If you are looking for a place to renew, revive and relax - this is it.
I have very warm memories of my visits to the Chetco River Inn. Not only is the location (set on 40 acres, fronted by the Chetco River and surrounded by forested land) unbelievably beautiful - the Innkeepers, Sandra & Clay Brugger, made me feel immediately as if I was "home". The breakfasts served each morning are world class and to die for! (Ask for Sandra's Dutch Baby and Clay's potatoes - you'll be in heaven!)
If you aren't in the mood to hang out around the river or hike in the woods you can always pop in your car and head into town where you will find plenty to explore along the Oregon coast. Beautiful beaches and quaint coastal towns (visit Bandon by the Sea and get the salt water taffy) and wonderful scenery north or south.
In the evening, after a long full day of exploring, we enjoyed sitting outdoors around the patio fire pit having lively conversation with Sandra, Clay and the other guests.
I have to mention another favorite memory - Molly & Max, the 2 Scottish Terriers that watch over the Inn and it's guests. So much personality in such small packages, they were our willing & energetic companions on our trip along the river shore :) :) Very sweet!
If you are into photography, make sure you bring your camera. The scenery is a photo op at every turn, with the river so clean & clear and absolutely astounding sunsets. We spent most of our trip taking photos :)
The Chetco River Inn is a place that, once you've been, you'll want to go back to again and again and again. We will.
