Looking for a fun, weekend (or weekday) getaway that involves MUSIC? The Suttle Lodge, located in Deschutes National Forest (about 2 hours from Eugene) is an unexpected concert venue that’s perfect for college students looking for a little adventure. When you book a cabin at the lodge, you automatically get FREE access to the music events on site! This homey, unique venue has put on some insanely cool shows, including a summer music festival lead by Chris Funk of The Decemberists during the 2017 solar eclipse. This summer, Jacob Miller, Alela Diane, The Blank Tapes, and Bear Clouds will be stopping by the lodge for performances.
The lodge’s rustic or lakeside cabins are great for friend groups traveling to the forest for a late night show, as they fit up to six people. This is the perfect opportunity to gather your best friends for an intimate show with some of your favorite artists, grab a few drinks and dinner at the lodge bar, and then crash in a cozy cabin for the night. If you’re looking for more to do the next day, they’ve got you covered! There are plenty of opportunities to boat, bike, stargaze and more.
The Lodge’s final Fireside show (a fairly new music series they’ve been putting on) will be Wednesday, April 10th, at 7 pm. Philadelphia-based band Hop Along, with Summer Cannibals, will close out the season. (Psst–are you a superfan of either of these groups? Pro tip: get to the lodge early and you’ll probably spot them hanging out at the lodge or Skip bar!) Book your tickets ($12) here, adventurers: http://www.thesuttlelodge.com/happenings.
