Imperial River Company

Imperial River Company is the only place to dine and stay on the banks of the Deschutes River in Maupin.  When you walk into the lodge, which takes its name from Imperial Stock Ranch, a working ranch that has been in continuous operation since 1871, you immediately feel connected with the history and surrounding area.  Local artisans’ crafts, along with ranch artifacts and photos, are on display in the lobby, and if you want to learn more about the family ranch, ranch tours are available. Whether you’re just stopping by for a riverfront meal from a menu inspired by the high desert or staying the night in one of their Oregon themed rooms, this will become an important part of your visit to the Deschutes River Canyon.  From here, the options for enjoying the area are endless… rafting, kayaking, fishing, relaxing, cycling, hiking, bird watching, and more.

“Together, we are carrying on”…that is the motto of the family that owns Imperial River Company and Imperial Stock Ranch.  Their belief is that an ever improving landscape leads to a healthy economy, which in turn directly contributes to the vitality of the local and regional community. Imperial River Company’s goal is to preserve a quality rural lifestyle, and share that experience with visitors to the area.  By promoting tourism to the area and capturing the flavor of the high desert in décor and cuisine, and serving up great Imperial Stock Ranch beef and lamb, Imperial River Company is achieving this goal.
