A place where tranquility and nature find their utmost expression.
Landscape comes into the house…. The sound of water caressing the stones can be heard, the wind can be seen as it draws its footsteps on the surface of the lake. Fresh scents… wilderness sounds… invite us to disconnect in order to allow us to re-connect with our senses… the essential…

…call it “mountain home”, because… like to emphasize that… ourselves built it… It is a house that speaks… Full of imperfections… scars… A house that shows its heart, its structure, with beams and solid columns, that respectfully blend with the environment…
RUSTIC… WARM… COMFORTABLE WE BUILT IT THINKING IN EVERY CORNER
OUR LIVING ROOM, THE FIREPLACE
A corner for every moment...
Elegant Lodge well off the beaten path
“If you have a chance to stay with the lovely Patricia and Ivor at Aguas Arriba, it’s well worth the effort. The place is gorgeous, the food is outstanding, and you will likely get to know some interesting people from around the world. It’s an intimate place that lends itself to good conversation, both over meals in the dining room, or in front of the fire in the stunning main room. There is also a library with a good collection of books on the local area and culture, as well as novels in many languages.”
The double roof and large windows… depict romanticism into the room… open and luminous views… time stops… we feel a part of this all … we relax among our friends… our family…
The fireplace, embraces us and covers us with warmth in the cold days… and listening to the sound of the fire, we share long nights of boardgames, cards, “snacks”, laughter and joy…
The sound of the water, the scents of the forest… awake our senses… calm us down… Time seems not to be enough to enjoy it all.
THE DINING ROOM
We serve breakfast, lunch and dinner on individual tables for each guest, couple or group, in a warm space with large windows with the lake views…. On sunny days with no wind, we serve lunch on the deck… At dinner time, the sunset views with pink clouds surrounding the mountains are the best option. We prepare and take care of every detail, providing personalized attention. All meals are produced entirely in the lodge.
Meeting point when coming back from hiking, cold beers, the brave ones jump into the lake… Chatting, photography, and for the quiet ones a good book covered with a soft warm blanket…
The deck, overlooking the lake, invites us to enjoy silence… except for the breaking of ice off the glacier

THE UPPER FLOOR
A space for relaxation… comfort… to read a book, enjoy a conversation… appreciate the incredible views… While listening the sound of the water touching the shore next to the house in the distance…
THE READING ROOM
The Reading room… warm and comfortable, with mushy armchairs which welcome us to read relaxed, lying down. Our books… a family legacy that you can find in our bookshelves, together with others given by our friends, visitors and guests.
You can find… a bit of everything… stories of the first settlers, books about Patagonia, adventures… history, argentine cuisine, landscaping, old cars, classic motorcycles… argentine estancias and more.
Our hotel has five exclusive suites. Spacious… with comfortable beds and incredible views of the lake, the mountains and the glacier.
With its large windows, scents of wood, lenga flooring in each room…

WHEN BUILDING THE LODGE…
Each view, chosen so that our guests feel its embrace, in this remote place..We chose the views you will enjoy while having your meals, moments of relax beside the fireplace, and the shadow on the deck for some afternoons…
Built entirely in wood, using the remains of a partially burnt forest from northern patagonia. It demanded three years of hard work to process and obtain what we see today…
We built the lodge with the feeling of respect as guests of the place. We took care of the environment and the surroundings, an amazing working team which endured together with us the changing weather conditions. We worked for four seasons, isolated, transporting all materials by boat full of thrill and with a lot of effort.

Paradise on a lake
“This was an extraordinary experience with wonderful people in one of the most beautiful places on earth. Ivor and Pato are great hosts and enjoy sharing their slice of paradise with their guests. This is a tiny hotel in a wooden lodge on the lake. I hiked further than I have done for years with my lovely guide, Ines. I can’t wait to come back here again.”
