If you want a true NW experience with the authentic surroundings of a real cabin, this is the right resort. There is noway to describe this experience you really have to see it to believe it. It maybe difficult for some who has limited mobility, but i would just ask. I have never seen such beautiful surroundings, comfortable yet real... More

My husband and I LOVE Ross Lake Resort. The lodging itself (modern cabin) is basic and dated, but is clean and has everything you need. The location, of course, it what makes this place amazing. It is truly spectacular.

I was recently able to book a stay at Ross Lake Resort (VERY difficult to get a reservation) and it was a truly wonderful experience. The visit began with driving across Diablo Dam and parking at the Seattle City Light ferry landing, where passengers load their gear onto the boat for a roughly 30-minute ride to a dock just below...

spent a few days at the Rose Lake resort. Quaint rustic cabins floating on the North side of the lake near the dam. Very tranquil with killer views. Remember to bring your food and drink as the resort only offers accommodation. No village store to go to to get those things you forgot. great hiking and you can rent kayaks,... More

We decided to try out Ross Lake Resort during our first visit to the North Cascades. After hiking down to the dock, we were picked up by the water taxi and taken right to our cabin. The cabins are simple and somewhat dated, but clean and comfortable. Our cabin had a full kitchen and cooking gear, so we had everything... More

We didn't stay at the resort since we were touring in an RV, but we went up for the day to spend the day on Ross lake. We took the Diablo Lake Ferry ($10/each way, run by the electric company that owns the dams and hydro stations) which was met by a truck from the resort (which then brought us... More

We'd never heard of this place despite being native Washingtonians. I came across it on TripAdvisor. Apparently we got very lucky because I happened to call right after a cancellation and was therefore able to get us a couple of nights at the resort. Normally the place is booked solid a year in advance. The folks at the front desk... More

We have been vacationing at Ross Lake Resort for over 25 years. Yes, we are mature adults. The resort is run and maintained by a great, efficient and super staff. The setting is pristine in this day of hurry and race. The scenery is awesome and undescribable. Catching fish is an extra. Just the serenity of the mountains and water... More

Requires some effort and planning to get there, but worth it for sure. Not accessible via public road, so you'll either need to hike in, or take a boat-truck-boat shuttle to arrive at the resort. Staff was great, and although the cabins are rustic, they are quite comfortable. Exploring the beauty of Ross Lake is made easy with available kayak... More

Staying at Ross Lake Resort was the most amazing part of our 10 day trip across the PNW. We did the 1 mile hike down to the dock and called the resort for the water taxi. For $2/person we were picked up by a catamaran and taken to the resort. It was early in the morning so we rented a... More
