Southern Oregon ADVENTURE

This year, the Bear Hotel underwent a spectacular transformation. This amazing new experience featured a complete redesign, transitioning from Christmas on Mars to a Southern Oregon Adventureland, complete with towering redwoods, Crater Lake, dense forests, flowing rivers, Southern Oregon Coast, and vineyards … all designed by local artists. Truly AMAZING! Southern Oregon Adventure debuted during Rogue Winterfest.

Inside the Bear Hotel an adventure awaits, beginning with a vista overlooking Crater Lake. Pathways lead visitors through majestic redwoods and canyons with waterfalls and wildlife critters created by local artists. A covered bridge opens yet another door to vineyards with rolling hills that make their way to the Oregon coast. And to top it all off … everything was dusted with a layer of sparkling snow.

We are extremely grateful that the new Southern Oregon Adventure display at Evergreen Federal Bank’s Bear Hotel was part of Rogue Winterfest. Thank you Evergreen Federal Bank! Evergreen’s Southern Oregon Adventure Christmas Customer Appreciation Party will be held December 12, 13, and 19. Note that this is a separate event and does not feature Rogue Winterfest trees.
