This ancient museum pretending to be a lodge resembling the Bates Motel used to be, as it says in the newspaper article posted in our room, a "sanitorium for alcholics and the mildly insane. " You would have to be at least mildly insane to want to stay here. The place looks the same as it did when the last inmate left some 80 years ago.
Upon entering, we were told that we were the only guests in this 8 room asylum, but that we would not be disturbed for the balance of our 3 night stay not far from Mt. Ranier National Park. Imagine our surprise early the next morning when we heard "boom, boom, boom" on our door! I had to run into the bathroom to finish dressing. It was our 'gracious' innkeeper telling us we had 'destroyed' her museum and asking us to leave!
Our transgressions? In the TV room downstairs, my wife had left a candy wrapper on the floor. There were 3 pin head size potato chip particles on the couch. And, quelle horreur, we had moved 3 travel brochures from a bookshelf to the coffee table and not put them back. I started thinking, what if I caught my limit of trout in the lake and cleaned them all in the kitchen and cooked them? Would the definition of mild insanity be tested?
There is nothing wrong with museums. Very few of them, however, come with Vacancy signs.
