I have always heard about Tu Tu Tun lodge and finally managed to plan a trip that included this somewhat remote property. Everything about it feels so special because they make you feel like an old friend who just arrived; happy to see us, going out of their way to please. The young owner Kyle is on hand to greet you and makes certain he knows your name from the get-go. The lodge is understated luxury all the way, but it's the little touches that make it special; flowers handpicked from the garden for the evening's dinner and hors d'ouevres, an array of fabulous Oregon wines on hand, spring water at your bedside from local sources, beautiful native flowerbeds bursting with color. This is a very small property so you get to know folks during the day and eat dinner together at night. We met people from all over the US who were all traveling onward so the exchange of travel information gleaned from eating dinner together was fun - most were foodies similar to us.
We did take a jet boat ride from Jerry's and it was perfect - the temps were in the 90's that day so water sprays were appreciated. A lot of the river was shaded so it was very pleasant and wildlife was spotted all around. We were picked up directly from the Lodge's dock. We only wish we had more time here - it is truly a place to relax...no TVs, so just the views and the hot tubs at night. Lovely! We will be back.
