Absolutely fabulous... personalized comfort need we say more. Just two miles up the famous Rogue River, you'll find this very private, gated home located on one acre of land.
where we greet you with a warm home made bread, whipped butter, local jams, and a bottle of our own Blackberry or Kiwi wine.
Once called the Nulf Apartments, built in the 1950’s, it was comprised of three units with car ports between the units. We recently renovated the building, creating a modern 2,900 square foot cabin-style home, over-looking the Rogue River Estuary on a private one acre lot.
During your stay, you can enjoy golfing from one of the decks, play horseshoes, Disc Golf, Yard dice, Corn Hole, Croquette, Volleyball, or sit back and watch the elk as they graze in the field below.
Bird watchers enjoy a variety of native birds including a pair of Ospreys that nest nearby. Wildlife abounds in this private, beautifully landscaped getaway. As you stroll through the property you will find a small Koi pond, lovely gardens, along with grape and kiwi arbors. We had the honor of being a part of the Annual Coastal Garden and Art Tour on three occasions.
For the young at heart we have trails leading to the Rogue River where you can explore the landscape. Just down the road, you’ll find the nearby Elephant Rock Interpretive Trail where you can learn about the flora and fauna of the area.
Help yourself to fresh organic fruits, berries, vegetables from our garden, and basic staples from our well-stocked pantry as you prepare your meals. If you’d prefer to be pampered, Gold Beach offers several restaurants with broad menus and coastal atmospheres.
Bring the whole family! The fenced yard and gated drive provide security for children and pets. We ask a modest pet fee of $100.00 for first pet and $50.00 for the second (two pet limit).

About John & Tina Schweers
We have lived in Gold Beach most of our lives and we know almost everyone in town. John has been employed by the local lumber yard since 1981 and enjoys golfing, hence the golf deck. We purchased this property with the intention of creating a vacation rental unlike any other. As we were rebuilding we fell in love with this home and decided to stay. Now we are looking for new adventures in life and we want to share our beautiful home with others.
John & Tina Schweers purchased this Lodge in 2003
Why John & Tina Schweers chose Gold Beach
Because it's a beautiful, peaceful place, you can just sit back and relax in your rocking chair on the deck and watch the wildlife. A herd of elk can often be seen from the deck as they wander along the river. If you like to golf you better bring a club and some balls to hit off our golf deck. You will find something unique around ever corner. And it's just minutes from town and the beaches. Gold Beach is known as the Banana Belt of Oregon . On cooler days, you'll often find that the weather is warmer at Elephant Rock Lodge even though it's just two miles from the beach.
What makes this Lodge unique
Elephant Rock Lodge has an open floor plan that allows for beautiful views from many angles and provides you with handicap accessibility throughout. Begin your day with a beverage on the deck while watching the elk, birds, and other wildlife. Choosing fresh organic vegetables, fruit, and berries to add to your meals is an additional treat. When you arrive, you will be greeted with a loaf of fresh home made bread and a bottle of home made wine that is sure to make you feel right at home. You'll also find a fully loaded pantry with most of the basic ingredients you'll need to prepare your meals. Would you like to have more space? We also have a two bedroom apartment that is available as well. So come see what's behind our coded gate.

Our family had a wonderful stay! We would certainly return!
From the elk in the mornings and evening to the wild turkeys and koi pond, this vacation get away was one of a kind. Every outdoor game you can think of was provided. The hot tub on the deck over looks beautiful rolling hills while listening to the peaceful sounds of the creek, you certainly feel relaxed and at home. Just remember, when the john and Tina tell you that you only need to bring yourself, they mean it! The house is fully stocked, information for restaurants near by and delivery options is available. Bathrooms have the essential amenities to help lessen your load! Our family recommends Elephant Rock Lodge to anyone who enjoys nature, high quality living accommodations and comforts of home. The gated lodge makes you feel secure and safe and yet gives you privacy. Thank you John and Tina!

We will definitely be staying in this cabin again.
Well we hope to see you again! & thank you for taking such good care of our home away from home:)
The Best Out There!!!
We refuse to stay in hotels and because of this we are well seasoned in the range and diversity of vacation rentals. On average we stay at about 5-6 vacation rentals per year and in all of our experience the Elephant Rock Lodge is one of the finest! The amenities were replete, the extras were divine, and the house was beautifully apportioned. All too often owners will neglect the embellishments and ambience of an interior which makes for a enjoyable stay, but these folks have mastered it. The best part was the pristine hot tub which we reveled in each night!
Highly recommended to all and we promise you wont be disappointed!
David thank you for the kind words, we look forward to seeing you again.
it was very clean and Tina & John are great hosts and its get for Kids and pets to run around out side
We are glad you all had a good time.
Unique one-of-a-kind can't wait to go back
