A real getaway that's not so far away
Just 38 scenic miles east of Roseburg, Oregon, the Steamboat Inn may well be the most memorable part of your Umpqua Region wine country tour!
Who says you can't have it all?
Steamboat Inn will soothe your nerves, pamper your palate, delight your senses and cater to your comfort, all in an unspoiled setting on the North Umpqua River in Southern Oregon. Here the only sounds are those of a rushing river and local birds... the primary scents, those of evergreens and blooming flowers.
Serious fly fishermen try to keep this all a secret, since the stretch of river where Steamboat Inn is located is renowned for its summer and fall runs of wild Steelhead... and has been for decades. These upper stretches of the North Umpqua have been fished by fly anglers since the 1920s, and many of the anglers who came were among the best fly fishermen of their day; the most famous sportsman to use the area was Zane Grey.
While many Inn guests come for the challenging fishing of the North Umpqua River, many others come to Steamboat Inn for its lovely and secluded accommodations, the spectacular wilderness beauty - enhanced by the soothing hum of the nearby River - and its much-acclaimed food, wine list and its guest chef / winemaker dinners.
Accommodations at Steamboat Inn vary in size and proximity to the river, but all exhibit the same dedication to quality, individuality, comfort and personal needs.

Dining at Steamboat Inn...
Steamboat Inn is known for its Northwest Cuisine for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Locally grown ingredients enhance flavors of the Inn's "honest home cooking." During the daytime, the Inn is not only a gathering place for fishermen, but for tourists and locals as well. Open daily spring through fall and in the winter on weekends (except closed January & February), the Day Cafe offers a menu featuring homemade soups, pies, breads and other delicious treats available for breakfast and lunch and an early dinner special for those not attending "Evening Dinner."
Reservations a MUST
The "Evening Dinner" is far from the ordinary restaurant dining affair. The festive dinner-hour experience at Steamboat begins when guests gather in the library to sip an apéritif and enjoy appetizers. Next, guests are invited to be seated in the main dining room at massive and long wood-slab tables, and the first course is served.
Each summer night at dusk and winter at around seven o'clock, the doors of Steamboat Inn close to all but Inn guests and those who have made reservations.
Family-style meals, as the description suggests, consist of one sumptuous menu served to all guests. (With advance notice, the Inn is happy to accommodate any food allergies, strong dislikes or vegetarian diets.)
Savory side dishes, homemade bread and Oregon wines accompany the meal. The meal is followed by a tempting dessert made for the occasion.
Whether you're looking for an extraordinary dining, lodging, fishing or getaway experience, be sure to join the folks at Steamboat Inn on the scenic North Umpqua river.
