Rather than make our reservation in advance, we decided to just see what was available when we got out to Cheorwon. There were a bunch of "pensions" (what Koreans call privately owned motel-ish places fixed up for vacationers) out near a gorge used in the summer for white-water rafting, but the scenery was a little plain. With a little more exploration we found this place on a pretty remote little road behind a mountain. I'll post outside photos tomorrow; here are the inside ones… Best thing was that it had Internet, a factor that makes ALL THE DIFFERENCE for me in how much I enjoy staying somewhere.
