Half Moon Bar Lodge is one of the most beautiful properties in Oregon and in the United States. The Rogue River literally surrounds the lodge and the property. In Robert Redford’s words, “a river runs through it.” The Rogue River is famous for its fly fishing for trophy salmon and steelhead as captured in the timeless books of Zane Grey. Zane Grey wrote many of his books and caught many steelhead and salmon at his cabin just upstream of the lodge.
The Rogue River was among the first rivers designated as Wild and Scenic. With very few private properties within the Wild and Scenic river corridor and the millions of national Forest acres surrounding Half Moon Bar Lodge, it has become the home to river otters, deer, bears, foxes, eagles, and osprey. The feeling at Half Moon is awe-inspiring, which is probably why the Native Americans chose the adjacent property as their ceremonial ground. The tree lined canyon walls of green with river wind allow the eagles to soar up the canyon and over the lodge.
The main lodge has a great room with fireplace, a large dining area, bar with an Oregon OLCC license to serve alcohol, a commercial kitchen, managers or owners apartment, staff quarters, and eight guest rooms. The Orchard House has seven rooms with vaulted ceilings and pine walls. There are four individual cabins, a workshop, generator building, river tram, boat dock, river trails, and organic garden. The property comes with a private Half Moon BNar Lodge jet boat, irrigation and lawn care equipment, golf cart, tractor, and two electric generators. Irrigation rights are from the Rogue River and potable water comes from the well with storage tanks.
Access includes a private air strip, jet boat access up the river from Foster Bar (approximately 14 miles) or floating down from Graves Creek Bridge.
