Cultus Lake Resort is, as noted, a bare-bones resort on one of the most beautiful boatable Cascade lakes. The rooms have refrigerators (some), a cooktop and oven, sink, blender, a few dishes, assorted flatware and a few pots, a bathroom and fireplace. The beds come with a fitted sheet, but NOTHING ELSE, so bring all linens and kitchen equipment. The... More

We go to Cultus Lake several times in the summer with our boat. It is a a great lake with beauitiful views. Most lakes in central Oregon have a 5 mph speed limit, but Cultus doesn't. They have an excellent boat launch area--we take our boat to the far end where there is a long, sandy beach...people can camp there... More

I wanted to make sure that we put in a review for the wonderful time we had at Cultus Lake Resort the week of August 30th through September 6th. We have stayed previously, but it's been about ten years . After reading some of the negative reviews we got a little nervous, but we had nothing to worry about. Everyone... More

I was wondering why there were such conflicting reviews on Cultus Lake Resort. Some said the hosts were rude and others said how friendly they were. When I arrived at 3:30 PM and expecting to have dinner at the restaurant, Dan told me it was closed ("5 PM unless it closes early.") The next day it was closed all day... More

We stopped here on the way to Bend just for a coffee. We enjoyed the view so decided to stay for breakfast. The staff were really friendly and the service was quick. We spent more time here than we expected but it was worth it. Ate far too much.

We have gone to Cultus Lake for many,many years, and find it to be one of Oregon's most beautiful places. The lake is nestled in the mountains, great beaches, good winds for sailing, and well kept camping areas, boat ramps etc... And then there is the Lodge.....beautiful to look at..flowers are unbelievable, boat rentals are superb, with Seth at the... More

Spent a great day on the water and a outstanding breakfast. I ordered the chicken fried steak breakfast and what a meal. And where else can you watch a float plane come in for a meal? Great service and great food. No disappointment here. They also provide a all you can eat ribs that are smoked that are very good... More

The Cultus Lake Resort is a gem in the heart of the Oregon Cascades. The Campbell family has put a lot of work into the resort and it shows. It’s a great place to stop in for a meal while touring the Oregon Cascade Lakes, or better yet, rent a cabin, stay a while, and play on the lake. The... More

We had a large group and stayed for three nights last Memorial Day weekend (2014). I'm just now getting to this review, as we're in the process of booking it again this year. Last year we had the most amazing time with family, fishing, biking, hiking, playing on the SeaDoos, eating, sitting around the fire, and just enjoying the lake.... More
