The Minam River Lodge is a hike-in, fly-in Lodge in the middle of Northeast Oregon's Eagle Cap Wilderness. Accessible by 8.5-mile hike or charter flight in a small plane, the Lodge is a triumph of craftsmanship and runs on solar power. Other accommodations include hand-built log cabins, wall tents and teepees. Guests enjoy fine wilderness dining from the Lodge's garden and provisions flown in from small local farms, as well as regional wines and specialty cocktails. The wild and scenic Minam River flows through the property and offers a peaceful place to read, relax or watch nature. Guests also can explore scenic day or overnight hikes from the Lodge, ride horseback or cast a line in the river, which is considered nearly pristine. The Lodge can be reached in a day from Portland, Ore.; Boise; or Walla Walla, Wash. Management arranges charter flights for $125 each way from nearby towns including Enterprise. Hiking or riding horseback from nearby Moss Cove Campground takes about 4 hours.

The Minam River Lodge is sooooo fabulous, I want to scream it at the top of my lungs at every corner. :-) This place is low density, digital detox, glamour/lux at its best, and all in the middle of Oregon. You can hike in and out, but we flew from La Grande. Once you get there, there is a ton to do. There are many hikes available, books to read, outdoor yoga daily, an outdoor wood fired hot water tub, and then there is THE FOOD!!! Sean Temple and team whip up amazingly fresh, high quality, and sophisticated food in an open kitchen, the heart of the lodge, with the help of the Beast, a massive bbq. Beef from Snake River Farms, Hutterite Pork (which changed my life, it was so tender), and fresh popcorn and homemade cookies in the early afternoons, all of these yummy things and more. Vegetarians are also in heaven with the amazing produce and care that the team puts in preparing their meals. Of course, the lodge has a great array of Oregon wines. To the team PLEASE KEEP IT UP, this place is truly magical.

The setting is beautiful, the lodge and cabins are lovely, and the staff is on point. I loved unplugging here. The food was 5 stars, it has been a long time for me since a cheff knocks it out of the park, but he did it every night we stayed.

I simply cannot say enough about the caliber of place the Minam River Lodge is. The booking, flying, hiking, accommodations, and FOOD were beyond our highest expectations. The staff was incredibly attentive and we felt like royalty. Foodie? This is the place for you. Meals are prepared with the day's garden harvest and thoughtfully presented by the chef with each course. Wine pairings, cocktails, you name it. Fresh baked cookies in the afternoon and a consistent nod to the local source which all ingredients were bought. The facilities keep you comfortable while you truly unplug from the world you left behind. Stay here and you will not be disappointed!

We’d heard rave reviews about the Minam River Lodge from several friends, so we decided to spend two nights there with our family of eight. Three of us flew in, the rest came in on horseback. Everyone in our family loves our time there. First off, the location in the middle of the wilderness is what sets it apart. Incredibly beautiful. The lodge has all the comforts one could ask for . . . incredibly comfortable beds, fireplaces, cozy seating, hot tub, sauna, massage, etc. The staff is fun, attentive, and helpful. The food is amazing. We loved how the main lodge is arranged such that there are two focal points - the awe inspiring view of the meadow, river, and towering ridge, and the open kitchen. You can watch the amazing chefs preparing the most wonderful meals you’ve ever eaten. And the dining area is arranged to provide the opportunity to meet other guests or dine in relative privacy. Very well done. Our two recent newlywed daughters and their husbands stayed in two adjoining cabins, while my wife and I, along with our sons, stayed in the Eagle Cap room, which I’d highly recommend. The room has a wall of windows with the same view as the dining room below. The bed was in the middle of the room directly facing the windows. There was a copper soaking tub, as well as a beautiful shower. On top of this, I must add that it rained during most of our stay . . . I can’t wait to return when the weather is sunny and more conducive to exploring the trails. Thank you Barnes Ellis for your vision and providing this gem for us to enjoy.

Stayed 3 nights July 10th through 13th, as this was our first time, we didn't want to cut it too short. We should have definitely planned another night as we were not ready to leave. The staff is amazing, friendly and more like family than staying at a typical resort. We stayed in a Lodge Room and enjoyed the easy up down from the restaurant/patio. Sharing the shower/restroom (separated) was a non-issue. Chef Sean and Suzanne had us looking forward to every meal and it was fantastic! Good selection of wine and custom cocktails, as well. We did take a dip in the wood-fired hot tub and it was great! We did morning yoga, fished the river and hiked to Red's Horse Ranch. If we had more time we would have taken advantage of a massage and a horse back ride. We did the hike in both directions and it wasn't too bad. The hike out takes some work at the end, but well worth the adventure! We will definitely be back and are planning on bringing friends to experience this wonderful place!
