Location is everything here; this historic inn is positioned on an estuary where the Klamath River meets the ocean. It has been a valued part of the sleepy village of Requa (pronounced Rek-wah) for over 100 years. Each room is different: claw-foot bathtubs and bamboo floors in some, antiques and river views in others. Start the day with a giant stack of maple syrup-drizzled pancakes, washed down with hot coffee, before setting off on a hiking or kayaking adventure among the redwoods.
