Crater Lake guest house description

This hand-hewn log house offers a unique vacation experience, add a cozy fire in the wood burning stove, a little snowfall and you have the perfect winter retreat. The house is the ideal setting for total relaxation. Get ready to unwind.
At Lonesome Duck we have 200 acres and 2.5 miles of private riverfront where river, pond, meadow and mountain are yours to share with duck, geese, deer, mink, beaver, hawk and eagle. Crater Lake National Park is 30 minutes away. Lava Beds National Monument and seven wildlife refuges are all nearby. The Klamath Basin was voted #1 best birding in the West by Sunset Magazine. And our manager is a Certified Wildlife Biologist who can lead birding and nature tours throughout the entire year.

We have endless activities for all seasons. Fly fish on the famous Williamson River for trophy trout, hike, bike, canoe, kayak, visit Crater Lake National Park and the seven wildlife refuges in the area

Winter brings the opportunity to snowshoe (complimentary snowshoes for guests) and cross country ski at Crater Lake and surrounding areas. Snowmobile on hundreds of miles of local trails. Drive the Volcanic Scenic Byway... it's a great way to spend a day touring this magnificent part of the country. Birding is a year round activity.
Seasonal Highlights:

Fall: August & September are peak months for viewing Pelicans, Egrets, Herons, and Grebes. An estimated 2 million ducks & geese migrate through the Basin each Oct & Nov.
Winter: From Nov through Feb. over 500 Bald Eagles-the largest concentration in the lower 48 states- winter in the Klamath Basin.
Spring: March to May brings shorebirds and waterfowl migrating north to Alaska & Canada. Thousands return to nest in the Klamath marshes.
Summer: Brood-rearing by 200,000 ducks, geese, herons, egrets, and grebes can be seen from May to Aug.
