One of the smaller properties that lie in and around Puerto Varas, the Casa Molino Guest House is a real gem! Offering a much “smaller” experience all round, it has just a handful of rooms and, as such, really prides itself on the service and attention to detail given to each and every client. Combined with outstanding views out across the lake and a very good menu and, while not out and out 5 star, it is a superb option.


Located 6 km from downtown Puerto Varas, this guest house is set on a 1.5 hectare of landscaped gardens and is equipped with 11 guest rooms, 5 suites and 6 superior rooms to take full advantage of the magnificent views of the Lake Llanquihue and Volcanoes Osorno, Tronador and Calbuco. Due to its location outside of town (about a 20 minute drive on gravel road for some part), this is not the ideal base for someone wanting to stay in the area for an extended period of time and do a lot of activities or eat out in town.


The bedrooms are not overly elaborate but like the rest of the property has a good standard of elegant furnishings. Almost every room makes the most of the light it receives and is unique in décor, which is elegant with a definite feel home from home. The Suites have also feature chimneys and a terrace.


A 2 storey house, the building looks directly out onto the lake, as do certain rooms (it is definitely worth the extra to have that view in the morning!). The main areas are decorated in a simple style with a lovely seating area surrounding the main fireplace.


What is the key here is the fact that it is owner managed and operated, allowing for a far more personal and flexible experience for the guests that come and stay here. We like the direct beach access that the property has which is 90 steps away. The main reason to come and stay is for the views and the outstanding service that truly make you feel like you are at home. The clientele tends to be seniors and honeymooners. Guests have access to one of the kitchens as well.

Great location, superb service, outstanding views
