The Suttle Lodge & Boathouse is a rustic resort on the shore of Suttle Lake in the Deschutes National Forest near Sisters, Oregon.
The original 15.5-acre property is comprised of a large timber lodge with guest rooms, fully equipped lakeside cabins, rustic camping cabins, and a boathouse restaurant with a dock and provision shop. Versions of this resort have been in continuous operation since the 1930’s. The style is a subversive embrace of the Pacific Northwest campground – a relaxed Cascade forest lodge as imagined by a gently debauched scout troop. The focus is on public social spaces: convivial gathering places grounded in the bounty of Oregon food and drink and geared towards the activities and beauty of a forest lake. A year-round retreat with a camp-like feel, there will be canoe, kayak and SUP rentals, hiking, fishing, swimming, a beer garden and lawn games, arts-and-crafts workshops, music events, a huge roaring fireplace to read or sip bourbon by; snowshoe and Nordic ski trails, nearby hot springs, and a downhill ski slope just ten minutes away.
