Best place to stay in the area

5 on July 04, 2015

Very friendly and helpful. We would have missed very special attractions without their advice. We didn't know we were so close to world class nature sites right in prospect until we got there. The food was the best.

Great Discovery

Stayed there three times. Excellent dinner. Beautiful facilities and grounds. Friendly people. Plan to go back soon.

2015 Memorial weekend stay at WJB room

3.8 on May 27, 2015

I stayed for a night at the WJB room. It was the smallest of the rooms. I would get the Pearson room next time. I wish there was some information in the room description that would have helped me choose the biggest of the available ones. The on site breakfast was one of the best I've had. Would definitely consider staying again.

Beautiful Historic Inn and town

Beautiful Inn in a lush green town and plenty of waterfalls in walking distance. Very pleasant experience.

A lovely spot

Staff was friendly and helpful; motel unit was well-equipped and comfortable, and location is close to hikes and walks and the scenic splendor of Crater Lake. We stayed two nights, and enjoyed seeing the historic hotel, sitting on its wide porch, and exploring the area.

Prospect, the idea of a town.

This is such a great gem in Oregon that I almost don't want to advertise it and keep it to myself but that would be wrong. The hotel is a wonderful restored old hotel that has been greeting travelers since 1888. It was clean and charming and we felt relaxed. The staff was friendly and the service was great. The large property also offers motel rooms in back and plenty of room for vehicles and something I thought was awesome, a stable and place for horses! Literally a block away is a hiking trail to Prospect state park with some wonderful waterfalls. The town of Prospect is an interesting place but really has nothing much to do. The local bar/watering hole is shut down and out of business so that leaves one pizza place open till Eight after that there is no nightlife to speak of. If you like quiet small towns, then Prospect is the place. We enjoyed our stay and will definitely be back!

Crater Lake Getaway

What a beautiful place to stay! The town of Prospect is very quaint, I was able to meet a lot of the locals during my stay that shared with me the great things I should go out and do while visiting. Fred and Karen were super helpful in providing the area attractions and must see's. There are several waterfall hikes right next to the hotel. And the local market / gas station is pretty much next door. The town shuts down at 8pm, but honestly after hiking and sight seeing all day, I was ready to relax at that time anyways. I hung out in the parlor with a glass of wine and played card games, watched a movie and engaged in some much needed R&R. One of the best parts was the service received at breakfast. Carl made my breakfast everyday from scratch. I got to chose my breakfast time and it was ready within minutes of me coming downstairs. Carl knew I was doing quite a bit of hiking so he sent me out the door with some fresh baked cookies each day. I really felt like I was staying with family the entire time. I have already recommended the place and will definitely be coming back in the summer when more hiking opens up. Don't forget to stop by and see the owner at the Prospect Pizza Parlor. It's open from 3-8pm. He knows where the good trails to hike are in the area along the river. HINT: If you need WiFi access during your stay, you will have a good signal in the Parlor at the B&B. The Pizza Parlor will also provide you with access if requested.

friendly clean and gracious B&B

Because we had a long drive ahead of us Karl in the kitchen made us an early breakfast and was very cheerful about it. I would love to have had the evening meal there but it was booked for a party. Instead we went down the road to a great roadside cafe called Beckies. It is an amazing area to visit and the staff took their time to give us advice on how to best spend our time. thank you all.

What a wonderful find

4.0 on March 03, 2015

We loved this place, since it was "off season" we had the whole place to ourselves. The owner checked us in and told us about all these amazing hikes, which truly were amazing! The cook was brought in to fix us breakfast, it was a Delicious breakfast and he came out and talked with us a bit during breakfast. It was such a memorable stay.

It was a nice experience but the restaurant wasnt open so we had to drive 15 miles out of town to eat. The bed was horrible and stiff. Very clean. Nice room amentities like the fridge and microwave were a bonus. The tv only gets shopping channels, fyi.
