Crater Lake’s closest full service town is showcased by the Prospect Historic Hotel-Motel and Dinner House. Built in 1888 as a Stage Coach Stop half-way between the Rogue Valley and Crater Lake, this Nationally Registered Historic Hotel has been restored to all of its glory.
Crater Lake National Park is just 28 miles away. The Hotel is located between National Forests, wilderness areas and BLM land, on the banks of year round Mill Creek, and just a short stroll to the Rogue River and three water falls. Ideally situated for Hiking, Biking, Rafting, Fishing, Birding, Boating, and Hunting summer adventures and winter Cross Country Skiing or Snowshoeing at Crater Lake.
The Historic Hotel provides lodging as a 10 room Bed and Breakfast Inn with exquisite period decorated rooms, private baths and beautiful quilts on every bed. Hearty, full, belly-filling breakfasts continue the traditions of the original owners. Stay where Teddy Roosevelt, Jack London, Zane Grey, John Muir, William Jennings Bryan, and Hubert Humphrey slept. Relax in the sitting parlors, warming your toes at the fireplace and catch up on local history. Unwind on the Veranda with a glass of wine and a good book.
The Dinner House restaurant continues tradition by creating the best food in the region. According to Sunset Magazine it is “the best Dinner House between Crater Lake and Medford”. Our signature Prime Rib ‘is the best in Southern Oregon’, and the Lemon Dill Roasted Salmon is ‘better than what we just caught’. We are known for our friendly service, large portions, tongue tantalizing tastes, delectable desserts and affordable pricing.
The Modern Motel (built in 1991 behind the Hotel) has 14 family and pet friendly rooms with Cable TV, Microwave, Refrigerator, and coffee, some with kitchenettes and some sleep up to 6 people.
The Hotel and Motel sit on over 5 acres of park like grounds. With over 500 ft of Mill Creek running through the property there are plenty of opportunities to enjoy the serenity of the babble of this beautiful mountain stream. Stroll the grassy areas, play horseshoes, visit our two horses, or play with our ‘Official Greeters’, our dogs; Chewbacca and Phoenix. Feed the rainbow trout in our pond (if the otters haven’t eaten all of them). Take your picture with our three bears (wood carving) that keep watch over the grounds.
