We stayed in the Bunkhouse while visiting nearby Crater Lake National Park. I could not have been more pleased with the entire experience. The hosts are very helpful and friendly people with an incredible attention to detail. The Bunkhouse is wonderful, it is extremely well appointed with amenities, and felt so peaceful and cozy. Every detail was considered to provide guests with comfort and a relaxing experience staying there. The property was a delight to explore and to just take in the fresh air and view the night sky. I highly recommend staying there, you will not be disappointed. I plan to stay with them again when I return to Oregon.
The Bunkhouse is absolutely phenomenal. We stayed here on our honeymoon for two nights while we explored Crater Lake and we were blown away. Air conditioned, homey, surprisingly spacious with a clean decor and great bathroom, it has everything you need. Barbara is a great host, and you can play horseshoes in the yard, or pet horses during your downtime. Would recommend and stay here again in a heartbeat.
This nicely remodeled and decorated rambler-style home is off the highway on a big scenic lot with private trails and ponds just steps away. Barbara and Dan are so friendly, caring, and welcoming. Available if you need something; invisible if you don't. Superb!
We vacationed at the Bunkhouse the second week in June, 2017.
First, this is not a one bedroom facility. It’s a converted log cabin and technically a one-room studio–although it’s quite large.
Second, there is NO cell phone service unless you have US Cellular. I verified this with other residents. We have AT&T (Android phone) and cell service was nonexistent throughout the week, even when we stood outside.
Third, while this property is not far from the park entrance, Crater Lake itself is 33 miles away. We used up a lot of gas driving back and forth.
PROS: The owners of the Bunkhouse seem like very nice people. The cabin is in a remote location not far from the Rogue River–in a beautiful setting. We enjoyed our walk to Turtle Pond, a short, pleasant stroll up a small hill. The bed is big and comfortable and there’s a good size dining table. There are little details that add a note of grace–a supply of attractive towels rolled up in a box in the bathroom, a good supply of tissue, dish soap, shampoo, utensils, sponges–that kind of thing. There’s sufficient lighting and an extra small heater. The owners have provided a wonderful and very complete book of things to do, maps, menus, etc. Mostly, it’s quiet, peaceful and pleasant.
CONS: While this property is near the park entrance, Crater Lake itself is 33 miles away.
We had some difficulty with the appliances. The kitchen and dining table occupied one corner of the room, and there are two armchairs. A wooden, partition separates the single bed from the larger one. The bathroom is a separate room with a tub and shower combo away from the wall. Taking a bath or shower was quite an undertaking–nowhere to grab onto and no safety strips on the bottom of the tub. The “shower” was a handheld shower head. There were sufficient blankets, but only a few tiny drawers in the wardrobe. No shelf space in the bathroom, except for one ledge under the mirror. No closets, but they did provide clothes hangers and there are some hooks. Be aware that there are no videos, no television, no cell service, no electronic diversions of any kind. If you’re a reader (we are) you should do well here.
We thought the bunkhouse was a fair value, but it might not be for everyone.
This is a very clean, nicely appointed place to stay. We enjoyed the property and it was conveniently located to crater lake, diamond lake, and all the nearby waterfalls.
