The cabins float on the water and the views are breathtaking !! The wife and I go there for the fishing which was good, the owner and staff are all topnotch. No T.V. no phones , a place to get away and relax !!!! Vern Sandmann

This place is so ooh cool. The floating cabins are located on remote Ross lake. The location is breathtaking. The lodges are simple but clean and very nice. The staff is very friendly and helpful. This is a one of a kind place. You either take a boat to get there or hike the two miles there and back. You... More

I have been going to Ross Lake Resort for 20+ years, and each year I look forward to it more than the last. It's always beautiful, cabins always clean, staff always friendly and helpful. No cell phones, no tv, no wifi, no roads, absolutely no distractions from the beauty of Ross Lake. Hiking, fishing, swimming, boating, napping.... It's perfect.

My wife and I stayed at the Ross Lake Resort October 13-15, 2014. It is located on Ross Lake in the North Cascades National Park/Recreational Area. It is one of the few parks in the National Park system that does not charge an entrance fee. We had a great time. To get there you will have to take two boats... More

We did not stay at the resort, but we parked just off highway 20 amd hiked about 2 miles down to a ferry dock via speed boat to be taken to the resort dock. There we rented boats for the day. If you decide to do this, may I suggest you go north and ride the the perimeter of the... More

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
