There is a rapture on the lonely shore;
There is society, where none intrudes.
By the deep sea, and music in its roar:
I love not man the less, but Nature more...

-Lord Byron

The historic Crater Lake Lodge

You may or may not be aware, but their is a list of Historic landmark hotels in America, stretching from coast to coast.

They aren't cheap, but from the history to the architecture and the quaint and uniqueness of each property, you should budget some time and money to check some of them out.

Case in point, the Crater Lake Lodge in Oregon that was built in 1915.
The grand fireplace in the lobby is perfect to enjoy a cocktail, a good book, or just curl up in the soft leather chairs and nap.

The doors that work with actual keys, not key cards. No TV, only framed pictures of past visitors. You'll find little trinkets, knobs and faucets that reek of old world charm.
Wood framed windows that give away to awe inspiring views.
It was the perfect place to spend a couple of night's whilst I explored and hiked the area of Crater Lake.
