    Wow, look at all the stumps in the background of the 1910 photo.

    I was at a wedding at the Inn this December. What a beautiful place.

      Isn’t it gorgeous? It is so … I don’t know if “fun” is the right word, but … interesting (?) to look at the earlier landscapes, with their naked hills, and see how incredibly an environment can recover. I realize we can’t get old growth back, but mother nature still heals herself in a pretty amazing way.

      Regarding the Inn, I grew up in Rio Dell, and always loved the whole town of Scotia. It always had this great, prosperous feeling and I know the Inn (and the old theater) were a part of that.

    Yes, and all of those trees have grown back and have probably been logged twice since them. Some of the trees are probably the houses that we live in today. That same hillside is now gone and replaced with a freeway.

    I understand there is a ghost living on the third floor, the inn doesn’t use the third floor anymore because of him. (what I heard anyways)

      Hi Al,
      I’ve emailed Angi Caudill, one of the chefs and managers down there and I’ll let you know what she says about the ghost.

      So this is the reply I received from Angi Caudill, one of the current managers of the Scotia Inn. Wish it was a better ghost story, but maybe Frank is real…

      They say there is a ghost named frank Ive spent alot of time there and never heard or seen anything. the Third floor needs electrical work and remodelling that why we dont use it also there is no elevator people dont like taking there stuff up all those stairs
