In the quincho (dining room with a typical Argentine barbecue), guests can enjoy our delicious meats prepared to perfection in various ways. Grilled, barbecued, on a flat iron, or in a wood or brick oven. Our sides are a variety of seasonal vegetables, mostly grown within the farm and paired with our great selection of Argentine wines.
During their stay at Rinconada Lodge, meals are generally served in the main house's dining room and guests gather for a cocktail in front of the fire in the living room or watch the sunset on the porch.
Craft your dream journey
We make your stay as pleasant as possible, you can enjoy our activities as long as they are available, although many are organized at the moment, in most cases it is convenient that you ask us what activities you would like to do.
We have Wi-Fi always available throughout the lodge, as well as in the outdoor living areas where you can enjoy the incredible views that make Patagonia famous. In the evenings, while enjoying one of our famous Malbecs, our guests can gather around the fire under the Southern Cross.

The estancia is self-sufficient, so it’s no surprise that much of the food is home-produced: ham and bacon from their pigs is cured in the smokehouse, they produce their own beef, lamb, venison and wild boar, and eggs come from the chicken run. Produce is seasonal, vegetables are grown in the organic garden, and fruits and nuts in the extensive orchards. Even the jam is made from surplus fruit!
Meals are varied and delicious and set around the large dining table, and can be tailored – with notice – to suit dietary requirements. There’s also a quincho (a special building) for asados (traditional BBQs). The local wine flows!
A great respect for the environment permeates the operations at Estancia Huechahue. Water is gravity-fed from natural springs and electricity comes from a water driven turbine. Tree planting provides enough firewood for all heating and hot water, meaning all energy used is renewable. The prevention of erosion is also paramount; walking and riding routes are designated based on their soil stability and any tracks showing signs of deterioration are reinforced.
Set in northern Argentinian Patagonia, at the foothills of the Andes mountains and close to the Chilean border, Huechahue feels remarkably remote. You can fly from Buenos Aires to Bariloche, which is 200 kms away, from where we can arrange a transfer to the estancia. San Martin de los Andes is 70 kms away and Junin de los Andes is 30 kms.
