My wife and I stayed at the Lazy Dog Inn for five days in mid November. The inn is located
About fifteen minutes up the mountain from Huarez ,Peru. For anyone wanting to stay at this property you must remember that it is located at around 11,000 ft. Up in the mountains. THAT IS THE BEAUTY of the experience. By staying at this inn you are at the doorstep of an amazing amount of hikes and outdoor beauty.The owners of the inn, Diana & Wayne, are very environmentally motivated to insure a pristine setting.They were wonderful at attending to our every need including taxi calling and helping us hire local tour guides for our many outings. One day we had the taxi drive up up into the lake area to 15,000 ft. So we could hike down to the inn......FUN. There is really no negative aspect to staying at The Lazy Dog other than the fact that life at altitude and in a remote setting is different than staying at a luxurious beachside resort yet in many ways a lot COOLER.
