The Tu Tu' Tun Lodge, on the Rogue River, provides a most enjoyable, relaxing respite. Comfortable rooms and public areas with great views of river and mountains. The staff provides first-rate service. While there are a number of activities available such as hiking, kayaking and fishing, my wife and I enjoyed sitting by the river reading and listening to the sounds of the river.
The Lodge provides a modified meal plan that includes evening hors d'oeuvre with a single-seating dinner and breakfast. The dinner menu is predetermined and known in the morning so you can decide if you want to dine at the Lodge or in town. Our first night at the Lodge, we chose to have dinner in our room (an extra $15/person charge). The menu was the same as served in the dining room that night but set up and served in our room - with candlelight. Hors d'oeuvres, soup, salad, entree (pork loin this particular night) and cheesecake for dessert. Well prepared and excellent service. Breakfast includes a small buffet of fresh fruit, granola, yogurt and coffee cake as well as a couple of breakfast specials such as a crab omelette or french toast. I should mention that the dining room is set up with four large tables of 8 and everyone is seated as they arrive. It does provide an opportunity to meet new people but this isn't for everyone. Also, there is no TV and reception for cell phones is poor - this is not necessarily a bad thing.
The Lodge is not inexpensive - rooms run from $210 to $360 a night (summer rates), suites are more. The modified meal plan is $67.50 per person. However, the accommodations, service and the river make it well worth the expense.
