Lakeview Lodge Motel
&  your escape to​
Oregon's Outback

The Lakeview Lodge

The Town of Lakeview, established in 1876 is the county seat of Lake County Oregon. With an elevation of 4798 feet, Lakeview is often referred to as the "Tallest Town in Oregon".  Lakeview is situated at the foot of the Warner Mountains and at the edge of the southeast Oregon High Desert.
Since 1952 the Lakeview Lodge Motel has hosted weary travelers, artists, poets, musicians, movie stars, politicians, cattle barons and, of course, down to earth cowboys who have all found a spot to tie up their horses and hang up their hats and boots. We hope to see you soon.
  1. A Historic Landmark
    For over 60 years we have been the spot to rest your head and refresh your body after traveling for miles across the 'Oregon Outback'. Our basic but comfortable, clean and relaxing rooms offer excellent value for money. The Lakeview Lodge is the closest lodging establish to downtown Lakeview and is within walking distance of 8 local eateries, the city park, the County Courthouse, Town Hall and the town community swimming pool.
  2. Quaint yet Modern
    OK, we know we are getting on in years and out in the boonies, but we also understand that guests occasionally like to keep up to date with what's happening in the big wide world. So as a concession to the 21st century we have installed 32" flat screen televisions in all of our rooms that come with over 75 free cable channels ( including HBO, CNN, ESPN, Fox News, & of course the Country Music Chanel). We also have fridges, microwaves and coffee makers in each room.
  3. Relax a Bit
    If you insist on being followed by the hectic big city life at least soak a little in our 8 person hot tub under the clear, starry nights. You could sit in the warm waters and check your emails on our complimentary laid back WiFi (we don't claim it to be high speed as nothing is high speed in Lakeview but it should get the job done). We also have a computer and printer in the lobby for guests to use. Copying & faxing are available at nominal rates.

A Few Things To See & Do in Sleepy Lakeview


In the Area

A leisurly 2 hour drive will take you to Crater Lake National Park - the only National Park in Oregon. Crater Lake is the result of a volcanic eruption of the 12,000 ft  volcano known as Mount Mazama during an enormous eruption approximately 7,700 years ago. The eruption changed the landscape all around &  the volcanic fell as far away as  central Canada. Since the climactic eruption, there have been several less violent, smaller postcaldera eruptions within the caldera itself.

Dig for Oregon's Sunstone

The ever growing pastime of rock hounding (searching for precious or semi-precious gem stones) is alive and well in Lake County where Oregon's official gem stone is found in abundance close to Lakeview. Commercial digging mines are located a short drive away as well as digging mines for rubies. More and more individuals are spending a day or two having a fun family time with their shirt sleves rolled up.  

Warner Canyon Ski Area

Warner Canyon Ski Area is a small community ski area owned by Lake County and run by the Fremont Highlander Ski Club. This area is known for non-existant lift lines and uncrowded slopes with extremely reasonable lift ticket prices.

In addition to alpine skiing, Warner Canyon offers numerous trails for cross country skiing and snowshoeing. Children will also find tons of things to do on the mountain and on the snowplay area.

Getting to Warner Canyon Ski Area is a snap. Go 2½ miles north on Highway 395, and turn right on Highway 140. Take Highway 140 east for 4.2 miles, you should see the entrance sign. Don't forget your Oregon State SnoPark Permit

Biking of all sorts

Lakeview is a stopping point on the Trans-America Trail (TAT). The Trail starts in Southeastern Tennessee, and ends at the Pacific Ocean in southwestern Oregon – nearly 5,000 miles of mostly off-pavement riding. The Lakeview Lodge is a favorite of TAT riders from around the world who spend a night or two recovering from the bumps of the ride.
The bike friendly Lakeview Lodge Motel has been taking care of cyclists for many years. Numerous mountain bike trails begin within yards of the downtown area and when riding the uncrowded roads and highways you are more likely to see deer, antelope and other wildlife than many vehicles. Bike riders of all kinds are most welcome.
