Your River Lake Inn hosts, Marv and Anita Bliss, have created a wild life sanctuary since opening the restaurant in 1976.  April through September you can enjoy the hummingbirds swarming to the windows and feeders.  July and August the butterflies are abundant throughout the gardens. October through March view the deer under the lights.
