The Captain Loomis Inn has an exciting history dating back to pre-Civil War days. The original structure was a lively stable until Clarion's first hotel, The Forest House, opened on this spot in August of 1840. John B. Loomis purchased the property in 1845 and brought The Forest House an excellent reputation for food, drink, and hospitality. The restaurant hosts great seafood and Italian cuisine, but don't miss out the Inn's specialty... Prime Rib! After dinner, your just steps away to meet friends for a complete night at the club featuring Happy Hour, live DJ's, bands, Karaoke, and Trivia. There is always a drink on special. Let us host your next wedding shower, graduation party, birthday party, or any other type of private party in one of our spacious banquet facilities.
