A sweet place that has seen better days
After a day on the river is was wonderful to head to shore. The climb up to the drive was challenging but doable. The meadow in front of the lodge was full of deer calmly munching grass and with no fear of people. I enjoy rustic and the limited generator time was not an issue, not was the single light on the bedroom ceiling. What were issues were the sagging full size mattress--no way two people could sleep comfortably and after a day on the river a good night's rest is very important. There was no outdoor seating that was not rotting or moldy so we stood around, sat on steps to the cabin or on a rock. I really think a few outdoor benches or a new picnic table would help and honestly each cabin side should have an outdoor chair--the single indoor folding chair could be added so two could sit on the porch. I was wary of the ample food because two of the creamer cups I opened had totally congealed. The people who ran and worked the lodge were great--hospitable and fun folk, but the lodge really seems on the decline. I was part of a tour so I don't know what the fees were for this stay but I would not go back to Black bar.
Summer rafting trip
Amazing location on the Rogue river. The facility was quite rustic yet extremely comfortable. The food and service was excellent. The use of the Jeep for our gear transport from the river to the lodge was so helpful.
First night off River
This was a site for sore eyes since we all thought that it would be a little more primitive, but it was great. Even though its not the newest or have the best of everything, it was a place to take a shower and sleep in a bed. The guides cooked us a wonderful dinner while we first enjoyed cocktails and appetizers. Dinner was excellent and back to a bed until lights off @ 10 pm. Thank you for keeping the cabins clean and enough blankets to keep you warm even though they have gas wall heaters. You have to realize you are out in the middle of the woods off the river and so you have to walk up the hill to get to it. Thank you for a great time while we headed down the river to our next destination. Keep up the remodels!
What are your priorities?
The good: main lodge is rustic and charming; they serve lots of food; the location cannot be beat. The so-so: the quality of food is OK; minimal power so don't expect to charge all your electronics; cabins are very bare-bones The bad: our bed was so bad we dragged the mattress onto the floor and it was still very uncomfortable. The bed should have been thrown away about 10 years ago.
Beautiful, remote location
I spent one night at this lodge while on a guided river rafting trip. The location is very isolated and cannot be seen from the river. The staff members we met (all ladies) were warm and friendly. An ample meal was provided for dinner and breakfast and was served family style. The cabins are rustic as one would expect. There are flush toilets and a hot shower in the cabins. There is just a curtain separating bathroom area from rest of cabin so don't expect a lot of privacy. There is no air conditioner and the cabin was a bit hot in the early evening. The roms run on generators and there are no outlets for plugging in anything. Overall, beautiful location, hot shower and plenty of food. We did not encounter the "owner" cited in several earlier reviews so have nothing to add on that topic. The staff we did meet were friendly.
