Historic 1920s era lodge at the south end of Wallowa Lake in Northeastern Oregon. Stay in the main lodge building during late spring through early fall, or stay in one of eight year around cabins near the shore of Wallowa Lake. Restaurant on site serving breakfast and dinner from late spring through early fall. The classic guestrooms feature an historic feel with a mix of modern amenities. Call us for more information or visit our website.
What a fun step back in time at this Lodge which still has the original feel of a cabin retreat. The room decor creates an ambience of pre-technology crazed age. We really enjoyed sitting in the Lobby area with the many couches, fireplace and supplied games. Good central location.
This place was bare bones and was far from the Lake. Rooms were hot, small and customer service weak. I would stay in Joseph . Very quiet on the plus side. No liquor . The shower did not work great. Food was good
We visited Wallowa Lake from Portland. The tram to the top of the mountain has grand views. Take time to walk around the various trails to take in the sights. The trails are relatively easy to walk and you can take your time. There is a place to get food and drink before you return for the trip down.
Early morning kayaking provides the lake to yourself and a few paddle boarders.
Evenings can be spent playing miniature golf and eat ice cream.
We stopped here for meals twice on a long weekend visit. Dinner was great; fast tasty, great value considering we brought our own wine. The piano playing in the dining room was a nice bonus. But then we went back for breakfast, and what a contrast. Terrible biscuits and gravy,so so omelette, and overworked staff. Oh,and the restroom was out of tp in one stall and the other was about to flood over. 3 rating is an average of a five and a one.
we were in room 205 and it was the smallest motel room we have ever stayed in. No view of the lake but was on lake side. No coffee, tv or phone. If you want breakfast you need to buy your own. It is a beautiful lodge but I felt very over priced for the small room with only a shower . People walking around all night so quite noises as well.

Good morning Vallerie,
Thanks for contacting us. We know folks would love to bring Fido and Rover, but we're sticking with recent tradition to maintain the grounds for wildlife. The head of Wallowa Lake is a unique (and sensitive) habitat for all kinds of animals and with so much activity everywhere else at the head of the lake this is important resting, nesting and feeding grounds for everything from bald eagles to mule deer, ouzels to kokanee. Plus, it is sacred ground for Nez Perce. We're working on a conservation easement with the tribe and prioritizing habitat health is a key piece of that.. Maybe someday native sockeye will return to the lake! We hope you understand.
We can recommend a great local, Lodge-approved kennel allowing Fido & Rover a canine vacation with other fun dogs, away from their owners for a short time.
Please do not hestiate to contact me personally if there is anything we can do for you here at the Lodge.

This a unique property, the menu is limited but it may be because they don't have a large area to draw from. They do a good job preparing the food and the wait staff is quite accommodating and friendly. I love the atmosphere and decor. They have tried to preserve the history of the property. I would definitely recommend this restaurant for breakfast and dinner at least once if you are in the area.
