The lodge is located in the rural southwest corner of Oregon, situated on a wooded stretch of the engaging Rogue River and just 7 miles from the Pacific Ocean. All our rooms, named after places on the Rogue, offer an uncommon blend of “deep down” comfort surrounded by nature. They share an expansive, soothing view of the river.

A Hidden Gem in Oregon!
Tu Tu Tun is not a resort, it's a lodge. We were welcomed in. They treat you like family. This is a place you can disconnect from the world if you want. It's a quiet place to relax and chill out. Do activities or do nothing at all. Your choice! They do have WiFi. We have Sprint and our phones worked ok. There are no TVs or radios in the rooms. There is an "in-house" phone in the main lodge, along with a community TV. There are horseshoes, Bocci Ball and a putt on the green on the grounds. The grounds are beautiful with green grass and an abundance of flowers around the lodge. The cut flowers around the lodge are from the grounds around the lodge. We saw deer around the lodge almost every night we stayed there. There are kayaks and paddleboards for the guests to use. They are first come first serve. There is also a pool there. I can't remember if it's heated or not, I believe it is. Breakfast & Dinner you pay extra for. You can choose to not do the meal plan but I didn't want to leave the lodge after I arrived. For breakfast there were always two things always on the menu: Bacon, eggs and potatoes and Oatmeal. There was one rotating item that was always something different every morning. For example, one morning it was Avocado Toast, which was absolutely delicious! Hor'doeures were always served before dinner at a certain time. At that time wine, beer or mixed drinks were also served. For dinner it was served family style. They sat us at the table, you don't get to choose. It's all about meeting new people and getting to know new people. Dinner was whatever the chef wanted. One night we had a choice of quail or cod. My husband and I both chose Quail because we had never had it before. All the meals here were wonderful but we are not picky eaters. I can not say enough about this place. Before we left, we booked our stay for next year. As for the price, it was about $500 a night for us to stay here. And it's worth every penny! We can not WAIT to return next year! And I highly recommend you do the Jet Boat Ride up the Rogue River. We did the 104 mile ride which was all day. Had the best time. Ask them at the front desk and they will help you and get it all set up!
Perfect Wedding Anniversary Lodge
A perfect special occasion Lodge. The owner ,Kyle, works the hotel and restaurant personally assuring complete guest satisfaction. Upon check-in Michael took us on a personal tour of the property showing us the heated lap pool, the outdoor lounge chairs to view the river, the garden where Chef gets his vegetables, the library, bar, dining room and more. At first I thought Michael was the owner as he took ownership in our experience. Dinner is pre-fix by reservation with one seating. Cocktails at 6:15 followed by dinner at 7:00 pm. The Kyle and staff called us by our names after meeting us only once.! Remarkable! Superb food served family style as we were seated at a table for 8 so as to meet other guests. We will return!
We had only one week for vacay this year - my husband and I (nearing 60!) and our son and his friend (nearing 21!) all needed a real getaway to unwind and relax. We chose Tu Tu Tun and it was absolutely perfect. All the natural beauty in this area totally reset our overworked, overstudied minds. Tu Tu Tun staff and surroundings immediately put us in vacation mode and we stayed there throughout the trip. This is like a vacation from long ago where everything you need is right there. We took advantage of the kayaks, the pool, the soaking tub on our balcony and the fireplace in our room. The beds are sublime - magnificently comfortable. The room has everything you need to be comfortable - no detail is missed. If you like they bring you a lovely coffee, juice and newspaper tray each a.m. so you can have coffee while you are still in your jammies. We enjoyed ours on the balcony with a view of the river. The staff do everything for you -from setting up jet boat tours (they pick up right at the Tu Tu Tun dock) to advising where to hike. Meals? Tu Tu Tun has you covered in style. Breakfast starts with coffee and and a sideboard with yogurt, granola (house made, to die for) and fresh fruit. Then you can order the special breakfast of the day (Swedish pancakes! Pork loin eggs Benedict!), oatmeal, or bacon, sausage eggs and more. I'm gluten free (sadly) and Tu Tu Tun took fabulous care of me. Dinner? Do Not Miss It! There is a cocktail hour from around 6-7. Drinks are added to your bill and wonderful appetizers are on the house. At 7, guests are seated with other guests at round tables for 10 that are perfect for conversations. We met people from Boston, New Jersey, So Cal, Nor Cal, Russia and more. We are not overly social folks, so we weren't sure we would like this, but it was a blast! The Chef is talented and each night's meal was fabulous - soup to start (I'm currently begging for the carrot, curry, ginger soup recipe) salad with local greens and cheeses, and main courses served family style on the lazy Susan. There are many great places to eat in the area, but we stayed at the lodge because the total experience from cocktails through dessert and coffee was just too good to miss. We are avid traveler's and rarely return to a place because we're excited to explore new places. But Tu Tu Tun totally won us over - we will be back to this wonderful, friendly, comfortable, happy place. Service, accommodations, locale and dining are truly superlative.
This unique property is very special. All of the details are handled by a magnificent staff and owner. Food was outstanding but most important was the care and joy that all involved take to make sure you stay is extra special. Can’t wait to come back.
Exceptional place !
We are a family from the UK travelling around California and Oregon. This place is exceptional and one of the few wow properties in the US where we have visited for over 30 years. The location is the star attraction - situated on the rogue river we loved waking up to that view every morning it was so uplifting (and we have just come via mount Shasta and crater lake, both places have amazing views). The staff at the lodge couldn’t be faulted in terms of service we were very impressed. The rooms are well appointed plus the beds are heavenly we slept so well. Before arrival we did have concerns about the evening dining arrangements as when on vacation we don’t generally want to make small talk with strangers it’s too much hard work. On our three nights here we had one evening where our fellow table guests were fun, one evening where they were dull and it was hard work then one night we elected to have dinner in the cabana by the river which was magical. Go for that if they have availability. Other highlights included the tame deer, kayaking on the river and the horseshoe pit ! Overall we thought this place was amazing and certainly better than the website photos suggest. Come here you won’t regret it !
