About The Suttle Lodge
The Suttle Lodge opened in August, 2016, a year-round rustic resort on the shore of Suttle Lake in the Deschutes National Forest in Central Oregon. The 15.5-acre property is comprised of a large timber lodge with guest rooms and cocktail bar, fully equipped lakeside cabins, rustic camping cabins, and The Boathouse lakefront restaurant. Versions of this resort have been in continuous operation since the 1930s. In its newest incarnation, the Suttle Lodge & Boathouse has been revived and operated by The Mighty Union, a hospitality project from some of the folks behind the Ace Hotel Portland. In addition to 11 lodge rooms and eight rustic cabins, six deluxe cabins were updated in the summer of 2017, and boast lakeside or creekside views, kitchenettes, porches, Traeger grills, full bathrooms and sleep up to eight people. Food menus in the lodge and Boathouse were created by chef Joshua McFadden of Portland’s Ava Gene’s, with cocktails by Sean Hoard (former barman at PDT and Teardrop Lounge). In the winter, guests of The Suttle Lodge can borrow snowshoes from the front desk to explore the forest trails leading from the property, or follow the 3 mile lakefront loop. There’s also downhill and Nordic skiing nearby (just 9 miles up the road) at Hoodoo Ski Area, and numerous hot springs in the region. The lodge is located at 13300 US Highway 20, Sisters, Oregon, 97759. Tel. 541.638.7001 | TheSuttleLodge.com | Instagram @SuttleLodge
