The century-old and rustic Edelweiss Inn has been the home of Oregon's Alpenfest since its inception in 1975. It is next door to the Wallowa Lake Tramway, which you'll want to ride to the top of Mt. Howard, and near plenty of lodgings. For lodging information, go to oregonalpenfest.com and click on Where to stay.
The Edelweiss Inn also is near the art colony of Joseph, with galleries, quaint shops and life-size bronzes lining Main Street. Save some time to visit Joseph and historic Enterprise.
