A Country Inn on the Edge
JOIN US at the historic RimRock Inn and experience unforgettable lodging right on the edge of Joseph Creek Canyon. Our guests often mistake us for a national park - our location and our see-forever views are simply unbelievable.
We offer indoor and outdoor accommodations: 4 fully outfitted, rustically elegant tipis, two adorably refurbished vintage trailers, and one beautiful indoor suite. This is where rough meets romantic and grit meets glamour!
GET OFF THE GRID (and we mean REALLY off the grid) experiencing unsurpassed beauty and history where Chief Joseph and his band of Nez Perce walked. We are 35 miles from the nearest gas station and grocery store. The tipis have no electricity, cell phone service or TV, yet have all the comforts of home! For those who want electricity and to be 100% rain proof, our vintage trailers provide comfortable accommodations. Prefer to be inside? Our indoor suite is perfect for an elderly couple or those who simply want a luxurious indoor room with a restroom close by.
TAKE A COUNTRY DRIVE to see more wildlife, wilderness, rivers and even an old nearby ghost town which features a hundred year old school house!
RELAX AND RENEW YOUR WONDER with a short hike to the south where you can view the Zumwalt Prairie and the Wallowa Mountain range from what seems like the top of the world! Or just simply relax in your Adirondack chair outside your tipi while gazing at the beautiful view and soaking up the warm sun.
DINE AND LINGER over a home-cooked country meal, including a delicious full breakfast, included in your stay. Our specialties are burgers, fries, ribeye steak and everything else that falls into the cowboy cuisine category, including the finest Northwest wines and microbrews.
BE A KID AGAIN Swing on the large tree swing, fly a kite, or ride our beach cruiser bikes on the pathway overlooking the canyon. Play board games with your loved ones or enjoy a good book.
WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR? Book now and we'll see you on the edge this summer at the RimRock Inn.Stay With Us!

Not All Who Wander Are Lost...
One reason the RimRock is so special is that we are removed from the hustle and bustle of civilization yet still so easy to get to. Come join us off the beaten path!
Please note, putting our address (83471 Lewiston Highway - Enterprise, OR) into your GPS or Mapping program will get you here!
From Enterprise, Oregon (all paved):
Go North on Oregon Highway 3 (NW 1st St. in Enterprise) for 34 miles. We are located on the right at milepost 10, about 3 miles past the Joseph Canyon Overlook and ¼ mile South of the Flora Junction.
From Lewiston/Clarkston Valley (all paved):
Go South out of Clarkston on Washington Highway 129 for 50 miles.

We are ¼ mile South of the Flora Junction.
The curvy route over Rattlesnake Grade is especially popular with riders where scenic vistas abound and cars don't. The RimRock is the perfect oasis after the thrilling ride.
If you have a small plane, you can fly into the Enterprise or Joseph Airports, located about 35 miles south of the RimRock.
This is the most direct route to the RimRock Inn! Talk about wide open spaces, we've got 'em! You can land right next to the RimRock in our huge open grassland, walk up the deck stairs and find yourself in our dining room. Yes, it has been done, and with ease!
The OLD RimRock
The Old RimRock in Rural Northeast Oregon!
If these walls could talk you’d hear quite a yarn about the Rimrock’s colorful history. Once a favorite stop for weary stagecoach travelers on their way to Lewiston, Idaho, it later housed a popular dancehall upstairs with quaint country shops below. The beautiful hardwood floors still grace what is now a lovely renovated loft apartment where the current owners live.
Eventually, long time owners Loren and Wilma Raymond transformed Rimrock into a popular eating establishment which featured fresh homemade pies and delicious grilled steaks- a tradition which continues to this day!
The ambiance and beauty of Rimrock owes much to the contractor, Darrell Brann, who had a vision for how it should look and feel. His genius allowed us to salvage everything from the huge planks which were refurbished to be used as our bar top, to the coils from the original freezers which can be seen in the stall partitions that separate the booths.Stay With Us!
