If you like a more relaxed, slower paced getaway, you can stroll the nature paths, delight in the exceptional bird watching, or just read a book in the sitting room.

Spring and Fall

Birds, fishing, wildflowers, wildlife, all of these things are plentiful in the fall and spring at the Mazama Country Inn. Springtime can be a very quiet time at the Inn. Take a leisurely stroll or more ambitious hike through wildflowers. Bring binoculars for bird watching. You can visit the quaint little western town of Winthrop and do some shopping, or just walk along the boardwalk. If you need some excitement, there is white water rafting. You can also catch some late season heli skiing or back country skiing.
During the Fall we have a spectacular natural display of fall colors here in the valley. The days are often warm and yet the crowds are gone, so fall means some of the best hiking and mountain biking of the year. A perfect time for a retreat. See special rates for low season and group discounts in Rates and Reservations.
