History

Of The Kokanee Inn

Jim and Ethel Chandler opened the Chandler’s Bed, Bath and Trail Inn in 1985. The beautiful post and beam structure, with soaring ceilings and exposed cedar has hosted many memories and adventures over the years. The Chandlers originally furnished the Inn with family keepsakes, including an antique tub, sewing machine and quilts, and these keepsakes remain an integral part of the Inn today. Photos from the early years of the Inn show family and guests high on the Wallowa Mountain trails, and laughing and enjoying time in the Inn. In re-opening the Inn, Eric and Missy seek to honor those early years of the Inn, and offer the same hospitality and adventure that the Chandlers were known for to a new generation of guests.
