If you are looking for a family-friendly get-away in the cool pines, then look no further! CCL is a family favorite; so much so, that we have stayed at the Lodge three times in the past 10 months. We have stayed in the Pioneer's Cabin, Fisherman's Cabin, and Trailbunks. Both the Fisherman's and Pioneer's cabins have amazing lofts with four... More

I needed a quick room at the last minute. The lady at the desk gave me a great rate. This trip I just needed a bed so I stayed at the motel, not in a cabin. The motel room is so nice, it doesn't have coffee or room service but you go up to Christipher Creek for the beauty and... More

We ended up staying here on a fluke--the place in Winslow we were hoping for was full. So glad we stayed there! Very cute cabins! Ours had a wood stove and we were able to buy a Duralog for $3.50, which burned for a few hours. Had a small fridge, small stove, coffee maker, and kitchen supplies. Rustic, beautiful setting,...

The staff was very friendly and attentive. We definitely plan on returning back for a longer stay. Love that the are pet friendly and have a park for the... More

We stayed in one of the motel rooms. It was very clean, comfortable bed and just an overall great stay. There are 2 very good restaurants close by that are in walking distance. Very friendly people, felt welcomed. Lots of squirrels and a creek right next to it. Looked like a great playground for kids too.

Loved this place and will be back!!! Great Price, Freindly People and Spacious Comfortable Cabin. Our Cabin was bigger than I expected and had everything we needed. They describe it as rustic but it is well maintained. The most comfortable bed we have ever had in a cabin. They are so dog freindly they even have their own small dog... More

We stayed two nights at Christopher Creek Lodge, it was very cozy and the people there were very friendly and helpful. We will go back for another visit soon. Affordable, clean and right next to the water.

My son and I stayed over the weekend in a trail bunk room. We were looking for fun hiking along the creek and geocache adventures. The staff was friendly and let us check in about an hour early. The room was super clean and cute. I am glad we got the duraflame and charcoal. We had a nice meal at... More

Family owned and very friendly and helpful. Only wish there were more places to eat closeby as we did not like the food at the Steakhouse and the Landmark was closed during the week. SO happy it is dog friendly as that was a major factor in us staying there. Wouldn't be a family trip without bringing her. We are... More
