The Riverwood Inn

Created on 21 April 2014

Riverwood Inn Bar “Inside The Riverwood Inn!” A short introduction to our friendly Roadhouse!

The Riverwood Inn has a full bar, rooms, and the best Mexican food in the world; plus live music on most Friday and Saturday nights! The Riverwood Inn was built in 1937 and is the last of the old roadhouses that populated the Avenue of the Giants which also used to be Highway 101. During the floods of 1964, the Eel River washed away most of the small towns along the Avenue but the river only came up to the back door of the Riverwood, sparing this beautiful building. The building creaks and groans and we do have a documented ghost, however, he mostly restricts himself to the bar hallway and the upstairs banquet room. During the summer months, the Riverwood Inn is a favorite stop for motorcycle and car clubs that travel the stunning Avenue of the Giants. Many groups call ahead and make special preparations for large lunch and dinner groups or room reservations. Travelers can enjoy our special rates when they make the Riverwood their home base for a long weekend in the Redwoods. We are within an hour of Shelter Cove to the west and Victorian Ferndale to the north and we can even direct you to our favorite swim holes on the winding Eel River.
