I've been to BBL a couple of times, but this last trip was so great I wanted to write a review. I went with a 7 other families. Between us we had kids ranging from 9 months to 8 years old. It is a perfect place to go with young kids. The beach has a perfect shallow area for all... More

I spent two nights last August with my friends' wedding party (about 18 of us in all, I believe) at Big Bend Lodge. I can't imagine a more enjoyable way to celebrate my friends' marriage and relax after the ceremony. First off, the drive to Big Bend was gorgeous: we passed through vineyards and redwoods on the way to the... More

My family and I have been going to BBL for 3 years now and it's magic only gets better every year. It's charming and simple on an absolutely gorgeous part of the Eel river. After a day of unwinding, swinging in the hammock, swimming in the river, and resting by the campfire at night, I have completely surrendered to the... More

This was my first visit to Big Bend Lodge. Three friends and I, with our lab, shared cabin 9, which is one of the two that allows dogs. The property is being updated with simple, stylish charm. The place is something special to the new owners, so they are intent on bringing back the original charm to this magical site.... More

We stayed here in the middle of January for two nights while on a family road trip. The grounds were nice, the care taker was friendly and helpful but there were a few issues. We knew that it was rural, that there was no television or internet, our cell phones probably wouldn't work and the closest store was an hour... More

This is a basic motel/camp with a great spot, good fun and easy going pace. Don't expect to be a modern traveler here. No TV and no cell phone, those are features. Stayed two nights on a cold weekend in mid-January. What a great place. It is basic but very clean. They have fireplaces in the cabins, plus heat and... More

I say "camping" because you feel like you are camping, but it is SOOO much better. The cabins make the experience perfect! The grounds are great, surrounding nature is amazing, floating all day on the river....need I say more. Highly recommended. I am already planning for the next trip.

Boy am I happy that Big Bend is BACK! My husband and I spent a night there recently and were thrilled to meet the new managers, John and Joy, and to hear all about the new owners and their plans. Take everything the last few reviewers have said and double it, and please, take my word for it, there is... More

The new owners have really made this place shine. The cabins are comfortable and have all you need. The kitchen is fully stocked, each cabin has it's own grill and the place overflows with charm. We traveled up with our extended family and our dogs and had a most wonderful time. The lodge offers inter-tubes to float on the river... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Summer like it used to be. Big Bend Lodge is a small 1940’s resort that sits on an idyl­lic and com­pletely pri­vate sec­tion of the South Fork of the Eel River in Northern Men­do­cino County. We have nine rustic cabins with full kitchens that can accommodate 4 to 5 people each and some of our cabins are dog friendly. A well-kept secret amongst California families and groups who've been coming to the lodge for decades, Big Bend Lodge strives to maintain the relaxed and friendly atmosphere of days gone by when the perfect vacation was floating on a river all day and then telling stories around a campfire at night. A wonderful place for children, Big Bend Lodge is also a perfect place for a group of adults to book for a completely private and relaxed get-away.*Under new ownership by six families who have been coming to the lodge for years.* ... more   less
