I like to avoid weekend getaways that are too close to the highway and one of my friends recommended the Loon Lake Lodge in Reedsport, Oregon for its peaceful ambience.
We drove from the Eugene airport and were greeted by a herd of elk grazing away unperturbed by the curious onlookers. That set the tone for the trip which was one of the best we have had in recent times. Loon Lake is a great place. It’s easily accessible and yet, has a natural aura about it. Coming back to the resort, we are a family of 3. But we chose a riverfront cottage. It has a deck that overlooks the lake and there’s nothing like having a drink hearing the loons in the distance. Just melts the stress away. The cottage was very spacious and well furnished. The kitchen was well stocked. And the linen was clean and fresh.
The marina area has different types of boats for rental and we spent some time in a Pontoon boat which was a first for the kid. I tried by hand at Canoeing but it was a lot more difficult than it seems. The kid was also introduced to fishing. Her first time and she caught her first fish within minutes.
If you are looking for a quiet and peaceful place with great services that wont drain your pocket, then this is it.
