Tipiliuke

Estancia Tipiluike

Tipiliuke is nine-room county lodge in northern Argentine Patagonia and is one of our favorite lodges in Argentina.

The house is tucked into a beech grove in the heart of a 50,000-acre working cattle ranch—Cerro de los Pinos—founded in 1909. Gauchos still work the land, as their families have for three generations.

This aerial view of Tipiliuke Lodge shows a red roofed exterior lit by bright lights and surrounded by green grass.

The Chimehuin and Quilquihue rivers frame the property with 17 miles of frontage; their crystal-clear waters are renowned for trout pools—home to monstrous browns up to 30 inches.
