My husband and I booked the Honeymoon Suite in the Chalet for our 23rd wedding anniversary. The room was not as nice as we thought it would be, but we really did enjoy the big Jacuzzi bathtub. Our only complaint is this: My husband and I are both 54 and not as agile as we used to be. We'd like to suggest that the owners put bars on each end of the tub so that older folks like us can steady themselves while getting in and out of the tub. We were going to make this suggestion when we checked out, but we both forgot! On a happier note, it snowed while we were there and it was just beautiful!

Room Tip: We always forget to ask if the room is on the main floor level, as we travel with a cooler and luggi...

We really appreciate hearing your concern! This is the first time someone has raised it, but likely not the first time someone thought it. Therefore we appreciate hearing it so we can put these suggested improvements on our "to-do" list. And you are right, more people should come to Wallowa Lake in the winter and take in the quiet beauty the off-season affords.

My wife and I sayed at Eagle Cap Chalet on Sunday night (Sep 15th) and it was wonderful. We stayed in one of the motel units, so I can't comment on the cabins, but they looked very inviting. The staff was most pleasant, even changed our room due to some noisy neighbors next door. The area is just beautiful, the room was very comfortable, small TV, but you are not there to watch TV. Free coffee in the morning and great rolls and muffins. Next time we will stay for a longer time and enjoy all the things there are to do in the area. We would recommend this place to anyone.

Highly recommend this place. It's nestled in the Wallowa Mountains. Cozy little area right near the Tram. They allow pets with a small fee; plus they provide dog supplies in the room: a water bowl, snacks, poop bags, towels & sheet (in case your pup sleeps on the bed). The place is family owned ; their pride for care & service is evident. Free coffee coupons each day for their espresso shop. Easy check in and out. Nice pool & hot tub. We would definitely stay with them again.

The staff are genuinely nice, helpful people, but that's it for the nice things I have to say. I stayed in one of the condos with the full kitchen. The exterior of the building is quite attractive, but the interior looks like my grandma's basement and smells worse. There is no air conditioning, and on the second floor it was 85-90 degrees inside all the time, even with the windows open and 55 degrees outside. I think someone beneath me was running their fireplace all night. The beds are mattresses atop rough slabs of particle board that I kept bashing my knees into in the tiny room. The bathroom vanity is the smallest I've ever seen and gets super-heated from it's 3 large bulbs (bad when it's already 85 in the condo). The only two comfortable chairs in the living room both had fleas. And last, but not least, you are required to wash your own dishes (by hand) and empty your own garbages if you don't want to be charged an "extra cleaning fee." Naturally, the dishes in the cupboard were not clean. The cleaning staff leaves you an envelope inviting you to tip them for their excellent work, but since we had dirty pillow cases, dirty towels, flea bites, and spent an hour washing dishes and emptying the garbages, I left it empty. The area is awesome, and it was nice to be within walking distance of the tram, but I will never stay at Eagle Cap Chalets again.

We stayed here for two night during our recent road trip. There are motel rooms, condos, and cabins available. We stayed in a two double bed chalet room.

Location: At the south end of Wallowa Lake, within the community of RV resorts, cabins, hotels. Eagle Cap Chalets is right across from a busy RV park. Wallowa Lake state park and the Wallowa Lake tram station are within walking distance. Eagle Cap wilderness has plenty of hiking options. Joseph and Enterprise are with a short drive. One thing about the chalet is that parking seems quite limited, so parking right in front of your room to load or unload might not be possible.

Rooms: The room we stayed in had two double beds. There were a refrigerator and a microwave. The room was quite small for two adults and two children. There was no air conditioning. In the evening the rooms very quite hot. The windows open but there wasn't any real cross ventilation. The rooms were clean, beds were ok. WIFI was available. This place is pet friendly and they let you leave your dog in a crate in the room. There is swimming in Wallowa Lake, and the there is also a small outdoor pool available.

Summary: Overall our stay was ok, we did end up paying $140 per night which for a room without AC is quite expensive. Location is quite nice of course. Would come back but get a bigger room next time.

We stayed in Cabin 2 for 3 nights Mon - Wed and were elated at the overall look of the resort and then we went in the cabin. "Outdated" is being kind to the interior accommodations. Bedroom too small for a suitcase. Broken down sofa in the living area. When we lifted the cushions to see if it was a sofa bed, found crumbs and candy wrappers and the table was also covered with crumbs and salt. The fridge leaked water on the floor - management left a plastic container with a note attached to not move it so as to catch the drips ?? Seat cushions at the table are torn. No AC, but 1 small table fan is in the cabin. Gas fireplace worked great !! Not much else positive to say, except it was quiet.

We have stayed at this RV park four times now, most recently in August 2012. The park is quiet, clean, and well-kept, and the sites we've stayed at have had grassy lawn areas where the kids can play. Many of the sites have shade from trees. You can walk just about anywhere: to the lake for swimming and fishing; to activities such as mini golf, the Wallowa Lake Tramway, bumper boats and go carts, a horseback riding stable, hiking trails, shops, and little restaurants. Open campfires aren't allowed, so we don't have to worry about asthma attacks from the smoke. Most of the campers in the summertime seem to be retired folks and young families. We're definitely planning to come back next year! (Note: Park at the River is now separate from Eagle Cap Chalets.)
