HISTORY

Point Comfort Lodge was built by a railroad and lumber tycoon from the mid west in 1912. At the turn of the century it was fashionable for wealthy families on the east coast to build large summer homes in the Adirondacks. Most of these vacation homes were log cabin or mission style architecture. When the Klamath Development Company was developing the lumber harvesting business in Klamath Falls they built Point Comfort to be their vacation home at the foot of the Cascade Mountains on the shore of upper Klamath Lake. Originally, four great lodges were built on Klamath Lake; they were Eagle Ridge, Odessa, Harriman Springs (built by E.H. Harriman) and Point Comfort. Point Comfort is the only one remaining today, making her the Grand Dame of the Lake

Point Comfort was designed by a renowned craftsman style architect from Berkley California. The restoration of the Lodge took 7 years to complete from the hardwood floors, wood paneled walls to the windows and doors containing 805 panes of glass. Her restoration adhering to historical guidelines has earned her a place on the National Registry of Historical Places.

LODGE STYLE

The Lodge is furnished with a blend of contemporary furniture and valuable antiques from the Craftsman period. For your enjoyment we have added two vintage pinball machines, no charge to play. The Lodge’s commercial kitchen is equipped to feed many, with its Wolf range, separate icemaker, dishwasher, two refrigerators, 8 foot stainless steel sink unit and prep island with sink. There are enough dishes for 30 people.

PATIOS, DECKS AND DOCKS

The front entrance has a lovely covered porch that is a restful place to sit. On the lakeside of the Lodge is a deck, which overlooks the lake. Below this deck is a large cement patio, perfect for outdoor entertaining. The dock will accommodate up to eight average sized boats and comes with a ladder if you happen to jump in. A peddle boat is available for guest use. Bring lifejackets. The three acres of land surrounding the Lodge are planted in rolling lawns, and natural plant species of the surrounding area. The gardens are beautiful in the spring when the lilac bushes and the flowering trees are in bloom. There are several large rock outcroppings to set off the gentle slope to the lake.

THE LAKE

Klamath Lake is home to 452 bird species and Eagles are often seen in the trees on the property. In the summer the trout come from all over the 94,000 acre lake into the bay in front of the lodge. These wild trout are a strain of steelhead landlocked in the lake 80 years ago. They average 2-3 pounds and fish over 8 pounds are not uncommon. This is a favorite spot for fly fishermen. There are miles of canoe and kayaking trails throughout the marsh. Enjoy a morning cup of coffee and watch the fish jumping in the lake! This facility is perfect for family reunions and gatherings of 8 or more.

NEARBY

Rocky Point Resort is ½ mile down the road, accessible by car, a short walk, or a boat ride from our dock to theirs. They have a small store, restaurant with full bar, and boat rentals. Lake of the Woods Resort is 8 miles north on Hwy 140, a short 10 minute drive. Lake of the Woods features a restaurant, boat rental, store and excellent swimming beaches. The Running Y Resort is 15 minutes south on Hwy 140 which features bar and restaurant, convenience store, and a wonderful 18 hole Golf course designed by Arnold Palmer, rated as one of the top 100 in the U.S. Crater Lake is a beautiful drive, just 45 minutes north. Lava Beds National Monument a hour to the south. These are just a few of the many things to do in the Klamath Falls area.

Point Comfort Lodge: Places to go

Point Comfort Lodge is surrounded by the Upper Klamath Wildlife Refuge

(15,000 acres), Fremont/Winema National Forest (2.3 million acres) and Rogue National Forests (630,000 acres)

Looking out the south windows you can see the eight peaks of the Mountain Lakes Wilderness. This beautiful 23,071 acre reserve is one of the original wilderness areas designated in the U.S. The caldera was created when a 12,000 foot volcano collapsed, much in the same way as the volcano that created Crater Lake. It left a smaller caldera with numerous lakes inside. It can be accessed by the Clover Creek Trailhead, Varney Creek Trailhead, and the Mountain Lakes Trailhead, less than 10 miles away.

To the west is another wilderness area, The Sky Lakes Wilderness. (113,590 acres), this wilderness is also about 10 miles from Point Comfort Lodge. It can be accessed by the Fourmile Lake Trailhead, Cold Springs Trailhead, Cherry Creek Trailhead, Nanny Creek Trailhead, and the Seven Mile Marsh Trailhead. All just a short drive away.

Looming over the Cascade Range is Mt. McLoughlin, a 9495 foot shield cone volcano that can be seen all over southern Oregon, This vigorous hike can be accessed by the trailhead near Fourmile Lake. This is about 10 miles from the lodge.

The Pacific Crest Trail can be accessed from either the Summit Snow Park on highway 140, about 12 miles away, or on Dead Indian Road at the Walt Harring Snow Park, about 15 miles away.

