A historic example of the 1895–1930 architecture called "American Foursquare," the 1920 Frenchglen Hotel is a simple white wooden house with a porch—Americana at its renovated best. State-owned and managed by John Ross, the hotel serves up a family-style dinner (reservations essential) to guests and the public at the long wooden tables in the combination lobby-dining room. Breakfast and lunch are also served, and meals sometimes incorporate produce grown in the cute
garden out back. The small bedrooms, upstairs off a single hallway, share two bathrooms; five modern units with queen beds and private baths are in the back. Though still a part of the Frenchglen Hotel, the newer addition is called Drover's Inn.
