Spring is Sprung! ;-) Come take advantage of great spring weather this year to have an impromptu celebration or finally schedule in that long-anticipated trip to Crater Lake. The Park has plenty of snow still, and here in the Klamath Basin we're delighting in wildflowers, baby birds and budding trees.
Coming up May 1-6: Crater Lake Dog Camp hosted here at Crystalwood Lodge. A couple of spots remain in this intimate and joyful experience with your 4 legged best friends. Contact me ASAP if you're interested in learning more or snagging one of those last spots!
Crystalwood is an ideal spot for baseing an in-depth exploration of Crater Lake's Backyard and beyond. We are located just outside Crater Lake National Park, only 18 miles from the south entrance (the entrance that is open year-round).

Crystalwood Lodge’s focus is on hosting groups, events, workshops, seminars, family reunions, weddings – any group needing a private space in a unique setting.
So far this year we've been again honored to host weddings, a multitude of family reunions, milestone birthday celebrations, bicyclists exploring the OC&E trail and Sun Mountain, a quilting retreat, dog sledding retreats, scrapbooking weekends, church get-togethers, two memorial get-togethers, hiking groups, Sierra Club outings....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 highs in the 80s. We feature cool nights and mornings year-round, so great for sleeping and enjoying unlimited fresh air.
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 each has a unique view of mountains, meadow, wildlife refuge or Crystal Spring. We have 3 water heaters supplying the kitchen and guest rooms, so plenty of hot water.
BTW, I do NOT live in Crystalwood Lodge, although I am on the property in case anything goes awry and needs attention. I have a separate house behind the Lodge, and my enclosed sled dog yard is approx. 1/4 mile north of the Lodge, on the opposite side of the knoll between the two. The Lodge is 100% yours when you rent the entire facility.
I am onsite to provide orientation tours and facilitate the check-in process when you arrive. Past that, I can assist with dealing with recycles and so forth -- or not -- as you prefer. If there are any problems or you need assistance with anything, of course I am available to assist however I can.
The lodge is on the original shallow water homestead well, and has the best water you will EVER taste. Enjoy!
I hope this helps to clarify a brief overview of all that Crystalwood Lodge has to offer, but please let me know if you have any further questions.
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 and the sled dogs with guests if desired!
I live in a separate manager's cottage behind the Lodge, thus the entire Lodge is reserved for guest use. Coming in at around 6000 square feet, there's ample room for your group to gather under one roof and still have plenty of elbow room.
In addition to the lodge I still train and run sled dogs, teach mushing and dog training, and guide people to learn all they can from and with the partnership with their dogs.
Liz Parrish purchased this lodge in 2001
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.
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.
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 really enjoyed our week at the lodge. There was plenty of room for the 21 of us to sleep comfortably, and plenty of room for the little kids to play. There are great day trips - Crater Lake, rafting, swimming at Lake of the Woods. The kids are already asking to go back next year.
Our quilting group has stayed at the wonderful Lodge several times now and each time is better than the last! The facilities and kitchen are great for big or smaller groups. It is a beautiful, big house with a great homey feel to it. The host ,Liz , is very helpful and knows all about the area. It is a wonderful place to walk, sit on the deck, enjoy the views and just relax. We go there to sew, visit, and eat wonderful meals but it would be a great family reunion spot with all the bedrooms and spacious living room area. I highly recommend the Crystalwood Lodge!
This was our third stay at Crystalwood Lodge and it will not be our last. We are a group of 16 women that come together twice a year at the lodge to quilt and enjoy each others company. The accommodations are prefect for each of us to have a comfy bed and private bath. There is a huge kitchen for us to prepare our meals and large dining room to seat all of us. It is not just the lodge but the views and wild life are incredible. There are so many things to do and see nearby. Liz's hospitality is the best, making all of us feel so welcome. We look forward to spending time with Liz and her dogs each visit. We are so happy to have found Liz and the lodge for our gathering.
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.
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!
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.
Canoeing, birding, sled dog kennel tours, festivals, photography, fly fishing, ropings and cutting horse competitions, rodeos, star gazing, Civil War re-enactments, Lava Beds National Monument, fish hatcheries, world-class birding
