This is a special place.
Where the river meets the ocean.
With incredible beauty anytime of year.
Because it’s time to reconnect.
ABOUT THE INN
THE INN IS IN THE HEART OF A SERIES OF CO-MANAGED REDWOOD PARKS THAT HAVE BEEN DECLARED BOTH AN INTERNATIONAL BIOSPHERE RESERVE AND WORLD HERITAGE SITE.
The town of Requa (pronounced Rek-wah) was a bustling fishing center on the Klamath River in the late 1800s when a hotel was first constructed to serve the Klamath’s numerous fish cannieries. Although the bustling commercial center is now a sleepy village in the Redwood National Park, the Historic Requa Inn has been a feature of the area for 100 years. Built in 1914, the plain, almost utilitarian arts and crafts Inn continues to be a special place today. And this is a special place. Since time immemorial the Yurok people have had a village at Rek-woi – making Requa one of the longest, continuously inhabited places in California.
Every room in the Inn is different, and there is sure to be one that is just right for you. Some have magnificent views of the Klamath River and each has a private bathroom - some with claw-foot bathtubs - and are furnished in antiques.
Change in Management
The Historic Requa Inn has gone through some exciting changes! While Janet & Marty Wortman continue to own this beautiful location, they have turned over management to BookStayHop, LLC™ , a local company specializing in Vacation Rental Management, so that they can spend more time with their family. Returning guests will see some new faces, namely Joey Keller and Hannah Estey as the Inn’s new innkeepers. We at BookStayHop will continue to maintain exceptional guest services along with respecting the history of the of the Inn, its property, and the Yurok tribe. As Marty often stays, “The worst day at Requa is better than the very best day in Beaverton”. After being closed due to the pandemic, we are thrilled to welcome back the Inn’s returning guests as well as all those who have yet to experience this historic building, sacred grounds, and the stunning surrounding area.
The Requa Inn Restaurant is currently closed for the off-season for repairs.
We are including a bagged breakfast every morning that guests can either eat in the dining room or take on the road.

Welcome to the California Redwoods
THIS HISTORIC REQUA INN IS IN THE HEART OF A SERIES OF CO-MANAGED REDWOOD PARKS THAT HAVE BEEN DECLARED BOTH AN INTERNATIONAL BIOSPHERE RESERVE AND WORLD HERITAGE SITE. WELCOME.–
The Klamath area is magical for people who love the outdoors.Redwood National Park, Prairie Creek Redwoods State Park, Del Norte Coast Redwoods State Park, Jedediah Smith Redwoods State Park, Smith River National Recreation Area, and the Pacific coast are all within a 40-minute radius of the Inn.
The area is sparsely populated (Del Norte County has about 28,000 people) and largely wilderness. The parks are visited most heavily in the summer, but even then you won’t find the crowds that often come with National Parks. Fall and spring are even better times to experience the wildness of this place, and to watch the migration of whales off shore.
We had a wonderful time- Such a lovely Inn, saw black bears swimming across the river and the walk to hidden beach is well worth the effort. Thank you!
