This is a review of the restaurant only. The set menu consisted of four courses. Maybe we ate there on an off night. It wasn't that the food was bad; it just wasn't anything special. It was hard to tell sometimes because the portions were so tiny that we barely got a taste of some items. For instance, there was supposed to be baby kale with one dish. That turned out to be one very small leaf about the size of your big toenail -- no kidding. The main course was pork shoulder with plums. The pork shoulder was a small chunk of pulled pork that was rather dry and not particularly flavorful. The four small roasted plums -- more the size of cherries -- from the inn's garden were fine, but not noteworthy. There was a tiny line of dipping sauce for the pork, but there was so little of it that we couldn't even tell what it tasted like. Really, the plates would have made very small appetizers in most restaurants. Fortunately, there were chocolate chip cookies in the lobby; we filled up on those as we left. I would say that they are trying very hard to be a trendy, upscale restaurant and not quite pulling it off. At $90 dollars for two, it was a major disappointment. We won't be giving it a second chance.

Communal style seating with other people which is nice as most people staying at inns or B&B's tend to be nicer people. The chef's dinner was wonderful. The four course meal was served in a beautiful presentation as a well trained chef should be. The fry bread to a duck confit with a salmon to die for. The dessert was adapted for a diabetic diner(me) was excellent and the people we talked to were very friendly and interesting.

We stayed here over the weekend and enjoyed our relaxing stay. We had room 10 and 22. They were both marvelous. The breakfast each morning was delicious. We had dinner 1 night and it was alright. Dean is so knowledgeable and fun to talk to. If you are in the area and wondering where to stay, we would suggest here!

One would never expect such quality in such a rustic setting. The chef and his team have great aspirations and manage to pull off some seriously delicious surprises. The two nights we were there, only two long wooden tables were occupied – 12 or 15 patrons total, meeting each other for the first time. The chef announced dinner at precisely 7 pm. Appetizer courses were plated but entrees were served family-style. We enjoyed such varied dishes as cod cakes with aioli, kobe beef loin, duck confit, pork tenderloin, accompanied by tasty vegetable dishes. Desserts were simple but delicious, utilizing local ingredients such as huckleberries and blackberries. Portions were ample and thoughtfully presented. We wouldn’t say you should drive to this remote location just for dinner but if you think you might be passing through, don’t hesitate to reserve a spot. Dinners were $45/person, which we felt was extremely reasonable for the quality. Additionally, as guests of the inn, we also enjoyed delicious, made-to-order breakfasts.

We didn't know what to expect but this was an absolutely heartwarming experience. The hotel itself is unpretentiously delightful. The owners have done a great job of refurbishing it without destroying the history. The setting is memorable; right on the Klamath River where we could watch the dolphins frolic, the sea lions belt our their frustration, the otters look adorable and even be treated to the flight of the occasional American eagle. But....the best part was, hands down, the food. Tom, who is the owners' son, and Paul, a trained chef, create a feast that is like nothing I have ever eaten. They pull everyone together and flawlessly serve food that is impeccably delicious. My husband and I have eaten many places in the world ( since we are pretty darn old!) and I can't remember a better meal. They use home grown vegetables and
herbs in unique ways. Salmon is caught right that day on the river. The fry bread is the best.
Things are combined in unique but wonderful ways. We ate there for 2 nights and were in heaven. On top of that, breakfast is served, with the best scrambled eggs, pancakes, bread, jams, smoothies, etc. all locally grown. This place is worth any amount of drive. Don't miss it in your lifetime!!!!
