There was a time when highways ran through towns rather than around them. There was a time when mom & pop gas stations would open up at all hours of the night to provide service. There was a time when the family would load up a wicker basket with food stuffs and a satchel of traveling clothes, and set off on an adventure in their Packards, Studebakers, or Hudsons. If this prologue evokes fond memories, then Wilson's Cottages is a stop-over that will make the traveller feel right at home. Built in 1937, this hostel, located near the south entrance to Crater Lake, features individual cabins, built of wood that was felled, milled and finished on the property. Evidences of the craftsmanship involved can be seen in the flooring, wainscoating, doors, frames and sashes. Not that this isn't a sufficient glimpse of the past, but the office doubles as a museum, replete with antique typewriters, power-line insulators, and grocery store items of years gone by.
