"So very quiet...immersed in nature...private and secluded...love the goats...amazing birding...wildflowers galore...never seen that many stars!"
Just a small sample of the experiences guests have at Crystalwood Lodge.
Some of the rooms are available for individual rental if a group has not booked the entire lodge. We host many events each year...weddings, family reunions, anniversary celebrations, life remembrances.
Open year-round with easy access via well-maintained roads, Crystalwood Lodge is steeped in local history. Originally the "mother homestead" in the area, the Brown family built the ranch out of the wilderness in the 1890s. Crystalwood passed out of the family's hands in the late 1970s, at which point the only modern amenity was a telephone. No running water, no electricity, no indoor plumbing.
Needless to say, the Crystalwood Lodge of today is thoroughly modernized, while maintaining that sturdy and welcoming homestead feel. The greatest compliment I get is when guests arrive and proclaim "This feels like home!"
Indeed it does. I work very hard to maintain that livability, coupled with modern amenities like a fully outfitted commercial kitchen, wifi throughout the lodge, safety lighting and more.
Relax or adventure, your choice. What would you like to do today? Hike the Sky Lakes Wilderness across the road? Marvel at stunning Crater Lake, just to our north? Fish for trophy redband trout just outside the Lodge front door? Paddle (bring your own kayak, canoe, paddleboard or rent one of our boats) and explore the generations-old wildlife habitat of Crystal Creek? Add several new species of birds to your life list? Curl up with a great book on the deck or in front of the fire? Imagine yourself as an "Iron Chef" in our fully outfitted commercial kitchen? Test all your senses with the nearby Crater Lake Zipline? Enjoy precious time together with friends and family?
As you can see, the choice is yours and the possibilities are endless. Come and experience it all, or at least give it your best shot. Live. Laugh. Love. Play. Enjoy Crystalwood Lodge and our very special little patch of paradise.
