Spring Get Away Idea
The place...Crescent Lake Lodge, Oregon. Located in the beautiful Deschutes National Forest on the eastern slope of Oregon's Cascade mountains, Crescent Lake Lodge is everything you hope for in terms of a vacation away from civilization, with enough amenities to let you know that you're not really camping. These rustic cabins are perfect for a simple retreat from the city but for a little more comfort, you can always sit on the expansive patio perched by the lake where breakfast, lunch, and dinner is served at the Pines Bar & Grill. Try the Mountain Scramble or a Lodge Burger to fuel your weekend away. Rent a fishing boat for a day of conversation, suntans, and a fresh catch (think: Kokanee, rainbow trout, and mountain whitefish) or rent a Sea-Doo for slicing through the clear waters of Crescent Lake. Plus, hiking trails twist throughout the Deschutes National Forest, so you'll never be lacking adventure. Cabins are $125 for double occupancy...and that's the high season price. Not too shabby.
