Seven Feathers Casino

Tell me, how does a “pinch-penny” find herself at two Casino Resorts within 3 weeks? My only excuse?  I just can’t pass up a good deal!

Allegiant Air’s Wendover air/hotel offer from Redding was just too good to pass up for one, and two, I’d always wanted to stop at the “7 Feathers Casino Resort”in Oregon.  The casino with the humongous big eagle statue is not easy to miss on I-5, an easy drive from Redding.

A GOOD TIME WAS HAD BY ALL!   Isn’t it nice when you can say that coming home from a mini (or any) vacation?

Colleen and I made plans to drive up to Oregon, pick up Shannon in Medford and continue on I-5 to “7 Feathers Casino and Resort”.  And what a great decision that turned out to be for a mother/daughters birthday celebration.

On the way we stopped at “The Station Restaurant” in Rogue River, Oregon for lunch.  Shannon told us they served great salads, and that certainly was the case.  Besides being really tasty, it was the prettiest fresh green salad I’ve seen.  All their menu items looked good, so we ordered a side of taquitos and bowl of clam chowder.  More than enough for the three of us, and didn’t break the budget either. The owner/chef Terry Fimbres was also acting greeter/server when we stopped by.  Shannon also suggested we stop on “G” Street in Grants Pass for little boutique shopping before getting back on the road.  Also, a very good idea, but a little more costly than lunch!

We spent two nights at “7 Feathers Casino”; enough time for two shows, several really good meals and lots of fun at the penny machines.  Surprisingly enough, we all brought a little gambling money home.  It is fun to win for a change.  Thankfully they had a non-smoking room where we did most of our playing. The Casino shuttle bus was available for a trip to the quaint little town (more like the village time forgot) of Canyonville.  We talked to the locals, petted the town cat, and spied a Mexican Restaurant on the way back to the Casino.  Our shuttle driver took us back there that evening, and returned us to the Casino after dinner.  Can’t ask for better service than that – and the Mexican food was outstanding also.  A win-win.

I guess a “little weather” is not too surprising driving south on I-5 back to Redding.  That is, if you consider rain, sleet, snow and ice a “little”.  However, we did just fine driving slow and relying on heavy-tires and a good driver.  I’ll ride with Colleen anytime!
