Estancia Peuma Hue is a private ranch located within the grounds of Argentina’s first and largest national park–Parque Nacional Nahuel Huapi. The ranch spans some 500 acres, in the heart of Argentina’s Lake District, on the idyllic shores of the Lake Gutierrez.
Peuma Hue (place of dreams in the native Mapuche language) is the incarnation of the owner’s lifelong dream. The estancia features a main lodge and three independent log homes, where most of the guest rooms are located.

This lodge also features a large living and dining room with a stone fireplace overlooking the lakefront and the stables, as well as a fully equipped kitchen.
The Coihue Villa can accommodate up to 5 guests. It’s a perfect location in terms of both privacy and closeness to the Poplar House.
It features two double rooms – one upstairs and one downstairs – with a full bathroom with bathtub each, a living room with an extra twin bed or second couch, a fireplace, and a fully equipped kitchen. The Lake Bedroom located on the upper floor offers views of the lake and creek, while the Garden Bedroom is located on the ground floor and overlooks the lake and the Estancia’s vegetable garden.
Creek Villa was the only standing structure when the property was purchased. This bungalow features a double bedroom that can accommodate up to 4 guests adding two couches or extra twin beds if needed, a living room with a fireplace, a kitchenette, and a bathroom with a shower.
The yurts offer a “glamping” experience. Overlooking the lake and mountains, yurts can either be furnished with a king-size bed or two twin-size beds, plus an extra bed if needed. The yurts feature wooden floors, electric and firewood heating, a deck overlooking the lake, and a private bathroom with a shower and buthtub.
