My daughter, Emily, knows me well. For Christmas, she gifted me a night at the historical Weasku Inn on old Highway 99 in Grants Pass. Perfect for a too-short, but oh-so-sweet getaway. Here’s what happened.

Next year, the iconic inn will celebrate 100 years of providing respite along the rolling Rogue. The old lodge is best known as a favorite fishing retreat for actors Clark Gable and his wife, Carole Lombard, also Walt Disney. I’d wanted to stay there.
