As local travel experts, we know what travelers are looking for when it comes to finding the perfect accommodations for their next trip. To compile our lists, we scour the internet to find properties with excellent ratings and reviews, desirable amenities, nearby attractions, and that something special that makes a destination worthy of traveling for.

While we adore the Oregon Coast and consider ourselves so lucky to have the Pacific Ocean right in our backyard, there’s something wholly comforting and wonderful about a day at a lake. Inherently cozier and just as beguiling as their salt-water brethren, lakes offer a different kind of experience worth seeking out. Oregon is home to some truly dazzling lakes, of course, from the world-famous Crater Lake to the aptly named Clear Lake, there are beautiful bodies of water to enjoy in Oregon. For those looking to take #lakelife to the next level, we suggest checking out the houseboats on Lake Billy Chinook — and then get ready to set sail for an unforgettable adventure in Oregon!
