In 1917, when Italian pioneer Primo Capraro erected a wooden lodge in the wilderness of north-shore Lake Nahuel Huapi, the only guests brave enough to sail from Bariloche were hardy fishermen eager to land a record-breaking catch from trout-rich Río Correntoso. Today the river's mouth remains an angler's favorite, but much else has changed: Modern amenities can now be found just two miles east in Villa La Angostura, and only the rods and reels lining the walls hint at the lodge's rustic origins. An elegant interior of exposed stone and hand-carved wood, warmed by numerous crackling fires, leads to 31 rooms—an additional 17 are due for completion in 2009—that overlook the lake and snowcapped cordillera beyond. Guests are encouraged to hike, raft, or saddle up and gallop off by day, but there's enough of a draw in the kitchen's expert preparation of Patagonian staples, the library's early-traveler first editions, and the mosaic-tiled hammam with attached indoor/outdoor pool to merit a few lazy days indoors.
