“New Year joy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 January 2014

This was the second time we brought in the New Year at Steamboat Inn. The setting is warm, peaceful, scenic. The group gathered for the food and wine was a wonderful mix of interesting people. We spent the day hiking to several of the nearby waterfalls. When in our wonderfully appointed room, we read by the cozy stove, listening to the river off our deck. Breakfast was a high point each day as well. This is our second time for the celebration, but our fourth visit, overall.

Room Tip: All the riverside cabins are centrally located and well appointed.

My weekend stay at the Steamboat was one of my favorite trips ever, as we stayed here on our trip to Crater Lake! It is so beautiful and romantic. The Inn is near the Umpqua river and the noise of the water is so relaxing. Dinner was good and seating is family style at a large table. Before dinner hors d'oeuvres are served with wine in the library which allows you to get comfortable with other guest you will later be eating with. This is a good ice breaker. Wine is free in the library but if you want wine at dinner you have to pay. If your lucky like my gf and I someone you meet may share their wine :)

The rooms do not have TV or internet. Wi fi is available in the dinning area and in the library but it is slow. We did not feel we really needed these luxuries because we were so tired from our outdoor activities. We hiked 10 miles at Crater Lake. The lake is about an hour away if I remember but it is a beautiful drive. I hope to come back in the future!

Room Tip: Choose the stream side cabins as you have a shared porch that looks over the river and the sound of...

We stayed here over a weekend and it was idyllic. I loved falling asleep listening to the sound of the river. We participated in a river rafting trip during the day which was the perfect way to enjoy the river. And then later that night, joined the other guests of the hotel for their dinner. The food was great (and they accomodate for dietary restrictions!), and eating at a big banquet table with the other guests was a great way of hearing about everyone's days. We spent the next day hiking to various waterfalls in the area.

This is a beautiful spot. I highly recommend staying at this inn and having dinner here.

The only minor complaint was the room was pretty hot. We had a fan but it wasn't enough to really cool the room down.

While returning from a trip over the Cascades through some of the most scenic beauty in all of Oregon (Crater Lake, North Umpqua River valley, highway 139), we happened upon this road stop. There is little warning so be on the lookout for this lovely facility perched along the edge of the river. It is a veritable oasis between the tall mountain peaks to the east and I-5 corridor to the west. We enjoyed a tasty, unique and tasty brunch. The staff was pleasant, relaxed and helpful. We met one of the owners who explained some of the history of the area and the facility's highlights. If you are looking for a true hideaway for a few days or a rest-stop to excite the senses, stop here.

The inn's main accommodation is a series of cabins and a gracious adjacent building with restaurant, café and sitting room/library. The riverbank site slopes steeply to the water's edge and, seated on decking outside the cabins, you look through the leaves of the trees to the bubbling river below. The sound of the water made a pleasant night-time background. There are paths on which you can scramble the short distance to the river's edge to admire the rapids, or to fish. Our room itself, in one of the Streamside Cabins, was comfortable and warm even though the temperature outside fell sharply in the night. There was a wash-basin in the bedroom and an adjacent bathroom.

The fixed price, fixed menu dinner was communal, seated on a bench at a long table, as in a college at Oxford or Cambridge (or Hogwarts School!). Pre-dinner drinks (wine of several types) were served in the library with canapés in a cocktail party atmosphere. People were happy and friendly, and the talk across the table was lively. The meal was well prepared and served (drinks with the meal cost extra). Breakfast was the usual and well prepared.

We left thinking that it would have been good to stay for a longer time. It is a remote location and I doubt our journeys will take us that way again, but I would certainly want to stay again if I could.

Exquisite natural riverside setting, lovely, cozy, private room with deck and spectacular river view, splendid gourmet dinners, with chef who graciously accommodated my food allergies, all in close proximity to waterfalls, swimming holes, fishing spots, lakes, and more. We'll definitely return!

Great one-night stay with delicious hearty meal. Staff treated us like we were staying forever, friendly, accommodating, helpful. We had a riverside cabin, it was very comfortable and lovely river sounds all night. Would definitely go again. Also, the breakfast was the best we've ever had outside our own kitchen.
