This was perfect for our stay near Crater Lake! We stayed for a short visit with our three boys and we all loved it. Lots of room for everyone and it was so well decorated! The front porch was adorable and the boys played in the yard near the house. Annette was wonderful to work with and the house was immaculately clean! The proximity to Crater Lake allows for an early morning arrival to the Park. Highly recommend.
We had a family reunion for people from California, Canada, Alaska, Florida, North Carolina, and Pennsylvania. We booked two houses. Each place was terrific. The hostess went the extra mile to meet our needs. We cooked. We had two birthday parties. We loved walking around the area. The rooms and beds were comfortable. We had a great experience staying here to visit Crater Lake. The hostess even found kayaking for us through Oregon State parks at Collier State Park. Everything was clean. The upstairs bedroom had an a/c unit. Downstairs we opened the windows. The bathrooms were all up to date and very comfortable for 9 people between 2 houses.
We stayed in the cottage for 2 nights while visiting Crater Lake. If you're not staying in the park, there are not a lot of options in the summer. We were looking to book about a month in advance of our trip, and there was very little available, and we ended up being pleased with this place. We had a minor hiccup about the arrival time (we wanted to arrive at noon, which they said was not a problem, but then they weren't around when we got there). It all worked out fine in the end. Granted this isn't 4 stars in most other places, but considering the other motels and things we saw along the way, I can't imagine there is much better out there.
We found the cottage very, very small and cramped. Arrived during a heat spell and the portable air conditioner was insufficient to meet the need...requested a fan and host reluctantly provided one. So unsatisfied with the facility that did not meet our needs that we decided to stay only one night instead of the two we had reserved but host refused any refund...would not recommend this facility...
This location was very convenient to the south entrance of Crater Lake. However, there is nothing around there so be sure to bring what you need. The owners did a wonderful job renovating the cottages, which are very comfortable and provide all you need to sleep, cook and even do laundry. We stayed in 2 bedroom Mazama cottage and enjoyed our solitude. Recommended.
