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

Paddle boards, kayaks, even a solar/bike powered patio boat! This is a funky, fun place to spend a day on and in the water. Amenities such as restrooms, restaurant, bar and accommodations are available. The staff was very friendly and helpful. When we visited, on a 100 degree day in Bend, the temperature was a comfortable 85 degrees. Lots of... More

The marina rents boats for a reasonable fee, and there are plenty of picnic places along the shoreline. You can take a picnic lunch , or eat at the... More

We ride our snowmobiles up here every year for lunch in the wintertime, so when we are in the area this year we thought we would check it out in the summertime. The food was delicious as usual. The sweet potato tater tots were incredible! I didn't care for the nachos, but it just might be my tastes. The chili... More

Excellent accommodations. We rented a house which was nicely decorated and well-equipped with everything we needed. We cooked in a few times and ate in the lodge, too, which was fantastic! We all were very pleased with our meals, both breakfast and dinner. A must have: a Bloody Mary which was to die for!!! Wendy is an outstanding hostess and... More

Fun overnight for us bend residents looking for a quick getaway. We stayed in a cute rustic cabin for the night after riding in from MT Bachelor on fat tire bikes. The staff was very helpful. Easy fun getaway!

I have called Central Oregon home for more than 20 years and have enjoyed Elk Lake as a summer destination for years, but it was not until my husband's 50th birthday that we discovered what Elk Lake Resort has to offer in the winter. Wow! We spent two lovely nights with friends in the resort's largest home. We rode in... More

We were so fortunate to spend the Christmas holiday at Elk Lake Resort. We took the snow cat in and arrived in a winter wonderland. The scenery is amazing whether you are looking out from your cabin, cross country skiing, on a snow mobile or just taking a walk. Our cabin was cozy and comfortable with a well equipped kitchen...

Stayed in the camping cabins with my snow mobile parked directly outside. Great hosts and perfect basic accomodations. Heat and light (propane powered) were fine and the room was quite warm and cozy. I recommend it to anyone.
