Diamond on the Rogue

Tu Tu' Tun Lodge, Oregon

Outside Magazine

After kayaking a calm stretch of the Rogue River and hiking the Shrader Trail through forest that feels primeval—packed with rhododendrons, cedars, and firs—you might feel like you're in pre-pioneer Oregon. Thankfully, not so. You're a hop away from Tu Tu' Tun Lodge, the perfect melding of Pacific Northwest wilderness and rich comfort. Everything here is alive with textures: Granite counters, wool carpet, and down pillows make up your suite. Before dinner, drink a local pinot noir on the terrace and watch the resident pair of ospreys fish for their dinner as you await yours. Tu Tu' Tun revolves around an appetite—for food and fitness the outdoors way—so dinner is bound to taste good, and it might even surprise you. Had a good mesquite-grilled white sturgeon with wasabi-ginger butter lately? Doubles from $165; 800-864-6357, www.tututun.com
