Another day another long drive 200 miles. We headed to Crater Lake it’s a volcano that erupted 8000 years ago. It is now filled with water hence the name, The couple of hours we spent there were very enjoyable we were very high up the temp was only 60 degrees . The views were really spectacular. Leaving was less fun for me ...
... soap. I have no shame. For the longest time afterward, I just sat on the tailgate of my truck and enjoyed the park, the sunshine, the cool breeze, the happy people coming and going, some reading, some snacking. One of those moments that you just know you are in the right place!
My second night was spent camping outside of town, along the Cascade Lakes highway, in hopes of getting in a good hike the next morning. Unfortunately, ...

We set off on Monday at about 6am full of Coffee stolen from the lodge (take that Sandy!). The Road trip was an epic one crossing 2 Canadian provinces, 3 American States and spanning 1,216Km (which is a little shy of the length of Britain). The journey took us about 15 hours and some of the highlights included Mountain roads through BC as ...

Day 31: We wake up pretty late (6:45am) since we had to catch up on sleep from our "zero" day. Today we will put our "ultralight" gear (not really, but it feels like it to us) to the test, starting with 4,000 ft of elevation gain in one hill. Higher up we meet the trail crew working on clearing ...

Historical Traveler Reviews The Lodge at Suttle Lake Sisters
To small for price, charge extra for EVERYTHING
Beautiful setting, but the price is so expensive for what you get. They charge extra for everything. For the price you would think they would take care of there own housekeeping. They do not. You get charged 50.00 extra if you do not wash the dishes. We found the dishes put away greesey and gross, they had not been checked. There is noway you could have more then two people in a cabin, it is just to small. You cannot sit more then 3 people in the living room ( if you call it a living room) The table they have well lets say one person with a ceral bowl is to crowded. We were going to go for Christmas but after staying there, there is noway. I can rent a beautiful home for the price they are charging.
Every Detail Beautiful
The Lodge is beautiful, every detail. The room, furnishings, amenities, i.e. hand mirror in the bathroom, toiletries, coffee, cups, glasses and wine goblets. Decor, paint colors, wooden shades, quality everywhere one looks. The "Great Room" with "real" fireplace is a pleasant surprise in this day of gas fireplaces. The breakfast-delicious-wonderful fresh fruit and cinnamon rolls like homemade. Complimentary bottle of red wine a very nice welcoming touch. The Lake view, grounds, trails, and cabins are a piece of heaven. The staff, especially Giana, was friendly and informative. We checked in early and checked out late and enjoyed every minute. The Skip Armstrong wood carvings add a nice feel. The other artwork is perfect for the Lodge's warmth. We will be back.
After a weekend at Suttle Lake, we were not entirely sure we wanted to go home. The Lodge is gorgegous, we were invited to a cheerful tour of all of the different rooms.
Overpriced for what you get
The location is great and the new cabins are beautifully made, but nevertheless overpriced. Our cabin was supposed to accomodate up to six, but did barely suffice for the two of us. There was no place to put luggage, no place to hang clothes, no counter space in the kitchen area and only a tiny bistro style table for dining.
The staff consists of family members and locals who lack hospitality training. The restaurant is not necessarily open just because the road sign says so. It has a nice lakeside setting and was full at dinner on a week night. The food was average.
There was no one to check us in when we arrived in the afternoon and the doors were locked when tied to check out after nine in the morning.
Beautiful location, questionably run
We have children so we thought this would be a wonderful place, it has been newly renovated, the cabins are spectacular, and the lake is great! However, we ran into a few problems and weren't given the help needed nor the respect to fix these things (deposit misbilled, couldn't get into the restaurant, the staff couldn't answer any of our questions about the site or renting a boat, etc.). The place was a great location however it would've made all of the difference if the staff was more accomodating and interested in actually taking care of their guests. We had tried to call once we departed and had left several messages without the courtesy to call us back for over a week!
Both the lake and The Lodge at Suttle Lake is a rare scenic treasure for

Great place to Eat and relax
I stopped in for lunch on Nov.22,03 and was warmly greeted near a fire stove looking out the windows to the lake and snow coverd ground and trees. The wait staff and chef all came away from the duties to make sure that I was comfortable and answer all of my questions. I even purchased a nearby home. This is one place that I shall return soon. A must experience. The food was good and the restaurant sparkled.
Suttle lake is a beautiful area for a relaxing vacation. Suttle Lake Resort & Marina is located at the east end of lake. The two large cabins are roomy enough but much to hot for a July-August vacation. I would strongly recommend not staying at the resort during in hot spell. We were there the week of July 21, 2003. Being from Houston hot weather doesn't really bother us, outside. However, it is extremely difficult to sleep at night when inside temperatures ar so high. The cabins DO NOT have air conditioning. For $159 per night I would have expected AC. We requested fans the next morning and were assured we would receive them. My wife and sister-in-law had to request them a second time just before the marina office closed and we finally got them. The fans helped some but not nearly enough.I would think the resort could afford a reletively inexpensive window AC unit for use during the hot summer months. They do have heating units for use during the cold winter.One other item was the cook stove burners had only one speed, HIGH. This is OK for boiling water but some other foods would cook better at lower temperatures.All in all I would not recommend Suttle Lake Resort & Marina to anyone unless the some uprgrades were made.Thanks,W.

Great family time!
Last summer I stayed at Suttle Lake Resort with my 3 oldest grandchildren, all teenagers. At first, they thought it was a terrible idea - what would they do without a phone, TV, radio, or video games. By the time we left they asked if we could come back again this next summer. They said that they enjoyed 'playing' board games, cards, and talking, as well as fishing and just enjoying the scenery outdoors - much more than they missed the phone, TV, etc. Being teenagers, they didn't mind the futons to sleep on in the living room. My bed was quite comfortable, the bathroom was roomy and clean, and the litchen was function although small. I will return, perhaps this year.
