VIEW ALL ROOMS
With 8 rooms, 5 in the main lodge and 3 in our detached “Forest House”, we are the perfect place to get away, relax and commune with nature. The Lodge has over 400 feet of river frontage and 5 acres of gardens with numerous areas to rest and relax. All rooms are set up to house only 2 people, with one room (Damselfly) able to host up to 4 people (with 2 queen beds in 2 bedrooms). If you have more than 2 people (unless one is an infant under a year of age), you must book the Damselfly room. We have one room that can accommodate ADA guests (Caddisfly) – see further information below.
Relax in the jetted tubs of Mayfly or Songbird; have a glass of wine in front of the fireplace in Dragonfly or Songbird; or just sit on one of our outside decks while communing with nature!
Amenities include: Complimentary Wi-Fi, small refrigerator, microwave and coffee maker and coffee packets, robes and luxury toiletries.
All stays include a full cooked to order breakfast each morning and a complimentary glass of wine and snack in the afternoon. We also offer the option of dinner with a private chef in the evening (extra charge). Please contact us for more details about the Chef’s dinner.
ADA ROOM – Caddisfly
While our Lodge was built before ADA requirements were in place (in 1946 – with the last major room addition in 1979), we do have one room that may be suitable for people with physical disabilities – the Caddisfly Room. The Caddisfly Room is on the ground floor and has extra wide doors (for wheelchair access). The bathroom is equipped with grip bars and has a roll-in shower with hand-held shower head. The room has one queen bed and is our smallest room. It is easily accessible from the parking area. Guests also have use of a wooden ramp to the main lodge to make it easy to get into the Lodge for breakfast. The only wheelchair accessible bathroom is in the Caddisfly Room. Depending on the nature of your disability, other rooms may also be suitable (ground floor, but no wheelchair access). Please call us at 541-822-3630 to discuss further.
Fur buddies (dogs only) are only allowed in rooms in the Forest House (Songbird, Mayfly and Caddisfly) There is an additional charge of $25 per dog per stay (no more than 2 dogs allowed in a room). Bookings for dogs must be made via phone (not online). Rules for dogs include: must be on a leash at all times on the property; no excessive barking/disturbing other guests, no wet dogs in rooms, no dogs on beds, no dogs in or around the main lodge building; dogs may not be left alone in rooms (you can put them in your car while dining – or you can bring a crate and they can be in there while you are dining). If you have questions about your fur buddy, feel free to give us a call. Additional charges will be added to your bill if your dog damages anything in the room or on the property.
Service Dogs are permitted. We follow the ADA guidelines and regulations related to the definition of a service dog and performance of it’s task/s. Unfortunately, there’s a lot of fraud by people who simply want to travel with their pets, so innkeepers are allowed by the ADA to ask a few questions to help separate pet owners from people who need a trained SA to help them manage their disability:
1. Is the SA needed because of a disability?
2. What work or task has the SA been trained to perform in order to assist the person with the disability?
The task performed by the dog must be directly related to the person’s disability. For example:
• Many people who are blind or have low vision use dogs to guide and assist them with orientation;
• Individuals who are deaf may use dogs to alert them to sounds;
• People with mobility disabilities often use dogs to pull their wheelchairs or retrieve items;
• People with epilepsy may use a dog to warn them of an imminent seizure;
• Individuals with psychiatric disabilities may use a dog to remind them to take medication, etc…
Dogs or therapy animals whose function is to provide comfort or emotional support do not qualify as Service Animals according to the ADA, even with a doctor’s note.
In order to establish a dog is a Psychiatric Support Animal (PSA) and protected by the ADA, we need a letter – on letterhead – from a licensed mental health care professional saying the dog is necessary to help the individual manage their disability from their mental illness.
SAs must be allowed to accompany the guest with a disability everywhere guests are normally permitted, but must be harnessed, leashed, or tethered, unless these devices interfere with the SA’s work. Individuals who cannot use such devices must maintain control of the animal through voice, signal, or other effective controls. SAs should not approach other guests and must remain quietly at their owner’s feet when seated.
Finally, there are many websites that sell various certification packages, including documents, ID cards, tags and vests, however, there is no documentation recognized by the ADA nor Justice Department that proves a dog is a Service Animal.
- We have numerous parking spaces on a level gravel parking area.
- The parking space for the handicap accessible Caddisfly guest room is very wide and can easily accommodate a van with a lift.
- Since we do not have set-width parking spots, we can easily block off an area for a large handicap accessible van.
- We do not have any covered parking areas.
- Exterior routes to/from various first floor rooms (Mayfly, Caddisfly and Songbird) are via gravel walkways. The handicap accessible Caddisfly guest room is accessed directly from the path/garden area.
- Handicap access to the main lodge is in the back, so a wheelchair would need to go across gravel and grass via a wide ramp.
- Public/common rooms in the main Lodge are accessed through either a front door with five steps or the backyard ramp.
- The backyard ramp allows wheelchair access to the lodge as there are two doors that can be opened to make a very wide access (70 inches).
- There is no registration counter. We greet each guest individually, so if a guest is handicapped, we will greet them at their car to assist, if needed.
- The door entry to the main lodge has one lever action opener, which is easy to operate. The doorway is 35 inches wide, however, there is a second door that can be opened to make the access area 70 inches wide.
- We do not have any automated doors. Someone must manually open/close all doors to the lodge and guest rooms. There are no key readers. All rooms are accessed using regular keys.
- The entry door to the accessible Caddisfly guest room features an easy to use push lever.
- The public bathroom in the main lodge is not wide enough for wheelchair access
All doors are manual; none are automatic.
- Once inside the main Lodge there are two guest rooms, but you must climb stairs to get to them. There is a public bathroom on the main level, but it is not wheelchair accessible.
- Our public area bathroom is not handicap accessible.
- We do not have any signs on the walls. The guest rooms have signs on the doors, but they are not in Braille or raised letters. We show each guest to their guest room and explain the room’s details. We have no signage at the Lodge.
Food Service Areas:
- Food in the main lodge is served to the guests at breakfast. Anyone needing extra assistance is personally helped.
- We would be happy to bring breakfast/wine to the handicap accessible room so a guest does not have to come to the main common area to dine.
- If we have a handicapped guest, we reserve seating for them near the back ramp/door (if necessary) and assist them in entering/leaving.
- We do provide self-service coffee/tea/juice at breakfast. However, we are always willing to serve a guest who has any issues walking/seeing/hearing.
- Juice and coffee areas may not be fully accessible to handicapped guests, in which case we personally serve the guest.
We do not have a drinking fountain, elevator, or public phone.
