FivePine Lodge History
FivePine Lodge was built on a desire to create a space where guests could come and reconnect with nature, themselves, and their loved ones. This is apparent in the location, architecture, and overall vibe of the area.
Family is the center of all they do here, and you can see that in their logo! The five lines in the design represent the Willits’ founding family’s four boys and one girl, and the sun represents optimism for the future.
Today, FivePine Lodge is rated as one of the best hotels in Oregon! From their exceptional service to the ideal location, we dare you to find a better lodge!

FivePine Is An Eco-Friendly Lodge
FivePine Lodge is dedicated to running the business and operations of the lodge as eco-friendly as they possibly can.
From the very beginning, FivePine Lodge considered the footprint of the treasured forest and moved cabins and features to reduce the amount of tree loss during construction. You can definitely see this in the way the cabins weave in and out amongst the trees!
They are also focused on conservation whenever possible. This takes the form of energy-efficient lighting, room amenities, recycling on campus, and even green cleaning products.
Did we also mention that FivePine Lodge is pet-friendly? Bring your furry friends along!

FivePine Lodge Day 1
Take A Walk Around The Campus
There is so much to explore around FivePine Lodge, so why not start your stay with a walking tour of the property? (By the way, click here for a downloadable map to orient yourself!)
Endless bike paths and maintained trails make it easy to weave through the trees and explore the area. From the babbling creek that crossed the property to the delighted birds playing in the trees, you’ll almost forget you’re in town!
Finally, your final stop at the main lodge will bring you to their complimentary wine and beer social hour. Between 5:00 – 6:00pm every night, come enjoy local libations on the house, and meet some other guests. You may even make a new friend or two!
Elda Teresa Conference Center
Elda Teresa Willits is the mother/grandmother of the FivePine Lodge Family. Her memory lives on in dedication of the conference center on campus, as she was an entrepreneur who valued collaboration with other people and ideas.
The logo inscribed on the exterior of the building says, “A Bridge Between Two Worlds” which represents communities coming together to leave their old ways of thinking behind.
Complimentary Media and Game Library
Looking for a cozy night in? FivePine Lodge can make that happen.
From DVD’s to books to board games, the lodge probably has it on hand! We spent quite some time browsing the huge movie selection in the lobby and came back to our room with some flicks to enjoy at night.
Three Creeks Brewing Co.
Three Creeks Brewing is within walking distance from the cabins, right across from the Sisters Movie House!
Here, you can enjoy casual family dining with tons of award-winning local beers. The building was built to depict an old horse stable, so you will find western elements and rustic details throughout the restaurant.
Watch The Sunset From Your Private Deck
Many of the cabins available at FivePine Lodge have an unobstructed view into the quiet forest of pine trees. Berty and I spent our first night here sipping tea, enjoying the crisp autumn air, and watching the sunset.
We suggest grabbing a blanket from the inside (and maybe even a hat too!) to enjoy those early fall sunsets.
Curious about what you should back? Here’s our complete cozy cabin packing list!
FivePine Lodge Day 2
Now that you’ve experienced the FivePine Campus, it’s now time to expand your exploration! On this day, we’re sharing about local shops and cafes, and our favorite way of getting around town.
If you’re feeling a little more adventurous, there are so many outdoor things to do in Central Oregon! From Oregon hot springs tucked in the Cascade Mountains to the colorfully Painted Hills of the John Day Fossil Beds National Monument, there’s a little something for everyone.
Complimentary Town Bikes and Mountain Bikes
One of the highlights of our time at FivePine Lodge was taking their complimentary bikes around town!
Checking them out was easy – we just asked the front desk, signed a waiver, and went on our way! You can choose between their town bikes (with darling front baskets!) and mountain bikes for a choose-your-own-adventure morning.
The town is full of bike-friendly paths, so we ended up getting to the center of town within 15 minutes!

Exploring Sisters Downtown Area
On bike or on foot, Sisters’ Downtown scene is filled to the brim with unique art galleries, local shops, and tons of antiques!
Spend some time browsing the stores to find your own buried treasures, and maybe even grab a coffee and fresh-baked pastry on your way.
There are things to do year-round in Sisters’ Downtown area. Summer brings ice cream cones, lunches on the patio and the Sisters Quilting Show every July. The colder seasons bring winter concerts and enjoying a cozy dinner at their many wonderful restaurants.

Just bring your photo ID, your room key, and enjoy! Berty and I spent some time soaking in the hot tub after our bike ride, and it was the perfect crisp afternoon to relieve our muscles and enjoy the fresh air!

Enjoy Breakfast Out On The Deck
During our stay, Berty and I had the opportunity to take advantage of their breakfast delivery service. At check-in, they gave us a menu to check off breakfast items we wanted, and instructions to leave it hanging on the outside of our cabin door the night before.
Then magically in the morning, breakfast and piping hot coffee was delivered in a picnic basket! It was full of goodies like fresh baked goods from Sisters Bakery, fresh fruit, and even mimosas!
Amenities on The FivePine Campus
We spent an entire weekend at FivePine Lodge and still didn’t take advantage of all the amazing amenities they had on campus! (Looks like a second trip needs to happen soon!)
Here are some other unique services FivePine Lodge offers:
Sisters Movie House
Conveniently located just a quick 5-minute walk from the cabins is Sisters Movie House!
Sisters Movie House is a unique movie theater that includes four movie screens, current box office hits, and even themed movies! (We came during Halloween time and they were showing spooky flicks!)
Tickets are $10 per movie, and you can ask and see if there are discounted tickets for sale at the FivePine Lodge Front Desk.

(Don’t have time to book an appointment? Create your own spa day in your cabin like in the photo below!) We stayed in the FivePine Lodge Serenity Cabin.
But Why FivePine Lodge?
What takes a hotel to the next level is elevating someone from feeling like a customer to a guest. FivePine Lodge not only delivered on this, but they even made us feel like part of the family!
To say we felt important and special doesn’t even cover the beginning of the service provided to us! The staff knew our names when we walked in the lobby from a day of biking around town and they went above and beyond to make sure our stay was perfect.
Thanks again FivePine Lodge for giving us the opportunity to share about your beautiful hotel in Sisters, Oregon!
