The historic Wolf Creek Inn in southern Oregon offered a relaxing respite to travelers on the 16-day stagecoach journey from San Francisco to Portland during the late 1800s and later served as a refuge for early movie actors and actresses escaping Hollywood. Clark Gable was a good friend of the innkeeper in the 1930s and stopped by several times while fishing the Rogue River just a few miles west of the Inn. Carole Lombard and Orson Wells signed the guest register, and Jack London finished his novel, Valley of the Moon, at the Inn.
