Our room was clean, had a great shower and fully equipped kitchen. The beach was nice to lay out on and we enjoyed swimming in the river. We also loved playing ping pong and basketball. Nightly fire was a great way to end the night....More

About
Description
Summer like it used to be. Big Bend Lodge is a small 1940’s resort that sits on an idyl­lic and com­pletely pri­vate sec­tion of the South Fork of the Eel River in Northern Men­do­cino County. We have nine rustic ...More cabins with full kitchens that can accommodate 4 to 5 people each and some of our cabins are dog friendly. A well-kept secret amongst California families and groups who've been coming to the lodge for decades, Big Bend Lodge strives to maintain the relaxed and friendly atmosphere of days gone by when the perfect vacation was floating on a river all day and then telling stories around a campfire at night. A wonderful place for children, Big Bend Lodge is also a perfect place for a group of adults to book for a completely private and relaxed get-away.*Under new ownership by six families who have been coming to the lodge for years.* Less
