Wolf Creek Inn

Back in the early days of movies, the Inn became a refuge for beleaguered actors seeking an escape from the demanding Hollywood studios. Mary Pickford found the Inn warm and comforting, especially when Douglas Fairbanks accompanied her on the visit. Clark Gable was a good friend of the innkeeper in the 1930’s and stopped by several times while fishing the Rogue River just a few miles west of the Inn. Other visitors that have signed the guest register include Carol Lombard and Orson Wells.

Between 1975 and 1979, the Inn was acquired by the State of Oregon and restored. Oregon State Parks Foundation assisted in the development of an interpretive photo display that summarizes the history of the Inn.

It is listed in the National Register of Historic Places and is owned and operated as a bed-and-breakfast inn by the Oregon Parks and Recreation Department.
