We spent two nights at this isolated mountain lake with a rustic, but well serviced lodge, a beautiful 75 mile drive from Eugene on Highway 58..A busy skiing highway to Williamette Pass during prime ski season, for Thanksgiving, traffic was light and we could appreciate our climb to the Cascades and Crescent Peak in the distance, beyond frozen meadows.
The hotel team was very friendly and responsive, price was very reasonable, the beer and wine good and the hotel cooked us a great Thanksgiving dinner. Bigfoot showed up, the weather was cold and it was fun looking out at the iced lake from our warm haven. There were about 30 or 40 people there from all over Oregon and we met a couple who are our new friends. After dinner we all relaxed in the lodge room among pictures and other memorabilia in front of a roaring fire. Hot toddies in order! The rooms were small but everything worked and was clean as a pin. Think, staying at Grandma's house for the holidays 50 years ago. We will definitely be back.
