Cabra Corral, Posada Terrazas del Lago: "on the edge of the lake" Top 5 Page for this destination Provincia de Salta Hotel Tip by vtveen

Driving along the lake Posada Terrazas del Lago is almost invisible - just a wall and an entrance door - because the building itself is built into the slope. It is a small-scaled hotel with only four rooms, which all have a large window with incredible panoramic views of the lake and surrounding mountains. Waking up with such a view is almost unbelievable and a fantastic place to start a new day !!
Next to the reception desk it has a restaurant/sitting room with also an outside terrace and deck.
Rather steep stairs brought us to a kind of ‘beach’ along the lake with a small ‘harbour’ and a dock. Sitting in the sun we enjoyed this Argentinean ‘dolce far niente’ after our road trip from Cafayate and to the Cabra Corral Dam till the sun disappeared behind the hills.
We had diner on the terrace and ordered the local speciality: pejerreye a la provensal (a fish from the lake), papa andinas salteada, ensalada, panqueque de manzana and a white wine ‘Etchart Privado Torrontes’ from Cafayate. A great finish of a great day.
Although a small and familiar hotel we were a little bit disappointed by the service and personal contact. When arriving in the afternoon there was a bit of panic about our reservation and it turned out that our room wasn’t ready. Posada Terrazas del Lago is a family owned hotel and we expected more personal contact; perhaps the language barrier was the problem.
Still I can recommend a stay in this hotel on the edge of the Cabra Corral Lake; having just four rooms a reservation would be advisable.
