This lodge is located in the heart of the Eagle Cap Wilderness in Northeastern Oregon. The solar-powered lodge is completely off-grid and is accessible only by an eight and a half-mile hike, horseback ride or charter flight to the property's grass airstrip.
Three upstairs lodge rooms feature hand-crafted furnishings of native fir, fine bedding and spectacular views of the Minam River Valley. These rooms share a bath and separate shower room on the floor.
Downstairs, the lodge offers a large bar and kitchen area where guests can enjoy specialty cocktails and meals grilled over a wood fire by an on-site chef. Much of the food comes from the lodge's own wilderness garden. The spacious indoor dining area is set around the stunning central fireplace. Gorgeous floor-to-ceiling windows open onto the deck.
Amenities include massage, a wood-fired hot tub, and saunas near the river.
This state-of-the-art retreat sits on 126-acres of privately held land within the Wallowa-Whitman National Forest. Guests can rejuvenate in the wood-fired hot-tub or the sauna, just meters from the river. The central wood-burning fireplace also heats the lodge and provides hot water for guests. There is a rustic bathhouse and all accommodation types are equipped with plush linen.
Glampers can enjoy American craft cooking from the on-site chef at the custom designed fire-pit. Meats from local ranches as well as greens, vegetables, and herbs from the private garden will keep guests well fed throughout their stay. Diners can also choose to eat in the lodge or on the deck under the stars.
At the wilderness bar, guests can enjoy signature cocktails and cold beer from Enterprise’s Terminal Gravity brewery. The bar has one of the best-stocked wine callers in the wilderness.
Internet service is extremely limited, so visitors can enjoy a truly unplugged trip.

The picturesque route is the perfect for visitors who like to get in the water, watch wildlife, or simply relax among nature.

A mile upstream, the hardshow corner above Red’s Horse Ranch is excellent for both angling and swimming. Guests interested in small stream fishing can head to Backbone Ridge or Little Minam for a day trip.
Closer to the retreat, glampers can unwind in the comfort of the lodge with a luxurious Swedish, deep tissue or myofascial release massage.
