“5 Star Rating”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 May 2012

My wife and I stayed here, along with 2 other hotels during our 4 week honeymoon in Gold Beach. This one is probably the best we have ever been too. It is very beautiful, staff are friendly, really clean rooms, good food, a little on the pricey side but it is well worth it

I'll first qualify my review by saying we stayed for our first time at Tu Tu Tun Lodge during it's self-described "winter off-season." Apparently it is a very, very different experience during the summer. For our stay, there was no lunch or dinner service in the restaurant, which is disappointing given the Lodge's culinary reputation. And, the pool is not serviced during off-season. There is certainly a feeling that the Lodge is half closed-down. This is all clearly stated in the Lodge's website and in the follow-up materials sent after reservations are made. I just wasn't paying close enough attention. And, we were looking for real quiet and solitude, so ultimately the off-season vibe didn't detract from a wonderful experience.

We rented the River House, which was a perfect choice for our family of four - My wife and I and daughter, 13, and son, 10. The house is stylishly appointed and feels upscale in such a remote location. Gorgeous views of the Rogue River from most windows in the house, and a deck that was a great place to enjoy a warm beverage and a game of chess. The kitchen provided us the means to enjoy a home-cooked family meal together, and the hot tub was in perfect working condition and made for very enjoyable breaks in the afternoons and evenings.

The Lodge itself is also beautifully appointed, and we enjoyed a very good breakfast and a few afternoons of wine-tasting and relaxing by the large fireplace hearth. The staff was down-to-earth, relaxed, engaging and very attentive.

I was surprised by how little access there is to the actual banks of the Rogue River - don't go expecting to be able to take long nature walks as the surrounding properties have 'do not trespass' signs up. However, if you can simply slow down your pace of life, take a book and have a seat by the river, enjoy the sound of the water and solitude, you might just look up and find a family of deer grazing lazily within a few dozen feet of you. Even in winter time, that Tu Tu Tun makes such a unique experience possible makes it a very unique place indeed.

We have stayed at TuTuTun twice, in 09 and 2010 and it is a beautiful, well designed place to stay when coming to Gold Beach. We come to this area to take a trip on the Rogue River, and also to go farther South, to see the Redwoods. TuTuTun is the prefect place to stay. The rooms are appointed perfectly from the woodburning fireplaces, to the comfy beds, to the bathrooms amenities. We usually sightsee until dark, so the only meal we have eaten here is the room service breakfast and it is fantastic....fresh fruit, bakery items, and wonderful granola. Our favorite things to do here are shake apples out of the tree for the deer, and sit out on the lawn, overlooking the Rogue.......serenity at its best. Be sure to see the flower and vegetable garden....just beautiful, and catch Jerry's Rogue Jet boats at the lodge dock for a fantastic trip up this wonderful river.

This was a truly first class accommodations. The moment we arrived, we were greeted by Terry on a first name basis. The room was fantastic; the view awesome. Our breakfast was to die for. The homemade granola was pout of this world, and the cinnamon rolls melted in your mouth. The room was comfortably furnished. I noticed extras like a safety light, and the decor of the room, My only complaints are that the wi-fi was spotty in the room. It was hard to receive a Skype call from our son in Thailand. The bed could have been more comfortable. I would suggest to the management that they go to the pillow top mattresses. Also, the comforter was way too heavy for this time of the year. The views are amazing, and the fireplace was a welcome sight after coming in from the rain. Will definitely come back, perhaps in the Fall.

We made our first off-season visits to this decades long favorite places. We usually stay here in summer and find it to be one of the best small hotels in North America.
In the summer it is wonderful in many ways, one of the highlights is some really excellent meals.
During the off season the dining room is closed so that makes it inconvenient to drive 12 miles round trip to town for dinner, especially a town so devoid of decent restaurants.
Breakfast is still available in winter, and it is one of the best breakfasts of any country inn.
They do offer wine and good appetizers in the evening, as they do in summer.
Rooms are wonderful and the raging Rogue River is spectacular to watch.
There is nothing like Tu Tu Tun.

One of the boxes to check in life is a trip down The Oregon Coast to Northern California via Highway 1.
When planning this trip, definatly make space for at least 1 night at the Tu Tu Tun Lodge.
It is not directly on the Pacific Ocean, but a few miles east on the Rogue River.
The rooms are all spacious & unique, furnished in a luxurious lodge style.
Definatly opt for the "family-style" dinner that they offer. It is excellent & the other guests that you will meet are always interesting & well-traveled.
The gardens & large pool are delightful.
If you have an opportunity for a room with a small outdoor tub, grab it. Looking out at the stars from this lodge is amazing.
We have stayed there three times (bringing other couples with us, twice) & we will all be back (us, this August).

Room Tip: Get a room with an outdoor tub, if one is available.
