We've never stayed at Elk Lake (except at a private lodge), but on September 21st we were out exploring the Cascades Lakes/Century Drive area, and decided to grab a bite to eat at the resort. We were surprised by the beers on tap, and tried a double IPA from Boneyard while we decided what to eat. Again, we chose the same thing: a yummy, huge, tasty corned beef sandwich. The food was great, the service was good, and the view from the outside deck was to die for. Elk Lake is gorgeous, there were several sailboats and other boats on the lake, and it was the perfect place to spend a few hours on the last day of our week in the Bend area. We'll definitely check out the resort as a place to stay in the future.
