Ron and Donna Bergquist purchased the Southern Oregon landmark from the Callahan family in 1996, to carry on a rock solid continuously family-owned and operated Southern Oregon business now in its 68th year.
After years of transforming the restaurant into a destination resort, a devastating fire occurred in 2006, resulting in a significant loss for the community. The fire did not deter Ron and Donna from their vision and commitment to a future for Callahan’s. The Bergquists were inspired by the resounding support and encouragement from guests near and far to continue the Callahan’s legacy.
The owners and their family have developed a sense of connection and identity with the business and with the community. These connections will be sustained as the lodge’s management transitions to Jennifer Self, Donna’s sister, and her family. Callahan’s will remain family owned and operated.
Jennifer and Tim anticipate developing Callahan’s future. This includes four more rooms in the lodge, private cabins along the tree line and a complete campground for everyone to enjoy.
With an experienced and dedicated staff and the ongoing support of all of Southern Oregon, Northern California and travelers afar, Callahan’s will continue to be “Ashland’s Mountain Experience” and “A Special Place to Spend Precious Time” for many more years to come.
