A beautiful place to stay

The Prospect Hotel is a beautiful place to stay. We stayed in the Record room which has ample room for 4 people. We ate in the dining room for both dinner and breakfast. The breakfast cook was willing to make substitutions for my son who doesn't eat eggs. We were able to use the sitting room, the horseshoe pit, and walk to a gorgeous waterfall about 10 minutes away. Although we only spent one night we were treated well and we enjoyed our experience very much.

Love Prospect!

We were so happy with our stay at Prospect Historic Hotel; such a wonderful and peaceful location! We will be back!

Wonderful visit

This was a wonderful bed and breakfast! The people were very friendly and helpful about the area. Unfortunately, Crater Lake was socked in due to the weather, but I didn't mind one bit. That just makes an excuse to go back!

A Gem of a Mountain Retreat

It was gloomy and cool late Saturday afternoon in June as we approached Prospect, OR. The Historic Hotel was easy to find off of the Crater Lake Highway, and we were immediately awed by the serene clearing in the forest. The restoration of this old inn is incredible. The rooms were wonderfully finished and decorated and the staff delightful. We really enjoyed our dinners in the dining room, and our included full morning breakfast was tasty and served beautifully. Kudos to the Prospect Hotel staff. We are letting all our friends know how much we enjoyed our brief stay.

Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful!

What a beautiful place! I had stayed at the motel before but had always wanted to stay in the actual hotel. Finally family visiting from England gave me the excuse I needed. We could have driven to Crater Lake and back home to Grants Pass in one day, but stopping for the night with you in Prospect took it from incredibly beautiful to over-the-top awesome. The rooms are perfect down to the tiniest detail (believe me it's not easy to impress someone from England when it comes to period pieces). Service was great...every request was immediately catered to. And as for the area, wow! You MUST take the walks to the water falls. Perhaps it gets more crowded in the middle of the summer, but for us we barely saw anyone else. To be able to sit in silence and take in all that beauty is such an honor. Thank you for such an incredible stay.

Stay at Prospect Hotel

We originally came to stay only as somewhere to sleep when going to Crater Lake but soon found, thanks to Karen, that there was a lot to do in Prospect itself. The accomodation was amazing, clean and comfortable, and Fred and Karen made us feel very welcome. Marilyn, the cook/server, was a treasure - truly a lovely lady. We would definitely stay here again.

A wonder in the mountains

If anyone is on their way to Crater Lake or Diamond Lake this nice B & B is a beautiful stop. They have nice rooms that are themed and their food is very tasty. The service was good and attentive.

Thanks! Great stay! Wonderful service!
