Lonesome Duck Ranch
Our stay at Lonesome Duck Ranch was the best, most peaceful and comfortable vacation location we have ever experienced. Our hosts were so kind and gracious. They were available to us, more like neighbors, if we needed anything, and always friendly. The cabin is perfect rustic comfort. The bed was wonderful. We were able to cook and enjoy our meals in the cabin, social distancing in the best possible way. The location on the Williamson River is really what makes it the most memorable. We could watch for birds and simply relax surrounded by the beauty of the area. There is a peace at Lonesome Duck Ranch. Something we all need. The Klamath Basin and Crater Lake areas provide so much to see and experience if you love spending time in nature. We loved the abundance of Fall colors. We will definitely come back with our family and spend more time. Lonesome Duck Ranch is a perfect setting for families or a romantic get-away. The ranch is very special.

4/5 Good

Beautiful location, a few things to know
Overall, we loved our stay at Lonesome Duck ranch. The communication prior to our arrival was excellent. The landscape is beautiful and the access to Crater Lake and may other Oregon attractions is terrific. The log cabin was sparkling clean; it felt like it was almost brand new! We enjoyed NOT having a TV and the Wifi allowed us all of the connectivity we needed. There were two things that hold us back from 5 stars here. 1) the water in the cabin smells like sulfur (rotten eggs). While there is a Brita provided, it is an unpleasant smell every time you run the tap / shower / etc. We'd recommend that the owners think about a built-in water filtration system as it is really unpleasant. 2) the log cabin is not quite as private as it seems; there were multiple staying on the property (in RVs, guest of the owners, etc) that walked through the property. Not the end of the world, but probably not quite the secluded location it seemed in the description. Overall, we really liked it and feel lucky to have visited!

5/5 Excellent
