Point Comfort Lodge, built in 1912, is a National Historical Landmark. Sitting on the northwestern shore of Upper Klamath Lake, and at the foot of Pelican Butte, it is a mecca for fishing and birding. Nearby, Crater Lake National Park is a beautiful 45 mile drive.

A Little History
Point Comfort Lodge was built by a railroad and lumber tycoon from the mid west in 1912. At the turn of the century it was fashionable for wealthy families on the east coast to build large summer homes in the Adirondack. Most of these vacation homes were log cabin or mission style architecture. When the Klamath Development Company was developing the lumber harvesting business in Klamath Falls they built Point Comfort to be their vacation home at the foot of the Cascade Mountains on the shore of Upper Klamath Lake. Originally, four great lodges were built on Klamath Lake; they were Eagle Ridge, Odessa, Harriman Springs (built by E.H. Harriman) and Point Comfort. Point Comfort is the only one remaining today, making her the Grand Dame of the Lake.

Comfort and Relaxed Elegance
Point Comfort was designed by a renowned craftsman style architect from Berkley California. The recent restoration of Point Comfort Lodge took 7 years to complete from the hardwood floors, wood paneled walls to the windows and doors containing 805 panes of glass. Her restoration adhering to historical guidelines has earned her a place on the National Registry of Historical Places.

Lodge Style
The Lodge is furnished with a blend of contemporary furniture and valuable antiques from the Craftsman period. The Lodge’s commercial kitchen is equipped to feed many, with its Wolf range, separate icemaker, dishwasher, two refrigerators, 8 foot stainless steel sink unit and prep island with sink. There are enough dishes for 30 people.

Patios, Porches and Dock
The front entrance has a lovely covered porch that is a restful place to sit. On the lakeside of the Lodge is a deck, which overlooks the lake. Below this deck is a large cement patio, perfect for outdoor entertaining. The dock will accommodate up to eight average sized boats and comes with a ladder if you happen to jump in. A peddle boat is available for guest use. Bring lifejackets. The three acres of land surrounding the Lodge are planted in rolling lawns, and natural plant species of the surrounding area. The gardens are beautiful in the spring when the lilac bushes and the flowering trees are in bloom. There are several large rock outcroppings to set off the gentle slope to the lake.
