There is a lovely view of Wallowa Lake from the deck and forested lawn behind the lodge. 

    There are 2-person rooms with one bed and 4-person rooms and cabins with 2 beds. Some rooms and cabins are suitable for sharing for additional savings. If attendees go this route, one person should select registration option #1 and the other option #2 (see PRICING below ).
