Weekend Warrior: Steamboat, Oregon

Like all Weekend Warriors, I'm always thinking of non-stop excitement, get-up-and-go-crazy, a thrill a minute, fun stuff to do. A reputation like that is a hard thing to fake. But this weekend I'm going to combine some world-class activities with some opportunities to stop and smell the flowers, the wine and the scent of relaxation. I'm heading to the North Umpqua River and the Steamboat Inn. Grab your fishing pole and let's go.

Get an early start south on Highway 97 through LaPine, Gilchrist, Chemult and then west at the Crater Lake cut-off. Take Highway 138 past Diamond Lake, along the Umpqua River to the Steamboat Inn.

The Inn is surrounded by lush gardens, a stone's throw from the dramatic river, carved chalk-green from the torrents. The Inn offers 20 choices in accommodations, including Streamside Cabins, Hideaway Cottages, River Suites and Camp Water Houses. Most overlook the river, with several others tucked into serene wooded settings. Each offers the one must-have amenity: A fireplace. Aaah. Home base for the weekend.
