Getaway location

4.4 on June 27, 2016

This is our second visit here. We stayed in the motel section which is basic but has the convenience of a kitchenette in the rooms. The location is convenient for visiting Crater Lake NP, as well as other wilderness areas. Good hiking, wonderful scenery. We took advantage of the wonderful dining room for made from scratch dinners. Food is very good and service is leisurely. We will return. Staff are all very helpful.


Peaceful & Charming B&B

This was the first time for us to stay at a Bed & Breakfast. I have to say we really enjoyed our stay there. The reason for the trip was to visit Crater Lake and the staff was very informative about the different things to see and do around the area. Always very friendly and polite. Made our stay very enjoyable.


Recent stay at motel for two nights, 4 people.

We have stayed at the Prospect Hotel twice now and have enjoyed the hospitality of the staff and the conveniece to visit Crater Lake. Both stays included an exceptional dinner in the dining room. A lovely and relaxing way to visit Crater Lake.


Great place, lots of history

Hiking is excellent. The area is nice and quiet. The location is ideal for visiting Crater Lake and the Upper Rogue River.


Loved it!

Beautiful location with tons of waterfalls and quick, easy hikes. Heads up though- I wasn't aware that the Roosevelt room I reserved didn't have a bathroom in the room. Short walk down the hall and I have to admit, it wasn't really an inconvenience. The owners were very friendly and made us feel part of the family. Meals were outstanding!


Good Prospects

My wife and I stayed at the inn over the Thanksgiving holiday. We stayed in the motel section, so I cannot speak to the quality of the rooms in the hotel. The motel rooms were small but clean and provided appropriate arrangements/utilities. The food at the dining house is excellent, and we recommend dining with them for Thanksgiving, as they provide a special all-you-can-eat buffet for the occasion. Honestly, it was the best Thanksgiving feast I've ever had, although it was a bit expensive, as was the breakfast we had there the following morning. The surrounding area is also very beautiful, nestled right beside Oregon's Rogue River/Klamath wildernesses. Several waterfalls are just a 10-15 minute walk from the inn, and they are definitely worth the time, including the 242 ft. Barr Falls. Our personally favorite, however, was the smaller Mills Creek Falls. Overall, the inn exceeded our expectations, and we found the management, staff, and other guests to be very friendly. We also had time to talk with several locals, all of whom were nice, accommodating, and helpful. The surrounding natural area is definitely worth the trip as well, only a 45 minute drive (more in winter though, as road conditions can get dicey) from Crater Lake and the lesser-known Diamond Lake. And other little gems are to be found too, like the nearby Prospect Cafe and Trophy Room. If you are a hiking or nature enthusiast, or if only looking for a quite, secluded weekend getaway off the "beaten path," we highly recommend.


stop on the way to crater lake!

My mother and I had a great overnight stay in the Teddy Roosevelt Room. The place is historic, and so the rooms are understandably small. However, all the rooms and the common spaces are well outfitted with some very cool antique furniture. Breakfast was delicious (lots more options than I am used to when staying in a B&B), and Marilyn did such a great job getting everyone fed and caffeinated, even without a waitress to help her. The drive to crater lake was beautiful, didn't seem to take long at all.


Historic Bed & Breakfast

4.4 on October 04, 2015

My husband and I were very pleasantly surprised to find such a charming bed and breakfast en route to Crater Lake. The rooms reminded one of staying in a hotel in the late 1800s but with amenities. The breakfast and dinner meals were delicious. All of the staff were very friendly. I would love to stay here again.
