The Hotel Casa Anna is a charming Bed and Breakfast with 5 guest rooms (4 double room suites, 1 room with four beds) in Pueblo Garzón, Province of Maldonado. The 7,000 square foot brick building features 1920s architecture as well as locally made furniture and artwork. Casa Anna can be rented as a whole unit or as individual suites. A variety of activities await the traveler to this rustic inland destination, such as superb horseback riding, amazing opportunities for birdwatching, and delicious cooking classes.
Local artisans made the wrought-iron beds and the cabinets in the kitchen and living room at Casa Anna, while the stones on the fireplaces come from a nearby quarry. Photography by owner Mr. Summers, framed in pieces of salvaged lichen-covered fencing, hangs in almost every room.
A quiet town with gravel streets, Pueblo Garzón historically enjoyed a population boom as the first stop on a railway line built by the British between Rocha and Montevideo. Additional growth occurred when Route 9, the main road to Brazil, passed through the town. Now the railways are long gone and Rt.9 has been rerouted, leaving behind a small community. Enjoy splendid scenery, a small plaza filled with eucalyptus, acacia and palm trees, fine cuisine, and the gaucho character of this town in Uruguay’s countryside.

Our guide and driver were very good with their knowledge and were very helpful with our questions. It was a very pleasant visit that would have been impossible to do on our own. Hotels and restaurants were fantastic. The special places we got to go to, like the kitchens, were great. Enjoyed the entire trip!
