We are a small group having some but limited capacity to host with home stays. In addition to campsites at nearby Tumalo state park, the usual airbnb suspect, VRBO and cheap motels, here are a couple unique sites with central location to consider.
A few guests have already reserved rooms at the Campfire Hotel, which is our recommendation for a central cool place with great vibe, reasonably affordable, and set up with a 100 degree outdoor salt water swimming pool and hotter hot tub.
Weather is unpredictable in April with possible 70's and sun or 40's and rain.
