, ethnic hangings and rugs come straight from the Bedouins in Egypt, as well as the romantic, silver, filigree lamp over the dining room table. Argentinian stainless steel ceiling fans throughout our house will keep you cool in the temperate summer of Southern Chile. Magazine-quality photos of mouth-watering food and exotic travel destinations will delight the senses. Lounge in our side-by-side Rosen leather reclining couch as you sink into a great book, laze by a cozy fire, enjoy an engrossing video, or soak up R and R after a day of hiking, climbing Volcan Villarrica, or river rafting.

You will love cuddling under Egyptian-cotton sheets in either a California King, twin, or queen-size bed, depending on your needs. Each bedroom is situated to take maximum advantage of the soothing lake vista. We also offer a high-end, high-rise inflatable bed with a memory-foam topper for a fifth guest or child. A shared bath with Egyptian cotton towels, massage shower head, and plenty of towel bars will refresh you after a day of adventure, lying on the beach, luxuriating in a hot springs, or enjoying fine or fun dining.

For outdoor grilling and dining, either yourselves or prepared by our culinary caretaker, we have a spacious wood quincho (structure for barbecuing and eating) with a wood and slate table and chairs and a wonderful view of the lake.

Ideal getaway for single travelers, couples, small families, adventurers, nature lovers, or those seeking a tranquil retreat in nature. Perfect place to call home for a week or two visit to the Chilean Lake District. Easy access to Patagonia, the ocean, the Andes, and the Argentine Lake District. Take advantage of the 50+ restaurants in and around Pucon, prepare your own delicious meal from Chilean fresh salmon, congrio, merluza, corvina, lamb (cordero), lomo (beef), or wonderful fresh veggies and fruit. Top it off with a great Chilean or Argentine wine and you'll have an unforgettable dining experience in one of the most scenic spots on the planet!

Guestbook comments from the owner
From the guest book:

As all other guests before us, we had a wonderful time at Amor del Lago! Bob & Judyth were fantastic hosts and made sure the cabin has everything one could even think of... It truly feels like a home away from home.



We arrived in the rain, but the rest of the week the weather the weather was very good. We stayed busy most of the time and put in lots of hiking [three pages of detailed information about the various hikes, trails, waterfalls, hot springs]. At the end of each day, we would enjoy Pucon- pisco sour at Mamas & Tapas bar on O'Higgins followed by a meal at Trawen, an excellent restaurant!



Bob and Judyth, thanks for sharing your piece of paradise with us. We truly enjoyed everything here and hope to be back one day.

We are naturopathic/homeopathic doctors and authors, married for 27 years. In 2005 we took akayaking trip to Pumalin Park in the South of Chile, and fell in love with the area around Pucon. We were captivated by the breathtaking beauty of our property and bought it the same day! We named our land Ayun Mapu (Mapuche for 'land of love' or 'land that we love.' We built our dream home and house for our caretaker family. Last year we added a cabin. We have landscaped professionally and enjoy gorgeous flowers, native trees and bushes, fruit trees in a park-like setting as well as savoring the bounty of a large organic garden. We now have 9 acres, sheep, chickens, and a resident German shepherd as well as our outdoor cats and golden retrievers who accompany us from the U.S. It helps that Judyth got a degree in Spanish literature and Bob is avidly improving his Spanish. Our home, Gracias a La Vida, which we vacate ourselves seasonally for guests, was so popular that we decided to build a second rental home which was more economical: Amor del Lago. It is also a place for us to stay when our home is rented.

Judyth Reichenberg purchased this house in 2012

The view, the view, the view!! The shimmering water of the huge lake, the smoldering, snow-capped volcano ten minutes away; the countless stars of the Milky Way from the terrace; the delicious home-cooked Chilean meals with the best wine on the planet; the riotous cosmos, dahlias, lilies, lavender; the compact, colorful kitchen with all the modern conveniences; the great mattresses and soft sheets; the long summer days of light until 10PM, more hikes and hot springs and restaurants than we could name; the honking Chilean geese; the elusive, green lorakeets, who show up now and then. Watching our lambs frolic in the pasture next door. Buying delicious fresh or smoked salmon from the local fishmongers. Attending top-notch yoga classes just ten minutes away. Strolling on the beach all by ourselves. Kayaking on Lake Villarrica with outrageous views everywhere, and no other paddlers in sight. Staying toasty with the Amesti woodstove or visiting one of the numerous local hot springs on a rainy day. Savoring delicious, healthy, organic salads and fresh herbs right from our own garden and greenhouses. Eating the wonderful, fresh cheese that you can buy on practically every corner in Pucon and that we hope to make from our sheep's milk this year. Greeting our cheerful cuidador (caretaker) each morning as he asks, unfailingly, 'Como amanacio?' meaning 'How did you wake up?'

It took us less than five minutes after stepping onto our land to decide to buy it! The sheer beauty was jaw-dropping! Earlier this year we found the perfect place for the chalet which offers the unique combination of seclusion (nestled in the forest), expansive view of Lake Villarrica, the surrounding mountains, and our sheep pasture, and a remarkably peaceful environment.

