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.
We want you to feel at home when you stay with us.
Good food and good people make for a great time and a unforgettable vacation.
We pride ourselves in the food we serve for breakfast and dinner. We want your eating experience to be memorable.We believe that good food is an important part of being happy.We think you’ll be happy eating giant pancakes smothered in real maple syrup, drinking expertly roasted coffee, and looking out the window while the morning sun reflects off the Klamath river and fog clears revealing an old growth redwood forest. It really is that dreamy.
We offer an ample, cooked-to-order breakfast. The perfect start to your adventure!
8AM – 10AM Every morning
Breakfast is not included in Accommodations
Breakfast is always available at the Historic Requa Inn. Our self-serve coffee and tea service are ready around 7 a.m. each morning for early risers (almost everyone becomes an early riser during their stay at the Requa – mornings are too beautiful to sleep through). From 8am to 10am we serve a hearty hot breakfast which will include lots of choices which will be listed in the dining room.
Either way you’ll be well prepared for hiking, kayaking, fishing, beach combing, or any outdoor activity you choose in the redwoods!
We try our hardest to make sure that every dietary need is taken care of. Let us know in advance of staying if you have any special needs so we can make your stay as enjoyable (and hassle free) as possible.
Due to Covid-19 we will not be serving dinner at this time.
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!
