This is an historic landmark, built in the 1880's with drop dead gorgeous woodwork throughout. The rooms even have genuine antique furnishings that match the building. You will feel like you have stepped back into a more genteel, relaxed time. They installed indoor plumbing in the 1920-30s thank goodness. The shower was hot, the water in the sink faucet actually tasted very good so I didn't have to purchase a bottle of water to take medicine with. You have to remember that this is a building over a century old. It is not a hotel built last year. If you appreciate it for what it is and not hold it to an impossible standard for it's age, you will enjoy your stay here. Remember your grandma isn't as young and spry as your children. But she is much more interesting to be around and hear stories from and about -- just like the Strater.
