Crystalwood Lodge
Reviewed July 28, 2011

Twenty members of our family rented Crystalwood Lodge for five nights and were very pleased with the facility. Ranging in age from 2 to 78, everyone found something fun to do during our stay, whether it was visiting on the decks, canoeing in the clear stream, birding, hiking, reading in the comfortable chairs in the living room, cooking in the great kitchen, or playing hide and seek! The house was very clean, and while the rooms were small, the beds were very comfortable. We really enjoyed visiting with Liz and two of her sled dogs, and hearing her stories of the Iditarod. Liz was helpful in suggesting nearby trails to hike and giving advice on Crater Lake. It was a very enjoyable and relaxing stay.

I was taking a road trip with my 10 year old dog, Cleo, through Southern and Central Oregon last week when I stumbled upon Crystalwood Lodge. Liz was very welcoming and accommodating with my last minute call to see if she had any rooms available for that evening.

The lodge is in a wonderful location--so peaceful and serene. Liz suggested several hikes for Cleo and myself as well as a visit to the nearby Fort Klamath museum. We had so much fun we ended up staying an extra night. Plus there is so much to do right there at the lodge--canoeing, hiking, visiting with other guests, and hearing Liz's amazing stories of training for and sledding in the 1150 mile Iditarod race across Alaska.

This lodge is not only a dream vacation for people, but a paradise for dogs. And Liz has thought of everything for the people guests as well as the dog guests. I will be back again and hopefully with more time to spend exploring this beautiful part of the country.

Our ladies hiking group voted on visiting Crater Lake. I found Liz and her accommodations on line. What a splendid surprise to find that our dogs were all welcome and the place was way more than anyone expected! It was like being at an out door amusement park! From watching Liz prepare the teams food, watching the team race across the property to actually feeding them meals. Having Brick the old loving sled dog walk with you on the property was my favorite. He just brought a peaceful Balto feeling to the place. He had stories to tell! The house is great with it's many rooms to chose from. Plus the kitchen is fun to cook and make gourmet meals in for the whole family. A family reunion is in order! That's when I plan to go again, there are enough rooms for my entire family! I am hoping that we will have the honor of Liz at dinner again and all those great stories about her adventures in Alaska when doing the Iditerod.

Great to see the 11 late teen/early twenty somethings have a blast out in the country with fishing, canoeing, hiking, biking, and Crater Lake. Kids loved the sled dogs and hanging with them. The kitchen was large and useful for feeding the 13 of us. The entire week was peaceful and a joy. Highly recommend for large families or gatherings that want to be active outdoors.

My family rented the entire Crystalwood Lodge for a Labor-day weekend reunion, and it was the most memorable and relaxing vacation we've ever had! The lodge met all our needs - we used all 7 bedrooms and baths for 15 people. The rooms are charming - each named for a stop on the Iditarod Trail (the owner and her team of dogs participated and finished in the Iditarod in 2008). The rooms were clean and well appointed. The kitchen was magnificent for cooking all our meals - large, well equipped and stocked (even spices for guest use!) and with a huge walk-in cooler for all our food. Coffee was provided as well. The grounds are beautiful, and there were canoes available for a reasonable fee to go out onto the marshlands and lake. We enjoyed a float trip, and were treated to a family of raccoons fishing along the water's edge. Perhaps the greatest treat was watching the owner, Liz, and her team of sled dogs as they exercised in the mornings. She hooked the team up in their harnesses for a run, pulling Liz on her ATV, and off they went, tails wagging and with the excited yipping of 18 enthused sled dogs. We were given an interesting account of their Iditarod race and our grandkids LOVED petting the dogs. Crystawood Lodge is pet-friendly and there are nice touches for our four-legged friends (pet bathing area, doggy biscuits, clean towels, etc.). We did not bring our dog but next time we will. The lodge is very clean and there is no doggy smell or shedding hair to contend with. However, I would caution anyone with a true dog allergy that this might be a problem for you. Crystalwood Lodge is very close to Crater Lake, but we didn't go because we are locals and go there frequently. Instead, we hiked around the area and took a two mile hike up to Puck Lake. There are at least 5 miles of hiking trails right around the lodge itself. Our reunion was such a hit that we are determined to go back every year with the whole family. Liz made us feel so welcomed, and I can't say enough about her and her "fantabulous" lodge.

This is a lovely place to stay in a great location near Crater Lake National Park. The rooms are very nice, and there is a wonderful kitchen where guests can prepare their meals. We enjoyed learning all about sled dogs from the owner Liz, and she took great care of our dog while we spent one day at Crater Lake. There are also lots of opportunities to walk and play with your dog on the property. I would definitely recommend this B&B to anyone visiting the area with or without their dog(s).
