We stayed for a long weekend with friends of ours in July. The view was so wonderful--you could just sit on the back deck for hours and not want to leave. You could see the fish jumping, bats at night (dusk) and we even saw a bald eagle once! All the cabins are very private, and do not overlook each other and you can't see anyone else either.
The cabins are well located to see many local waterfalls and take short or long hikes from a short car ride trip. Crater Lake is also about 1 -1 1/2 hours away, and well worth the day trip. Very close by is a fish hatchery, which is fun to see and interesting.
The cabins are rustic (mis-matched, 70's decor), but have everything you need. The bedroom in our cabin--the far right one--was lovely and quiet. The air conditioning worked very well, though it was odd that there weren't screens in the windows in case we decided not to use it. The kitchen had everything that we needed and we also had a big dining table so that was great.
Wish we could have stayed longer! Thank you Randy!
