- Finding one of the world’s largest known myrtle trees you would think would be fairly easy. Approximately 88 feet tall, 42 feet in circumference and its canopy is nearly 70 feet wide. It truly is unique as it grows only along the northern coast of California and southwestern Oregon. We were told by the lodge staff …
- The Shrader Old-Growth Trail, a one mile loop trail off Jerry’s Flat Road in Gold Beach. We might feel like we’re getting older, but we’re just youngsters among these old growth Douglas-fir, Port Orford cedar and tanoak trees. The Douglas fir may live as long as 1,000 years and many of them in this …
- Bandon Beach Loop Drive, south of Bandon. Driving south on Highway 101, just south of Florence, the drive loses sight of the coast. It’s not until Bandon that it appears again.

Historical Traveler Reviews Tu Tu Tun Lodge Gold Beach
We recently spent two nights at the Tu Tu'Tun Lodge, and mostly enjoyed it very much. What we loved: the grounds and rooms (we had a different room each night) are really lovely; the gardens are superb, the river view (from balcony, patio, terrace, lawn) is fantastic and peaceful, and the rooms are tastefully understated and extremely comfortable; and the staff is very kind and helpful.
Excellent Inn, unimpressive town!
A wonderful Inn! The meals are gourmet with excellent preparation and fresh produce. The rooms are quiet and lovely. We were had a small problem that the staff went out the their way to handle. Gold beach however is a dump. Do not make the mistake of dinning there and the shops are uninteresting. If fishing or quiet solitude is of interest, this is the place.
Peace, quiet and everything else
Tu Tu Tun is the nicest and most restful place you'll fined anywhere that is inhabited. I always feel "taken care of" and welcome whenever I go (which is as often as I can). The accommodations are great and the food is wonderful. Better than all is the river (and country around it), just watching it go by settles the soul. Rest, relax, eat and take a jet boat ride, you will not be disappointed.
A Great Place To Stay
We stayed at Tu Tu'Tun Lodge for 3 days during the Winter season and it was a wonderful experience. The river and setting was beautiful and very relaxing. Intend to stay there again.
We stayed over Christmas for 7 days in the garden cottage. It is somewhat charming, and I enjoyed having a kitchen, but there is nothing to do in the town and the restaurants are terrible. Also, the lodge is close to other properties and not so private.
A little slice of heaven
The Tu Tu Tun Lodge is right up there among the best places we've stayed. Even off season, with the dining room closed, we felt pampered and at home. Every detail is taken care of, and driving 10 minutes to town is not a big deal. We booked a suite with a kitchen, which was perfect. The staff is friendly and attends to your every need. When the dining room is closed the prices are quite reduced, but even at the higher prices this lodge has to be worth every penny. Treat yourself for a night or two -- you won't regret it!
Excellent food and ambience
This is an extremely pleasant lodge, offering outstanding, creative and interesting, food for both breakfast and dinner. All meals are served at 8-person communal tables, like in a bed and breakfast. Food is extra, with a set price for brkfst + dinner + cocktail snacks + afternoon snacks per person. This deal is well worth it, a bargain for what you get. The rooms face the scenic Rogue River, and are spacious and elegant, especially for a place that claims to be a fishing lodge.
It is on the high end pricewise, but you won't find this sort of classy place much cheaper anywhere. Worth the price for those who appreciate this sort of quality. Makes many lists of the top small hotels in North America, and deservedly so.
The best place on earth
Tu Tu Tun lodge is heaven on earth! The river offered excellent recreation reaching 85 degrees F. The swimming was complimented by a refreshing dip in the beautiful turquoise pool wonderfully lit by the nights sky full of beautiful stars! The stars, they are wonderful they automatically render your soul to solitude. Tu Tu Tun was the best decision i have ever made in travel, period. no place is better and no people are more down to earth and at your every call, for anything. They try their hardest and surpass every nessesity for luxury. Trust Tu Tu Tun. Beacuse they trust you.
A special place
We stayed at Tu Tu Tun 2 years ago and just booked to go back. The setting is wonderful and rooms (each with a small deck or patio facing the Roigue River) are quite nice. What is really nice is the personal attention of the owners, and the other interesting people you meet.
Dinners, (not included) preceded by a cocktail hour are at large tables with your seat assigned according to the instincts of your hosts. The food is excellent.
Deer stroll the grounds in the evening. On the negative side, the pool is small and nothing special, and rates are quite pricey.
I can't imagine what all the hoopla is about. This place is remote from Gold Beach and not a fast or easy drive. It's not a resort but a small, charming inn with other room and property owners close by. There's a standard rectangular pool fronting the river but the river is cold and rocky and no one tried to swim. The dining room does not serve lunch (unless by special request in advance) and at dinner there is only one entrée althought the food is pretty good. The room rates have jumped enormously. In June 2003, the cheapest rate I could get was $250 per night and there's no way this place justified that price, particularly when that price doesn't include the food. There are several B&Bs right on the ocean – new, comfortable and charming and large – for $95 per night. I posted a message on Fodor's asking about why Tu Tu Tun was special and two people agreed that it wasn't. Go elsewhere because this place is over-hyped and overpriced.
