SALEM, Ore. -- The Wolf Creek Inn State Heritage Site will once again be open for full-service dining and overnight lodging starting April 1, 2018. The 135-year-old inn, located 18 miles north of Grants Pass, will be managed by The Public, LLC.  That contract was recently awarded by the Oregon Parks and Recreation Department (OPRD).


ORPD officials say "Wolf Creek Inn has been a popular stop for Oregon travelers since the 1880s, including notable authors and Hollywood film stars. The inn was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1972, and was acquired by OPRD in 1975. It is the oldest continuously operated hotel in the Pacific Northwest."

The inn has nine guestrooms, all with private baths. The two-story building retains the Classical Revival architectural style typical of early inns in the American west. Furnished with both original and reproduction furniture, the inn is open daily for free guided tours. Visitors can also enjoy lunch and dinner at the inn restaurant.

The Public, LLC was founded in November 2016. Owner Andrew Shroyer previously operated Garden Creek Ranch in Hells Canyon, Idaho. Shroyer says that the opportunity to operate the historic inn was "once in a lifetime," and plans to continue the inn's tradition as a relaxing retreat.

"We're excited to honor the historical significance of the inn and join the great community of Wolf Creek," said Shroyer.
