PET-FRIENDLY GETAWAY JUST OUTSIDE CRATER LAKE NATIONAL PARK

Crater Lake Lodge Rental Photos and Description

Lodge, 7 Bedrooms + Sleeping Porch, 7.5 Baths, (Sleeps 16-20+)

Crystalwood is an ideal spot for basing an in-depth exploration of the “best 30 miles in Oregon” and beyond. We are located just outside Crater Lake National Park, only 18 miles from the south entrance (open year-round).

BOOKING SEASON SPECIAL now available for all new 2014 stays confirmed before the end of 2013...get an extra night for free! Book now and SAVE BIG!

Crystalwood Lodge’s focus is on hosting groups, events, workshops, seminars, family reunions, weddings – any group needing a private space in a unique setting. In 2013 we were again honored to host 2 weddings, a multitude of family reunions, milestone birthday celebrations, bikers participating in the Crater Lake Century Bike Ride, a quilting retreat, dog sledding retreats, scrapbooking weekends, church get-togethers....just to name a few!

Well-behaved pets are welcome throughout the Lodge and grounds (except for the kitchen and dining room, per health dept. regulations).

We live in the 'tropics of winter sports' so temperate and balmy winters, and warm but not scorching summers. Winter highs are in the 30s, summer in the 80s.

Fully Outfitted Commercial Kitchen: Crystalwood Lodge makes our fully outfitted commercial kitchen available to guests, and that has been a huge hit with every group stay. This allows you to come and go freely as you can eat whenever you prefer using the kitchen to prepare your own meals.

The commercial kitchen includes a 6-burner propane stove, 2 large ovens, an outdoor propane grill, 3 microwaves, a guest freezer (with chilled beer mugs), a HUGE walk-in cooler for refrigerated food storage, a commercial coffee/tea station, and a dry food storage area. The well-stocked dish pantry includes serviceware for approx. 30, linens and placemats for the dining room, cutting boards, crock pot, toaster, mixer, and a wide variety of stock pots, baking dishes, skillets, mixing bowls. A number of dry spices are available for guest use.

Food storage areas, dish pantry, food prep tools – everything is here to satisfy your inner gourmet cook – all you bring is the food! There are several local food options if you don’t feel like cooking.

Additional Lodge Amenities: Direct water access for canoeing, kayaking, fishing and wildlife viewing is available just outside the front door of the Lodge. We have 2 rowboats and 2 canoes available for guest rental, which include oars, paddles and life jackets.

We also have 4 open air horse pens for those who would like to bring their horses and enjoy the many miles of trail riding in our immediate area.

Dog crates are available for guest rooms, and a chest full of dog sheets is available to cover the bed comforters or furniture for those guests who like to have their dogs close (i.e. can't keep them off the bed, like some of mine)!

Doggie doo bags are available and trash cans are strategically placed in the parking area and next to the lawn/garden areas for easy pick-up and clean up of your pets.

We have 3 ponds on the property for canine swimming, and approx. 3-4 miles of trails on the property for dog walking, birding, wildflower and wildlife viewing and just getting away from it all.

Even More Lodge Amenities & Info: Free Wi-Fi is available throughout the Lodge guest rooms and guest common areas, including the wrap-around deck and porches.

Inside recreation options include board games, jigsaw puzzles, cards, books, magazines, video library, spotting scope and binoculars.

We have a cozy glass-fronted wood stove in the ground floor Great Room, ready for guest use while you area enjoying the large common area.

A dryer is available for guest use, and I am happy to do laundry on behalf of my guests for a nominal charge.

Guest rooms all include fans and baseboard heaters, and in the summertime most guest rooms have window air conditioners installed. We have 3 water heaters supplying the kitchen and guest rooms, so plenty of hot water.

The lodge is on the original shallow water well, and has the best water you will EVER taste. Enjoy!

About The Owner

I am a dog lover, thus my property is pet welcoming. My dogs and I have enjoyed agility, fly ball, obedience, skijoring, and dog sledding. I devoted 10 years to my dream of training my own sled dog team and completed the Iditarod Sled Dog Race in 2008 to celebrate my 50th birthday. I am glad to share stories with guests!

The Owner purchased this lodge in 2001

Why The Owner chose Crater Lake

This area has incredible diverse year-round recreation opportunities, and Crystalwood Lodge is in the heart of it all. We are located 18 miles from the south entrance to Crater Lake National Park (the entrance which is open year-round), and adjacent to both the Fremont-Winema National Forest and the Upper Klamath National Wildlife Refuge. Easy year-round access and eye-candy scenery in every direction complete the appeal.

