Most of our guests have expressed comments about their visit to our lodge. We have selected only a few, to illustrate what is just a sample of a very large collection that we treasure. These inscriptions are mostly in books at our fishing library, in letters, or in photographs of the anglers that are displayed in several places at the lodge. We wanted to cover different periods over a span of almost 40 years.

“When we set out on this trip I was thinking only of fishing, not realizing we’d be given the lovely bonus of staying with you in your house enjoying your wonderful company & cooking…aside from Adrian’s outstanding river guidance. You are masters at making strangers feel at home, thank you, thank you.

“Thank you both for the lovely time we had at your beautiful lodge. We thoroughly enjoyed every minute of your gracious hospitality and delicious cuisine…not to mention seeing your beautiful garden, river and countryside.  I wouldn’t have been the least surprised to have seen Adam and Eve appear in your Eden like surroundings! ”

“Just back from Cumilahue Lodge. Absolutely fantastic!  Adrian and Patricia are some of the most delightful and gracious hosts I have ever seen. In spite of rainy weather with very high water levels we had an excellent team of boatmen, good fishing (would have been extraordinary if Cyndie and I were better anglers) We enjoy very much the attention to details that made our stay there unforgettable...Great Chilean home cuisine. Superlative wines and great conversation. Perfecto!  The housekeeping personnel were not only great but also so pleasant and effective in doing all the little things that made our stay so special. One of the best vacation of my life.”
