We have been several times at La Baita in Conguillío. First time about ten years ago when Isabel and Luca had a small number of cabins. Now they have full rooms, dining room and sophisticated services like hot tubs and massages. The best of the place by far is the people. You really feel like a guest in a friend's house. Isabel, Francisco, Francisca and the chef really made their best. Good food, good wine and excellent conversation.
The national park is spectacular. You should enjoy the Sierra Nevada trek. In my opinion one of the best treks in Chile. Everyone heads to remote Torres del Paine or Fitz Roy for that kind of scenic treks but Conguillío has nothing to envy to Torres del Paine in a much more affordable experience. If you come to La Baita do not expect luxury, but friendliness and warmth.

This a great place to disconnect and be surrounded by the Conguillio National Park. The place is very 'eco', meaning that you have electricity only for a few hours a day; the shower never gets really hot, although, on the other hand, the cabaña itself was well-heated. For some odd reason, breakfast on the second day was much more ample than on the first, as was dinner (the dinner itself, by the way, is also 'eco', leaning towards vegetarian). In fact, the whole place has a bit of an odd atmosphere, but in a friendly way. And it (especially the communical spaces) is just so cosy, decorated very tastefully by the owner (an Italian anthropologist), that I would return in a snap. Recommended. (Needless to say: no wifi.)

The beauty of this area is wonderful and this lodge is the closest accommodation to the sites. Our room had a wonderful view. There was no hot water or power on our first day. They run on generators so there is power for 3 hours in the evening, so if you need to read, bring a flashlight. The food was adequate......breakfast is included and dinner is available for an additional charge. At the time we were there (March) none of the facilities were operational (hot tub etc.) and the place had a "closed down" feel -untidy grounds, trash cans outside the front door etc. There is a lovely huge fireplace in the main dining room area (tables with benches). Given that this is well off the beaten track, it was a delightful place to stay while we hiked and took in the sites during the day. The hiking is excellent!

I'm so glad that this place has made it into the sphere of 'Trip Advisor' reviews because even though it is not exactly great value for money, in terms of the room that you get, this national park is absolutely out of this world and one should be willing to pay a premium for staying here. Right from the doorstep, if you are staying at La Baita, you can walk out across a moonscape of lava sand or scree towards the base of a perfectly beautiful volcano. It's as if you are in a vast Zen garden with chunks of lava, adventurous flowering plants and grasses near the base, jutting out of smooth, black gravel surrounds. Then a bit further up the road in the park you have a pristine little lake with a forest on one side and the edge of a lava flow on the other, where the lava is very different from that sandy stuff further down the valley: here you have really rugged masses of ah-ah lava; and yet there is a trail through it so that you can have a marvellous little walk round the whole lake. Further still, you have fantastic walks through the forest, of which the woodpecker trail, 'Los Carpenteros,' is perhaps the very best, though the circuit near the ranger station, is also very nice if you don't have time and energy for more adventurous walking. You will see beautiful Arucaria forests, mountains, lakes. . . . This was one of the most beautiful areas that we have seen in two successive, yearly visits to this part of the world, the previous one of which took us to Torres del Paine, El Chalten, Cochamo, Ushuaia and the Tierra del Fuego N.P. -- all very famous places for scenery.

As for La Baita itself, we took our meals in the very spacious, comfortable main building where in the evenings they built a fire in a well-vented fire pit even when there were only two or three of us around. It was late November and still a bit cold (in fact snows at the higher elevations made some of the trails impassable beyond a certain point, though this didn't cramp our style at all). Our room was spacious and bright, with a sink in the foyer, separate from the bath, and a place also near the front door to store boots and wet things, for the sake of keeping the room itself tidy. The double bed was comfortable.

La Baita seems to cater mostly to groups, though we stayed for three or perhaps four nights (this was some months ago, now) and got a limited 'cross section' to view: a couple of extended families, with eight or ten members; a 'stag party' for a wedding; and school groups. Perhaps solo travellers and couples find it relatively difficult to get here? We had a rental car, from Temuco.

I have the impression, though it is no more than this, that the very kind, helpful woman who runs and perhaps owns the place was once in partnership with someone, that this partnership has dissolved, and that she is struggling a little to stay on top of things. If you book via email, try to stay in touch from time to time to make sure that your booking is secure, that you have not been forgotten about, or the like. Our hostess struck me in the end as a bit disorganized. But my word, what a great place to visit. I'd go back like a shot.