What makes this lodge unique

We have a quiet, peaceful, private setting which is off the beaten path, and yet close to all sorts of outdoor recreation and sightseeing such as Crater Lake National Park. On this property we have world-class birding, fishing and canoeing and kayaking, also hiking, wildlife, and endless vistas.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Liz, Just a note of thanks & appreciation for helping to make our "sister week" such a delightful time! We all had a memorable stay -- your lodge is a gem in the woods. Thank you for sharing it with us. And, thank you for your friendliness and friendship. You gave us a warm welcome & warm send-off, and much warmth in-between! Thanks again! Woof! Woof!

Our family reunion!

  • 5 of 5
We rented Liz's place last summer. We were telling some friends what a great place it is and realized we never left a review, so here we are...better late than never. Family gathered from coasts east and west and as far away as Italy, 27 of us in all, all beds filled and young people in tents and on the floor of the great room on chilly nights and Liz was a wonderful and gracious host through it all. We were well pleased. This is a gorgeous setting. My wife and I spent one whole day just canoeing through the enchanting wetlands in one of the lodge's canoes. We saw many water fowl and other birds and a pair of mating sandhill cranes in their ritual dance. Most of our days were spent with various groups forays into Crater Lake National Park and this proved to be excellent lodging for that. We were concerned at first that the drive to the park might be a long one but that turned out to not be the case at all. The drive passed quickly through the stunningly beautiful Klamath Basin. This is our 3rd big reunion rental and its a winner. We did lots of cooking and the kitchen and dining area was great for a large group.

Discovery of Oregon

Short visit but very enjoyable. Crater lake was snowed in but were still able to drive to the lodge: very cold and snowing at times. Enjoyed the Rogue river and the lakes around Crater lake. We were the only ones at the lodge for 2 days and enjoyed the peace and quiet!

Owner's Response: I was so grateful to be able to host this lovely couple. I am working a seasonal job as an employee trainer at Crater Lake, so it was extra delightful to be able to get some direct guest feedback on their experiences there. These folks were most generous in sharing their observations with me. We had a delightful time also talking about the area, Crystalwood Lodge, my sled dog team, my Iditarod experiences and so forth.

These folks are from Texas, and when they departed to go home, they took the cool weather with them...immediately after they left, we went into a hot (for us) spell of temps in the mid-upper 80s. Ah, life in the mountains in springtime -- never a dull moment!

Restful and Wonderful Vacation

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful visit to the Crater Lake area made even more enjoyable by Liz's hospitality. We loved meeting and petting the sled dogs, appreciated Liz's care of our feisty corgi while we enjoyed Crater Lake, and reveled in the canoeing and just hanging out at the lodge. The room (McGrath) was plenty big enough for 2 adults, 2 teenagers and a dog. The room and the lodge were clean, the beds comfy and the views spectacular. We came in much later than we had planned our first night and we were graciously met by Liz. She was so hospitable and had a lot of good tips on where to go and what to see. We all had fun cooking in the kitchen, watching the sunrise with a steaming cup of coffee and enjoying the sunset with a glass of wine in the screened porch. 4 days flew by.

Wonderful Family Vacation Destination

  • 5 of 5
We had a good feeling about Liz and the place right from the moment I sent my inquiry to the VRBO listing. And we were pleased to have our expectations exceeded. It is just the place for unwinding from a hectic city life and letting your lungs rejuvenate with fresh air and eyes soak in all the beauty whichever direction you see.

We were also inspired by Liz's passion for her dogs and the wonderful stories about her Iditarod race and more. She is very prompt with any help you may need. And what made our trip even more memorable was that we forgot some of our daughter's bags back in the lodge, and Liz mailed them over (even though it is such an arduous task to send someone's luggage over by mail especially when you are living in a place like Winema National Forest) within two days; it arrived within a couple of days too.

We higly recommend this place for vacation and we are positively going back.

Owner's Response: Thanks Walt! It was wonderful and fun to host your family and help you with the graduation celebration. I know you folks enjoyed Crater Lake too, magificent with the extra-late snow still on the ground up there.

Even though the environment here in the mountains changes year-round with something new to offer and enjoy, I think June is my favorite summer month with all the incredible birding, canoeing, hiking and fishing and before the heat later on in the summer. Can you tell I'm an Iditarod musher because I think mid-80s is hot? ;-)

I'm glad your family had a great time, and best wishes to you all from the sled dogs and I for 2012 and beyond!

Cheers -- Liz

Wonderful Stay!

  • 5 of 5
This was a great vacation experience. We brought our small dog, and they had a crate for him to stay in in our room, and he was allowed all over the property and in the house except the kitchen and dining room. Liz was wonderful, and since we were the only guests for the whole weekend (and we had marked "special occasion" as our reason for visiting), she upgraded our room for free! The grounds are beautiful, the house is beautiful, couldn't ask for a better place. And watch for Brick, he's the unofficial greeter and a great dog!
