Patterson Lake Cabins

Patterson Lake with cabins

The Patterson Lake Cabins are nestled in a cottonwood grove on a pristine lakefront just 1.2 miles below Sun Mountain Lodge. An ideal family getaway, these cabins range in size from 10 one-bedroom units to four Loft Suites and two Grande Suites. The Patterson Lake Cabins are fully equipped with all the conveniences of home: air conditioning, full kitchens with cooking utensils, microwave and dishwasher, gas fireplaces, and large front porches overlooking the lake.  Housekeeping is offered daily. There is also a comfort station with 2 washing machines and 2 dryers available for guest use. There are no televisions or telephones in the cabins,  but cell service and WiFi service is now available. Sun Mountain Lodge charges a $23 per room per night resort fee with a portion of this fee going to help support the Shafer Museum in Winthrop.


A spacious common lawn area complete with a children’s play area and barbecue multiple facilities are available for your enjoyment. (Guests must provide their own charcoal and supplies for the barbecues.)  Lakefront activities include rental rowboats, peddle-boats, standup paddleboards, and kayaks. Other activities include fishing, swimming, volleyball, horseshoes, badminton, hiking, and mountain biking. In the winter, the Nordic ski trails are accessible right from your door.


Our guests are now able to bring their favorite canine family members along on their vacation to the Patterson Lake Cabins!

Sun Mountain Lodge will provide a special bed (with a removable, washable cover); a fold-up crate to rent for $25 if the guest forgot to bring theirs, food and water bowls, as well as a map showing the local pet-friendly trails, and a special toy for Fido.


All of the cabins *except* #612 and #613 are pet-friendly. Guests will be required to fill out a Dog Waiver upon registration as well as pay a $75 per day Fido Fee.  Some restrictions apply – some breeds will not be allowed.  More information is available here.
