The restaurant seats 45 and offers a large outdoor deck to enjoy summer afternoons with a lunch and a cold drink. The beautifully renovated banquet hall in the adjacent bunk-house building caters to special events like weddings- retreats- banquets and special occasions. The banquet hall seats approximately 75-100 guests and can be set up with a full service bar. Presently the bunk-house sleeping rooms are leased to a contractor through September. On the hillside above- two log cabins with wrap-around decks provide beautiful Views of the mining valley and the Aurora in the night skies. Each cabin is configured with 4 hotel rooms each with large jetted tubs. One of the many highlights is the Artesian well providing crystal clear mountain water. This property was listed as a Federal National Historic Site in 1979.