Perfect Pick for Pucon

  • 5 of 5
Our family of four just spent a wonderful four weeks in this lovely cabana. The cabana is in great condition, and is beautifully decorated. The kitchen is fully stocked, and there is also a nice BBQ area for grilling. The beds are comfortable, and the living room is well set up for relaxing and watching movies on the TV (no TV channels available). My favorite feature was the deck, with its incredible views of Lake Villarica and the surrounding countryside.
For kids, you have a large field adjacent to the cabana for them to explore and play, with sheep in the adjacent field and beautiful birds above. While we were there, blackberries were available in abundance along the road leading to the property.
It is a 10 minute drive into town, 5 minutes of that is on a narrow, sometimes bumpy dirt road. We had a 2 wheel drive truck, which did fine. I cannot imagine using a standard sedan for an extended visit, but for 1 week, you would probably be ok. Some might find that they would prefer to be closer to the action in Pucon, but we were happy to get away from the crowds and congestion of the town, especially during February, when it was crazy crowded.
The caretakers and owners are up the hill, out of sight but nearby if you need them. They were extremely helpful and welcoming, and responsive to any needs or questions we had.
We were quite happy with our decision to stay in this cabana, and would recommend it to anyone looking to enjoy Pucon and the surrounding area.

Owner's Response: Dear Anita,
You were lovely guests. What an inspiration to hear about your 9 months or more of travel, with your two children, to Europe, Australia, and South America. Now that's how to give kids a cross-cultural education! Yes, the amenities, setting, and charm of Amor del Lago can't be beat in this area. We appreciated your suggestion of a couple of metal baking dishes, which we have provided. And your idea of providing cable TV for guests who rent for a couple of months or more is possible. Our WIFI is working better than ever, thankfully. As for the road, we think it depends a lot on the experience and comfort level of the driver(s). Our guests now, who are staying at the top of the hill, are doing fine with a low-clearance non 4x4, but high clearance is recommended The City of Pucon maintains the road up to our gate. Lately they have been much better about frequent regrading. From the gate to Amor del Lago is gravel, which we do our best to keep free of ruts. It was great having you stay for a month, so we can showcase our cabana for longer-term renters, and the feedback allowed us to fine tune the few items that would make a longer stay more comfortable.
Warmly,

Judyth and Bob

Lovely Lake and Mountain View

  • 5 of 5
This is a beautiful cabana with a lovely lake and mountain view! It is beautifully decorated and well thought out and planned for the comfort of its guests. It has a deck, outside eating area, large windows and has a gourmet's delight kitchen, dishwasher, clothes washer, everything you could want! The caretakers are friendly and helpful, as are the owners. We didn't have a car, but taxi service was prompt and friendly. Great places to shop and eat in Pucon and many outdoor adventure opportunities to explore the area! I can't imagine a better place to stay!!!!

Cabin Luxury in Paradise

  • 5 of 5
Everything that you read about this cabin in the Owner's description is true. Wonderfully equipped to US standards and expectations. Very comfortable beds and only the bird calls to interrupt your night's sleep. The view is exceptional and the feeling of solitude magical. Bob and Judyth were gracious enough to greet us and show us their main property "Gracias a la Vida" which is spectacular. Very much a place to return to nature. A 4 x 4 vehicle is recommended for the access road. We did it ok in a standard SUV but make sure your vehicle has good clearance. A memorable place to unwind.

perfect place to stay

  • 5 of 5
Amor del Lago es una cabaña adorable escondida entre las montañas y con una vista al lago difícil de olvidar. Es ideal porque está en medio de la naturaleza pero muy cerca del centro de Pucón, apenas 5 minutos en auto. Además judyth y bob la equiparon con todo lo necesario: camas muy confortables, una cocina ideal para quienes disfrutan de cocinar en vacaciones como nosotros y anotaciones con toda la información sobre las excursiones que ofrece Pucón. Estuvimos solo cuatro días pero nos quedamos con ganas de mucho más!

Amor del Lago is a charming cabana hidden in the mountains with a lovely lake view. It's perfect because it's located away from Pucon but very close if you go by car (just five minutes drive). More also Judyth and Bob equipped perfectly the cabana with a complete kitchen that have all you need if you love to cook. We stay only four days but we wish we'd had more time to enjoy amor del lago and Pucon!

Great time!

  • 5 of 5
Our first full day was solid rain, but we enjoyed lounging in the cabin with a fire and luxurious beds. The cabin was just as described. Very cozy and relaxing, with a fabulous view. You hear nothing but birds and occasional sheep or horse. Everything in the house is excellent quality, unlike most vacation rentals. Location is great too. Bob and Judith were so nice and really helpful with tips on things to do. Looking forward to checking it out in winter too!

Remarkable Property

  • 5 of 5
Wonderful house way up on the side of Villarica volcano with a spectacular view of the lake. Conveniently close to Pucon for shopping, dining, and adventuring. Well maintained with kitchen fully equipped by US standards which puts it leagues ahead of comparable local cabaña acccommodation. Only downside is access along the dirt road which can get deeply rutted depending on traffic and rains - access with normal car can be very tricky.

Owner's Response: Yes, we built and furnished Amor del Lago to suit Americans and Europeans. We have never seen another cabana with the same level of comfort and luxury. We try our best to keep the road up to our house graded and in good condition, but the weather is variable here and it is a gravel road. We recommend that guests bring either a 4-wheel drive or a high-clearance vehicle. The majority of our guests have arrived with standard rental cars and have done fine, as does our caretaker, who lives on the property. We recommend driving slowly and steadily and not spinning your wheels. If you are familiar with driving on gravel roads, or follow the suggestions above, you should have no problem and would not need to rent a 4x4. If you are planning to do lots of hiking or visits to termas (hot springs), you might want a 4-wheel drive. There are many tour companies who can take you from Pucon to the off-road sites and we can recommend a taxi driver who can take you wherever you want.
