I just wanted a place in Happy Camp to stay the night of June 30th, so I could do some gold prospecting the next day. I expected nothing more than a place to sleep for the night, but I got a lot more. Here are the things that I'll always remember: > When I arrived and asked where I could... More

We stayed in a great 2-person cabin (#1 of 8) with a wonderful river view. We appreciated all the ammenities packed into the room. John, the new owner, is very personable and working to spruce up the property. I think we were lucky to have quiet neighbors as a connecting room was not well-insulated. We enjoyed our picnic dinner under... More

I fell in love with this little lodge about 2 miles outside Happy Camp, nestled directly on the banks of the Klamath River. The owner, John, bought the place last year and is in the process of remodeling it, so although I wouldn't call it a luxury resort, it's perfect if you want to get away, enjoy nature with a... More

We booked out room for three days, loved it so much that we requested to stay an additional day. When we first arrived the front of the building didn't look like a resort but once checked in and went to the room, the front took my breathe away. It is small resort which made it even better. This was the... More

Rather than being a resort, this place is just an old motel that's situated at a beautiful location. There are only about eight rooms...the rooms are very old and very small...my wife and I felt cramped (I don't know how four people could survive!). The bathroom has extremely low water pressure...water took it's time coming out of the faucet. There... More

I stayed at the inn a few weeks back and really enjoyed my time there it was, so nice to go and sit by the river in the evening and watch the fish jump. The owner was very nice and helpful and the price was not bad for the area.

This is my second visit. Last year I was traveling alone...this time I brought my sister and her husband. You can't beat the setting on the Klamath and the campfire James builds every night. What was really priceless about both my visits was the people I met. Most everyone will either come to the campfire or eat at the tables... More
