For more information on booking the Hacienda Del Lago for private events or retreats please contact Lydia Harlacher.

The old Hacienda del Lago is located in the pre-Columbia fishing village of Ajijic, Mexico, a less than 30 minute drive from the Guadalajara International Airport. The village is encircled by the mountain range Sierra Madre Mountains and is situated on the shores of Lake Chapala, Mexico’s largest freshwater lake.  The Hacienda was designed by Gene Fortune in an authentic Mexican architecture, which is breathtaking both inside and out. This spectacular estate is nestled in the village a mere two blocks from Lake Chapala and four blocks from the Plaza.

With over 7,000 square feet of living space and 3,200 square feet of the courtyard area, the sprawling hacienda is a perfect balance of beauty and peace. The Hacienda is well known and touted as the most amazing residence in the Village.  During the past year, additional remodeling and updating have been completed to restore it to its original magnificence. It truly exceeds all expectations of even the most discriminating client.

The courtyard and pool areas are impeccably landscaped, including magical romantic night lighting to accent the beautiful residence.  The Hacienda is appointed with elegant furniture and unique works of art and is fully equipped with Waterford crystal and fine china making entertaining an unforgettable experience. 

The Hacienda is a perfect setting to host seminars and retreats. Now, with the restoration of the chapel, there are endless possibilities. The Hacienda sleeps eight (8) comfortably. For large groups, there are many B&Bs and hotels within a short walking distance that are very reasonably priced.

There are so many indescribable and wonderful rooms to explore that only photos and a personal tour can do proper justice. Please see the complete Digital Portfolio below.
