The Suttle Lodge & Boathouse in Sisters, Oregon, near Bend, has announced a Wednesday night cookouts series and guest brewery lineup for the summer. This recently remodeled lakeside lodge is under new ownership and looks like a prime spot to getaway from town while still enjoying some great craft brewers and brewers.

More from a press release:

The Boathouse restaurant is now open to overnight guests and daytrippers, and a series of Wednesday night cookouts are planned on the lawn overlooking pristine Suttle Lake. Each Wednesday night from June 14th to July 19th, the lodge will host a casual cookout — dinner cooked outdoors on the grill, and enjoyed on the lawn. Each cookout will feature a different guest brewery from around Oregon (and one cidery) pouring four seasonal beers. Representatives from the breweries will be on hand to talk with guests about the beers (some seasonal or limited releases). The cookouts are laid back, and family friendly — a relaxed way to make the most of a summer day spent playing lawn games, hiking, canoeing, or swimming in Suttle Lake.

About The Suttle Lodge & Boathouse

The Suttle Lodge & Boathouse opened in August, 2016. The Lodge is a year-round rustic resort on the shore of Suttle Lake in the Deschutes National Forest near Sisters, Oregon. The 15.5-acre property is comprised of a large timber lodge with guest rooms and cocktail bar, fully equipped lakeside cabins, rustic camping cabins, and The Boathouse lakefront restaurant with a grocery and lake recreation rentals.  Versions of this resort have been in continuous operation since the 1930s. Robert Sacks and Dave Schrott of A&R Development, owners of the Clyde Hotel building in Portland which houses the Ace Hotel, purchased the former Lodge at Suttle Lake in October, 2015. In its newest incarnation, the Suttle Lodge & Boathouse has been revived and operated by The Mighty Union, a hospitality project from the folks behind the Ace Hotel Portland,  Spirit of 77 and Pepe Le Moko. The focus is on public social spaces: convivial gathering places grounded in the bounty of Oregon food and drink and geared towards the activities and beauty of a forest lake. Food menus in the lodge and Boathouse are created by chef Joshua McFadden of Portland’s Ava Gene’s, with cocktails by Sean Hoard of Portland’s The Commissary. The lodge is located at 13300 US Highway 20, Sisters, Oregon, 97759. Tel. 541.638.7001 | | Instagram @SuttleLodge
