We decided to rent a buoy at Cultus Lake Resort last summer rather than driving from lake to lake. What a great decision that was! It's such a short drive from Bend and the resort has everything you need to enjoy your day. There is a small store at the resort to pick up your basics like ice, beer and... More

Cultus Lake Resort has always been a favorite of mine. The lodge/restaurant is clean, inviting and the outside seating and view are incredible. The food is reasonably priced and absolutely delicious. Went up there and spent the day with my daughter in law and grandsons and had a fabulous lunch and then enjoyed swimming in the lake. Highly recommended!

Whenever we have friends and family in town we take the High Cascade Lakes Hwy and we stop in at the various lodges and resorts and lakes. We usually have lunch, icecream or drinks at Cultus Lake. We love sitting on the deck (if it isn't too windy) and enjoying the cool breeze and the lake! We've not found the... More

The lake is absolutely beautiful and we ended up having a very fun day on the lake. We rented jet skis and paddle boards and had a blast. The guy at the marina was nice and professional. The issue was we rented jet skis from 10-2, we got to the lake at 11:00 which was totally our fault for a... More

We stopped here for lunch, on the deck after kayaking on another lake. It was very busy and the waiter handled it all with speed and courtesy. We ordered everything from burgers to salads. Everyone said their's was excellent. I had the "Superfood Salad", it had quinoa, artichoke hearts, tomatoes, served on a bed of arugula, sprinkled with grated parmesan... More

A beautiful lake in high country. Days sunny and warm for water activities are prelude to cool overnight temperatures for time around the campfire and then good sleeping temperatures. The excellent dining facilities allow our party to enjoy excellent food or prepare their own in the cabin. We were able to have our four families together or go to their... More

The Cultus Lake Resort is one of the finest destinations in the U.S. for a week, weekend or just for the day. Expertly maintaind and operated by a large family this small lakeside retreat offers the look and feel of the 1950's but with modern jetskis, boat rentals and paddle boards! A place where our kids can enjoy camfire stories,... More

We also spent a week, our first. It was hot, amid 80's to 90's. The lake is about two miles long and a 1/2 mile and is a fantastic place to swim and do water sports. Our boat measures the lake temperature as 68 in the middle and 75 degrees nearer shore. The water temperature was similar to Lake Shasta,... More

We spent 7 nights at Cultus Lake Resort for the first time this July and I only wish we had found it sooner. It is a wonderful place to make memories that will last a lifetime, especially if you have kids. Even for our teenage girl with no friends, no wi-fi or tv, it was a great opportunity to just...
