Property description

Crystalwood is an ideal spot for basing 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 (open year-round).

*** *** *** *** *** *** *** *** *** ***

HEADS UP: Most of the summer is already booked, so if you want the best vacation rental experience near Crater Lake -- get the troops lined up and grab one of the last spots.

Or take a look at our prime shoulder season openings: April-May for immersion in the incredible Pacific Flyway spring bird migration; or September-October to revel in warm days, cool nights, luscious fall colors and wide-open wilderness hiking.

More details at our main website: www.CrystalwoodLodge.com. Book today!

Crystalwood Lodge’s focus is on hosting groups, events, workshops, seminars, family reunions, weddings – any group needing a private space in a unique setting. In 2014 we were again honored to host weddings, a multitude of family reunions, milestone birthday celebrations, bikers participating in the Crater Lake Century Bike Ride, a quilting retreat, dog sledding retreats, scrapbooking weekends, church get-togethers....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.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

About the owner: 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', 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.

Why the Owner Chose Crater Lake:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this Lodge:
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.
