I'm sitting in the room right now, with the wireless internet working for the first time since we've been here. Way overpriced. Tiny beds. Tiny rooms. Not a single available parking space last night in the rain. Next time we'll make sure book in advance enough to get a room at the Helgeson before it fills up.

My husband and I stayed in one of the suites of this Lodge for our 25th anniversary. What a beautiful setting. You would never expect to find such an oasis of luxury tucked away in the valley of this small timbered community. You can watch the river as it meanders by just a few feet beneath the balcony of your room. You can also watch and hear water as it bubbles up through the rock fountain on the patio below. Once inside, you will feel the call to start the fire blazing in the fireplace and then sink into the hot tub that overlooks the river. When you get tired of watching the river you can turn on one of the flat-screen televisions, (there are 2, one in the main living room and one in the bathroom) or just curl up in one of the oversize chairs and read that book you've been dying to read. Whatever the activity you choose, you will find this lodging to be the utmost in comfort, take my word for it.

Orofino is located just off US 12- part of the Lolo Pass highway ( if you are a Lewis and Clark buff you will recognize "Lolo".) We were doing the Lewis
and ClarK Trail in reverse ( started at the Pacific and went East ). There's not much to see or do in Orofino, but the Lodge is a GREAT place to
stop

The lodge ( opened in April this year ) is located just off Highway 12 right on the Clearwater River. The rooms facing the river have a nice
size deck overlooking the river about 20 feet away. We sat out on the deck drinking wine (cheap) and eating our "take out supper' ( also cheap)
and felt like millionaires . Our room with King Size bed with the river
view was $80 !! ( and the river is crystal clear)

There are several local restaurants ( one right behind the Lodge ) and
and several local gas stations and grovery stores.

Either this place will fold from lack of business,or the prices will escalate. Go soon before either happens. I'd think twice about going later than October. They have some really big snows in this area ( as Lewis and Clark discovered)

Wow! This was one of the nicest BW's we've stayed at in our many northwest travels. Completed in 2005, the lodge has that fresh, new feeling that feels so nice to encounter at the end of a long day. There's a lovely patio overlooking the river to watch the sunset from. The rooms are spotless and comfortable. The staff is friendly and professional. The breakfast was deluxe with scrambled eggs, fruit and waffles along with all the regular fare. Lastly, our rate was extremely reasonable for the quality of the accomodations. All in all, a great place to spend a night.
