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!
Are you making plans to drive your Tesla along the Oregon Coast on your next vacation adventure?
If so, remember that we have TWO charging stations and we are part of Tesla's Destination Charging network, free for guest use!
Charge your batteries - on the house!
Our charging stations are both rated at 18,000 Volts which will give you about a 40 - 44 miles per hour charged.
These Level 2 chargers are located in our parking lot in front of the rooms on site at the Itty Bitty Inn, approximatley 1/4 mile south of the McCullough Bridge in North Bend and a mile north of the Mill Casino & Hotel in Coos Bay.
We have coffee and tea and wine and beer and cider and Vimto, so come over and chill with us as we take in some infrasonic massage from the dual digeridoos and drumming! Cliff and his wife bring their instruments most Thursdays in the summer time and put on a session for us all to groove to here at the Itty Bitty Inn. Faaaar out, man!
Jam out sessions begin at 7ish and end about 8ish. Bring your sweaters because it gets a little chilly.
The Itty Bitty Inn is located 1/4 mile south of the McCullough Bridge in North Bend, Oregon!
We have TWO tiki themed rooms celebrating the exotica genre of the early 60's and visiting guests often ask us to prepare special tiki drinks for their arrival - how about ordering a Mai Tai or Navy Grog or a Zombie among other tiki-themed drinks available to guests staying at our inn?
Or order the inn's very own specialty drink (with or without alcohol) - the Tiki Cha Cha!
Interested in taking home some locally made rum? Be sure to check out the Stillwagon Distillery in Charelston, Oregon which is only 9 miles away from the Itty Bitty Inn!
