Patricia Lee has been named CEO of the Minam River Lodge, as the revamped wilderness lodge readies for its second season.
Lee is the former manager and partner of the Steamboat Inn on the North Umpqua River, where she worked for more than 30 years.
She will now oversee strategic and business operations of the Minam River Lodge, which is located in the Eagle Cap Wilderness.
“Pat has a wonderful history of accomplishment, not just in hospitality management but also in creating very special places that help people experience Oregon’s natural treasures,” said Barnes Ellis, owner of Minam River Lodge.
The lodge reopened in May 2017 after a six year restoration project. It is accessible only by 8.5-mile hike, horseback ride or charter flight to its private grass airstrip.
