Unfriendly and not wanted.
While on a rafting trip with 3 other couples (Aug 21, 2022)we decided to stop in at the lodge to see if we wanted to book a night for our next trip down the river. We had stopped three years ago and thought maybe things may be better from our experience then. When we got up to the deck of course the couples that had not been there were very impressed with the view and the accommodations that the lodge had to offer, we quickly learned that we were not wanted EVEN MORE THIS TIME. When we walked into the lodge the lady behind the counter looked at us and had no words. One friend asked if they could buy a drink and was told no but they would sell us a 6 pack of beer that would be to go only and we would have to leave to drink it. Couldn't even get a glass of water. There was no hi, how are you or I am sorry but we only have services for guests, NOTHING. SO RUDE and COLD. So we went outside to look at the property. As we were just about to leave, two of us had to use the facilities. One went in with no issues but the second was stopped and told they were for paying guests only. So she said ok. Her husband was floored at how all of us were treated and said to the two men outside working that they had the worst customer service he had ever experienced. The worker said he had no idea what he was talking about. He knew exactly what he was talking about. It is like the only qualification to work there is: can you be rude, cold and unfriendly? Then yes, you are hired. I guess this place doesn't need the money from willing visitors who would have probably spent a few $100's for an hour there. If they do not want the "General Public" to come up from the river they should have signs posted. That would have detoured us 100%. Reading the reviews from over the last several years I can not believe there aren't more BAD reviews for this place. If I could have given them Zero Stars I would have. We will never return or give this place a recommendation ever. Even guest reviews that had stayed said poor things about them. The owner of this place must not read these reviews or care for that matter. They should be ashamed of themselves and the staff. This place could be an oasis for those in need of just a little comfort and friendly smile. NOT happening with the owner or staff. DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME OR MONEY HERE.
Oregon's Beauty Revealed at Paradise Lodge
My boyfriend and I went to Paradise Lodge to enjoy nature together and we had such a wonderful experience here, I highly recommend!! The trip begins with Jerry's Jet Boat ride up the Rogue river. The view going up the river was absolutely beautiful, the nature is green and lush. Once we arrived to Paradise Lodge we were in love with the cabins surrounded by nature and no internet!! Yes its such a wonderful feeling being able to sleep in a comfortable bed, take a warm shower, and watch the river and NOT be distracted by cell phones and computers. I loved walking the trails to the main lodge to eat breakfast, lunch, and dinner and then coming back to our beautiful cabin with clean sheets, clean bathroom and towels and electricity to blow dry my hair. Its everything I love about camping but better!! One of the days we stayed we walked about half a mile up the river and then floated down the river on life preservers to the lodge, we loved it! I loved that we could spend time together as a couple, I felt it was a wonderful new experience we got to share together, its very romantic and fun and yet peaceful. Listening to the river never gets old, its calming and renewing. We absolutely will be returning!
I really loved our week at Paradise Lodge, my girlfriend and I decided to make the trip by Jet boat from Gold Beach up the Rouge River and stay at the lodge. We really weren't sure what we were in for. The jet boat ride up was exciting and the scenery was incredible. The Jet boat driver was a lot of fun and seemed to really enjoy his job. When we got to the lodge it was everything we could have hoped for,incredible cabin style rooms ,really sweet employees everyone was so kind ,you could tell they take a lot of pride in being part of such a unique place.The rooms were clean and the food was great. We floated the river, swam in a little pool that a nearby creek flows into . relaxed,ate well and really loved it. For me I think my favorite thing was the stars at night. Absolutely no light pollution,Ive only seen stars so clear in the middle of Baja Mexico. It was amazing. We can't wait to go back.
Amazing and Unique Paradise Lodge on the Rogue River
Arrived Paradise Lodge by Jerry’s Rogue Jets boat. The ride up the river was an exceptional experience, to the beautiful remote and tranquil setting of this amazing gem on the Rogue River. During our stay at the lodge, we were thrilled by an exceptional outdoor concert by Jeff Pevar and his band on the deck overlooking the majestic Rogue River! I was so impressed by the Lodge’s accommodations, staff, food and hospitality. Given the remoteness of this lodge and logistics to bring in supplies, the staff clearly excelled in accommodating each guest individual needs! I am so excited to return next season and would highly recommend this unique adventure. The best part is that each guest gets to determine what level of adventure they are looking for….quiet walks in the pastures, hiking trails, hiking in the mountains, floating down the river in your life jacket, listening to beautiful music, or just taking in the breath taking wildlife including deer, eagles, hawks, that are all living on the property!
Our recent visit to Paradise Lodge
Our Paradise Lodge experience. My gal and I spent a weekend at the paradise resort May 22&23. I'm here to inform all, this place is awesome!! Right on the mighty Rogue river, beautiful spot just below blossom bar. We took the 104mile jetboat trip, but you can helicopter in, or you can hike in. No roads, no phones, no TV, No noise, no wifi, no distractions, just the sweet sounds of the river to soothe and rehab the soul. Now one might think the included food would also be primitive, well guess again!! Now understand I am a certified chef. I studied under the head chef of the Jolly Roger chain. I've bought and sold 15 restaurants, so I know food. I've been to Club Med, every resort town in Mexico, 7 cruise ship trips, traveled both coasts in USA, so I know food. I know world class cuisine ! Now let me introduce you to one of the mgr's and head chef at Paradise. His name is Jay. And he is the host with the most and a darn good chef. But in addition he is so helpful with all aspects of this gorgeous property. All while being a very nice man. His food is excellent (included), and quite plentiful. I gained 3 lbs. lol. He really puts on a fully satisfying balance menu. And a great baked dessert. His presentation is second to none. His care to detail is quite obvious. You come away satisfied every meal 3 per day. My gal and I are both foodies, and Jay offers a dining exp. I know everyone will enjoy to the max. I'm not related in any way, not the lodge or it's wonderful serving staff. I felt compelled to write this because tipping only goes so far. Although you will want to. I've been to the lodge 10 years ago. Since then they have remodeled the all wood interiors of the rooms. As well as new improved decking, and a dining tent so you can sit outside and dine in any weather. They have thought of everything. They offer beer, wine, and cocktails!! (not included shucks). So in closing let me just say perfect location, food, and service, 52mi. up the Rogue from Gold Beach Or.(ocean) We saw bald eagles, black bears with new cubs, great blue herons, osprey, sea lions, ducks, geese, well too many sightings to list. Truly magical. Thanks Jay, we will be back soon. Patrick Price and Princess GidgieEmojiEmoji
