Wish we had more time here - it's really quaint with an old school bath with shower. The decor and corridors remind me of The Shining a little - bit creepy, but cosy. Clean rooms, plenty of towels and breakfast.
Outside is very noisy (as expected) and not great after dark - loads of people lingering. But hotel is nice. Just wish it had been a bit cooler so we didn't have to open the window - fan wasn't very strong.

We stopped along the way at Stout Grove (no Ewoks were out) then lunched in Crescent City, stopped at Trees of Mystery, and Fern Canyon. We were charged by a elk and forded three …
... five years ago one part of the tree fell according to the manager of the Inn. The second part had just fallen so there’s one part left. The smell was incredible – not bad but like pine trees and cedar trees, a very woodsy smell. The inside of the tree had a white middle and pink and red areas around. This was such an awesome experience. Kai and McKinley were really enthralled over the whole situation.

... and it seems like a tyrannosaurus could come racing around the corner at any moment. The creek had much more water than last time and more people too since this was a Saturday. It was very fresh and green there. We even found a small waterfall that had a good rainbow on it. Pics of the trail attached. Jie drove us out of there and that was fun...i took some extended video of this and she tried to hit every pothole, twist my ...
