About the property

Beautiful 3 bedroom, 2 bath w/ attached 2 br apartment for sept $$ for LG groups

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).

This beautiful home is handicap accessible, sleeps six or more, with three bedrooms and two full bathrooms. Just added a 2 bedroom 1 bath attached apartment for larger groups.

The tranquil master bedroom includes a king size bed, queen size sofa sleeper, television, large jetted tub, and walk-in shower built for two.

The second bedroom offers a queen size bed, ample storage space, television, and private small deck.

The third bedroom has two twin beds that can be put together to make king size bed, and a television. Just let us know ahead of time and we’ll customize the room to fit your needs.

For additional sleeping options the front room has a sofa sleeper, we also have a nice air mattress available if needed.

The front deck includes a secluded hot tub that overlooks the estuary, and has large private areas for enjoying the outdoors.

If you’re hoping to bring a larger group, we have an additional apartment with two queen bedrooms, an Jacuzzi tub, and full amenities. The apartment rents out separately . Contact us if you are interested in renting this additional space. Winter rates are available between October 1st and April 1st.

Elephant Rock Lodge is just two minutes from Gold Beach for shopping, you can enjoy beach combing for treasures such as glass balls, shells, and agates, we have a nearby golf course, or just spend the day sight-seeing. If you prefer something more active, you can enjoy hiking one of the many trails along the Rogue River or the ocean.

The area is well-known for river and ocean fishing for; Salmon, Steel head, Trout, Ling cod, and Rock fish. You can also dig for clams and drop your pots for Dungeness Crab. The area is also well known for hunting, and surfing.

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.

Dear Tina and John,

It's hard to put into words just how wonderful staying at your place was. I live in Gold Beach in a small one bedroom apartment. When I found out my daughter, son in law and grandson with his girl friend were coming to stay with me for four days before relocating to the east coast, I had to find a place we could all stay and be comfortable. Being local, I knew about your place so I check it out on the web site. After reading all the wonderful reviews plus knowing one of your prior guest and hearing what a wonderful time they had. I decided to book with you. Since my family is going to be moving to the other side of the country, I was thinking it was going to be a bitter/sweet visit. You have made your home so comfortable in so many ways; the games the homemade bread, butter, jam and wine, of course the hot tub, the beautiful landscaping, the wonderful comfortable beds. Every time we turned around we found something new. We were all so relaxed and having so fun, we didn't even think about the fact that we were soon going to be so far apart. You really know just what makes a wonderful home away from home. Thank you so very much for making what could have been a sad event so very special. My daughter and family share my heartfelt thanks. You've helped make a wonderful memory for them and for me. There are just not enough words to say how very wonderful your home is.

The Best Out There!!!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Amazing Experience

We spent a week at this wonderful place. The owners are fabulous hosts. The place is immaculate and well cared for. This was truly one of the best, if not the best rental we have ever stayed at and we can't wait to come back. It truly hurt to leave.
