The Steamboat Inn

42705 N. Umpqua Hwy., 38 miles east of Roseburg on Hwy. 138, near Steamboat Creek, Idleyld Park, Oregon, 97447, United States

The world's top fly-fishermen converge at this secluded forest inn, high in the Cascades above the emerald North Umpqua River; others come simply to relax in the reading nooks or on the broad decks of the riverside guest cabins nestled below soaring fir trees and surrounded by verdant gardens. Lodging choices include riverside cabins, forest bungalows (some sleep up to six), and riverside suites; the bungalows and suites have kitchens. Make reservations well in advance, especially for a stay between July and October, the prime fishing months (guide services are available, as are equipment rentals and sales). The exceptionally good restaurant, which offers occasional winemaker and guest-chef dinners, caters primarily to guests, but also has a limited number of tables available by reservation. It's also open for breakfast and lunch to the general public.
