We reached the Wallowa Lake Lodge late in the day after a wonderful but long ride up from Portland. The WLL is a classic mountain Lodge from the early 20th century. The owners manage to keep it up to date in all the important respects The restaurant serves good food, not too fancy. We had dinner and a breakfast there... More

I love everything about old lodges...no tv's, no clocks, small rooms and the wonderful ambiance. The grounds are beautiful with Adirondack chairs on the creek and the lake. They did have internet for those of you that need it. This lodge became home for two days because of the pouring (as opposed to drizzling) rain. We sat by the fireplace... More

We stayed at the Wallowa Lake Lodge many years ago. Enjoyed it then and had even a better time on a recent visit. The rooms have been update without loosing the :classic lodge" experience. The lobby area is as inviting as ever and harkens back to the New Deal days. Front desk service was impeccable. This is a true find... More

This historical lodge is situated at the head of the lake 5 miles out of Joseph. It has a lovely lawn going down to the lake, but unfortunately trees obscured a view of the lake from our 2nd storey room. Although not modern, the facilities were adequate and the lighting in particular exceeded many more modern hotel rooms.

If you like history, as we do, you'll appreciate this lodge. But if you lean more towards "upscale" and convenience, this is not the place for you. Granted, we did stay in one of their smaller rooms, but, boy, was it ever tiny! Very little room to even walk around in. The sink was in the bedroom, there was no... More

My wife and I stayed 2 nights at the Wallowa Lake Lodge. The staff was very friendly and helpful. It was their last weekend to be open and there were only a few guests. The bedroom we stayed in was small as one would expect from a 1920's vintage lodge. The bed was comfortable and the lodge was quiet. Nice... More

I booked a 3rd floor balcony room at the lodge expecting to see beautiful lake views and was very disappointed. There is a line of trees long the river that block the view of the lake. Other than that, there is a beautiful large lawn with chairs along the river's edge. Unfortunately we were there late in the summer and... More

This is a carefully restored lodge on Wallowa Lake. We stayed in the Spruce cabin which has the best lakefront view. It has 2 bedrooms, living room and full kitchen. the interior is knotty pine and it was spotless. There is a gas fireplace, although due to the warm weather we didn't use it. From the cabin the lodge itself... More

This lodge is set next to the lake with a beautiful lawn and picnic area. The little community surrounding the lodge is mega-commercialized which really distracts from the calm remote setting of the lodge - but it can be avoided. The plumbing in the rooms was old but sufficient. We slept fine eventhough the mattress/springs swayed like a hammock. We... More

The location of the lodge is great and the staff is friendly and cooperative. On the negative side, our mattress seemed more like a waterbed than a traditional mattress. It should have been discarded years ago. The dinner was wonderful on Monday. Unfortunately they were not open on Tuesday and Wednesday! Other good restaurants are few and far between.
