LAKESIDE RETREATS ON OUR WISHLIST

NEW ZEALAND

Matakauri Lodge, Lake Wakatipu

Earmarked from an article in Vogue, this luxury lodge is immersed in nature, yet located just outside Queenstown. $$$$, matakaurilodge.com

GUATEMALA

Casa Palopó, Lake Atitlán

We've been eyeing Central America for several years, but a Forbes article reviewing Casa Palopó in late 2016 rekindled our interest. A remote destination like this would pair well with an urban adventure in Guatemala City. $$, casapalopo.com

UPSTATE NEW YORK, U.S.

Mirror Lake Inn (Lake Placid region)

We've longed to escape to the Adirondacks, particularly to witness the Fall display of colors. Mirror Lake Inn landed on our radar after being named one of the most beautiful lakeside hotels in the world by Condé Nast. $$, mirrorlakeinn.com

CHILE

Hotel Antumalal, Villarica Lake

Friends of ours have been urging us to visit Chile for several years, promising outdoor adventure with spectacular wine thrown in. The Telegraph's 2016 review of the this hotel popped up while researching and we've been watching them every since. $, antumalal.com

AUSTRALIA (TASMANIA)

Pumphouse Point, Lake St Clair

As we've met more and more Aussies in our travels, we have come to realize that Australia deserves several weeks of exploration. The southern island of Tasmania is a destination unto itself, and Pumphouse Point is listed time and time again on guides for the region. $, pumphousepoint.com.au
