Vali's Alpine Restaurant closes after Sunday of Labor Day Weekend. If you haven't had the chance yet to have dinner with Maggie and Michael and Dionne then you'd best book your reservation soon! They offer only one entree choice per night, with only two seatings (5 pm and 7 pm and by reservation only) and they do not accept credit cards. Don't let these restrictions deter you from one of the finest meals and restaurant atmospheres in Wallowa County.
You'll find their menu and more information at their website.
We do have bed and breakfast guests that book their dinner reservations with Vali's first and then look for their Wallowa Lake lodging--call them at 541-432-5691 to reserve your table on the night of your choosing.
The Wallowa Lake Marina shuts down for the season around mid-September so you'll have a little extra time to take out a motorboat, kayak, paddle boat or canoe. And the Marina Store has all the things that fishing people need plus great tips from Gina and her staff.
And the Wallowa Lake Tramway is scheduled to close around the first weekend of October 2011. They're especially busy over Labor Day Weekend--if you plan to ride the tram, you might consider the two-day pass that allows for two opportunities to soak in the view. Landscape photography is always better at the ends of the day rather than at noon. With a two-day pass, you can plan to be the first up the tram one day and last up the tram on the next.
Regardless of what you choose to do over Labor Day Weekend, if you're looking for a Wallowa Lake hotel or some Joseph Oregon hotels, we hope you'll consider our bed and breakfast. With dedicated air-conditioning and an attached private bathroom for each guest room and plenty of amenities, we think your Labor Day Weekend vacation in Eastern Oregon will be all the richer for staying at the Bronze Antler Bed & Breakfast. Thanks!
