Guest blogger Karen Wickman, owner of the Prospect Historic Hotel, lodging near Crater Lake, Oregon, wants you to know! She writes:
Prospect is a sleepy little town on the side of the road off of Highway 62 in Southern Oregon. It’s right on the way to Crater Lake National Park and is nestled in the middle of the Rogue River National Forest. It is surrounded by astonishing natural wonders that you would never know were there if you didn’t do a little exploring. Within a half a mile of the Prospect Historic Hotel Bed and Breakfast Inn, you can find yourself in a pristine medieval forest cut through by the Rogue River and riddled with streams, waterfalls and mysterious trails to follow.
This image of me at the Avenue of Boulders gives you an idea of the wonderful hiking destinations that are close by. Fred (my doting husband and fellow innkeeper) and I have wonderful free hand drawn maps to assist you on your explorations.
When you’ve explored enough to work up an appetite, you can walk back up the trail to our National Register of Historic Places-listed hotel and step back into time to an authentic Oregon Victorian-styled Dinner House. There, you will enjoy some of the finest food you will find anywhere on your travels. Pair your meal with a local Southern Oregon wine or microbrew to complete a wonderful day.
When you wake up in the morning, you’ll think it was all a dream. But you can go back out again and continue exploring for days and still not see the same thing twice. You’ll never forget where to find the Prospect Hotel.
Karen and Fred Wickman know about Oregon geotourism. Crater Lake National Park is a popular destination in Southern Oregon, but there's more than just the lake to visit. Make the Prospect Historic Hotel your home base for exploring the best eco friendly travel that Southern Oregon can offer. Thanks, Karen!
