“After a recommendation from a friend on the shuttle service up to the McKenzie river trail my wife and I decided to make a short trip from Bend to ride the McKenzie river trail and stay at the lodge. We arrived in the morning and the shuttle took us and our bikes up to the top of McKenzie River trail. Shuttle driver was friendly and informed us of some of the other trails to take advantage of the next time we were in town. The trail was beautiful but a bit long and technical for my wife who was on her 2nd ride of the year on her mountain bike. We stayed in the Tamolitch Cabin. It was a perfect balance of rustic with modern amenities. The rooms and amenities were well thought out to make sure the guests had an enjoyable experience in which we did. Alyssa and here husband were there to make sure we had everything we needed. We will definitely revisit Horse Creek soon and this time stay an extra night.” — Mike T. (via Yelp)More Reviews
