The Tu Tu Tun is located on the Rogue River approximately 5 miles in from the coast and Gold Beach, Oregon. Signage on 101 and the lodge's own website provide excellent directions to it. It was recommended to us by a friend of my wife who has been bringing her family here from California for over 30 years! The setting is gorgeous and peaceful. The rooms (we were in 201, I believe) are very luxurious, with fireplaces and balconies (in our case) or patios (downstairs), and at least one apparently also has a hot tub. The people at the lodge are uniformly INCREDIBLE! Everyone is very nice, and certainly make you feel taken care of, as other reviewers have noted. A good breakfast of eggs cooked to order or a daily special is included, as are a three- or four-course dinner. They are served at "family" style tables of six or eight people, and so if that isn't your thing, you shouldn't stay here. It's not my thing either, normally, and I was quite bored the first night of our stay, but the second night was a lot of fun with new people, whom we saw again for breakfast the next day. The lodge offers kayaking and other lodge-type sports. The Tu Tu Tun is a real find, and I hope we have another chance to stay at it.
