We stayed in Suite 3. The room was modern and clean, overlooking the lake with a small, covered patio for two that was perfect to enjoy a peaceful coffee and breakfast while enjoying the views.

Lakeside Dining And Campfire S’mores
There is something about a lakeside dinner that just makes it feel special. Maybe it is the way the water reflects the setting sun, or maybe it is the sound of the water gently lapping against the shore. Whatever the reason, there is no denying that a lakeside dinner is a great way to spend an evening.
We were fortunate enough to be invited to attend a dinner at the Lodge On Harrison Lake with some fellow content creators. The setting was incredible – a moody PNW evening. It started to rain as we were making our way to the lodge on a jet boat tour. We opted to leave the setup in the rain and as we all sat down for dinner, the rain stopped.
We were seated at tables overlooking the lake, and we could see the gorgeous lake and mountain scenery in the distance. The meal was truly amazing – each course was more DELICIOUS than the last.
While you would have to be invited to an event at The Lodge On The Lake to have a dining experience like this, if you are invited – know it will be nothing short of fabulous.
And of course, no lakeside dinner is complete without a campfire and some s’mores. There is just something about roasted marshmallows and melted chocolate that makes even the most ordinary conversation seem special. If you are looking to spend an evening surrounded by great company, look no further than a lakeside dinner and campfire s’mores.
The Barrel Sauna
The Lodge On Harrison Lake has a great relaxation feature option, the barrel sauna. There is nothing quite like feeling the relaxation that comes from spending time in a sauna. When you add in a stunning view, the experience is even more special as you relax and recharge.
A barrel sauna is a type of Finnish sauna that is typically made from wood. Barrel saunas have a more naturalistic appearance than other types of saunas, and they offer a cozy, intimate atmosphere.
It was incredible after a long day of exploring to be able to take a short walk from our suite and enjoy some time in the barrel sauna and relax.
