Quemquemtreu Lodge Wins Best Accommodations

Best Accommodations goes to Quemquemtreu Lodge

Most of the lodges on this list are plush by any standard. But none goes so far as Quemquemtreu Lodge, which offers each guest private bathrooms, fireplaces, and dining rooms in spacious double-Quequentreu Lodgebedroom suites. Nor does that come at the expense of a communal atmosphere—guests can enjoy snacks and drinks in a cozy bar area, which includes pool for those who know how to shoot. With access to two excellent trout rivers on its massive estancia, Quemquemtreu Lodge is a great option, and larger parties especially may enjoy the extra private space.
