And just to clarify, the golf course at Chehalis has a restaurant, and is located west of the gas pumps. It is a short walk from the ramp.

The airport has a very nice pilot's lounge.

Hi Rick,

We are in Ashland (S03) often (7-8 times a year) and have a rental place there. Perhaps we could meet up for a fly-in and lunch nearby sometime.
RV-6 panel is fine. Just... fine.

Default WA destination

and if you're looking for a nice meal without going too far try Harvey (S43). They have some of the finest steaks around. Had an 18oz. T-bone the other day and it was outstanding. Service is good too.
I think it's called the Buzz Inn.

Default Oregon Coast Destinations

Capt Sandy and I are fond of Pacific City (KPFC) for easy access to the beach. Current favorite place to eat in PC is The Grateful Bread. We really miss The River House. There is at least one hotel in Pacific City. Note, the runway is 1860 x 30 ft, (for 14 with displaced threshold).

One of our favorite restaurants is the Side Door Café. (Not just favorite "airport restaurants".) Land at Siletz Bay (S45), short walk to Highway 101, walk south a few feet to the "Do Not Pass" sign, then cross 101 and there will be a path through the brush going up hill. Very short climb to a gravel parking lot and the Side Door Café will be across the street on your left.

I think Salisham Spa and Golf resort will pick you up at the S45;

Call ahead for to confirm either the Side Door Café or The Grateful Bread is open. The hours change seasonally and they each close for a week or two early in the year.


N174RT (RV-7A) first flight 5/31/11, 1410hrs as of Aug 2018:
Tip-up, Lycon IO-360 EXP, WW 74RV, AFS 5600T, AF-Pilot, GNS-430W, SL-30, ADS600-B, D100 for backup
