I could not believe I was able to stretch a bit of my backpackers budget to spend 4 days here.
The amenities in the Lazy Dog are astounding. The architecture is beautiful, the property- complete with garden and horse stable, incredible. The bedding, fireplace, porch, all perfect. Meals are as delicious and filling as they are healthy. All of the staff are responsible and lovely, and the proprietor goes out of her way to treat them with respect.
The owner is by far more informed and prepared to help with hiking and treking logistics than at either of the other two lodges I stayed at in the area. Reaching the lodge via collectivo/hike also proved easy and an enriching experience.
After one year in S. America, this stands out as a major highlight, and MUST DO.

Our family is just finishing a year of travel in South America. We stayed at the Lazy Dog for 4 nights toward the start of our trip and had such a fantastic time! We made some great memories here. We have stayed at lots of hostels along the way, but loved that we splurged on this lovely mountain inn.
It was far out of town, but so worth it to be in such a remote area and enjoy the the wonder of the Andes! Diana and Wayne were great hosts and were super friendly to us. We could hike right from the house, we rode horses with Diana and my daughters, ages 12 and 14, loved her because she has a spicy personality! My daughters had a chance to volunteer in the school near the inn and interact with the children. My husband spent several days building adobe bricks for the new school and we all really enjoyed the opportunity to interact with the locals.
Dinners were a highlight! We had great conversations, met interesting people, including young professionals from Lima who gave us great insight into Peru and gave us travel advice that changed the course of our year's travel!
Thanks for the great experiences!

I spent two fun-filled days here at the Lazy Dog Inn. Beautiful place, spectacular location and views, wonderful folks who own it and run it; (thanks Diana and Nick) great house and cozy rooms, awesome homemade meals by the local women (thanks senoras)...loved the stuffed zucchini!!

Nice selection of wines, great local IPA beer, beautiful Peruvian Pasos, sweet dogs, most amazing stars and constellations at night!!...went on day hikes right from the inn, horseback riding, relaxed by the fireplace with a nice Chilean Cabernet, what more can I say? But, I could go on and on...

Room Tip: it's all good!

Just back from a trip to the Huaraz area of Peru. Stayed at the Lazy Dog Inn for two nights as part of our acclimatization program before trekking around the cordillera Huayhuash for 15 days. After the hustle and bustle of Huaraz, the Lazy Dog provided a wonderful retreat. Great location and views - we trekked into Laguna Llaca one day, spacious comfortable cabins, great food, mostly locally grown, friendly staff, and dogs, and excellent locally brewed Sierra Andina beers! The fireplaces in the cabins and the main dining area were much appreciated during the rain one afternoon.

We plan to return to trek around Alpamayo-Cedros and will definitely stay at the Lazy Dog again.

We stayed in Lazy Dogs Inn with our daughter in late April and fell in love with it immediately. It is so relaxing sitting by the roaring fire enjoying a nice glass of red wine chatting to some amazing people. When we were there there were visitors from Moscow, Iceland, Alaska, Calgary and Germany. The setting is unbelievable - waking up in the morning and looking out on snow capped peaks cannot be beaten. We did some mountain biking with Julio a local guide which was great fun, walked up to the lake, and went horse riding with Diane another day. The horses are lovely and the saddles are western style - so comfortable. We stayed for 4 nights and could easily have stayed longer. Food is fantastic - thanks Diane!

Room Tip: We stayed in Rima Rima - very spacious and so cosy with the fire lit in the evenings,
