Anyone who has been to Crater Lake knows that lodging is an issue. My wife and I chose Crater Lake Inn and Retreat due to its proximity to Crater Lake. Despite looking close on a map, it was a littler farther than I thought it would be (just under an hour). Arriving at Crater Lake Inn and Retreat was a bit different because it took a number of dirt roads and the Inn sits behind a house. I will admit I was a bit nervous pulling in the driveway. However, my entire perception changed when I met the owner and saw the accommodations. Everything was brand new and incredibly clean. The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom was excellent. After a good night's sleep a very nice breakfast was provided. My wife and I stayed at a number of BNB's as we toured Oregon over the course of a week and this location had the best breakfast and the best room. I highly recommend this location if in the Crater Lake area.
We recently stayed in this cute place. We were two women on a road trip to Crater Lake and were very tired after driving so many hours. It was getting dark and we had a little trouble finding this retreat, but Scott stayed on the phone with us and guided us in. He carried our suitcases and brought us ice and we were so grateful. The morning breakfast was perfect and the bed was comfy and cozy. I would recommend the upper rooms.
This is a nice place to stay, and the owner is quite attentive. However if you get there at night, you should know it is a little of the road. You won't find somewhere right next to it to have dinner, you need to go back to the highway. It's not far away, but I guess because you have to off road a little it can be inconvenient for some people. The continental breakfast is pretty complete. The owners live in one house and the rooms where you stay are in another one right next to it.
In my opinion a true B&B has a full breakfast. This inn has a continental BF. It is, however, a step above the typical continental BF with higher quality granola, breads and yogurt. The room was comfortable but small. It was spotless with no cracks, stains, etc. The bed is memory foam and wonderful. Road noise was surprising as this inn is situated more remotely. Trains also, but I like trains. The owner is cordial and friendly.
Scott pick us up in the middle of no where close to midnight out of gas 40 miles out of his way. and gave us gas . I felt like i came to an uncle's and aunt's home with nice accommodation and breakfast. Great place to stay if you visit crater lake national park. Crater lake national park is BEAUTIFUL!!!!
