“A peaceful haven in Chiloe”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 May 2012

Carmen and Marco are excellent hosts and do whatever they can to make one's stay perfect.
The rooms are comfortable and the food excellent. The honey from their own bees is delicious, especially spread on their freshly baked bread, and Marco's home smoked salmon is the best we have eaten. Carmen's Pisco Sours in the hot tub overlooking the bay, watching the hummingbirds flit from flower to flower and spotting dolphins is a treat.The views from the house are wonderful and it feels as if one is staying at a friend's home. My husband fished with Marco, I paddled around in a kayak and walked along the beach. We both drove around and explored the area. A car is good to have if you want to explore on your own as it is in a remote area which is part of the attraction.
If you want to see the north of Chiloe Island then this is a little far away for day trips so we stayed here 3 nights then 2 nights near Ancud in the north.

We had a very pleasant stay in the loge, located on a wonderfull island, the garden of the churches... Everything was perfect, the lodge is comfortable, the rooms are cosy, the food was fine and Carmen and marco are so friendly. The lakes and the rivers are amazing, flyfishing was a pleasure and we caught big trouts and salmon. When you take the car to go to the river, you drive through wonderfull areas in this beautifull country called Chile... What a wonderfull we had.

We stayed three days with Carmen and Marco, They greeted us like family and made us feel very welcome. The lodge, which they built themselves, is rustic yet perfectly comfortable, with a great view of the bay. Our room and bathroom were clean and the bed was excellent. Carmen prides herself on her meals, and we enjoyed all of her presentations of food, many of which were prepared in the Chilean manner. The highlight of the cocktail hour were the Pisco sours, the Chilean national drink. They were very special in that she used honey from their own hives. The best Pisco sours of our two month trip! Marco took us fly fishing one day, where we cast from a boat along the shore of a beautiful lake with success. Then Marco revealed that he liked to play chess, and we had two enjoyable games. One day we toured to a neighboring island with numerous little picturesque villages. Carmen checked our ferry ticket from Quellon and found that it didn't run on the day we planned. Carmen got on the phone for hours and got the travel agent to arrange different ferry arrangements.This meant that we had to leave their place a day early. We were disappointed but were very grateful for her diligence which prevented us from changing our whole schedule. The hospitality of Carmen and Marco was exceptional and our stay in the lodge very relaxing. The wood fired hottub was a plus!!! Chiloe Island is a lovely area to visit and Puerto Nativo Lodge is in an ideal location. We give it our highest recommendation.

My husband and I visited Chiloe as part of a three-month trip through South America. Meeting Carmen Escobar, the owner of Puerto Nativo, on the ferry to Quellon was the best thing that could have happened to us on the island. She invited us to come and stay at Puerto Nativo and together with Marco, her husband, she made it a very memorable time for us.

They spoiled us with wonderful food (Marco's Italian lamb with rosemary, Carmen's pisco sours and their home-made jamon serrano were especially good), showed us around the island (we even visited a local primary school where the kids were fascinated to here our tales) and even introduced us to bee-keeping. Marco took the time to show my husband Daniel around his hives, where they produce their own honey to sell on - and fascinating it was. We also got to kayak on the fjord and relax in the outdoor hot tub, overlooking the water and forested shores of this remote lodge.

We feel like we made friends away from home. A wonderful couple and a wonderful place.

My wife and stayed with Marco and Carmen over Christmas and New Years. They are very kind and accommodating and enthusiastically shared their beautiful home and surroundings with us. Our stay was very restful and relaxing as well as educational. The food was deliceous. We learned to bake bread and make pasta with Carmen and learned about caring for bees with Marco. Puerto Nativo is one of the very best places we have stayed in 20 years travelling in Chile.

Carmen and Marco have created a wonderful experience at their Puerto Nativo lodge. I felt both welcomed and very comfortable in my stay there. The weather was perfect and I fished for two days in nearby rivers and lakes and, through Marco's good guiding, was able to land the largest fish of a two month fishing trip in Patagonia. Carmen's food and homemaking will pamper you and make you feel the comforts of home. Puerto Nativo is located in the heart of Chiloe Island and sits on the shore of a lovely piece of the coast. Don't miss the chance to stay here if you are ever in Chiloe.

Our two days at Puerto Nativa were perfect. Carmen and Marco are wonderful and attentive hosts who lookedafter our every need. The food was particularly memorable: fresh seafood (caught that morning), homemade breads and cakes, eggs laid that day, homemade jams, fresh honey, fresh pasta and homegrown fruits and vegetables --finished off with delicious homemade liqueur! Activities available include scenic beach and road walks, biking (They offer two mountain bikes, perfect for the country roads), kayaking (although we didn't have time to try it) and soaking in the hot tub. The lodge is comfortable, clean and homey and, although the guest rooms are not big, they are nicely appointed and immaculate. All in all a great place to chill out in on Chilloe.

Additional Information about Puerto Nativo Flyfishing Lodge

Property: Puerto Nativo Flyfishing Lodge
Address: Isla Chiloe, Chile
Region: Chile > Los Lagos Region > Isla Chiloe
Hotel Style:
Ranked #32 of 59 B&Bs / Inns in Isla Chiloe
Number of rooms: 5
Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Tucked away on a hidden bay on what is already a fairly untrodden part of Chile, Puerto Nativo is definitely a destination with a difference. Carmen and Marco Ancaras chose this spot on the island of Chiloe in northern Patagonia especially to set up their dream home, and it isn’t difficult to see why. Overlooking one of the Estero Paildad - or ‘interior sea’ - bays, with a beach at the bottom of the garden and rolling green hills behind, they have built a beautiful, open-plan wooden house, very simply but tastefully furnished, that offers visitors a real home-from-home experience. You will arrive as guests, and almost certainly leave as friends; and probably not just with Marco and Carmen. ... more   less
