This was the second time I have visited. I am always amazed how much is on display for a private museum. Go, just for the museum. I have looked into most of the rooms and not sure I would ever stay.

The restoration is coming along nicely. But I had no idea how gigantic a collection of artifacts was on display. Unbelievably great.

I especially like the bronze castings. The owners had to completely restore a hotel that was almost a total loss. Windows were broken. It's part of Oregons history that few people knew about even Oregonians like me. I'm going again in September.

Decorated in VERY poor taste. Too much about the Manuel's and not enough about the properties history. NOT rustic, just dirty. Staying-visiting the Overlook Hotel from the movie, 'The Shining' would have been more fascinating and it's not even a real place. If I was...More

Just have to call. They are very reasonable and I think they adjust according to how they are booked and season.
