"Modern and stylish"
An extremely beautiful and very special place, very isolated (in a good way), in the middle of nature, but all cabins and rooms are modern and stylish. Food in the restaurant was excellent too! But the best has to be the views over the lake and the calmness of the forests surrounding it!

"Comfortable Lodge in Stunning Location"
In March 2019 my family and I stayed four nights at the lodge. Our room was clean and comfortable with a great view of Lake General Carrera. The property itself is gorgeous and has numerous hiking trails. The staff was friendly and helpful. The food was very good. The lodge is remote but it's a great base for exploring the Aysen region of Chilean Patagonia. We would definitely stay there again
Beautiful views and an extremely calm environment, plus delicious food

"Lovely lodge in a stunning location"
We loved our one-night stay at Mallin Colorado! My spouse and I arrived late in the evening and were immediately welcomed by the manager. Our room was very comfortable - hot shower, very comfortable bed, and beautiful interior design that reflects the natural beauty of the area. We also appreciated the nice little touches, like knit booties to borrow, and complimentary tea in the lounge room.
Everything was perfect and we’ve had a relaxing time. The room was clean and individually designed by the owner! All are very new built considering ecological elements. The view onto the lake is awesome and the dinner was just excellent! Paula, Felipe and all their stuff are open-hearted, honestly and gave us insider tips for exploring further Patagonia! We heartily can recommend that place to everyone!
