Just love going to Elk Lake to kayak or sail...Always go by the lodge for some great ice cream, or a good beer...The food is so so, but served on a picturesque deck overlooking Elk Lake...There are boats to rent, and a party boat to take you on the Lake for a picnic dinner.. The lodge is very old school...not... More

The lake is beautiful, the resort is conveniently located near all the other cascade lakes, and the marina and restaurant have great service and views. Whether youre camping close by or just popping in for a beer and to kayak/paddleboard this is a great place to go.

It's been a year since we had lunch here, and since we planned to drive the Cascade Lakes scenic byway, I checked the Elk Lake Resort website to make sure the resort was still open. I was pleased that it was, so we planned our route to have lunch here. But when we arrived, we found a sign in the... More

Several people recommended the restaurant here, calling it exceptional and the best place to eat near Mt. Bachelor. I think people like it because you can sit outside on the deck overlooking the lake on a nice day and have a beer (their beer list is quite good). We came for lunch and the experience was awful. It look nearly... More

We just went there to rent a pontoon boat and use the showers. The pontoon boat they gave us had a top to pull up for shade. Probably would have worked great if it hadn't of had so many rips in it. The showers, the heater went out of, so they offered us a cold shower for the full price... More

Took a day trip up to Elk Lake and rented paddle boards and had lunch. We had a great time and had the best spicy pineapple margarita with lunch! We would definitely come back and stay longer. Make time to stop at some of the other lakes along the Cascade Lakes hwy.

22 friends from Awbrey Glen chose Elk Lake to spend a "Blue Moon" evening on the lake. We enjoyed dinner on the deck with Hanna as our waitress- who made sure we were served in time to be paddling when the moon showed up. Thanks for being so accomadating!! No complaints from us!!

Cabins were a bit rundown and very very dark! Shame you pay so much a night and have to clean the cabin yourself before leaving. The activities are a bit expensive as is the wood for the fire. A bit odd that anyone can go and hang out for the day when I was spending hundreds to stay for a... More

Hello, Thank you for sharing your thoughts on the Vintage cabins. I would say that I agree with you, and as new owners of the resort since late 2013, the remodeling of the Vintage cabins is high on our priority list. As with any small business, the upgrades and improvements to the property have to be done as cash flow... More
