We hear wedding bells!
Our Tiki Lounge Room hosted artists and gallery owners Gary & Kim, from Florence, Oregon.
Gary proposed to Kim just now, in the Tiki Lounge Room… and she said YES!
Congratulations, my friends - may your marriage be happy and light hearted.
And may there be great health and wealth!
Beam us up!
Newly built equipment from Star Trek's USS Enterprise transporter room electronics console has arrived for our guests' enjoyment.
Jon Simon of Connecticut is one of the nation's best pop culture sci-fi equipment crafters, and he hand-builds some of the most highly collectible, screen accurate stage props in the world! We now have four of his treasures - especially constructed for our Star Trek themed hotel room!
Guests staying in our USS Enterprise - Star Trek Room will remember the transporter room console from various episodes, as the lighted display toggles through different modes and audio from various episodes of Star Trek's original series loops in the background.
This is cause for celebration!!!
A cheery toast and THANK YOUs to the folks from Oregon's adventure magazine, That Oregon Life - for such a gracious nod and such a sweet write-up!
We are featured among some mighty fantastic places and are honored to me included among them.
When I read that our inn features biking and Ataris and digeridoo jam sessions, I was like aaaaw, I wanna go there!
'Farm OUT, man!' - as my Dad would say.
It's that perfect time of year when finally our REAL summer arrives - September!
Ah September, when we have actual sunny days that reach 70 degrees (sometimes) and the huckleberries are ripe and ready to eat on the spot - or take home to make jam/jellies!
Our kayaks are ready and so are the little islands on the creeks and rivers and lakes, which make for the perfect stop while you're out kayaking. Paddle up to the shore and take off your gear and go on a walk-about to find berries (or go to the potty).
We LOVE September!
And Virgos. And Libras.
Dr. Ian Munanura and Javier Parada from Oregon State University's Department of Forest Ecosystems and Society College of Forestry visited Coos County's wildly popular Whiskey Run Mountain Bike Trails this week. They are helping our county in providing an assessment of needs for those visiting the area who are drawn here for outdoor recreation activities - in mountain biking!
Dr. Munanura also explained to me that he believes that businesses in the county all tie together to support these needs and can become business allies across many industries.
This leads to economic development opportunities which translates to jobs.
Who knows, maybe we can grow an eco-tourism base from this assesement!
If ever you've visited the Whiskey Run Mountian Bike Trails system, please help us help Dr. Munanura's effort by taking this survey.
Itty Bitty Inn is on Travel Oregon's bicycling network and is located on Route 101, one mile north of the Mill Casino and a quarter mile south of McCullough Bridge over Coos Bay.
It's no secret that we've featured themed shirts for The Star Trek Room and that 70's Room.
With mega help from famed graphics designers from Lumenbrite of ATX, teammates Dulce and Katrina Villarreal created new Tiki Room themed crops and tees and are NOW available at the Itty Bitty Inn!
We have two tiki themed rooms. The Tiki Lounge Room and The Tiki Cha-Cha Room both feature mid-century exotica vibes and decor!
