Built on a bluff above a steep bank, the Requa has awe-inspiring view of the Klamath River and surrounding redwood forest. Opening in 1914 when Requa was a bustling cannery row, the lodge now has a B&B vibe, but with more privacy—it doesn't have the layout of a private home, so there are larger public spaces and you can come and go unnoticed, if you please. Rooms are individually decorated with lovely antiques, which makes up for the fact that many are rather small; ask for one with a view. Breakfasts are terrific, and the restaurant is open to the public for dinner (see “Where to Eat,” below).
