Since it was our anniversary we decided to upgrade from our tent to a yurt when staying at Olallie Lake Resort two weeks ago. The accommodations were very comfrotable with nice windows on the lake side of the Yurt...... The first night. Our second and the second and last night there we retired as the sun set and a slight drizzle started. By 2AM it was pouring down rain and we discovered that the yurt had many, many leaks. Flooding the living room, and bedroom number one, Luckily we were in bedroom number two which had only one medium size leak over the bed. When we woke up the entire structure was flooded. We cooked breakfast and prepared to leave
early. I thought it would be good to warn the staff that the yurt had a problem with leaks.
The manager Sam explained that she knew about it and that our yurt had a large tear in the canvas roof. She (Samantha) recommended that I send an email to the owner.
I received a reply. "The problem with the leaky roof is being addressed.
Thanks a lot, no expression of even sympathy for our discomfort. I recommend staying in Olallie in your own tent, you will be dryer and have an extra $200 to spend at the store.
Bummer an anniversary that we will never forget. Beautiful lake but the owner's have little regard for their guests, we won't return without our own accommodations. It was very obvious that the owners have known about this problem for some time but then in Oregon, who knows there are times it doesn't rain. Bill Edell
