The Minam River Lodge is a hike-in, fly-in Lodge in the middle of Northeast Oregon's Eagle Cap Wilderness. Accessible by 8.5-mile hike or charter flight in a small plane, the Lodge is a triumph of craftsmanship and runs on solar power. Other accommodations include hand-built log cabins, wall tents and teepees. Guests enjoy fine wilderness dining from the Lodge's garden and provisions flown in from small local farms, as well as regional wines and specialty cocktails. The wild and scenic Minam River flows through the property and offers a peaceful place to read, relax or watch nature. Guests also can explore scenic day or overnight hikes from the Lodge, ride horseback or cast a line in the river, which is considered nearly pristine. The Lodge can be reached in a day from Portland, Ore.; Boise; or Walla Walla, Wash. Management arranges charter flights for $125 each way from nearby towns including Enterprise. Hiking or riding horseback from nearby Moss Cove Campground takes about 4 hours.
