My wife and I were driving up the coast from California to Washington and needed a place to stay somewhere around Gold Beach. Trip Advisor recommendations were off the charts about this place so we called and the last room available. We arrived on a sunny October fall evening. Check-in was like meeting old friends. Jocelyn made us feel at home immediately and acquainted us with this rather small intimate lodge on the Rogue River. The room was small, but cozy and every thing was very tastefully done. We had a glass of wine on the balcony and admired the sun on the river and turning of the leaves in the forest beyond. Our walk on the well tended grounds and garden was delightful, the black cat with white socks joined our tour. There is an orchard and several hole golf chip and putt course on the road side and a dock at the riverside. The Pool and terraces looked very inviting though we didn't have time before dinner to take a dip. Appetizers are served in the living room of the lodge with Kyle (the owner) and Jocelyn as hosts behind the well stocked bar. Wine tasting and mingling with the other guests while appetizers are served is a nice way to meet your soon to be dinner partners. Dinner in the adjacent dining room was a smoked rib eye steak with roasted vegetables and Yorkshire pudding after a homemade soup. The whole experience was intoxicating. The selection of the dinner partners was very carefully done as you have 8 at a round table. We enjoyed getting to know the other guests and had a lively discussion while we enjoyed the spectacular dinner and setting.
Morning coffee and orange juice is delivered to the room with a Kindle loaded with the Oregonian. At turndown you get a pint milk bottle of the local creek water which was sweet and delicious. Breakfast was also a group affair and equally as enjoyable. We were sorry our stay was only one night. We will be back!
