Set atop the same fossil-striped cliffs that fascinated Charles Darwin 170 years ago, El Pedral Lodge boasts its own stretch of coastline, complete with an elephant seal colony, 45 miles from Puerto Madryn, in the northeast province of Chubut. The main house on the 42,000-acre former sheep farm was built in the 19th century in the Norman style with ornamented balustrades and an ocean-view veranda. There are two standard rooms in the main house and eight suites set back from it, all decorated simply—think well-worn wooden floorboards, antique side tables, and mustard-colored rugs and bedclothes. The founding family's mahogany dining table and iron bathtub are still there, along with a spiral staircase that climbs to a cushion-packed turret commanding uninterrupted views over a half-mile-wide pebble bar—the pedral—to the Atlantic beyond. Guests head out on twice-daily forays by sea kayak, mountain bike, or horse, hoping for a close encounter with gray fox, guanaco, or the elusive mara, a Patagonian hare the size of a small dog, while petrels, albatrosses, and oystercatchers checker the sky overhead.
