Tough to beat this location: Tu Tu' Tun, a gussied-up fishing lodge, spreads across a grassy bank on the shores of the Wild and Scenic Rogue River, just seven miles from Oregon's rugged southern coast. Book a room—they all have river views—to recover in style following a 40-mile expedition on the Rogue's famous Class III–IV whitewater stretch, just 25 miles upstream (Rogue Wilderness Adventures guides three-day trips for $770; wildrogue.com). Other options: swim off the dock, paddle the placid lower Rogue from the lodge in a sea kayak, or ramble down to the coast. A two-hour hike through old-growth Douglas fir and red cedar takes you to a secluded cove looking out on the famous Cape Sebas­tian sea stacks. Dinner is local mesquite-grilled Chinook washed down with a choice of 150 Pacific coast wines. From $135 per person per night; tututun.com
