Crater Lake Lodge
a rustic option I wouldn't mind
Unique Quality: The Crater Lake Lodge is a classic National Park structure, full of lots of wood and rustic charm. Set right on the caldera of the lake, it offers grand views and has been doing just that since 1915. It was renovated in 1995 and offers modern convenience to go along with its rustic ambiance. The 71 room hotel has a dining room specializing in regional cuisine and, you guessed it, spectacular views.
Price range between $150-300 depending on room type and view. Open seasonally due to road closure on the Rim Drive. Reserve through Xanterra.
As with all National Park Lodges of this much historical value, you do not have to stay at them to enjoy their ambiance. They are considered part of the park and you are entitled to sit in their lobbies and write postcards, with the fire place roaring.
This was one one I would have much preferred staying in the lodge to camping!
Directions: Located on a small spur road off the Rim Drive so it is literally right on the rim of the lake.
Crater Lake Lodge
I did not stay here but i thought it looked really nice.
Unique Quality: Crater Lake Lodge is one of only a few in the park. It has 71 rooms and is perched right on the edge of the lake’s rim. It has a 1920’s style interior and of course the amazing views of the lake out your bedroom window. It is really a very up scale place to stay. Prices range from $129 on the ground floor to $248 in the loft per night with a $25 addition per additional person.
Directions: In the Rim Village
Historic Lodge Accomodations
There aren't a lot of options in terms of where to stay in the park itself when visiting Crater Lake. During the summer there are the motor lodge and campground at Mazama Village. There are also a couple of other campgrounds around the rim of the lake. Far and away the nicest accomodation and most dramatic is the historic Crater Lake Lodge. One of the National Park Service's historic lodges, the Crater Lake Lodge was built in 1917 but faced a lot of structural problems throughout its history. It was finally closed for five years, restored, and reopened in 1994. Today the lodge is an improved version of itself with all the modern conveniences. It's open from late-May through mid-October. It's closed the rest of the year due to the large amount of snow that Crater Lake gets each year.
We had a lakeview room which was small, had its own bathroom with the sink and mirror in the bedroom area. But the view was well worth the extra expense! We also enjoyed the Great Hall with its large fire place (always burning) and comfy Arts and Crafts-style furniture. It's a great place to relax with a beverage of choice (service starts at 2pm) and chat with friends or read a book. A few steps takes you out to the patio area with a stunning view of the lake.
Besides the modern conveniences it has the advantage of being located right on the crater rim and at the end of the Rim Village.
