Trendy, boutique hotel in the heart of downtown Portland. Close to Voodoo Donuts Old Town location and all of the Instagram worthy landmarks (if that is your thing). We love the in-room reclaimed lumber accent wall and the funky mod vibe. Priced at $110-250 nightly.
This place is a Portland gem. The flavors are bold so be warned, but for the adventurous eater (especially those liking fish) you are in for a flavor extravaganza. The dumplings are a must eat and vodka lovers have many delicious cocktail options. Currently hosting guests outdoors under individual pop-up tents. Read more on our Yelp Review.
We only tried two donut shops while in Portland, but this one ranks among the best and most memorable dounts we have ever had. We visited the Old Town and the Davis locations. Neither had huge lines but Davis had quicker service. If you eat bacon, try the Maple Bacon donut. We went back for this one a second day because it was so delicious. Check the Yelp Review.
If your destination is Crater Lake, there is no better lodging in the area unless you are camping. The unparalleled views paired with the log beam architecture is classic National Park Lodge style. Step out of the lobby area onto a back porch area where you can take in some of the most breathtaking views on the Lake. For around $200-250 dollars a night, you can stay in clean, comfortable, quaint accommodations either overlooking the parking lot or the lake. Lake views are premium. The dinner post Covid-19 was tasty and modestly prepared remining me of home-cooking. Be prepared and bring your own wine as they were not serving alcohol when we visited and there was a BYOB policy in place. Glasses and utensils are plastic. There are limited food options in the area.
