Lodging by the Lake 

Whether looking for ghosts or Gatsby, plenty of lakeside options

From Henry David Thoreau to Joss Whedon, a cabin in the woods is at turn tranquil and creepy. All around the Cascade Lakes—and slightly beyond—there are numerous retreats—most decidedly more Thoreau than Whedon—that offer everything from rustic to romantic getaways.

Cultus Lake Resort

A slew of small cozy cabins, many with indoor and outdoor fireplaces. The simple charm of these cabins offers time to explore the breathtaking area without modern distractions. Various sized cabins are rented for $85-$155/night; May through September.

Craine Prairie Resort

Opposite of Cultus Lake Resort, on the Cascade Lakes National Scenic Byway lays Craine Prairie Resort, which along with many RV camping sites, also offers three rustic lakeside cabins. After a day of fishing or swimming at the lake, the cabins present a cozy alternative for those not interested in packing along a tent. The convenient gas stoves and sleeping lofts tucked into the cabins are gathering places for ghost and fishing storytellers alike. Cabins are rented for $50-$75 a night.

Suttle Lake

Those looking for a more luxurious cabin stay, head to Suttle Lake Lodge past Sisters. In the shadow of Mount Washington, these lavish cabins and lodge suites are fully furnished and some even have the option for satellite television. Maybe it's not camping in the traditional sense, but the serene lake is still a relaxing haven. For those wanting to experience Suttle Lake in a more rustic way, yurt rentals are available from the Forest Service on the other side of the lake. Year round; varying prices.
