This Month's Testimonial: "Worth Every Penny"
Featuring: Tu Tu' Tun Lodge in Gold Beach, OR
“Extraordinary high end retreat in the Oregon backwoods 8 miles from the coast. Situated directly on the Rogue River, the views & gorgeously landscaped property make for an idyllic setting. The rooms are comfortably decorated & all have patio overlooking the grounds & river.
The customer service is without compare. You are welcomed by name & the name is somehow remembered throughout your stay by all the staff. You really have no choice but to dine on the property. That's part of the appeal. Cocktails & hor'dourves precede a sit down & family style in-house chef prepared dinner.” - Jon
