When central Oregon's wheat farmers desired a quiet mountain vacation at the turn of the 20th century, they traveled to the cabins of Lake Creek Lodge.
While a lot has changed since those first visitors cast a line or swam in this hideaway's surrounding waters, the sentiment remains the same. Embark on a two-night Escape to a two- or three-bedroom cabin in Camp Sherman, Sundays through Thursdays ($199) or Fridays and Saturdays ($270), and revel in a getaway that soothes stress with simplicity.
Turn off technology and cue into the sounds of rustling leaves, curious birds, and a meandering creek outside your door. Cook up a feast in your fully furnished kitchen and eat at the table on your screened porch. After stories are told and plates are cleared, play a friendly game of pool or ping-pong at the lodge.
Each morning, enjoy breakfast pastries and espresso delivered to your rustic living room. Once you're finished, reel 'em in some rainbow trout in the catch-and-release pond, and then set out for a hike in the Deschutes National Forest. Since there are more than 1,600 miles of trails that span 2.5 million acres, you may need to flip a coin in order to choose a path. Later, doze off with a book by the lodge's fireplace and then whip up a homemade meal in your cabin.
Slow down and take a look around with this Escape—you're sure to enjoy the scenery.
