Lonesome Duck

Lonesome Duck, Crater Lake National Park, USA

Set half an hour south of Crater Lake National Park, the Lonesome Duck offers character accommodation set in 200 acres of private land. The property is situated in the shadow of Crater Lake and borders the Williamson River to the west and north, both of which offer a bounty of fish and the bird life that preys on them. 600,000 acres of forest and mountains border to the east and the property is reached by traversing a one and a half mile entry road from the south; it's remote! As soon as you pass the entry gate, you’ll know you are in for a unique experience. The wild native trout are huge, the wildlife abundant, the gardens bountiful, and the accommodation provides the perfect setting to unwind or to get more active and explore the local terrain.

The Arrowhead cottage has two bedrooms, one bathroom, a dining room, living room, screened porch, and a fully equipped kitchen. There is no restaurant here so do stock up on provisions before you arrive. The private covered porch is the perfect place to kick back, unwind and watch the river roll by.

The River's Edge is a 1500 square foot log home. Downstairs is a bedroom with two twin beds, a bathroom, kitchen, dining room, and a living room with wood stove. Upstairs is a queen bedroom, sleeping loft with two twins beds, and a bathroom. A large covered porch overlooks the river and opens onto a lawned area complete with hammock, picnic tables, and a large barbecue. The pier provides easy access to the Williamson river.
