Kick start

Owner Greg Hennes crowdfunded $107,000 to revive a rundown 1910 landmark at the base of the snowcapped Wallowa Mountains. Now, the Jennings Hotel boasts three design-rich rooms (and counting), like Room Two, a serene space suffused by loft light, downtown views and chic finds, inspired by the Danish concept of hygge (loosely, coziness), the work of Ashley Tackett (not to mention the whole situation sits across the hall from the stylish sauna). Despite the interior allure, the Jennings' proximity to the natural playground of this remote patch of the Pacific Northwest is its primary draw (i.e. pack gear).

Ever the hermit though, I imagine kickstarting a book in Room Two, bundled up in this warm number by PNW darling Bridge & Burn, to the boombox soundtrack of cassette tapes pulled from the supplied collection. Consider me applied for the residency...
