Marci purchased this Estate in 2011
Why Marci chose Curry County
The Chetco River Inn is a breathtaking wilderness estate on a private 36 acre parcel that's surrounded by the Siskiyou National Forest and built by Clay and Sandra Bruger. Since it's creation as a homestead, the Inn has inspired memories of warm hospitality, natural beauty, and unique outdoor activities. After two recent changes of ownership, the Chetco River Inn is open once again. The popular caretakers, Oscar and Kat, are ready to welcome all visitors...and introduce you to the property.
What makes this Estate unique
In the summer months, we enjoy swimming and floating down the gentle Chetco river. In the winter, we love fishing for Salmon and hiking the many surrounding unspoiled acres. During the Spring, Summer, and Fall we enjoy observing the Pinot Noir vineyard.

This is an amazing place!
We love returning each year. The views from the porch and beach are beautiful. The house is fully loaded with games, puzzles and movies, and there's plenty of space to stretch out - even with three other families! Oscar the host is friendly, helpful and quick if we need anything. Our favorite part is seeing all of our children running and exploring outside in the wild, being free and one with nature. We can't wait until next time!
Mulit-generational family vacation
We had 5 kids, ages 6-18, and 6 adults, including grandparents, for three wonderful nights and four days at the Chetco Inn. The main attraction for us was the river, which we all spent most of our time in. Even the littlest of our group could paddle our inflatable kayak up to "Flat Rock" where the kids gathered to jump off the rocks and sunbathe. There was room for everyone to have their own room/bed and the kitchen is completely stocked. The library in the den is amazing. We are a family of readers and everyone was amazed at the number of books for all ages. We barbecued and had s'mores outside. One day we hiked to the Chetco Gorge (the trail is a bit tricky) but mainly we swam. I highly recommend this property and hope to return!
We loved having your family and hope you return every year.
An Annual Tradition!
Our local mushroom club rents The Chetco River Inn lodge for our annual holiday meeting. The grounds are so beautiful, and the lodge is really warm and charming for our potluck. We always have such a great time that the group has voted to hold this meeting there every year. Thank you Marci and Dan!
Awesome Family Vacation Destination
We spent four short days enjoying all this home has to offer! The grandchildren swam, swam and swam some more. Hiking, biking and family games. We had many meals together and a great BBQ. The kitchen is easy to work in and well appointed. Cooking with gas is a little different but easily mastered. Plenty of room for many cooks and many meals - two dishwashers! What a treat when there are 15 people to feed. The bedrooms are plenty as are the bathrooms. No one felt like we were crowded. I really don't think we had a down side because there were so many positives! We really loved being off the grid. Sweet, sweet family time. We will definitely return. Many, many thanks!!
We loved hosting your family and hope to do so for many years to come. Have a wonderful rest of your summer!
The Barker Family
We stayed at the Inn for a family wedding and loved the house and area. The caretakers were especially wonderful people and we enjoyed meeting them. We loved seeing the pot-bellied pig, peacocks and chickens as well.
It is a great place for a family to stay and enjoy nature.
We believe we even saw a bear on our ride out the last morning at 4:00 a.m.
Three of us in the Rockhouse
We rented the Rockhouse for a week in early August and really enjoyed it. Loved swimming and fly fishing in the Chetco, interacting with all the animals, (sheep wrangling, especially!), picking fresh blackberries every morning, local hikes and walks, enjoying the coast, etc. etc. There is no Wifi in the Rockhouse, so if you need to stay in contact with the outside world, it's a bit of a challenge (and only possible if you stand in the back outside the Big House). Also, no cell phone service or TV. But, if you WANT to disconnect...this is a great place to do it.
The caretakers (Kat and Oscar) are wonderful people and their positive "vibe" and generosity really add to the experience.
One thing I would note: if you're needing to do a lot of cooking, the Rockhouse kitchen is quite small (no microwave) and not particularly well-equipped in terms of kitchen utensils, though well stocked for cups, plates, silverware, etc. (For example, no kitchen tongs, no measuring cup, no good knife for cutting veggies or meats.) But these are small inconveniences and if you're prepared with your own kitchen "must haves" you'll be fine.
One addition to the house that would be awesome would be screen doors, so you can keep the front and side doors open and really bring the outside in, while keeping the mosquitoes and flies out!
I would definitely recommend the Rockhouse for people who want unplug and take a break from the world. (I didn't miss listening to NPR for one minute!)
Our private 36 acre property offers acres of river frontage, a long stretch of beach along the river, swimming holes, rapids, fishing, boat put-in, deep water holes for fishing or jumping, walking trails, our vineyard, veggie garden, orchard, guest camping areas, fire pit with grill, hammocks, a horse shoe pit, and seating along the banks of the river.
Enjoy world-class Salmon and Steelhead fishing directly in front of the Inn and cottage during their season. Or, local guides can be recommended for those who wish to float fish using one of their boats down a long stretch of the river. Cutthroat trout fishing is also popular in nearby tributaries of the main Chetco river. River kayaking, floating, and paddleboarding can be done with easy river access from the property. Besides trails on our property, nearby hiking and mountain biking trails are in the surrounding Siskiyou National Forest and the nearby Kalmiopsis Wilderness areas.
