The Aspen Inn
Travel Blogs from Fort Klamath
We got up early and left for Crater Lake National Park at about 7, right when the office opened so Sandy could get some coffee. From the hotel, it was only ten minutes to the park and maybe 30 minutes or so to the rim. We needed to be at the parking lot no later than 9 to be down to the docks by 930. But we had quite a bit of time, so we made a few …
We woke up quite early Saturday morning to begin our weeklong trip to Oregon to celebrate our two-year anniversary. We flew from RDU to Chicago O’Hare to PDX. Although the flights were mostly on time, surprising for United, it was a little slow getting the rental car. By about 130 in the afternoon Pacific Time, we finally were off. After a …
Lava Beds is a nice lava formed landscape with many small caves. I could not go through much of them cause I am blind, but however, still a great place to enjoy.
... they are off to the slaughter yards in a month. (3ft/1 metre of snow through here in winter)
After we got settled, had a rest, we thought we would go and checkout Crater Lake. We stopped at few lookouts on the way up overlooking Annie’s creek/river. When we got to Crater Lake we were not disappointed, spectacular. You’ve never seen water so blue.

... What a cool sight! This large volcano erupted and then collapsed, leaving a huge crater. The lake is beautiful. The Rim Road is a little off putting, how narrow and close to the cliffs it was, but we got a great view of the lake (and some wonderful pictures). We kept going, pushing through, past Klamath Falls and out of Oregon. We were looking to stop around Weed, but kept long anyhow. All the while, we were treated to beautiful scenery ...
How has this inn rated in the past?
Aspen Inn is a nice little motel close to Crater Lake. We had wanted to stay in the park, but everything was booked so we looked a little further out and found this place. It's about 7 miles to the park entrance and takes about 45 minutes to get to the rim. We had no trouble getting there in time for our boat tour. We stayed in the "honeymoon cabin", a little A-frame cabin. There are few amenities, coffee in the morning. The WiFi didn't work and there was only one station on the TV. But we're at Crater Lake and there are far better things to do than watch TV or surf the internet. The front desk staff was friendly and the room was clean and comfortable. Our only complaint was that the window on the second floor of the cabin (that we weren't allowed to go up to) was open and it got rather cold in the room overnight. We didn't figure this out until we were checking out. Other than that, we had a very nice stay and would consider staying here again, especially if we couldn't get lodging within the park.
