Debbie & Steve Hilbert, attended U of Oregon---Steve played football for the Ducks and Debbie was a cheerleader. They married after college, and moved to Lake Tahoe where they started, built, and ran a successful interior design business in Incline Village, Nevada for over 30 years. Lonesome Duck has been a 20 year project that started in 1995 and turned a truly dilapidated ranch into a highly acclaimed guest lodging facility. Visitors from around the world sing high praise for the houses, the setting and the scenery......but best of all they become friends.
Steve & Debbie Hilbert purchased this guest house in 1995

We had 7 adults (2 couples, 3 individuals) and we were so comfy and cozy in this wonderful home. The owners were fabulous -- friendly and helpful. We 100% recommend you stay here.
Nice property, very clean. Do buy your groceries in Klamath Falls as the nearby groceries stores do not have much. Nice river with kayaks available. About an 1 hr drive to Crater Lake.
We brought our family from Denmark down to Southern Oregon mostly to visit Crater Lake. We had never stayed in that area so we used HomeAway to find a location that would sleep six of us. Lonesome Duck Ranch was the perfect location for a restful stay along the river. Some of us rested and enjoyed the hammock while others of us took long walks along the railroad and enjoyed fishing in the river. It was the perfect place to show our Danish family some rustic Americana. Steve and Debbie were very accomodating and made us feel right at home.
I know this lovely cabin is a fisherman's paradise in summer, but don't discount its charms in the winter months! The bird watching is outstanding, the river flows by at your very doorstep, the wood-burning stove creates a warm and cozy retreat from all your cares, and Crater Lake (which should not be missed in all the majesty of its snowy surroundings) is a relatively short drive away; borrow a pair of the complementary snowshoes and head up there for a hike. The bedrooms are incredibly charming and homey, with comfortable beds. The hosts and owners will greet you warmly and happily provide you with whatever you need to make your stay perfect. I have visited Lonesome Duck for four years in a row now. It is one of my winter priorities, and I love every second. Looking forward to many years to come!
A splendid place, though at a serenity amidst the woods yet driving distance from all grocery & daily supply places. Staff is super awesome who highly respects their guests and are easily approachable at odd hours too. Debbie & Steve Hilbert the owners also reside on the same 400+ acres lot and have a some fantastic private zoo like housed pets. Log Cabin is very well kept and well resourced, the old school style wood stove that may appear small at first glance yet it keeps the entire cabin pretty warm during the winters too. Marshal & Suzie are kindhearted and are your best guides for your family outings at the wilderness, let it be bird watching or just the adventures shooting, hunting & fishing sports, Marshal & Suzie are your go to guides for sure. Ample of parking, we took our 25 seater stretched white limousine with a trailer there, no problem of parking, approach road to the property is an adventurous dirt route and it really assists in building up the suspense for a first time visitor, and when at vacation there you can go boating at the stream, play horse shoe and even enjoy your favorite BBQ cooking at some real good countryside fire pits across the well maintained lawns.