Malone Springs is a beautiful access point to the northern part of Crystal Creek, it is off of Westside Road. .

Fort Klamath has a museum of its days as a frontier fort during the Indian wars.

Kimball Park, near Fort Klamath, holds the head waters of the Wood River. The springs gush out of the cliff to a beautiful blue green pond.

Near Fort Klamath is the fish hatchery, here are some of the largest German Brown, and Rainbow Trout you will likely see anywhere.

Near Chiloquin, 0n highway 97, is the Collier Logging museum, with many examples of old logging equipment.

Crater Lake National Park is about 44 miles from the lodge. The deepest lake in North America and probably the bluest lake you will ever see.

Just west of Crater Lake on Highway 62 is the Rogue River Gorge where the river crashes through a lava flow, and there is a natural lava bridge where the natives could walk across the river. The whole river goes through a lava tube and gushes out down stream.

Just south of Klamath Falls, is the Lava Beds National Monument. Here are examples of many types of volcanic activity, including lava tubes, calderas, cinder cones, and many caves.

There are many miles of forest service roads for mountain biking nearby.

Westside Road is a popular road biking route, and is not heavily traveled by auto traffic.

Family reunion

  • 5 of 5

We went with our relatives and celebrated our anniversary there.

The house is awesome, it is right on the lake, I enjoyed drinking my morning tea watching the lake, couple fishermen fishing.. There seemed to be a lot of fish jumping in the water.

The paddle boats were fun.

The house was well equipped and had something to entertain for all ages,

We had a few kids and a few old people in the group and everybody enjoyed the house.

Wonderful vacation, we will love to go there again.

Great Place for large Group

  • 3 of 5

Love the views, loved that our large group could be together. This is our second stay here.

This beautiful place needs general up keep.. Cleaning window seals( good vacuuming), all closets need to be cleaned out , extra bedding for rollways, extra towels and wash clothes in linen closet, general dusting, clean up of mouse or rat dropping in the lodge and outside ( deck area, hoses ). Bed in Room 1 needs to be fixed ( when you lay in it bows to a V shape.. maybe some extra support under the frame. ensure that you renters have the items needed to meet your requests ( trash bags). Our group rented the cabins on property too.. They to need all windows and seals vacuumed and general cleaning ( spiders and webs everywhere). This beautiful lodge deserves the best care as the owners have done a beautiful job restoring it.

Owner's Response: Well this is a very different review. First time in 12 years I have heard of this. This has been a bad year for rodents and it is a natural area so It is possible you could encounter a mouse dropping. We will take it to heart. I will notify the cleaners about these concerns. Please understand that this is not a 5 star resort and we do not charge 5 star rates. If you want to experience a historical property that is a truly a unique experience please come. Sincerely, Bill a Brady

Beautiful spot for a group

  • 5 of 5

We have enjoyed this place for three years - an extended family of 11, each having our own private space, and the ability to all come together in the common rooms. Sitting on the shore of Klamath Lake, it offers delightful water activities - most especially kayaking around beautiful Pelican Bay. Restoration of this historic landmark has been done with a remarkable sensibility to both history and comfort. Highly recommended....

MINDBLOWING - So oregon's best kept secret for reunions

  • 5 of 5

I am selfishly not wanting to write this glowing review as I want to keep it for our family's secret special place for years to come. Alas, for you, the possible renter I will write it!

I was tasked to find a location suitable for our winter sport themed family reunion (including 7 grown adults, a family of cooks, and one that loves to play games and laugh....) and boy did I nail it!

This is a glorious East Coast style classic property that has been immaculately maintained on the the most gorgeous piece of properly with views galore overlooking the often overlooked Klamath Lake and surrounding mountain basin.

The Lodge allowed everyone to have their own personal spaces and space when when we were together in the kitchen and living room and dining room.

John & I live in So Oregon and have never really known anything about the community of Rocky Point ( there is a fab restaurant + bar a 1 min drive from the lodge in case you want to take a night off !) and the rest of the gang came in from out of state. Its only an hour away from the the Medford airport and 45 mins from crater lake, 15 mins from lake of the Woods.

The owner, Bill , and Dave, the local caretaker (and the one who refurbished the home a few years back) are a great duo taking care of the rezzie and preparing the home for our arrival. Everything was so smooth.

We will absolutely return for a family reunion again, when we hit another special milestone.

Beautiful place!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this charming lodge full of comfy, authentically historic rooms in a gorgeous, quiet location. We rented canoes nearby and spent a magical afternoon on the water. Another day we went up to Crater Lake and hiked the rim trail in the snow - beautiful. We had a large birthday gathering and the place was perfect - good beds, plenty of bathrooms, well equipped kitchen. When there was an issue with something in the house, the owner worked with us by email to resolve it. Highly recommended - I would definitely rent again!
