“Ticks all the boxes!”
Reviewed December 5, 2011

This working estancia is one of the most beautiful places we have visited on our 12 month journey around south america. Run by new manager Georgie Tegart who is a hoot and has life experiences that will shock and wow, the property is a beautiful, lush and complete with animals and gouchos.
The food and wine here is just as amazing. The parilla we had here was possibly the best we have had on our entire trip.
Rooms are very spacious and are in true country style.
Take a wonder aournd the property or We took a beautiful horse ride around the property which spans over 15,000 acres.
You can do a horse riding trip from here into Chile which sounded amazing. It takes you 10 days. There was a group of people there who were doing a 5 day goucho ride, where you round up the cattle and drive them around the property.
If you have the time and money, I would highly recommend this experience. We only wish that we could have spent more time here.

We have booked a Cross the Andes trip in Dec 2010; got an unforgettable riding experience of a life time.

The stay and day trips before the ride already have been fantastic. Accommodations are divided over several cabins on the Estancia in the middle of the beautiful garden. Jane and Diego made sure we got well prepared for the trip. You quickly get to experience how well everything is organized.

Horses are being carefully selected depending on everybody’s riding skills and taste.

The Cross the Andes trip was what you could call an ‘Experience of a life time’. Be prepared to have long days in the saddle - experiencing all different kinds of riding and surroundings. Never once was it too much, the riding is simply just amazing. The gauchos are always around knowing when to assist. Whether it was lunch which we took along on the horses, or lunch at an arranged meeting place - it was always fantastic followed by a siesta. And trust us; on the last days you will sleep well after lunch! The evening camps were always well prepared. Dinner around the camp fire was always superb, including plenty of vino tinto and beer.

We could write about this experience much more; it was just amazing. We wish we could visit and relax on the Estancia more often. And needless to say I wish I could go riding like in Argentina, every weekend!

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Estancia Huechahue is a family owned working cattle ranch located in Northern Patagonia, Argentina. Nestled into rows and rows of Lombardy poplars, the lodge sits on Ruta Nacional 234 just north of Junin de los Andes, Neuquen Province in Northern Patagonia. Only forty five minutes from San Martin de los Andes and two hours from San Carlos de Bariloche, it is close to Argentina’s famous Lake District and its many attractions. Our lodge is open from November 1 to April 30 every year. Huechahue is perfect for guests who want to explore the area by car and who would like the experience of staying on a working cattle and horse ranch instead of a hotel in town. We offer a B&B option of hotel room with breakfast included. Lunch and dinner are optional and paid for separately. We would be happy to help you plan your activities while you are here. Other guests like an all-inclusive package which typically revolves around our impressive horseback riding programs, fly fishing on the Collon Cura and Chimehuin rivers, a farm or ranch stay, or signing up for one of our culinary classes. Additional reviews of Estancia Huechahue can be found under "attractions". The farm itself is virtually self-sufficient. Water is drawn from an aquifer and electricity from a turbine. Much of the food served at Huechahue comes from the land. Beef, lamb and kid make their way to the asado (BBQ) pit. Ham and bacon from our pigs are cured in the smoke-house. Venison and wild boar from the property are served fresh or smoked and preserved in oil for tasty snacks. Eggs come from the chicken run; milk, home made yogurt and cheese from the dairy cow. Berry patches line the paths and the orchard serves up plums, peaches, nectarines, apricots and apples. A massive garden provides fresh vegetables. Guests can be assured of excellent services and a warm welcome. The atmosphere at Huechahue is relaxing and genial. Eight guest cabins are spread out through the orchard, a short stroll from the main lodge. Guests gather in the dining room for meals, or the large "quincho" for asados and grill outs over an open fire. We hope to see you soon! ... more   less
