I took a little walk about in the lovely burb of Applegate, Oregon. The bridge, the lodge, the community “country club”, the little private park, they all called to me on this lovely spring day!
The Applegate River Lodge is a beautifully constructed log style structure build on the banks of the Applegate River, in Applegate, Oregon. It houses a very nice restaurant and bar, seven individually decorated rooms with jacuzzi tubs that are available nightly, as well as world class music events that draw locals and those from far away as well. The front door is always open, your dog will be welcome except for music nights, and you just can’t beat a half an hour on the deck on a spring day.
Right next door is the Applegate Country Club, a place for locals and visitors alike to gather and enjoy a wood-fired pizza and one of many great Oregon beers or wines. The gardens are really coming along and there are blooms bursting now with evidence of more to come.
My last stop was Merete’s Cove. It is a little private park owned and maintained by a local whom I am acquainted with and broke bread with last week. I was grateful the caretaker was around to grant me access. It was such a lovely day I couldn’t help but enjoy this little area that I love so much!
The only thing I didn’t get photos of today was the local market. That will be another time! They deserve a notice too as they are the ones who provide great breakfasts and gas for all of us locals! 🙂 I am so grateful to be back in Southern Oregon! It really is a groovy place to be!
