If you can find the time to get to it, either traveling through Chile or the 8 hour drive from Santiago it is very much worth a visit to this refuge in the mountains. The lodge is set in the Monkey Puzzle/Arucaria Andes where the native forests and fantastic views of volcanos are stunning. Snow covered in winter. There are some not too difficult 2-4 hour walks nearby if you want to get right up into those Arucaria forests and lagons.
There are two lodges, one close to the restaurant and the pool which day visitors can also use, and another further in next to the Arucaria thermal pool, for staying guests only. Pretty hot at 40 degrees celicus. This is set in a gorge with a gyser at the end and monkey puzzle trees clinging to the cliffs above. Incredibly relaxing. During my visit they were constructing some indoor thermal baths which should be good in the winter.

Room Tip: Ask to stay in the lodge next to the Arucaria thermals as less to walk to the hot pool. A 300m walk to the restuarant however.
