Charming B & B

3.8 on September 30, 2014

Made extremely welcome by the receptionist upon arrival. Each receptionist we met during our 2 day stay was very pleasant and helpful. We stayed in the motel which was spacious and had all the facilities we needed. The grounds are lovely. We had a look in the historic rooms which were interesting but quite small. The dining room, food and staff were excellent.

Prospect House Stay from 9/20 - 9/23

3.4 on September 29, 2014

Choose PHH because we could not get into Crater Lake Lodge and this was the closest location. Very convenient at 34 miles from the park. Lovely property and grounds. Friendly and very helpful staff. Food was OK. Carrot cake was the best. Room was rather small. Would have preferred pictures and descriptions of the rooms on the website as I might have chosen something else. A little pricey given the size of the room even though breakfast was included. However I guess that was to be expected since PHH is the closest lodging to the park. I would have paid more for a larger room. Also they need to supply hair dryers - thankfully I brought mine.

Affordable and comfortable-close to Create Lake

Having a kitchenette in our room made it easy to make affordable meals. The fridge is small & I would've really liked some paper towels but all in all it was enough for great vacation. I did not eat in their restaurant because i brought my own food and it was a little expensive.

very pleasant and historic

Both my wife and I enjoyed our stay there and wouldn't hesitate to stay there again,but the food could definately use some work.It was way over salted even for me and some of the dishes do not this is really the only place to eat for miles around this is a problem

Cute Little Place

4.2 on September 26, 2014

Wonderful Service, Food, and Location. Rooms are small but clean and functional. We stayed in Boothby. Bed was a little too hard and squeaky, but was not the worst I've slept on.

excellent B&B

4.8 on September 23, 2014

While not an enthusiast about B&Bs, Prospect Historic Hotel was excellent. Granted the room is a bedroom, bout it was sufficient and the rest was tremendous - historic, elegant and the restaurant food is superb and the service was incredible. Highly recommend!

Wonderful stopover while visiting Crater Lake!

4.4 on September 23, 2014

This charming establishment was the perfect place for our last night visiting Crater Lake and a welcome respite after the tiny "cabins" offered within the park. We appreciated the historic information and the framed photos of prior proprietors and local influences which covered on our walls in the main house private bedrooms. The dining experience was quite nice and allowed my parents and husband and I to linger over a lovely meal before retiring to the veranda for cards and wine - both of which we had brought with us. I recommend it as a special treat for anyone looking to unwind and have a peaceful evening.

Loved the front porch!

3.2 on September 18, 2014

Nice place to stay and good breakfast, enjoyed relaxing front porch but totally uncomfortable bed for sleeping.

Wonderful staff and a fun historic atmosphere

4.4 on September 17, 2014

Our stay at the Prospect Historic Hotel exceeded my expectations. We were greeted warmly by the owner, who provided an extensive overview of the town, nearby attractions and information on Crater Lake. He had some great tips of things to stop and see on our way to and from the lake, and shared some history of Prospect. We stayed in the Hotel part of the B&B, and our room was bigger than expected and had a full bath en suite. We got a reservation for dinner at the dinnerhouse and enjoyed very large and delicious portions of food. Breakfast was also very hearty and tasty. The atmosphere is very fun, and it takes you back in time a bit. Its about 45 minutes from Crater Lake, but, unless you get a room at the Lodge, is one of the best accommodation options for visiting the lake. I would definitely recommend!

Great place to stay

4.6 on September 16, 2014

The staff were very welcoming, friendly, and helpful throughout our 2-night stay. The rooms were very clean and spacious and well worth the cost. Dinner was OK. Short hikes to nearby waterfalls (there are three of them), proximity to Crater Lake and the Rogue River gorge made it an excellent choice for us. The nearby store with gas pumps complete the picture. I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to everyone.
