Historic Elegance

Tucked in the trees at the edge of Lake Crescent, the charming Lake Crescent Lodge, built in 1915, features a fine dining restaurant, a glassed-in porch and an extremely cozy lobby, complete with a roaring fireplace and trophy elk on the walls. You can also rent boats and slide into the water from a pier right out front. Lodging options include small rooms inside the lodge, cabins and simple rooms in several standalone outbuildings. It’s open May through December.
