An early "destination resort", the Canyon Creek Lodge was built on the homestead of Charles Noble. In addition to the main house, there were a number of unique cabins available for rent. Businessmen from throughout the Northwest scheduled retreats and vacations at Canyon Creek, the most famous visitor being First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt. Operated for decades by Mr. and Mrs. Joe Mueller, the original lodge burned in 1938 but was replaced by a new lodge right on the north side of the highway. Meals, meetings, and events were truly "special", and many visitors have heard stories of their parents' weddings at the Canyon Creek Lodge. Unfortunately, the new Lodge burned in the 1960s, marked now by a row of large rocks alongside the Mt. Loop Highway.
