i cannot recommend cultus lake lodge, although the lake is lovely. even if you are planning on eating at the resort after a half-day visit to the property, the employees are very unfriendly. they do not want you to park in their ample parking lot. no wonder the place is for sale--am surprised that they have any business.

A group of local cyclists arrived at Cultus Lake, ready to ride in the morning, then have lunch at the resort. Unfortunately the folks working there were less than friendly, and quite adamant that we were not welcome to park (even though we would be customers) in the far reaches of the parking lot. This is not the first time...

We have made Cultus Lake a summer treat and tradition for a beautiful day at the lake with a fun BBQ dinner in the early evening. This is a rustic resort and cafe that will take you back to the happy and simpler times of the late 60's or early 70's. It's not fancy nor luxurious. But the atmosphere is...

We have been 3 times now and every time it gets better than the last. We have eaten inside and out either one is great. Sandy and Hubby know their stuff. Applewood smoked ribs and great BBQ sauce and Sandy make the BEST pies.. Even better than Grandmas. Worth the trip, price and Flavor of Goodness. Only open a short...

We have spent summers in the area for many years. One of the openings we always look forward to is the restaurant at Cultus Lake Resort on Wednesday for all you can eat spaghetti night. The sauce is one of the best we have ever had and it is all you can eat. I don't think you can make it...

Only 30 minutes out of Sunriver is this favorite 1960's throwback to an era of tidy and functional knotty pine cabins set right on the lake's edge, in the pines! No phones, no pool but YES on pets. I love the owners Dan & Sandy--they are crazy busy, but take the time to relate to their guests! Our group of...

Cultus lake is beautiful and I highly recommend it to anyone. But, I would recommend that anyone avoid the staff at the resort at all costs. They fraudulently charged my credit card $750 and did absolutely nothing to fix it. They put it on me to call my bank and fix it. After hours on the phone and several days...

You must have rented either a jet ski or pontoon boat which requires a $750 security deposit...not a fraudulent charge. We reverse the hold and YOUR BANK must then release the funds...we are sorry you had a bad experience

Cultus Lake Resort is, as noted, a bare-bones resort on one of the most beautiful boatable Cascade lakes. The rooms have refrigerators (some), a cooktop and oven, sink, blender, a few dishes, assorted flatware and a few pots, a bathroom and fireplace. The beds come with a fitted sheet, but NOTHING ELSE, so bring all linens and kitchen equipment. The...

We go to Cultus Lake several times in the summer with our boat. It is a a great lake with beauitiful views. Most lakes in central Oregon have a 5 mph speed limit, but Cultus doesn't. They have an excellent boat launch area--we take our boat to the far end where there is a long, sandy beach...people can camp there...

I wanted to make sure that we put in a review for the wonderful time we had at Cultus Lake Resort the week of August 30th through September 6th. We have stayed previously, but it's been about ten years . After reading some of the negative reviews we got a little nervous, but we had nothing to worry about. Everyone...

“All of the cabins are on, or near the lake so you really can't get a bad cabin. My personal favorite was Cabin 11 because it has an amazing view of the lake when you wake up in the morning.”
