In the Pacific Northwest, Oregon has breathtaking nature, a rich wine region and many adventures. Canoe on Crater Lake, play poker along the Rogue River or shop in small businesses in the little coastal towns. Indulge in it all with a stay at one of the best hideaways the state has to offer. Read on for our favorite cabins and lodges in Oregon – bookable on Culture Trip.

1. Crater Lake Resort, for outdoor adventures

Stay in style beside Crater Lake, either in a waterside one-bed cabin equipped with a kitchenette or a two-bedroom, two-bath option with satellite TV, complimentary wifi and personal barbecue stations. Want something out of the ordinary? Opt for one of the resort’s glamping sites, queen bed included. While you’re here, take one of the free canoes out on the lake and let the kids loose in the playground as you charge your electric vehicle in the parking lot. In winter, have a go at snowshoeing, and in the summer, spread out in the commons for live music and great eating from food trucks.

2. Weasku Inn, for a historical stay

Weasku Inn’s historic main lodge has hosted many celebrities, including Clark Gable, Bing Crosby and Walt Disney. Head out along the Rogue River, just outside Grants Pass, or make the trek out to the Rogue River-Siskiyou National Forest, a short drive away. Once you’re back for the day, warm yourself up by the hand-laid fireplace made from river rock, or stake your place at the poker table and prepare to take on your fellow guests. After you’ve played your hand, head up to your room, filled with cozy details such as rustic wooden furniture and exposed beam ceilings.

3. Callahan’s Mountain Lodge, for nearby skiing

Carved into the Siskiyou Mountains in Southern Oregon, this lodge is close to a number of attractions, including Mount Ashland, well known for its skiing. You’re also an easy drive from Emigrant Lake County Park and more than a dozen wineries. A spin away is California along I-5 – if you’re looking to head south. The rooms at Callahan’s are cushy, and many include ensuite whirlpool tubs. The on-site restaurant is also essential to visit at least once; it serves comfort food such as biscuits and gravy for breakfast and a killer prime rib for dinner.

4. Running Y Ranch Resort, for a back-to-nature experience

Let loose at the Running Y Ranch Resort, along the shores of Upper Klamath Lake – the biggest body of water in the state – in south-central Oregon. Explore the grounds – 3,600 acres (1,457ha) – which aren’t far from the picturesque Crater Lake, and try your hand at back-to-nature activities, such as whitewater rafting, fly fishing and a round of clubbing on the resort’s 18-hole Arnold Palmer Signature golf course. Back at the 82-room lodge, you’ll find it easy to switch off; it’s a haven of warm, coffee-colored walls, tall leather headboards and sleek, modern bathrooms.

5. Mountain Pine Cabin, for wilderness views

This two-bedroom, one-bath cottage is right on the shores of the Hyatt Reservoir, close to Table Mountain Snow Park and Howard Prairie Lake in Jackson County, Oregon. You’ll have the tranquil grounds all to yourself – not to mention outstanding wilderness views from the outdoor balcony. Step inside to find amenities such as a full kitchen, a washer and a dryer and a classic freestanding fireplace. Perhaps best of all? This pet-friendly spot has room for your pooch, too.

6. Cozy Cabin La Pine, for a home-away-from-home retreat

This holiday home is the perfect gateway to Deschutes National Forest and nearby rivers, including the Deschutes River and Fall River. It’s also conveniently close to shops and restaurants in La Pine. The three-bedroom, two-bathroom house is perfect for larger families or groups, with plenty of space inside and out. If the weather is nice, grill out on the deck, or try your hand at fishing. In winter, it’ll likely be blanketed in photogenic snow, so hole up in your simple but cozy room.

7. Salishan Coastal Lodge, for a seaside getaway

Head west for this seaside accommodation – a two-hour drive from Portland. You’ll be right off the Pacific Coast Scenic Byway (US Route 101), in the magnificent countryside. The 250 surrounding acres (101ha) are dense with towering douglas firs, which also fill the nearby Siletz Bay National Wildlife Refuge. Don’t miss dining at one of the resort’s three casual spots, all highlighting locally grown and caught products; the Bay House at Salishan has winning ways with duck, beef, pork and halibut, and caters for non-meat-eaters, too. Rooms also feature local touches, such as native wooden headboards and stone-peppered decor, which you’ll want to share on Instagram.

8. River Lodge and Cabins, for riverside panoramas

Find your safe haven in one of the lodge guest rooms or nine cabins along the Columbia River in northeastern Oregon. Despite feeling off the beaten track, it’s just a stone’s throw from Washington. Unwind to the soothing sound of the river running by your room, head down to the beach or take a dip in the hotel’s outdoor pool. At the on-site restaurant, Two Barrels Taps + Grill, try the pub grub-like wings, nachos or even fish and chips. Down the road, a handful of breweries serve up their locally made beers.

9. The Coho Oceanfront Lodge, for beautiful sunsets

This stunning retreat, right on the beach in Lincoln City, gives you a great escape that doesn’t involve heading out into the wilderness. Almost all studios and suites have sweeping views of the Pacific Ocean below, and the outdoor firepits are the dream location from which to see the sunset. It’s two blocks from the Oregon Coast Highway, putting you within easy walking distance of restaurants, boutiques and small art galleries. If you fancy a flutter, you’re also a short drive from Chinook Winds Casino Resort. Plenty of nature is also within reach – see how much of the surrounding marine reserves, Devils Lake and Cascade Head you can squeeze in before returning to sip beer or wine at the lodge.

10. The Lodge at Riverside, for a taste of the region

You’re in for a wild ride at this lodge along the banks of the Rogue River. The Lodge at Riverside, with 33 rooms and suites, is perfect for anyone looking to explore the wine country in Southern Oregon. You can get a taste of what the region has to offer at the hotel’s evening wine and cheese reception, but don’t miss the before-bed milk and cookies, either. The suites – including the ADA-compliant option with two queen beds – are cushy and good-looking, with light-washed wooden French doors, exposed beam ceilings and, in some cases, serene river views.
