This historic lodge & 4 cabins were built in 1910 on the best fishing hole on the Rogue River. The cabins are now vacation homes & rarely occupied. There is nothing like this lodge, it has been modernized with insulation, new windows, central heating & air. It is surrounded by undeveloped land, there is total quiet privacy. The only sounds are from the river, Canada Geese & a pair of Great Horned Owls that nest in the woods. It is a mile from the paved road through a electric security gate.
RUSHING RIVER says it all, the lodge has something for everyone. The main lodge is located at the beginning of "salmon alley". There is some kind of fishing all year round; salmon, steelhead or trout. Walk out on the main deck & there's the river.
FAMILIES love the space with wading on this side of the river and fishing on the other. There are beds for 6 persons to sleep alone and if there are couples there is room for 10. There is also a fully equipped studio cottage near by at extra cost that has a queen bed, for grand parents maybe.
OUTDOORS there is a huge deck with tables, chairs & extra folding tables to accommodate a large gathering. Even a lawn swing from the 1920's.There is a fenced dog yard on one side & lots of room for fido to safely roam around the park like acreage chasing the squirrels.
INSIDE THE LODGE there is a fully equipped kitchen with a corner breakfast nook with a wide view of the river. A 8' dining table to seat the whole family.The living room has lots of seating where you can relax after a fun day & watch a wide screen TV with a internet connection for Netflix & Utube. There is even a authentic Grizzly Bear wall mount that has been there for generations.
UNIQUE SPACE, you'll be amazed the property, its the most serene, magical places you'll want to invite all your friends to come visit you to share the experience. There are fishing poles to use and blackberry buckets in season.
GUEST ACCESS; There is lots of adjacent acreage too walk around, while the other cabins are usually empty, respect their space when you're out browsing about if you see cars there.
INTERACTION WITH GUESTS: Dick & Patty live in San Diego, but have kids & grandkids in the Rogue Valley; two are general contractors and only minutes away. If there is an emergency you can call them for ASAP issues or Dick & Patty for general questions.
THE NEIGHBORHOOD: The lodge is isolated, down a power-gated, one mile long gravel driveway, but Walmart is only 12 minutes away. Going north on hwy 234 Rainey Corner is 1 1/2 miles away with gas station, country grocery, cafe & a feed & grain store. EAGLE POINT is the nearest community with the Walmart, Carls Junior, numerous other eating & shopping possibilities. there is a welcome book in the lodge that describes all the interesting places & things to do in the valley; from Crater Lake, Shakespearean Theater, Brit music festival, historic Jacksonville, Oregon Caves, wine tasting, river rafting, fishing guides etc. etc.
TRANSPORTATION is limited to your vehicle, there is no other possibility except Uber or some other taxi service. Medford & the airport are 30 minutes away.
OTHER THING TO NOTE : the cottage adjacent to the lodge may be occupied at the same time as the lodge, but it has its own deck space and is off to the side, out of view from the lodge deck and windows. Though someone might be down at the river fishing at the same time. A NOTE ABOUT PETS..while we do allow pets, we have had to add a cleaning fee of $100 to the $200 cleaning fee on the website. most dogs shed a lot on the carpet and the cleaners have to spend extra time dealing with that... additionally if there is dog hair all over the furniture & beds there will be an additional charge for that. (We had to throw away a blanket that was so full of hair that it couldn't be cleaned). Kenneling pets is expensive and bring them along is way more fun, we just need to balance the expenses so that every body is happy. thanks for understanding
WEDDINGS & LARGE GROUPS: we've had a number of inquiries about this; there isn't enough parking & the septic system isn't designed for this type of use, so the maximum number of guests is limited to 10.
